It is becoming apparent that our current level of orders is the “norm” and despite our best attempts to reduce lead times, it is simply not going to be possible. Since October 2016 we have had a very consistent level of orders and it looks like this hight number of orders is here to stay.
As a result, we anticipate our lead times to remain at upwards of 2 weeks.
Unfortunately, the current lead times are simply the downside of our own success and theres nothing that we can do about it.
We do plan on adding to the team towards the end of this year, but until the uncertainty surrounding our EU exit is confirmed, we cannot take the financial risk of employing any additional members of staff.
Until then, all we can regrettably advise is that you place your orders well in advance, to ensure that you are not left waiting.
This time last year we were fitting out Danny Hopkins Jensen Interceptor on the Practical Classics stand, at the Practical Classics Restoration Show. This year the car is being finished off on the live stage and Andy will be on the live stage, getting interviewed by Danny about the project (Sunday @ 10:45), so make sure you check it out.
We can't wait to see this this beautiful Interceptor finished.
