| | Do Vendors (BTR) Have Too Much Business?
Twice I called BTR asking for help ordering a set of 11/32" pushrods - two weeks between calls. Both times it was "we'll call Trend and get back to you". No follow-up. I had to go straight to Trend to order the parts, which cost me more both for the parts and shipping. It took 20mins for me to complete my order with Trend - including them fielding all of my tech questions while I was juggling my 2 year old's demands.
I get that this is a "busy time of year" - but these are made to order parts. So, beyond potential lead time there should be no good not reason to respond to the customer in a timely fashion with a price.
I am beyond disappointed. Going direct to the manufacturer to get decent service seems to be more and more common in my experience.
