PAW is the worst for customer service!

You'll be happier ordering them from Summit.

I have never bought from PAW, but Summit is outstanding for price, customer service and quick delivery.

A lot of PAW's stuff is 'white box' stuff. I think it's factory seconds stuff. The last time I bought from them, I ended up throwing away a set of rod bearings that seemed to be made wrong and had negative crush.

I ordered a lot of stuff from PAW when I was building my 460. I found their service to be just fine, however they can be out of stock on items at times. They were good about telling me this at order time and, since they were usually 5 to 10% less than Summit/Jegs and I usually didn't need the items quickly, I'd wait for the item to arrive. They send you a postcard int he mail when the item arrives in stock so you know it's coming.

Overall I'd recommend PAW. Just make certain your order is in stock and you're good to go.

Regards,
Brian

Brian,

They are a bunch of A holes! Did you ever have to return anything to them? They send you what they want and if you don't like it or it's freight damaged, tough! If your order works out, then you got lucky, but if it's gonna cost them a dime extra to satisfy the customer, forget about it! It ain't gonna happen! I spent about $6,000 with them in 2000 and had a freight damage problem. They were N0 help!! Sorry it's FOB your house! Too bad! It only cost about $380 to re-order the missing parts. (I bought the missing PAW parts from Summit, not PAW)! They asked if I wanted a catalog with my $3000 order, and they charged an extra $30 for it!! They suck, and I can't recommend them to anyone! Sorry, but you got lucky!

Now, as a shining example of great customer service there is Summit! They are the greatest company I've ever dealt with! I wish my own company was a good! Two thumbs up for Summit, they are worth any premium cost,(if any over the smucks at PAW)

Nothing personal Brian, but I really HATE PAW!

I just have to 'ditto' all of the Summit thumbs-ups. You just can't go wrong.

I live in Southern California. If I place an order in the morning, and it is in stock at the Nevada warehouse, (which it usually is) I almost allways recieve my goodies NEXT DAY. And that's the base rate $8 for s/h, not even the 'priority' shipping option. I haven't dealt with PAW; don't have any desire to do so, either. Summit treats me too good.

If you live in Canada, the dollar exchange, shipping, and customs takes too much of our money, so I try to shop in Canada. I use a shop in Alberta called 'Prostock'. I have had great tech support and service, as I know what I want to do but need help where I don't have the experience. These guys have a stroker Windsor package that they dynoed for 500HP and 500ftlbs torque that they have sold tons of. They have beat any local prices for any part so far; they sell so much stuff they buy from the manufactuors. Apparently the build an average of four motors a day! They put small orders on the bus and truck larger heavy stuff. They even built me a tranny for my application cheaper than lacal quotes.

i too cannot recomend paw. i have bought stuff from them in the past but i was not impressed with their customer service. summit on the other hand goes out of their way to make you happy. npd also has great customer service. it took less time to get out of stock items from summit and npd than it took to get in stock items from paw. and i only 500 miles from each warehouse.

I had a client that bought a bunch of silver crap from PAW they said was chrome, but chrome casts a reflection kinda like a mirror and this stuff had no polish at all, they (whomever they are) had plated the plain old sheet metal surface and he ended up buying new stuff.

V8 Thumper, looks like I am veering toward that direction. Let's say that I'm "beginning to see the light"

PAW specializes in "production rebuilder quality" parts. Mostly no name or secondary supplier stuff. Almost always white box no lable. I buy from them only when I have to and or have exhausted all other alternatives. I still wind up purchasing a couple of thousand dollars worth of stuff a year from them. Mostly obscure parts like std. bore high compression pistons for a 351C or 390 FE. It always takes ten days or more to recieve my order and the phone reps are always very rude. Actually condesending is more like it. Summit is a very good mail order house.
In about two weeks MMR (Moneymaker Racing) will begine accepting plastic so maybe we can offer eveyone some additional alternatives.

Jegs is right up there with Summit, I ordered a transmission from them, Z spec T-5, it arrived two days later, 600 miles away, now thats service.
They are located in Columbus, Ohio and have a great store/ warehouse.

I haven't had any real problems with PAW but as soon as I started using Summit I dropped them. It is so great working with Summit that I can't see why I'd go back to PAW. I've only used Jegs once and my only observation is that it took a lot longer to receive my item.

I love Scummit errr Summit . I have never had a problem with them. Last thing I got was a set of 4.10 FMS gears that the pinion was chipped on from the factory, I just sent them right back to return them without a problem (I wasnt going to have a chance to put them in for a long time after the weekend I got them). I love being so close too, I order it one morning get them the next day all without paying sales tax .
