Default Bert's number not working?

Hi All,

Is Bert's number still good? I am trying to contact them about an order and all I get is that the number cannot be completed as dialed. Anyone else having this issue? Fires maybe?

Mike

I see you're in Oakland.

This seems like one of those disaster movies...about half way through...people are calling out, but can't REACH ANYONE!

Steve, your number was in and out for me last week when I placed an order. Both the direct number and the 800 number. I tried back later and got through. It was also doing it last Monday when you were out of the shop. Maybe something going on with your phone provider....

Apperloo,
Bert’s Model A Ford Center in Colorado has new and used parts.
When they were still in Denver one of my customers spending some time in Denver noticed his motel was a mile from Bert’s.
Since I’d had him buy several pats from Bert’s he decided to drive over there with his wife.
He said Bert’s gave them a tour through the warehouse and showed them all the parts cars they had.
They were treated exceptionally well.
It’s been a year since I bought a used axle and bearing from them and everything came quickly, at a decent price and in VERY GOOD condition.
They will also give you free and excellent knowledgeable advice. A pleasure to deal with them.

Thanks for the kind words guys. We only have 4 phone lines, and when they are all busy, you either get a busy signal or if calling from a cell,phone, you get a message saying the lines are busy. Most folks all want to call first thing in the morning and the lines are much less busy late in the day.

I will check with my provider as I hand dialed his number into my phone and it gave me the error message. But I got through on a land line and as usual I was treated super nicely! They are my go to supplier, nothing back about any of the others I just prefer Bert's.

What I've been seeing is I get a rapid busy, which means the trunks are full to the area. Give it a couple of tries. Getting through to Steve at Bert's is worth the wait. Thanks for all the help with the car I got from you and all the help with the other parts we've needed.
