It doesn't matter, no big name supply house will sell to anyone anything, motor or toilet paper, if they are not in the trade.

Around here supply houses only deal with contractors who have a business license and State issued tax ID number on file,or their employees. If Joe Blow wants to become a handyman LLC and open a line of credit then they'll sell him the motor. If they don't want to jump through all the hoops to buy wholesale then Graingers or an electric motor retail place will be happy to take their money. IMO saving $50 on a motor or $8 on a capacitor once a decade isn't worth the hassle of filing taxes four times a year let alone paying the business fees.

That's what I was meaning to say! They always ask for your employer and varify that they are on file as legit hvac contractors. I myself have tried to purchase while not on a company payroll and no dice, and everyone here knows me.

Thanks Marty, well worded.

i have never had a problem purchasing anything from johnstone supply. i don't get the wholesale discount, but that's fine with me. they always ask what company i am with and i tell them i'm not with any company. they are always helpful and are willing to answer any of my questions and i have never had a problem purchasing any non-refrigerant items there.

i'm not sure if johnstone's is considered "big", but they are great to me. i'm in san antonio, texas if that matters.
