    Shipping Slowing Down

    I've been waiting on some parts for a couple weeks now, usually only takes 4 to 5 days from supplier, I'm assuming possibly a shortage of delivery drivers?

    Anybody else in this situation? Our county is on lock-down and as of yesterday, I think the whole state has restrictions invoked, listening to the news now. PJ

    Paul - what do you see on the tracking search? Is the package stuck along the way, or has it just "disappeared"?

    Thanks.

    I have to check Tom, a little lazy on my part, already mowing grass in some fields, getting equipment fixed etc. Have to check the mail this morning. PJ

    Just checked and my order from LBC came in this morning. Have another order out there from eBay and have no idea where it's coming from, not important though.

    I sent an order to Moss online Monday and tracking says it is out for delivery right now. They said they have to ship from the Virginia warehouse as California warehouse is completely shut down. Some employees working from home to take orders. Victoria British is shut down for now.

    A post on The MG Experience said that as of 4:30 p.m. yesterday both MOSS locations were closed until further notice. I hope your package got out of there before they closed down.

    It did come today and everything was included. I wondered how long the Virginia warehouse would be allowed to stay open.

    As long as no one becomes quarentined they will have limited personel box and load parts. Office personel tkae the orders at home and pass to warehouse. Shippers have limited drivers as they come down. All my order places tell me it will come whenever they can process and get to the delivery guys. Amazon driver said to leave boxes in sun for 6-8 hours or use disenfectant as they warehouses personel are tested and some warehouses are contaminated.

    I will say that I'm glad I got a Moss order in last week. It arrived at my house the same day that Moss announced they were closing down the Virginia warehouse as well. I'm glad they're taking care of their staff, and I'll certainly have more orders to come this year.

    But I am happy that I'll be able to disappear into my shop this weekend and get my Morris back together. It's a welcome distraction to everything else going on.
