Default B4/T4 Parts Availability

Just an FYI to all those wondering where all the parts are at.

There are two factors to why the B4/T4 parts availability are slow (or for some, non-existant) at the moment.

1) Christmas. Always, always, ALWAYS....we get backed up after Christmas. We have to fill 4 or 5 times the amount of parts orders because of the Christmas rush. Just what happens.

2) This year we did our annual inventory at the first of the year, right AFTER Christmas. For those of you that might know, this requires shutting down ALL shipping duties until everything is counted. This takes a little over a week to do, including audits, spot checking, etc.

These 2 factors have put us a little behind on our fill rates. This has nothing to do with the Thunder Tiger merger (I say this because I've read rumors about this).

We are up and running, filling orders everyday, catching up and doing well.

Just thought I'd throw this out there since there is concerns about this issue.

Thanks. Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming....

Great news! There's alot of people breaking T4's around here so that is excellent news for the LHS. I was scared that there was going to be a big problem.

Well, unfortunately, I don't know what is being shipped or where it's going....I do know that we are getting caught up. Just thought I'd share that info....

We're fortunate enough that EVERY Christmas is a good one. Inventory kinda messed things up a bit.
