Overall Store Rating:

Superb service - by Dave
My order was processed and shipped same day. The website & packing slip both stated the o-rings were to be included with the piston. Upon unpacking my order I noticed that no o-rings were included. I contacted customer service and they immediately contacted the parts dept and my o-rings arrived in two business days. I understand how these issues can happen and was pleased with the proffessionalism and quick remediation of the issue. 03/17/17
President - by Ross
DHC was amazingly helpful. They did their best to find the best shipping cost, method, and timing. I received the product ahead of schedule. Thanks, Ross 03/15/17
Awesome Interaction - by Kurt
I ordered some parts from the web site to have shipped to my house. I didn't realize they had a warehouse so close to me. I received a phone call from DHC informing me that I could pick up the items if I wanted and save some cash on shipping. I picked the items up 30 min later and had my shipping refunded immediately. Good customer service! 03/14/17
incredible service! - by Edward Petrus
I ordered 6 galvanized metal post bases, which were bulky and heavy. Shipping cost was quite high. DHC contacted me to see if I would agree with their plan to ship from a "different location nearer to me" to save shipping costs! Of course I agreed. Awesome that a company cares enough to go to that length to help a customer. I will order again from DHC for sure! Thank you! 03/13/17
