Vendor rating
« on: June 14, 2011, 05:11:09 PM »
I thought it might be important to share experiences with our various vendors on the list. In the past I have had good experiences with Brooklyn Motor Works, Jim Friswold, Rhode Island Wiring (excellent customer service) and Niemoeller. Although the last time I bought from Niemoeller, my credit card information was used on the very same day the order was placed to but over $3000 of airline tickets, meals and hotel services (all in Germany). I would recommend Paypal when using a foreign vendor. I have had a bad experience with Art at Art's Mercedes Restoration and will no longer utilize them any more, was willing to take back a $335 wrong rear engine mount in even exchange for a $125 correct one. Both parties had some fault in the wrong part being supplied but during the interaction I was made to feel I was the only one at fault. If you have any feedback, good or bad, on the vendors please feel free top contribute.  Stephen

Sounds like a good idea for a sticky topic, so it doesn't disapear down into the forum pages


I have had many good experiences with MB Spares and Service in Canberra,
