New MCI $250 minimum for parts orders
« on: February 05, 2013, 08:41:21 AM »
MCI has just instituted a $250 minimum for parts orders.  There will be a $30 shipping and handling fee for orders smaller than $250.  No shipping fee for orders $250 and up.  This isn't great for me as I almost never need $250 worth of parts, especially as MCI's inventory of Dina parts gets slimmer by the day.  I guess I'll be ordering through C&J Bus Repair now, but it was so much easier to order online from MCI.  MCI used to ship any order online for free and gave a 1% discount.

In the old days, I one time ordered a $4 Dina body part from MCI.  MCI actually bought the part from Marco Polo in Brazil and had it shipped to them and then to me.  I never expected that level of service and would not have been upset if they said they couldn't get the part.

So now we just need to pool our very small orders into one bigger order and then ship the specific parts to the people involved using the good old USPS "if it fits it ships" boxes. Very cheap! I have always been thankful for the technical help at MCI and the easy order and shipping online. Times are changing! 

Thank a farmer ;D

Just a thought!
