Moss Motoring Winter Edition 1984

Keeping You Posted: Warehouse Changes Will Give Better Service!

In the ever-changing world of Moss Motors, progress continues to be made in the streamlining of our various operations. Since the purpose of our efforts is to give you, our customers, better service, we thought you deserved a progress report…

MGB owners will be delighted to know we now have the largest, most comprehensive supply of parts and accessories for all years of this great British sports car! (See separate article about our new. 104-page catalog.) Owners of Triumph TR250 andTR6’s will now be able to buy parts from us. Although our new Triumph catalog is still being worked on: publication scheduled for mid-1984. For the time being, TR250 and TR6 owners should use the old “Start Your Engines” catalog (available upon request) and an Interchange list we supply, which converts SYE part numbers to Moss part numbers and gives current prices.

All this has resulted from the incorporation of “Start Your Engines Ltd.” into Moss Motors’ operating systems. The inventory has been moved from Beltsville, MD. to our Rockaway and Goleta warehouses. All mail and phone orders are being handled via our Goleta office, with shipments being made from whichever of our warehouses can give faster service. Under normal conditions, the result is faster, more efficient shipment to our customers, a reduction in shipping charges, and standardization of pricing from all locations.

Don’t conclude from this that “Start Your Engines” is no longer around! We have merely changed the structure to utilize all our resources most efficiently. “Start Your Engines” is now the Division of Moss Motors that specializes in Used & Rebuilt MG and Triumph parts. Our skilled mechanics provide a rebuilding service for engines, transmissions, rear ends, carburettors, etc.. and we maintain a huge inventory of good quality used parts. The rebuilt parts are a great benefit to those customers who live in areas where there are no mechanics willing to work on MG’s or Triumphs. Our used parts can be a real boon in those instances where a new part is not available, or where a good used part is an acceptable substitute for an expensive new item. In addition, our Beltsville showroom has been rearranged for improved Counter Customer service, and our inventory at that location is in the process of being expanded to include parts for MGT-series, Austin Healey and Jaguar XK-120/150. (For the next couple of months, while we complete the transition, we suggest you call ahead, (301) 937-0313, before driving to Beltsville to make sure we have what you need at the counter.)
