Konis backorder

This is a discussion on Konis backorder within the Suspension and Handling forums, part of the General Help category; I bet with Bilstiens not getting good reviews and people wanting better quality that KYB's the Koni market is flooded....

    Some of the oldest backorders are not being cleared. So we're making progress. Still be a few weeks for new order to be shipped since I have more ordered that any one shipment is bringing it..... But soon there will be no backorders.

    Sam - Is there any way to know when they are shipped to the customer? Not when they are going to be shipped as i know thats not in your control. I was just curios if when they finally come in and are shipped if i will know they are on there way or do i just get a surprise one day?

    They will just show up.... I tend to know when they ship, for the most part... but I really don't have time to then call or e-mail everyone to let them know, as they'll arrive shortly there after anyway.

    I'd love to be able to pass out every ounce of information I get, but the reality is there is far too much. Just the number of tracking numbers I get in one day is at times mind-boggling, let alone the phone calls, orders, general paperwork, packing of boxes, etc.

    you might live farther than me. I'm sure they'll be there soon. Sam's a good guy he'll get them to you.

    where do you live? I'm sure they are in the mail. he has no reason to mail them to me first so I would just wait a day or so. If you are really worried about it give him a call.

    Of note.... I have various vendors, and they get their shipments at various times which I have no control over. When there is a National backorder and nobody has stock, I buy and ship from the closest warehouse to you that I think will have shocks in stock the soonest, trying to get your shocks to you as fast as I can. Sometimes only a west coast vendor has stock, and if you live in the east, I'll send those shocks. But sometimes everyone is out, and it's a bit of guess on if warehouse A will get shocks before B and it's a day sooner or a day later.

    Things would be very simple if I only had one supplier and all orders shipped from one. But in an effort to keep up with demand and supply folks as best I can I have to use different suppliers, and sometimes an order gets caught in limbo when I had an order placed with who I thought was getting them first, only to have them show up last. In the interim I ordered other shocks from Warehouse B a week later, but their order came in first, they get shipped first. Because I don't own or operate Koni, or the warehouses, I'm not privy to knowing to the second where every shock is at all times.

    I just wanted to kick that out there because I had one guy kind of upset, not that I blame him. I think he thinks I stole his money and/or shocks. That's not the case, I'm not going anywhere, and his shocks just happen to be on order from the warehouse who this time just happened to be getting their order last (and last here is a matter of days compared to the "first").
