Notice of possible service disruption Between the last week of June and the first two weeks of July, Briggs and Stratton will be implementing a global update of all systems. During this period, there will be no movements of parts or engines from their distribution centres.
This will impact on our service to customers. In readiness for this, we are endeavouring to increase our stocks in line with anticipated sales over this period however, it is inevitable that some items will become out of stock due to unexpected sales trends. Similarly, many less popular parts ordered through the special orders system which we do not hold here, will experience a fairly substantial delay. We are already noticing some disruption in parts movement as Briggs prepare for this monumental change.
We shall endeavour to keep customers informed where we become aware of any orders or enquiries for parts affected. Some anticipated availability times will no doubt be somewhat disappointing but we will try to be realistic rather than promising something that is unlikely or unachievable.
All being well the disruption will be kept to a minimum and our increased stock holdings will largely allow the majority of regular orders to be processed as normal. Appologies in advance for any inconvenience that this may cause
