Does anybody here do business with Discount Hydraulics? I have been a long time customer and for the most part pleased. Starting in November of last year noticed taking longer to get my orders processed. I know they moved into a new facility. I placed an order 10 days ago and it has never been shipped. They don't respond to text messages , emails and don't answer the phone.

I haven't bought from them in about a year. My previous purchases were pretty prompt.

Yea I've done quite a bit with them over the years, no issues with my orders.
But reading some reviews looks like they might be having issues???

re: I know they moved into a new facility.

well I went from 3200 down to 200 sqft and can't find ANYTHING....

it could just be they have the same problem, just worse. A bigger building and nothing where it USED to be.

I buy from them on close to a weekly basis and historically (almost 20 years) delivery times have varied a lot. They have always had a check box to opt for ship complete or ship partial and backorder.

Things may have slowed down a bit but nothing substantial. They dont seem to be turning things around same day but if my items are in stock they usually ship in one to two days. If they are out of or short on something it can take a week or more which is nothing new.

Choice of shipping options have improved. Used to be just UPS and I got orders next day but it was a little pricey. They added USPS which is cheaper and seems to take a day longer but does add Saturday delivery for orders placed later in the week.

I am surprised they are not answering the phone. I have not called in a while but always got an answer when I did or if not a prompt call back. Phone staff was always very helpful about modifying orders if I forgot something or sending replacements when they occassionally shipped the wrong fittings - e.g 6401-08-06 instead of 6401-06-08....

My luck , if I was their 'picker' is that the two items you need are diagonally opposite in the 50,000 sqft warehouse. To get them is a LOT of walking !!! with no time to run and answer your phone call...... :(

If you know where it is NOW,....why (clean up/reorganize) NOW?
Just leave stuff, where you know it has always been!
Depends somewhat on your age,... I suppose.

Yeah…that was MY philosophy also…. But the Gigadier Breneral has ordered it cleaned up “for safety” during our upcoming Solar Eclipse Party… we’re expecting 50-60 people,…so-far.

I ordered a batch of hoses in February. It took 5 days and a phone call before they shipped it - silence before then. Not, IMO, the greatest service, but the hoses seeem decent.
