Spent a fair amount of time on the phone yesterday.... Friday that is. First call was to locatebearings.com talked to a guy named Larry
- yup, they got em in stock, lots of em. Wanted to drop ship them to me via UPS. Said no thanks.. please ship via USPS. He says hang on -- so I sit on hold - and it ain't a 1-800 #, so I hangs on. Larry gets back on the phone, says his shipper will only ship via UPS, don't trust USPS. So I says, I don't like UPS -- charge more for handling than the 2 bearings are worth -- Larry agrees. His shipper still won't ship via USPS.
Soooo... hmmm. Then Larry says - hey, did you try Motion Industries? No.. I didn't. Motion didn't come up in a search for the Hyatt 1204T bearing. He says, it shows here that Motion has em in stock. Then he says -- they are in Canada too. Ding Ding Ding
Canada you say
So I calls Motion. Get the US office. Go through the questions -- and yup they have em in stock. Then I ask them do they have them in stock in Canada. Yup she says. Then she transfers me for wherever in the US she is to my local Motion Industries here in Moncton
Yup, right here in River City. So I talk to the guy. He don't have a clue and can't find em. So he says, leave me your phone number and I'll call you in a couple days. I have a feeling I will be able to get the bearings locally and at the same price, which works for me.
