Thumbs down Turbo-supply.com

14 days ago i ordered a 4an oil feed line from this we site, after good words about them from others here. 26$. 14 days, and 5 e-mails later i have nothing to report, other than the fact that im getting a bit agervated. I know of others here that have had luck getting parts from this vendor, but i guess im an un-lucky one. I have e-maild them 5 times with no reply, and there web site does not list a phone number. Has anyone else had the same kinda of situation with this vendor?


Thanx for listeneing to me whine, cheese will be served now.

Looks like some people there have had some delays in shipment.

I can get you you hooked up with just about anything fitting related, may be a day or so for me to get it, but if they make it I can get it. Let me know if you would like me to help.

Isn't Priority Mail supposed to be guaranteed 3~5 days delivery? Or did the USPS get rid of that?

It's the holiday season. They're probably shipping their asses off.


FedEx:

"Consistent with the provisions of the FedEx Service Guide, the money-back guarantee for on-time delivery will temporarily be suspended from Dec. 18 through Dec. 23....When you ship with FedEx Ground or FedEx Home Delivery®, the money-back guarantee will temporarily be suspended on packages tendered during the 14 calendar days before Christmas (Dec. 11-24)."

That translates to "your **** will take forever."

I bought some oil drain line from them and it took a bit longer than it should of. I probably won't buy from them again, even though they have really good prices.

Glad you got your item though.
