You may ask how is this merger going to work. Here are some explanations:
PY PHONE NUMBER: Performance Years phone numbers are forwarded to Ames where calls will be handled by our knowledgeable sales staff.
PY MAILING ADDRESS: For mailing purposes use: Ames Performance Engineering, P.O. Box 572, Spofford, NH 03462.
PY OPEN ORDERS: Ames will fill all Performance Years open orders including backorders. If we don’t have the item on our shelves we will process and ship the backorder as soon as the product is available.
PY WEBSITE: Performance Years website will be redirected to amesperf.com where we have a parts search, online ordering, an online version of our catalogs and also where you can request a copy of our FREE catalog.
PY RETURNS: Call Ames @ 1(800) 421-2637 for a return authorization number. With the return please send a copy of your PY invoice clearly stating the reason and action needed. For ease of processing, note the RA number on the outside of the box.
PY DISCOUNTS: Ames offers the same discount program as PY. Orders over $500.00 receive a 3% discount by credit card and 5% by cash. Orders over $1,000.00 receive an 8% discount by credit card and 10% by cash.
PY SHIPPING: Like PY, we use UPS as our primary shipper. In certain limited situations, we may ship with the US Postal Service. Fixed domestic ground shipping rates are listed in our catalog. They are based on your total order value. We are working on restructuring our shipping rates based upon zones similar to PY rates.
Foreign orders will be shipped utilizing either UPS or USPS. Truck freight orders need to be delivered to a commercial address and you will need to speak with one of our representatives for pricing details.
PY SHOWS: Ames attends most of the same shows as Performance Years. We offer free show delivery for pre-orders as well as free non-oversize freight for items ordered at the trailer. With the new Ames show trailer we are able to better serve our customers by doubling our inventory. You can go to the tool bar to the left of this letter and click on “shows” for dates, locations and space numbers.
PY FORUM: Ames will be the title sponsor of the PY Forums while Chris will continue to run and maintain the site.
PY EBAY STORE: We will continue selling Pontiac parts through the Ames Performance Ebay store, user name amesperformance. Ccass1,PY Ebay user name, will be used solely for Pypes Exhaust, Snapping Turtle Straps and GTOG8TA.com sales.
