PriceMatch™ Frequently Asked Questions

Can I have my PriceMatch™ request processed over the phone or online?

What is the definition of a competitor?

Any company who – like Prater Industries- designs and produces similar processing equipment in a manufacturing environment. This promotion does not include – nor is PriceMatch™ applicable to advertised/quoted pricing from – Wholesale, Resale and Mass Merchant accounts.

What is considered “proof” of price?

Simply provide a valid, non-expired quote and upon verification that what Prater Industries and our competitor quoted are the same, receive your PriceMatch™. Prater Industries reserves the right to call the competitor to verify A) the lower price and, B) availability of the item(s).

What is the definition of “same product”?

Same product can be defined as a fully assembled unit of equipment that is dimensionally, materialistically and functionally identical. The construction methods and materials used to manufacture the parts and products must match to qualify for PriceMatch™. OEM Spare and Replacement Parts that are specifically designed and manufactured for Prater Equipment are excluded from the PriceMatch™ Program. If you have any questions, don’t worry…we can help you through the process.

For pre-engineered and off-the-shelf items, what if the competitor does not have the item in stock or has limited quantities of the product?

If the item is out of stock or the competitor has limited quantities of the item in question, it may not be eligible for PriceMatch™. “In stock” means that the item is available for same day pickup or delivery by the competitor. The decision as to whether or not to apply PriceMatch™ will be at the discretion of Prater Industries.
