Well, thanks for the heads up on Yanmar. My first attempt to buy parts. And so far, it's difficult to even get straight answers. To very simple questions. Three part numbers, are they in stock, can they ship to the Turks and Caicos
Toad, so far, does not answer any of those questions. They sent me an email
with a link to the places they can ship to, instead of just answering the question. I think typing either "yes" or "no" would have been simpler and faster.
The list of places is US states. And Bermuda
is on the list of US States. BUT they say they can ship to 75 different countries, but now in my third round of email exchanges with their customer service
people, they don't seem to be able to answer that very simple question. Can they ship to the Turks and Caicos
. It's a yes or no question.
They're in the far north. SURELY they are not swamped with boat owners at the moment. It's below zero there.
If they can't answer that question in two days of email exchanges, I am thinking I really don't want to put much effort into trying to establish an account with these guys to help me support these old engines.
Which is what you guys are telling me.
(Edit) I just got a reply from Toad:
"No. We can't ship Yanmar products to the Turks and Caicos, as displayed by the listing of states found in the link that I sent you identifying the territorial guidelines for Yanmar product.
The balance of the products we sell, can be shipped to the Turks and Caicos.'"
Not sure why they thought a list of states would answer the question about what countries. But at least I got the "No" part of it. Which is also my response to the balance of whatever products they sell.
