You might be here because you received a 'buffalo nickel' in one of your packets of clips. We've been including buffs, or our store card so-called dollars, in our orders for a couple of years now, partly because we want to thank you for doing business with us and partly because we'd love it if you caught the numismatic bug (if you haven't already).
On a philosophical level, we are trying to make a statement too. We want to tell you that we appreciate your business and we want you to appreciate the stuff we send to you.
Automobile manufacturers set standards for their OEM clips. Our suppliers strive to meet those specifications.
Some people don't care about quality, they can only see price. Those people are not our customers. When a shop tells us they can buy more cheaply online, we tell them to continue to do so and we cease calling on them. Guess what!?! More often than not they end up calling us back to request we begin to service their account again.
Actually, most of our new business comes from word of mouth referral because our customers really do believe they receive excellent value for their money.
We have had customers, large industrial customers, who have happily purchased our clips on amazon and then used the same listing to purchase from other sellers for less money only to find they have just bought junk that may not fit right, or doesn't have the same 'snap' when engaged, or breaks when being installed.
This is when we usually get a phone call to place an order from us direct. Some have asked how there can be such a noticeable difference in something that looks nearly the same. We explain that a certain kind of nylon is specified for use in specific clips, and accurate clip dimensions are critical; most of the companies in China that produce knock-offs don't know or don't care....but their clips sure are cheap.
We can't afford to sell poor quality clips because we sell to real, live, auto body and mechanical shops each and every business day. It is what we do.
Our clips aren't the cheapest but they do cost less, which is the best reason we can think of to 'Buy the Buffalo!'
