Shelter In Place

My family and I have been ordered to shelter at home until at least April 7, to help stop transmission of COVID-19 in the San Francisco area. Many of you may already be living under similar orders, or will be shortly. Travel is restricted to only the “most essential needs” – basically food and health care.

As you can imagine, this will severely impact business shipments. BMOW will still be accepting new orders during this time, but it will likely be impossible to ship anything until April 7 or later. Please be patient, and if you’re not prepared to wait at least 3-4 weeks for delivery, then please hold off until mid-April to place your order.

Stay safe everyone. Remember to wash your hands.

    Can you at least confirm if you’re received my March 1st order? I’ve sent your three mails already…

    Hmm, the most recent email I have from you is from January 1. Your March 1 order was shipped on March 3 and was in France as of March 17.

    OK, thanks for getting back to me. It should show up anytime, then. I’ll keep you posted!

    Hope you’ll get it when quarantined. Usually you’l be notified at the latest one week after the customs office has received the shipment (“was in France as of March 17”).

    Got it! Quarantine doesn’t look so bad now. Thanks and stay safe.

    Good news, hardware shipments have resumed though they’ll be slower than normal. I’ve worked out a system where the postal carrier picks up packages directly from my home. It’s slightly awkward, but much better than nothing!
