I was on the phone with a supplier and wanted to argue with him. It took immense self-control.
We needed an actuator for a maintenance project, so I called the supplier for a quote.
The actuator cost between $15,000 to $25,000 depending on the condition.
He had one serviceable (SV) and overhauled (OH) unit.
He asked me what condition I preferred. I told him it depends on the tag date, but I prefer overhauled.
In a quick reply, he said he had both, but he’ll quote SV as why would I pay for OH when SV costs less.
