Default Buying Honda EU7000IS locally or online?

I prefer to help out local businesses, but none of them have the Honda eu7000is in stock and don't expect it til Dec or Jan 2019, and they say Hurricane Florence is the reason. And even if they do get it in stock, they are charging me shipping of at least $199 on top of the $3999 price tag.

But online businesses like electricgeneratorsdirect.com and campingworld.com have the eu7000is listed at $3999 with free shipping as well as free crate curbside service.

Does anyone have any recs on where to buy this machine? Should I slog it out and stick with local? Or just go with online for the convenience factor? I know there are people here on my past forum searches who suggested local business who ship nationwide with great prices and free shipping, but those links no longer work.

I bought both of mine online. I got a real good price from electric generators direct. Honda usually has a sale around November and takes $100.00 off and if you pay by check electric generator direct takes more off plus free shipping and no sales tax. Total was $3700.99 delivered. If you can wait until November I would.

I bought mine locally, filled with gas and oil, ready to roll Like you, I like to support my local dealers.

A buddy bought online and had to deal with shipping damage, kind of a hassle to deal with.

Sounds good - if I can't find something local that is cost effective, I'll stick to electric generators direct. With Michael and Florence out of the way, I should be done until ice storms arrive. I'll see if they have any sales in November.
