Pirie Performance Products "F" With BBB
Ordered an aftermarket product from Eric Pirie a VERRRY long time ago...
MANY months ago he charged my card.
Could NOT get ANY update via email or phone (had to leave messages) Left inquiries once per week over the course of a two week period several months ago after my card had been charged. Resorted to inquiring (email and voice mail) twice weekly. Eventually every other day... then daily.
Ultimately once the frequency of my inquiries got his attention... he replied my order would ship "soon"....
.... For the next 3 weeks waited quietly after that reply.... At present....Going on a month later.... lather-rinse-repeat... he is again unreachable, and I'm still empty handed.
Did an internet search, he has an "F" with the BBB < (see link) for these same shortcomings, and there are an abundance of similar grievances on other forums.
If he gave as much consideration to our peace of mind as he did to processing our Credit Cards, we'd certainly not be kept in suspense.
An occasional ETA, acknowledgement, or even the time of day would have prevented me mentioning this here.

  • ...not answering phone
  • ...has not replied to several recent emails
...still no product delivery.
I'm sure its not personal, research indicates this is par for the course.

If you are in the same boat, and sense Pirie Performance Products is ignoring your inquiries... you're not alone. If you sense their spartan responses and assurances fall far short of their ETA's, you're not alone, if they charged your card so long ago that a charge-back option has expired you're not alone.

One last thing I hope we all eventually have in common is this;

By all indications we'll get what we paid for eventually. Have not heard he stiffed anyone all together.

Back when I ordered looked like so...:wave.
By the time the order arrives, umm, hope not this far out :gerg

Have you thought of disputing the charges with your credit card company?

I would have been on the phone with the CC company after 3 weeks, especially if the vendor was dodging my calls.

Try contacting your state's attorney general's office. That office should have a consumer protection division, and investigators sometimes are willing to write a letter to the vendor on your behalf.

Naked no more
Guessing he is swamped with orders for his products. I ordered a competitior's version to protect mine until he ships.

You might see if you can find someone on here that lives in the area to go by his shop and ask him about your order

Just sent them an email. Told them they made beautiful products but I was afraid I'd never see em. Also told em tighten things up a bit and they might see my$$$$

Great ideas...
I tried something similar based on the previous two posts. Will update how it goes.

Still find no evidence Pirie disappears without delivering, but never dreamed an order would drag out over 4 months and counting, with VERY misleading ETA's the few times he would respond.

Un-nerving yes, but small businesses often shun their phones when swamped.
I promise to update if/when the product is delivered and installed.

Glimmer of hope
One of Pirie's retailers said they are expecting items related to what I ordered over 4 months ago. :thumb

Item received and installed this week.
Patience is a virtue.
Nice product.
