Thumbs up

Another vote from me for Oakos.

I purchased a set of Mcgard lug nuts that turned out to be the wrong thread size. ( This was the fault of Mcgard as they were packaged incorrectly)

I contacted Dave at Oakos and he responded immediately, he was able to contact his supplier to correct the problem and sent out new lug nuts via 2 day special mail.

Dave picked up the shipping cost including the return of the wrong lug nuts.

I will certainly look at Oakos first for any of my future purchases.

Thumbs up You cannot go wrong with Oakos.

Ordered Rota Subzeros and MacGuard Spline drive lugs from Dave. He was incredibly responsive to my questions, got the wheels in faster than expected, promptly sent tracking numbers, offered an amazing price on everything, and was overall a pleasure to deal with. He even accommodated my request to get 5 wheels so I could have a full size spare.

There is no question that I will order from him again and strongly recommend him to everyone.

Excellent vendor.

I've now ordered twice from Oakos. David Kearney is a pleasure to do business with. He sends emails promptly and fixes problems with no fuss whatsoever. When McGard shipped him mislabeled boxes of SplineDrive lugs and he unknowingly sent them out to customers, he shipped the right ones out the same day he got them and paid for the return shipping on the wrong ones that I received.

Last week I ordered Samco intercooler hoses at a price to good to ignore. The only way shipping could have been faster is using teleportation!

No complaints and I will definitely keep them in mind for future purchases. Big thumbs up!

Default Great Vender!!

David at Oaks Outomotive is one of the best venders on NASIOC, the replies as quickly as he shipps your products. I had a bad lug nut and emailed him about it hoping to get a new one. No questions asked: he said I put one in the mail today! Can't get any better than that.

Another thumbs up for Dave at Oakos. Great customer service and communication. My Samco hoses were shipped out quickly, and I recieved the parts with no problems.
Keep up the great work...

Ordered from Oakos the second time, and Dave's customer service was just as great as before. I placed the order on a Wednesday, specified 3 day shipping, and was surprised to find the package at my door on Friday. Dave is exceptionally responsive, and his communication is professional and friendly. He initially made a small mistake with the shipping option, but noticed that quickly, and ran down the street to the UPS office to correct it before the package left!

I had another telling experience a while ago. Oakos added an item that I believe is inferior to their catalog, and I e-mailed Dave telling him my opinion about the product. I could imagine that most vendors would interpret that as critisism, and wouldn't be too pleased about it. Dave thanked me for sharing my opinion, explained why he decided to carry the product, and invited me to send suggestions and ideas for additional products anytime. He also said that he would check out alternatives, and in fact added an alternate product to his catalog a while later. I'm not sure how big my influence was, but Dave always shows that he genuinely cares about his customers.

My second order from Oakos was purchased online and they sent me a pm regarding the Denso spark plugs which took all of three days to get here and were of course the correct ones. So this is another thumbs up babay

Default Transcript of my transaction

Thursday 1:00 PM - place order for Kartboy shifter bushings

Thursday 5:30 PM - I get what seems to be a personalized e-mail message saying that my item was shipped. If the e-mail was automatically generated, it was so good I couldn't distinguish it from a personalized e-mail, so he gets full credit either way.

Friday 3:00 PM -
spouse: "Honey, you got a package today."
me: "I wan't expecting anything. Who's it from?"
spouse: "It's from oak oh's"
me: "huh?"
spouse: "OAK OH'S"
me: "huh?"
etc...

Now I'm just waiting for some of his other stuff to get back in stock.

Thumbs up

Just thought I'd bump this with more props for Dave there at Oakos. I've had great service from him there before and even better service from him today.

But isn't it Sunday? Yup, Sunday and he's still making sure everything is in order. Heh, I don't usually expect anyone to be back in the office to check up on anything until 10-11am on Monday and was quite pleasantly surprised that he's gotten back to me today, not once, but twice already. Definitely big props for Dave.

Thumbs up More Bumps for Dave@Oakos

Oakos' customer service, personalized responses, and amazing shipping time are benchmarks for online ordering. I've ordered from them on three separate occasions, and each time I get the initial automated confirmation, followed by a personal email from Dave containing a shipping number. I'll second the motion for Dave to expand his catalog...

Thumbs up Top Notch

As far as I'm concerned, Oakos is the benchmark for online auto parts vendors.

I ordered a set of McGuard splinedrives and a separate set of McGuard wheel locks. A day later, I received an email from David notifying me that he'd received a combination set of McGuard wheel locks and splinedrives that was cheaper than buying separate sets of splines and locks. He sent me the new combination set, and I saved $10.00. This is a perfect example of customer service.

David might have lost $10.00 on this sale because of his business ethics, but his actions guarantee that I will buy from him again and again. I also hope that Oakos expands their product range, because I'd rather deal with them than any other vendor.
