Any of you ordered chainsaw parts from LawnMowerPros?
What did you think about their shipping time?

As some of you may know, some efco parts are hard to find. I found all I needed from these people with very good prices and really good shipping cost.
I submitted a small order and paid with PayPal.
That was a week ago tomorrow and they have not shipped!
I contacted them and was told it takes three to five days to ship my order.
I have never encountered this SLOW shipping from any vendor I have used.
Even the Greek guy ships to my home in SIX days!
I realize some large companies ship two times weekly but never saw this information on their site.
I guess this will be my first and last order, not that big of a savings.

I've come across them on the Internet. 

I had the opinion that they were another non stocking Internet dealer. They have to order your part in from another company.

Your experience may be fine if their parts source works out for them.

I have ordered from people like these and wait two months for delivery and the Walbro part came direct from some other source I never herd of?

I ordered a lawn mower part from Equipatron that listed Chicago as their address. But the bill came from another company in Minneapolis and the part came from yet another company within 10 days from Dallas. It fit perfect and everything was fine.

This is just to let you know how the Internet world is?

I have ran into waiting at other places when they had to order the part in themselves. Before they could ship to me. I had 1 thing holding up a big order once. But it is what it is.

Lucky for me that it is only a small order that I am not in a big hurry for. Guess I will just have to be more patient.
If I ever order from them again, I will check and see if they have the part in stock. I buy a lot of items off eBay and I pass on sellers that take five or more days to ship, after I make immediate payment, and have contacted them and they agreed to ship next business day.
Thanks for the Good useful advise--guess I need to change my attitude!

amlost another randy thread. outdoordistributors  is bad for a 25 cent item holding your order up for a month or more. when i first started my shop i used them for some of the stuff i couldnt get locally and was never overjoyed with their timeframe of  dropshipping items nothing actaully in stock it was all drop shipped and nothing shipped untill it was all in stock
5105H and 6400H in stock

The Walbro part I ordered was through Outdoor Distributor's Pole Barn in Alabama. The part eventually came after a ridiculous 2 months time direct from a company in NC which probably had to order it too?

I ordered a part from E Replacement in early November and after 12 business days, they shipped it. I ordered another part the same brand from them on December 10th and it still hasn't shipped. E replacement is actually in the Salt Lake area.
