Purchasing Officiating "stuff"
« on: September 15, 2016, 10:13:00 PM »
2 Questions:

1.  In your opinion, what is the best website, if you use one, to order supplies from?
2.  What is the turnaround from the day you order?

Thanks
If you didn't see it, you can't call it

One Stop out of Birmingham. Honig's, and Reflocker. One Stop and Honig's have a larger selection than Reflocker. All of them have overnight options. Never had a problem with any of them.

I've ordered from a number of places over the years with varying success...

Getofficial.com - out of KC, MO.  I've ordered before in the morning and had stuff the next day without paying for expedited shipping.

Ump-attire.com - have had good luck with getting stuff from them relatively quickly.

Honig's - Good success

theofficialschoice.com - NEVER EVER ORDER FROM THERE AGAIN.. they usually have great prices on whistles, but it then takes forever and a day to actually have it delivered.

PurchaseOfficials.com has a shop in Atlanta so I typically get my orders within two days.

only ever been to honigs.  Never any problems/issues.  AND, since they have a shop in Palm Beach, FL, I just call those guys (vs ordering through the site) and they get it right out ASAP.

Honig's has been fantastic. I had an order I placed a couple of years back on a Wednesday for something that I absolutely needed that Friday night in Richmond, and requested the next day air.  It shipped out of Raleigh; they only charged me for ground service, and I had it on Thursday.

I've also had good luck with Terry's Official Call at www.theofficialcall.com, but with them being out of WV, I've yet to get something next day without paying extra for it.

I ordered from 1 Stop in Birmingham Alabama on a Friday afternoon.  It arrived at my house on Monday.  Awesome customer service.  I live in Mississippi, so it might take a little longer if you live in another state.

I ordered a shirt from One Stop on a Tuesday afternoon at 3 p.m and got it the next day right after lunch.

and/or Honig's. Have had great success with both. Prices and service comparable.

+1 for One Stop.  They genuinely care about getting quality stuff to officials in a timely manner.

Ditto.  Honig's quality seems to be going downhill.

agree about Honigs, at least their FL store....pick up my things personally and will not do unless absolutely necessary....Gerry Davis is another supplier...stock a lot of Cliff Keen.

Gerry Davis and Purchase Officials....echo the sentiment on Honig's stuff over the last few years.
