I am a bit spoiled having a Summit warehouse 30 minutes from the house if I need something quick I just run in there and get it. If the order is over $100 and I am not in a hurry I just have them ship it since its free and normally get it within 2 days max. On occasion for some odd reason they will ship a part from Ohio that is in stock at the Arlington warehouse and that's normally at least 3 days. The other day I ordered a HVC 2 coil from Jegs because Summit was out of stock and it was on my doorstep in 3 days

I've shipped and recieved quite a lot from JEGS, Nickels, Summit and Amazon last few months. I've been totally impressed by how fast you get things UPS, Fed Ex and Amazon nowadays.
What I have noticed is, the boxes look they're dropped off the Empire state building when you get them. I got a BBC hydraulic roller from Clay Smith today, those people know how to box and ship a camshaft. I was totally impressed how they protected it for shipping.
I haven't experienced any problems receiving items from any venders listed, they've all been excellent.
Guys... as a Manufacturer / Supplier (Collector Tethers & Drag Race Solutions) for both JEGS and Summit you can't believe how hard it is right now to fill orders. We are a small company and I know it's harder for larger ones right now.
Material that was in abundance is now hard to get, then you have anodizers / chromers that are covered up and way behind.
We're even struggling getting tooling in instances.
We will predict a backorder based on normal circumstances and then bam we get hit with one of the above.
When a backorder gets delayed like mentioned its from the supplier not the vendor you're dealing with.
