THE BANDIT'S HOBBIES ADVANTAGE:
The difference between Bandit's Hobbies and so many other internet sellers is that everything shown here on our web site is actually on the shelf in our hobby shop and not sitting in a distributors warehouse in another part of the country. We made a decision almost 30 years ago not to be a 3rd party re-seller like some of the other internet sellers. Our current in-stock inventory has a value of over $250,000.00, so for you our valued customers, you get your item(s) at least 3 days sooner than had your purchase been made elsewhere.
For the 2018 Holiday Season, we anticipate no delay in getting customer order(s) pulled, packed & shipped out the same day as the order was received due to the fact that everything shown on our web site(s) is actually in stock at our shop. As of 12/8/18, we have not experienced any delay in getting new products from our distributors in generally a 3 day time frame. We just received a large Lionel order that only took 4 days to get to us from our Nebraska distributor.
Why should we waste your time reading a long drawn out definition of what "IN STOCK" means when you could be enjoying shopping here on our site with the satisfaction of knowing that you will receive the item(s) you select. How simple can that be?
Our customers get their items sooner because they don't have to wait for us to order and receive their items from one of our suppliers before we ship them out. As a valued Bandit's Hobbies customer, this is a real BIG ADVANTAGE , as 98% of all our orders are shipped out the same day that we receive your order.
