  • Open Day Promotion Now Live...

    As you know... we're holding an open day here at Brickwerks this coming Sunday.

    bagonowt

    As a reward for turning up, drinking our tea and eating our butties (butties are sandwiches in the North, not slang for "friend" or "mate") we're offering a 10% discount on all orders placed between now and Sunday for collection on the day.

    So, this is how it works.
    On the webshop (HERE) you'll see a random product. A "Brickwerks Big Bag of Nowt".
    **bag not included.

    Buy one (they're free!). Add the rest of the items you want to collect, and select the "Collection in Person" shipping option.
    Go through checkout, pay for it. Done.

    We'll do the rest. And there might be some other freebies in there too.

    If you dont add the bag, you wont get the discount. If you dont select the "Collection in Person" you wont get the discount.

    Barring any cock ups with stock levels everything is in stock if it says it is barring a few drop ship items.
    Drop Ship items are included in the discount promotion, so you can order them but you won't be able to collect on the day for obvious reasons.

    I think thats clear?
    Yep... clear as mud.

  • Postage... and why we do what we do.

    Once again, the "do you do any free shipping offers" question has reared its head.
    The answer is in most cases... nope. Sorry.
    We think its worth a post explaining... so we don't have to keep saying it

    "So Brickwerks... how come you don't when SuperCamperBrickClassicDubberWerks.com do?"

    Well... we sell a lot of parts. Some of it small. Some of it massive.
    With very few exceptions, its all in stock here.
    You'll usually find that the prices are competitive, and the reason for this is that we don't sneak a few pence on the top to cover any "free" offers or promotions.
    Like for like, we do okay on prices. We don't have the advantage of some sellers of dealing with 97 different models... we stick to what we know.
    We could do it, and offer "free shipping over £xxx" however, we think its a little unfair because if you're ordering less than the free shipping threshold, you're basically paying more for your shipping... you're paying postage and paying the extra bit we've added to the products. Its simply not how we work.
    Sure it might encourage some to spend more to get the "free shipping", but for every one that did there would be another who could see through the flannel...
    It's not fair on our customers to do it, and to be honest we credit you lot with more intelligence!
    We don't sucker you on prices. Our margins are small, and we're honest about what we sell... it really is as simple as it gets.
    If we can sell at a sensible price, stay in business, and keep adding to our ever growing range of quality parts and still be honest and upfront about what we do... we can all sleep at night and everybody is happy.

    We think that our system works, and feedback from our customers seems to say the same. No guff. No flannel. No pretence. Just straightforward honesty.
    99.99% of orders ship same or next day depending on the time of day you order it. All our shipping options are "Express" in that they're a 24hr service to the UK.
    UPS is still around £10 for Next Day delivery to most of the UK up to 32kg, and prices come direct from UPS and the Royal Mail, so you pay exactly what it costs... everything up front and honest. Its how we do business.

    We also still give forum discount to over 3000 customers from Club 80-90 and the Brick-yard... which in many cases outweighs any postage costs. So, if you're not already a member, join up get involved in the forums and sign up for discount (details in the respective forums).

  • Brickwerks Open day 24th April

    image

    We've not done this for a couple of years but we've decided to tidy up and open the workshop doors on a weekend again and let you all have a nosey about to see what we're up to.
    Same format as previous years, we'll be there about 9am and stick the kettle on, you bring a mug and we'll fill it with tea or coffee.
    Over the next few days we'll sort a discount code so you can pre-order some quality stock so there's no disappointments on the day and we're not running around like idiots wasting time making invoices out!
    We'll sort some food out of some sort or other too.
    We usually wind up around lunch time and the syncro fraternity meander their way up the valley to make a day of it and do some of the local green lanes.
    For the 2WD crowd we could always cruise up the valley in a different direction to the Oil Can Cafe and check out some classic cars.
    there have been some changes down at Bridge Works and we now have a lot more room in the car park so there should be plenty of space.
    See you there!

  • T3 Flap Lock Kit

    Rare and sought after T3 option, the Flap lock wasn't fitted to many models, and those that have them tend to want to keep hold of them!
    We don't do things by halves, so the kit comes with the lock cover and base, and also the catch for the flap itself.
    Theres even a couple of rivets and screws... and the option to set the lock to your ignition key if you desire!

    We also have replacement lock covers and the plastic base that acts as a gasket, if you already have the lock but not the extra pieces.

  • More new stuff? Surely not?

    There are so many new products finding their way onto the webshop now that we've had to increase the number shown on the homepage temporarily to show them all...
    In fact, if you're using a mobile or some tablets you wont see them at all (unless you force the browser to show the desktop site in the options!).

    A load of new badges have just gone "live", to keep the Caravelle owners happy.
    A few other surprises too :)

    For those that only ever view on mobiles, here is what you've missed this week.

    Eek!

    The scarey thing is... we really havn't touched the tip of the iceberg!

    New Products

  • T3 Front A Pillar panels from JP Group

    It seems only yesterday we sent them samples for reproduction...
    ...but on display on the JP Group stall at Techno Classica in Essen last week -  T3 A Pillar Panels
    Available at the end of this month... another piece of the T3 Jigsaw slots into place!

  • "Club Joker" stripes - professional fitment.

    DSC_6263s

    The club joker stripes are one of out more popular reproduction sticker sets.
    And the full colour printed ones are possibly one of the best stickers that VW ever fitted to the T3 :)

    Michael fancied a little 80s styling on his Bluestar, and we wanted the opportunity to make a video to give some tips. So, we had a one of set done with a blue highlight instead of the original red.
    Generally with things like this, less is more... but this works really well!

    You can see the installation video on Youtube HERE

    And of course the stripe kits are available HERE (standard colour set only I'm afraid. Special colours would be possible... but expensive!)

     

     

  • On the First Day of Christmas, Brickwerks sent to me....

    ...Nothing.
    No Partridge in a Pear Tree will be shipped.
    No Lords, leaping or otherwise will be sent to anyone.
    No Gold Rings, or French Hens.
    And not just because we don't sell any of that guff. We're closed from midday on Christmas Eve, and we won't return to work until the 11th Day of Christmas - the 4th January.

    xmas2015

    We'll be shipping orders right until we close, but obviously the closer to Christmas it gets the less likely you'll be to get a Next Day delivery :)
    Anything shipped on Thursday should be delivered between the Christmas and New Year period.

    We'll be back in on the 4th January... no doubt a few pounds heavier, and a little "lethargic" but we'll ship all orders placed over the festive season on that first day back and then usual service will be resumed until we do it all again next year!

    All that remains is to say thanks to all our customers, old and new for your support.
    Its been a fantastic year!
    Enjoy the holidays, whatever you're doing, and we'll hopefully see you all again next year for more of the same...

  • Mezzanine or move out?

    image

    Hmm. This should be interesting. We're honestly not sure where we are going to put all this! Awaiting quotes back for a mezzanine floor to free up some room! The stores are full, we have no more space left meaning that were having to store stock in the workshop!
