July 14, 2022 Update
Sales continue to be very strong:
As more and more people learn about the expanding line of MotoTote products, the demand and backlog continue to grow. We are very thankful for this but also humbled because the challenges are frustrating and sometimes feel overwhelming.
However, we are motivated and so continue to work hard every day to ramp up and eventually catch up with the backlog to reach our goal of getting back to samde day shipping and staying there continually.
Once a particular product comes out of production and the warehouse is restocked, we ship all outstanding orders in a very short time.
Tubing shortages: The large diameter tubing for the MTX Platform on the Max and Max+ has been in short supply. We had been promised delivery last week but that didn't happen. Now, we're hoping to receive it this week. If that happens, then we'll be able to finish the batch in time to ship in two weeks (a two week delay) - last week of July.
All the material was received for the Mini BUT the small diameter tubing was out of round so had to be returned to the supplier. We're now waiting for the replacement tubing which is promised for this week. If that happens, we'll be able to finish the Minis in time to ship next week (a one week delay) - July 22.
The ETA dates on each product page have been updated accordingly.
Sport and m3: Expected ship dates of the Sport and m3 are holding so far. Keep an eye on those product pages. The components shipment is in Long Beach, wating to get on a train to come to the Texas factory.
As a reminder, for ship dates, please check each product page. If the product shows "In stock", then it will ship the same-day if you order by noon US Central Time. Otherwise there will be an ETA date.
Don't forget, we offer pre-order discounts on carriers that are backordered as a "Thank you" for your patience!
Feel free to contact us anytime.
Thank you for your patience and support!
