Has anyone ordered from NCP Hobby lately? 
 
Is there a phone number for them somewhere?
 
Thanks.

When I want something that no one else has I give NCP a shot, if he has it just be patient, it will show up. If he doesn't have it you'll get a refund and an apology.

Be careful with NCP. I had a nightmare situation with him. No parts, no response for ages, and took forever to get my money back.

At all or most of our ages the key word is have patience, if we are meant to have it the product will show up, eventually. Health issues plague a lot of the guys that have been around so let them know what you need then be patient.

 

Or, try doing some research and try building one from scratch. There are lots of good leads here and in sites from England, good parts too.

Ok. Do NOT buy from NCPHobbies!

 

I called multiple times before placing an order, maybe 10 times and no answer throughout their business hours. All you get is a voicemail message to email them. I e-mail them to ask if the items I was going to place were in stock. Never a reply even after a week goes by. Still no reply to this date if the items before purchasing were in stock or not. So I placed the order and was under the impression all items are available, why cause you can put in the cart right? NO items showed out of stock or not available. I placed the order, all items still showed could be purchased, the transaction went through and so my card was charged. I get an email my order was placed and my card was charged by my bank also. 5 days later well guess what? I get this email:

 

Good Morning

 

Sorry to inform you the chassis will not be in until early next week, they were supposed to be in earlier this week but they are still at the platers getting plated, so I have refunded your card

 

High Speed Items no longer available

 

Very sorry inconvenience

 

Have a Great Weekend

 

John

So what people are saying is true. DO NOT buy from NCP, they are disorganized, have no customer support phone or email, they don't even reply to calls or emails, and are slow to reply (when they have the interest to do so) and have a lousy website, and are a broker it appears. 

 

Their reply was lame also, if the chassis was delayed then send it when it becomes available or let me decide to cancel, don't just cancel the order, how lame. Let me decide if I want to wait or cancel! How retarded. This comes off as an online broker/seller- avoid them. They act like but don't have anything mostly. They put up a website they don't really manage or update and come off as they have it all but what they are really doing is getting items from a 2nd or 3rd party but take your money first, provide no support to calls or e-mails and when they can't deliver because it's out of their control you get back-paddle answers that make no sense or are not justified. Sometimes you will have a hard time to even get your money back. Some will play stupid and try to keep your money and play the replacement game. In this case I got a refund so that's good at least. 

 

I will never try to buy from NCP again though. 

 

PCH which is https://e-slotcar.com has been my go to and will be from now on as Pacific Slotcar Raceways and Slot Car City!

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free. - Ronald Regan #40 (1911 - 2004)
