Action Import Motors ships to addresses in the 50 United States, with the following exceptions:
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our customers and hope to offer additional shipping options in the very near future.
At this time, Action Import Motors only ships to locations within the 50 United States.
The product you have ordered is currently unavailable at any of our warehouse locations. This item may not have been available either when you ordered it originally or another customer’s order placed ahead of yours may have depleted the available inventory. We apologize for this inconvenience.
Many backordered items are restocked within 3 - 10 days. With that in mind, we will keep your order open and do our best to ship the item you ordered. If you would like to cancel your order, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In some cases, the manufacturer may have a longer lead time then what they actually stated, committed to, etc. and thus the re-stocking of our warehouse may be delayed for longer than 10 days. Again, we apologize in advance if this happens, but this is beyond the control of Action Import Motors. We will do our best to ship your order as soon as we receive the product.
In other cases, the manufacturer may only produce a limited quantity of a specific item (this is called “constrained” in the industry). This quantity may not be sufficient to satisfy all of the orders placed for a particular item either with Action Import Motors and/or our competitors. Action Import Motors will attempt to fill as many orders as we can, utilizing a “first in, first out” logic. We apologize in advance if we are not able to fulfill your order.
Finally, in some cases, the manufacturer may choose to discontinue an item, even though the channel has quite a few orders for a particular item. This will force us to cancel that item from your order. Again, this is beyond our control and we apologize in advance if that should happen.
If you would like estimated time of arrival of when we believe the manufacturer will ship us the backordered item (ETA date), please e-mail us at email@example.com or telephone us at Toll Free 1 (888) 352-7743 for an update.
