Default Nates 4x4 or Nates fab in Midland Mi.

Last Monday I ordered some XJ front bumper brackets with hardware for a bumper build I was going to do on Saturday. I talked to Nate. He said no problem I will ship them on Tuesday and you will have them on wed... They did not come in wed, thur or fri... So Friday night at 6 when I remembered that Iím screwed for my bumper build on sat I called him (afterhours) praying for him to answer and he did. He said he missed FedEx on tues so he shipped it on Friday. I told him my problem and he said "you in Birch run right? How about I just run some down to you on Saturday. I have to be down that way anyways" I said that would be great and I will just ship the other ones back when they come in. He said "donít worry about it, sorry for the incontinence".

The brackets he delivered and the matching bolt kit were of top quality, fit perfect and now I have an extra set to give to my buddy who needs them.

I have read a few bad things about him on here and I wanted anyone who takes the time to read this to know he went out of his way for a first time customer and he will see my return business because of it.
Thanks again Nate.

But if he would have shipped them when he said he would have, then he wouldn't need to deliver them?

I like it best when I order stuff, and it just comes without further need for intervention.

I agree. I dont know what made him "mis his fedex pick up on Tuesday" But he made it right and even compensated for the pain in the ass last minute drop off.

That's great, but if he missed Fedex on Tuesday, why did he still wait until Friday to ship them?

Fedex comes to his place every Tuesday and Friday for pickup. Im sure he could have ran it to a fedex drop off tues, wed or thur night but he seems to be a very busy guy. One man fab shops seem to always be busy.

Yeah, he seems to go out of his way for first time customers. I had him cut out my first set of taillight boxes and he did it right away, so I was there for only 10 minutes or so and they were cut out. Now when I take some steel there for him to cut out it takes about a week for them to be done.

Same thing for me. First time cust. with an insurance job and he was 2 days late getting it done. To make up for it he delivered it to the body shop that was doing the rest of the work. He did come in at the right price to meet what my insurance was paying. Its hot the best looking bumper, but is strong as shit! I'll buy again, just will order early.

with such a fine bumper build, why not build you own frame mounts? You already did quite a bit of fab.....? Just sayin.

Sounds like good business to me, he screwed up, it happens to us all but he made it right, would look into doing business with him except I'm up by TC

My buddy ordered a rear bumper w/ the tire carrier and he messed up (not 100% how tho). Anyway, to make up for what happened, he fixed the problem and sent my buddy a front bumper for free! His work isn't pretty, but for a Jeep it looks perfect and I've seen his work put up to the test and it is defiantly strong! I would defiantly support Nates4x4 not only because of how well he takes care of his customers, but it's supporting a Michigan business.
