Sellers of propellers can include wholesalers, who offer a bulk discount on large quantities of propellers. They often sell to airplane, jet, and boat makers, or mechanics who fix up these propellers using various parts. Many manufacturers of marine, wind turbine, and airplane propellers, boast websites that allow interested consumers to browse selections and make inquiries.
Sellers may feature engine/drive selection tools, propeller model catalogs, dealer locations, and product support information. Consumers may be able to search for products, such as steel or aluminum blades by number, model, price, or brand. They may provide free quotes and estimates on bulk jobs, selling both new and used propellers at various price points. Shipping and delivery options can be specified by the customer as well.
They may provide referrals to engine and propeller technicians who are skilled in repair, maintenance, and installation. Such technicians may have attended trade school to learn the necessary skills to repair small engines for inboard and outboard motors and turbo props, while others have pursued higher learning education schools to learn more advanced concepts regarding repair and troubleshooting of high performance marine boat propellers and aircraft propellers for flying large jets.
These propeller experts should have an eye for detail, steady hands, and be technically proficient. They should have good time management skills to complete the job on time. They should have experience working with all types of propeller blades, such as wood and aluminum, along with fuel tanks, and wings, and other related components.
Sales associates that work for manufacturers and dealers of flight and marine propellers should be knowledgeable about basic offerings and services, first welcoming the consumer to the business, then providing more detailed information pertaining to their needs.
