Store Policies

The following are policies we have had to implement due to customer abuse of our friendly and honest service since we opened for business in 2005.
 

Ordering

EFFECTIVE 09/01/10:
Updated 03/04/11, 07/19/12, 07/27/13, 04/01/15

Minimum Order is $00.00 effective 07/19/12 including phone orders outside of 100 mile radius of Blue Ridge Hobbies  retail store.
Effective 07/27/13 - Orders under $25.00 will have a mandatory $3.00 service fee to cover credit card processing fees.

When ordering your choice from Blue Ridge Hobbies , you are receiving the lowest price at the time your order an item. Products are subject to availability and are usually shipped to you in 3 to 5 business days from when your order date (unless otherwise noted an order status page, email or phone call you may receive) most times orders are shipped within 2 to 3 business days and within 1 business day shipping on in stock** items shipped next business day.

All prices are subject to change until paid for in full and some quantities may be limited by the manufacturer or supplier.

All availability is subject to change due to system updating which is done after 8am each day. We do our best to keep the inventory updated throughout each day to provide our customers with the best in stock information possible.
100% accuracy of information is not guaranteed.

Our customers are amazed at our great fill rates. With our ability to complete your order as fully as we can within 2 to 3 business days stems from our total commitment to providing our customers the best possible rate of fill during the processing of your transaction. No one at Blue Ridge Hobbies  likes "out of stock" situations or incorrect information on our website. We do our best to prevent these situations with 4 major wholesalers located around the USA. Also, where applicable, we work directly with manufacturers to offer the lowest possible prices!

To assume that any dealer or hobby store carries everything in stock at all times would not be a realistic expectation. We do have a rather large inventory of items to support our customer's needs but it is very important that you understand, to keep our prices as low as possible we have adopted a completely different business model than our competitors.

Blue Ridge Hobbies  has a large buying power world wide with numerous wholesales and manufacturers. These relationships allows us to supplement our inventory with over 140,000 additional model railroad items though our website, all available to procure the next business day if needed. In most cases, we opt to keep prices lower and use the 3 day ground shipping option from our wholesalers and manufacturers to Blue Ridge Hobbies  store or warehouse.

This allows us to be more efficient and offer our customers outstanding fill rates and low prices without the burden of huge inventories. We make every attempt to alleviate
"out of stock" situations and incorrect information on our website. This means that the chances are excellent that Blue Ridge Hobbies  will be able to complete your order and ship 100% of your merchandise in the allotted processing time. This also helps us keep our prices down.

All products sold by Blue Ridge Hobbies  are new, with full manufacturer warrant, unless otherwise noted in the item description field.

Remember, there really isn't a need to call us and ask if a certain item is in stock when we can usually get it for you in one, two or three business days.  If an item will be out of stock you will be notified via email or phone or at the bottom of your receipt. Also, you can use the shopping cart comment box to advise BRH how you want BRH complete your order in the event of a back order.

ORDERING SCHEDULE:

The following schedule may help you:

Blue Ridge Hobbies® usually within two business days.

Telephone Orders:

Effective 06/01/10 and updated 03/04/11 all phone orders or order additions to shopping cart / online orders will require a 5% fee of the total order. This is being done due to the extended time that phone orders take. In most cases, customers have already looked at our website and just have not finalized the online orders.

**** We no longer will be able to honor online sale prices for telephone orders. To get sale pricing, your order must be placed via our online shopping cart.


On Sale Pricing:

Effective 06/01/10 we will no longer adjust any pricing differences in retail store between on line sale pricing vs. in retail store prices.
**** If you would like a product based on the on line sale price, it must be ordered on line via our shopping cart. In the event that pricing at Walthers.com is lower then the prices currently available via  our shopping cart, you will, at minimum, get the Walthers.com pricing. Please note the price difference you are looking for in the comment box with a note preceded by *********** and then your comment.

If you order 1 when the minimum order is 6, your order will be changed to a quantity of 6. If it is minimum order of 12 and your order 1, your order will be changed to  a quantity of 12. And so on. This is done because many items we sell, such as scale lumber, come in packs of 25 or 50 and these packs can not be broken and shipped or sold in smaller quantities. The change in quantity does not update on the shopping cart. It is updated when your order is placed for "picking" to fill the order. You will not be notified if you order incorrectly. Any returns under this scenario would require a 20% restock fee and require an RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) before the items can be returned.
