Order Process

The order process starts when you call in to our salespeople, and an order is created. This order is routed to the appropriate area in the warehouse, where the parts are then pulled and packed. After the parts are double checked and packed into a box, the paperwork is then billed. We use the least expensive and quickest shipping method in order to get your parts to you. We do receive a discount from various shippers, and pass that discount to our customer. Our goal is to have every order entered before 3:00 shipped on the same day.

If you are in the area and choose to pick up your order at our local counter, we can have the parts waiting for you when you come in. We sell to hundreds of customers at our city counter each day.
