I’m writing to let you know how much I appreciate your excellent service and friendly attitudes. The Barrington Garage has grown to the point that I’m now dealing with a broad array of suppliers, and I wish I could say that all of them are as diligent and gracious as you.

Just recently had a bad experience with one of my suppliers which reminded me, once again, that I need to take the time to thank those suppliers who make me feel like a valued customer, and you do that. Please know how much I appreciate it! "

Inventory & Delivery
Bridge for Africa warehouses its inventory in the United States, and usually can ship within 2 business days; so turnaround and delivery times are short. We receive frequent shipments from Africa, ensuring a steady source of inventory to meet customers’ needs.

When items are out of stock, we offer customers the opportunity to backorder items for later delivery upon arrival from Africa. We are able to do partial shipments or to hold an order until it can be sent in its entirety if we don’t have the specified quantities in stock at the time of order. We will make every effort to get your product to you as soon as possible.
