Originally posted by Bror Jace: "...May be I should call Chevron and see if they can help me locate some." Maybe, if you find an eager dealer who is interested in possibly drop-shipping all over North America, you could talk one into being a sponsoring dealer on this site? Lots of interest in the products but so far no one has stepped up to the plate. --- Bror Jace
quote:I've gotta agree with your attitude toward this. I couldn't find Mobil 1 ATF anywhere. No one stocked it. My mom's mechanic, a former Mobil station operator, didn't even know it existed. I finally found the manager at one of the local retail outlets and after talking with her for a few minutes she agreed to order it in for me. When I wanted to buy Mobiltrans (since my AX15 requires GL3 spec fluid and the dealer charges $15/quart) I called the regional distribution center and they agreed to sell me the 5 gallon bucket of the stuff (@$105). So my question to widman is: Although it would be cost prohibitive to stock all 700 products ...surely you have the capability to order all 700 products, correct?? Are you some how penalized (or rewarded) for a volume in a given line. That is, is one case of something going to cost you more "per case" than if you order a gross (or whatever is the next "lot")???
widman, I know you wouldn't stock everything Chevron makes ... but wouldn't you try to order case loads of a product for a paying cutomer? I just don't see why turning that business down makes any sense in this day and age ... unless there's a problem with the company's distribution system.
