I ordered a set if wheel hubs for my yerfdog 3 weeks ago from bmi karts because they had a good price. No notification anything has shipped, they dont answer the phone and i havent gotten anything. i paid for 5-7 day shipping and nothing at all.. it was like 40 bucks im kinda getting upset. Is this a normal thing from bmi. I only order from amazon, monster scooter parts, ebay and gps usually.

Ordered over $400 of stuff from them a few months back,, & all the small hardware ect. ,, was just thrown in the big box ''loose'',, with 4 polished Douglas rims,, that were pretty much loose also,, with just a thin layer of paper between the rims.:eek:
Could not believe that they couldn't even put the hardware ect.. at least in plastic bags. :rolleyes:
Was ''real'' lucky that the rims didn't get jacked up.
Called them on it also,, & the girl acted like she didn't even want to be bothered,, plus gave me the run around with trying to pass the buck ect.
Will never order from them again.
I would send them an e-mail stating that the BBB might be getting notified,, & see if that gets the ball moving ....

I purchase from Komet Kart sales now,, & they are awesome ! (y)
Excellent shipping rates also. ;)

Komet treated me ''real well'' !!
''Super cool people''. (y)
Got a ''rare'' / ''very light weight'' Coyote Bullet front bumper from them, that they had hanging in the back,, for a song.
Didn't charge me Jack squat for shipping either, & it was a big box, & packed ''very well'',, with all the other stuff also. :)
Honestly, I don't even know how they could even justify the cost ...

Lastly,,
GPS's shipping rates suck, & never any discounts.
I try to avoid them like the plague because of it,, & also think that they are figuring they have the Monopoly.

Never had a issue from BMI………now gopowersports on the other hand is a different story. Won’t ever order from GPS again.

I swear you'll have better luck buying from GPS off of Amazon than through their own website. At least most of their stuff when I've ordered off of Amazon had Amazon Prime shipping.

My my what happened? The last time I was regularly here on DIY, we all loved BMI and GoPowerSports.

Does GPS still honor our 10% off code "DIYGOKARTS" (I think it was)?

So they discontinued the discount codes I think 2 years ago now for here and Youtubers. When they did that, they were doing a giveaway on their website each month. I have some guesses why they discontinued all the discount codes.

If I had to guess, when CarsAndCameras, Red Beard's Garage, Rather Be Welding, and all the other larger channels got the GPS sponsorship and the discount codes, I think they started losing money possibly.

I don't think they lost money, discount codes promote business.
Instead, I think they got greedy.

That's a high possibility and probably the reason. I mean how often will a 10% discount code get used when there's probably a few thousand out of a few million subscribers to the channels that use it?
