Thinking about buying a display model to save on your budget?
No box . . .
If you're unlucky, you might not notice you're missing a piece until your fixture starts leaking. Whoops.
Labour, Labour, Labour
Except now you have no box, no instructions and are probably missing parts. You suddenly find yourself paying a plumber an hourly rate to run all over town in search of the exact screws in the exact colour you need to match your fixture. And because he has no instructions, it's going to take him a lot longer to install it.
Suddenly, that great deal has cost you more than you would have paid for the item in a box, with instructions and all the parts included.
Maybe it wasn't such a great deal afterall?
