Diecast Select Going out of Business Sale

Postby dbonser » Mon May 16, 2016 8:24 am

I have to say I've never heard of this site: http://www.diecastselect.com

I wonder how many other have never heard of it? Maybe that's part of the problem...

Looking at it I see they have a 2016 copyright, so I guess they are a new shop.

Because no one has heard of them, they at least have a little stock that is sold out elsewhere.

Now I just need them to move on from the 'Phase 1' sale to 'Phase 2' and 'Phase 3" and it might become interesting.

I thought I'd bump up this thread as their sale has moved into "Phase 3".

PHASE 3 SALE: Prices will be reduced to less than our cost (this is very sad and weepy part). NOTE: Currently, our prices are approximately 10% below our costs.
.

I bought a few things last night (new Sparks and obsolete Bizarre models for $40). Website ordering was very easy. I should receive them next week and will let you know my thoughts.

Thanks for the information!

I've just ordered two lovely Minichamps Buick concept cars from the 50s, the Centurion and the LeSabre, at almost half their regular price and with free shipping! A great deal! :)

Just a word of warning for anyone looking at a potential Diecast Select order.

Their "Free shipping in Continental U.S." does include the East Coast. After I queried being charged $12 for shipping to New York, they revised the website shipping description to "Free shipping to some parts of the continental U.S.". To be fair they were kind enough to refund the $12 when I pointed out their error, but it took a few emails to get their agreement.

Has anyone received their orders from Diecast Select yet? I'm being cautious about ordering from a company going out of business.

Got mine today as well. I'm happy with all the models and the outer cases are all in perfect "as new" condition. My only gripe is the models weren't wrapped in bubble wrap, and some were placed right next to the side of the box meaning one decent hit would probably have cracked the cases. Fortunately that didn't happen.

I bought the 1:18 John Lennon "Psychedelic" Rolls Royce Phantom V from Diecast Select and I am extremely happy with my purchase. It was the last one available and the price was a steal! The service is friendly, the car was immaculate, it was shipped right away and arrived safely. Superb service all the way! It is a shame they are going out of business, but the prices right now are great! :D

I wanted to buy two models from them but it seems they don't ship outside US, Canada or UK. :x

Have you sent them a message to ask? They may be willing.

I did, but they never replied back. Sent a message on their FB page as well, let's see if it works.

Bruno, perhaps you try contacting a few forum members who live near Diecast Select and who might be prepared to order and on-ship for you. JBRedondo (Jerry), PhilSaunders (Phil) and Seppuku (Tommy) all live in California.

Thanks, Ian! I will definitely try to do that.

The seller replied to my e-mail and he argued that "it´s too much trouble (What?!) and shipping costs are prohibitive". :roll:

I sent another e-mail to him, so if he is not willing to sell those items, I will use your approach. ;)

In my dealings with them I've also found them to be a bit difficult and lacking in customer focus. I'm happy to buy from them opportunistically at cheap prices, but would never consider them for my primary source of models. That's probably the fundamental reason why their going out of business !

Unfortunatelly, the seller is not willing to ship outside North-America and the UK.

Does anyone want to give me a hand? :?:

I don't mind ordering and then forwarding on to you. Note that US Postal Service options can be expensive. For instance a $100 value 1 kg package to Brazil costs $33.50 (this cannot be insured or tracked).

If you want insurance & tracking it is $50.60 for shipping. :shock:

If it's no shipping outside your own country I can see why, but the U.S., Canada or the UK? What, except the English language, is the connection? :?

That's weird. I already bought from American sellers and never paid more than 34 dollars including tracking.

It is a mistery to me as well.
