    I ordered 5 of their Oxblood/Maroon chicken head knobs for my Tube King on Wednesday and they still haven't arrived, even though they're less than an hours drive from my house. AND, I e-mailed yesterday inquiring about the status of the order and I have yet to received a reply.

    Anyone here dealt with them before and if so, what was your experience?

    I've dealt with them and my experience was pretty similar to yours - they don't answer emails and take ages to ship stuff. I'll be going to mojo next time.

    They have been talked about many times as having poor service.
    It is a place best to avoid.
    I have read countless posts about people not getting their orders for a long time and they will not answer any emails or phone calls.
    I don't know how they stay in business with the kind of reputation they have.

    I used to use them but had so many problems with poor customer service (ie. none) that I gave up on them.

    Please get the word out to avoid them. I hope they get shut down!

    I ordered something, then after 2 weeks, I did some research, and found out about their horrible service! So I tried to cancel it, but nobody picks up the phone, and their message box is FULL! I wonder why! The package finally arrived today, but I am returning it; I ordered what I needed elsewhere, and it came quicker. AVOID AMPWARES

    Yea, I'm an idiot for ordering some caps & pots from them and then saw this thread like a few hours later. Two weeks ago and have heard nothing. Does anyone know if they send you an e-mail when they ship or should I just expect that it will arrive at my door one day?

    I would love to cancel, but I have feeling it's not worth the headache in this case. They'll just ignore you!

    i posted a similar experience. i eventually got my stuff.

    from what i've read, they will not rip you off, but neither will they ship fast nor return your emails.
