Default SoCal Diesel and Guy Tripp

I'm sure this is not the right place to post this, but I'd like to give a shout out.

Dealing with Guy @ SoCal is a pleasure without having to wade through any of the prima-dona companies that compete with him.

Parts get sent out in a timely fashion and are as advertised. He has bailed me out of a few jams and gone out on a limb, without batting a lash.

Heads up, good company and person to deal with!!!

I had a problem with a parts I pruchased through Guy. His comments to me were every business is going to have some failures and setbacks, it's how you deal with those that make the difference. He did a amirable job dealing with those. That's the kinda businesses you want to spend your money with. Hats off to you, Guy.

I agree. You can also always get in touch with Guy and he takes the time to explain things to you.

Thanks for all you do Guy!! You always return phone calls in a timely manner, always work out any issues until the customer is satisfied, and are never to busy to make sure that the questions we call with get answered. Top quality business practices that many others should try and emulate.

I think you should write a book "Being a good vendor for dummies" and make it required reading for all vendors, or at least a select couple

Everything said is very true. He has helped me long before I purchased major parts from him. Even his wife goes out of her way to make sure Guy gets messages asap if he is unavailable.

Thanks again for the awesome motor Guy!

You hit the nail on the head, Rob. Guy is one of the best business men I know, and has always treated me right. Thanks for posting this thread, it's not often that anyone does this.
