White’s Australian Dealer?

Recommended Posts

Another forum member was wondering what the price of the new Goldmaster 24K might be in Australia. In the course of researching that, I see Goldsearch Australia is closing down.

Does White’s have any other dealers in Australia?

I have bought some of my gear from Lost Treasures in Brisbane, my former home town... They sell Whites, not sure if they're an official dealer?

No they don't, He was the sole importer and all Aussie Whites machine had to go through him, I had words with Steve Howard at Whites about 3 years ago because GS added about a $300 price hike to all of their machines and I told him that is would destroy all the good work that the previous owner had done and people would just not buy them from him because it is cheaper for people to import them from the US or here and he  said there was nothing he could do and that GS told him that they had to raise the price,

With the birth of the GM and the Equinox the home team and Nokta and Deus have cornered the VLF market as I warned them they would, It annoys me because I did my best to promote Whites in Australia and I did try to tell GS this was going to undo all the work that had been done but they would not listen.

The last time  checked 3 months ago they were charging $1550.00 AUS  for the MXT AP and now they are selling the MX Sport for $1350.00, The point is I can supply them to folks for $910.00 AUS plus about 30 to 50 bucks postage So anyone who buys from them would be a fool to shop there.

And it's now about time White's dealers in the USA were allowed to sell directly to Australia !

I buy my White's stuff from the USA anyway....drop ship through Oregon (I think) and then onto Australia.

Even with the added shipping cost, savings are around 30% minimum.

Well I get them from the company I have dealt with for over 12 years and just post them back home to Aus, I don't think I have ever paid more than a $1000.00 including postage so it keeps it under the taxable threshold.

Actually the $1000 threshold has now gone so it is 10% GST on anything that arrives into Australia regardless of age.

The savings are still very good though.

White's detectors have such a huge markup here in Australia when compared to other imported machines.

Dear Mr White....🤔

Us Aussies love White's detectors and now that we no longer have an AUTHORISED White's dealer here in Australia, can you please relax the conditions on your White's dealers in the USA to allow them to sell directly to us............pleeeeezzzzz.....😫

Yes we have some general 3rd party detector sellers but not that long ago, one of them went bankrupt whilst still selling detectors that many people never got !

Thanks for your consideration...

When I detected Aussie Land a few years back I built some good customer relations.  Since then I have sold a few machines to folks over there.  If any of you Aussie's are wanting one, let me know and I'll see what we can do.  Don't want to step on ones toes though and I might get told NO from White's but I heard things are changing for the better.

      We know are heard that Lost Treasure magazine is no more. Well I just got Western & Eastern Treasure Magazine off the news stand and it was the March issue. What I didn’t know it’s the last printed copy we’ll see . It will be offered a digital copy and I’ll post that below. The picture is the front cover of the March issue and like said the last .

      Minelab is a division of a larger publicly traded company, Codan. That means we can peek at annual reports to learn a bit about the metal detecting world as far as size and sales. The competition is all privately held so numbers are hard to come by. From Codan 2018 Annual Report (October 2018):
      "In FY18, Minelab had another exceptionally strong year, with revenue of $164.0 million which delivered a segment contribution of $64.1 million. While sales of our GPZ 7000® top-of-the-range gold detector remain strong, they are being complemented by significantly higher sales of the new Gold Monster® and SDC 2300® detectors in Africa.
      Minelab’s base business is comprised of recreational products sold into Australia, Europe and the USA, a level of gold detector sales into Africa, Asia Pacific and Latin America and sales of countermine products (detecting and clearing improvised explosive devices) globally. In the past, Minelab has had base-business sales in the range of $85 million to $95 million per annum. The combination of the EQUINOX® coin and treasure product release, an expanded gold detector range and Minelab’s entry into new geographic markets has increased the base business to around $110 million per annum.
      As was the case again in FY18, periods of stronger demand for gold detectors in Africa and new product introductions can push these revenues significantly higher. African demand continues to be driven by the superior performance of our products rather than gold surges. Existing customers are upgrading their GPX® gold detecting equipment and new customers are buying the entry-level Gold Monster®. It has also been pleasing to see a resurgence in demand for the SDC 2300®, a detector that is exceptionally good at discovering fine-particle gold. This changing sales mix has further diversified the business but has resulted in lower average margins for our gold detector products in Africa."
      FY18 SUMMARY
      Another exceptionally strong year, highest sales ever Successful release of the revolutionary EQUINOX® coin and treasure detector Diversified gold detector sales in Africa, less reliance on GPZ 7000® Delivered a significant order for the countermine F3 Compact™ detector Continued investment in new product development FY19 OBJECTIVES
      Maximise and diversify gold detector sales globally Expand distribution in Latin America through our new Minelab presence in Brazil Continue to expand our retail distribution channels in USA and Europe Complete the Countermine dual-sensor development programme "While we are confident of continued success in FY19, the unpredictable nature of our sales into Africa makes forecasting difficult for this business. In the past, Minelab has had base-business sales in the range of $85 million to $95 million per year. The EQUINOX® product release, coupled with an expanded gold detector range and Minelab’s entry into new markets, have increased this base-business by more than 20%, to around $110 million in sales per annum."
      and the part we all want to read:
      "Minelab continues to invest in product development for recreational markets and has a number of new, improved metal detectors in the pipeline."

      Well I received my December 2017 mag from Lost Treasure today and just on the inside of the first page is the new MX 7. This has to be the same detector that Tom has been swinging around with a orange ring around the face. White's is offering you a look at the detector by way of a video on their site.
      The only thing said is a test was done with a 8.5 gram 14K gold ring at 14 inches saying gonna need a bigger shovel. I guess to find out more we all need to look at White's video on this detector.
