I tried to place an order with Parker yesterday and got an email back saying they can no longer sell to USA and Canada.
Anyone know what's up with that?
Too bad, they had great prices.
WOW... that's a shocker!!!Akirasho

... were you trying to order something specific? Some vendors cannot or will not ship certain items because of possible liability issues (MET helmets for example).

If true, that really sucks (they'll have to change their name to Parker Partly International). I've received flyers from them... I'd have suspected that they recognized the addy.

I guess I'll email 'em myowndamnself and find out (couldn't get their site to come up... but I recognize that there have been internet attacks over the weekend and in to today)!

I was ordering Conti and Vittoria tires. I got a group buy together and we were ordering 30 tires. They definately had the best prices. Now with the weak $, the other UK shops don't look so good.

They said that they are no longer mailing to USA & Canada. Sorry folks! The guy couldn't give me a reason, other than to say it was something that was out of your hands.

You could try the below. I think they ship. I am not connected to this company in any way other than being a customer. They have some good Conti deals.

... the news is bad, but I appreciate the efforts!

I used Parker International for items not easily found in the US market, but I've got a couple other overseas sources... too bad.

Hopefully it's a temporary situation.
