Backorder / Wish List Process - There are many situations possible when we may not have stock on an item that you want to order at the time when you are placing you order. We may be temporarily out of stock as the result of a supply situation from one of our vendors or also it can be an issue where the product is not available because we internally need to manufacture that specific item in order to fulfill your order. Our company is very unique in that many items that carry a "PMTR" part number prefix we manufacture right here in Michigan and if the item you want carries that part number prefix it is highly likely we can fill your backorder by manufacturing to your order and still ship on a timely basis. BACKORDER OPTIONS - There are a number of ways that you can address the issue where we have something you want that is not immediately in stock. After some experience with our new online ordering system we have disabled the direct backorder placement as part of a normal order process because that would then cause your credit card to be pre-authorized and held for that amount or in the case of a PayPal payment you would be paying for merchandise that is not immediately in stock and in either of these cases we were concerned about how that would impact our customers. To work around this limitation the system dos have the capability to alert you when an itemis back in stock - Click on the link that is shown on the item "product page" for out of stock items that indicates "email me when back in stock" and our system will generate an automatic email to you when the item is again available and will provide a quick an easy link to "add to cart" and order that item directly or if you need a substantial quantities of any item please just send an email direct to us on : [email protected] with any part numbers, quantities and delivery requirements.

WISH LIST PROCESS - Your "wishlist" is associated with your unique account and allows you to save a listing of products that you might want to buy in the future. Simply click the "Add to Wish List" button on a product details page, and the product will be added to your wishlist. Your wishlist can be viewed at anytime by visiting this page on the link you will find as "View My Wishlist" after login. Whenever you're ready to purchase an item in your wishlist, simply click the product's "Add to cart" button on the Wish List page.

Order Issues / Feedback / Order Support - If you have questions, issues or just need help on any order or assistance of any kind please email us at : [email protected] and we can then respond directly via email or call you on our "dime" if you include your phone number.

In our online shop we can accept American Express, Discover, JCB, VISA and MasterCard credit cards as well as PayPal payments for domestic and international orders. Orders from some countries such as Nigeria, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia can not be accepted because of rampant credit card fraud in those areas. All orders are subject to a requirement that the credit card must be issued in the country where the goods are being shipped and for your protection we use global AVS (Address Verification Services) anti-fraud technology that requires the address and zip/postal code must exactly match what your card issuer has on file.
