Wow. Google Maps now lists them as permanently closed. There are several recent reviews stating the reviewers ordered products months ago and have basically been ghosted. No product, no contact, no refund.

This is surprising for this company, previously I hadn't heard much if anything negative about them.

This sounds like a case for a possible class action, but who knows how likely anyone will be to actually get their money back. Charge backs through the bank or credit card companies might work. Good luck.

That’s because some moron on the fb group made an edit to google. Jumping the gun if you will.

Everyone needs to take a deep breath (unless you have money involved). Has anyone tried reaching out to Mark?
That's just it, nobody knows what's going on. Until Mark comes out with the story, we can't assume anything.

I'm not supporting them at all and I never have. When I bought my Frontier in 2011, Shrock had a terrible business model; long lead times, lack of communication, etc. I refused to buy from them because of this. However, people still supported them "because they made a quality product." I'm hoping this is not just a case of them shutting down business and running away with everyone's money, but we shall see.

Do a search for "Shrockworks LLC" on Google and look at the LLC records. The company status is listed as "Forfeited Existence" With a dissolution date of 19 October 2018. That doesn't look good.

I saw a comment on a facebook post after doing a search for "Shrockworks" the comment said that when that person had been able to actually get someone on the phone back in december, they were told one of the staff members died and they were trying to work things out. Okay, in my opinion, that is understandable, and most customers would understand that, and be willing to work with them... However, when you just stop answering calls and emails, and abruptly shut down your website with no explanation, that does not bode well.

I really hope that any of you with outstanding orders can either get what you paid for, or get your money back.

I agree. I would have had the same reservations as far as lead times about doing business with them. I did like their products though, and from things I've read here and elswhere, they were making quality bumpers and such. They had some nice looking stuff.

Kinda reminds me of the stories about Calmini.

just gonna say it.....any company that just ghosts their customers for months at a time, then simply posts to their website that they have gone out of business, can suck it. These types of companies have become all too familiar with taking their customer's money and leaving ridiculously long lead times, but when things come to an end they just leave their loyal customers in the dark and vanish. F' them...if they don't refund every unfulfilled order 100%, PLUS INTEREST, can enjoy their failure.
I'm with you on that- terrible way to treat both your customers and your loyal and hardworking employees.

That said, it is a sturdy bumper. I have one I am willing to sell now though because I just wrecked my xterra :( Bumper is intact.

Has anyone considered maybe they merged with PRG?
Oh god... PRG communications combined with Shrockworks lead time. That becomes a 5-year gamble on parts ordered

Their Instagram is wiped now. Beyond shady.
That is very interesting. I messaged them on Instagram earlier this morning asking what was going on. Now they have not only deleted all posts, but also deleted their account on Instagram!

I agree, this is looking very shady.

Also of note, their Facebook page was also deleted at some point recently.

I have recently as well as all their other listed emails with no reply. Called their numbers early December too and it went straight to a full voicemail box.
Yes I have reached out to Mark multiple times from October through January. I received no response to my emails and all phone calls went unanswered. I contacted my credit card company and disputed the charge because of non delivery and no response. If you have money on the table with them I would start the process.

Well shit I guess I'm never seeing my sliders or money.
If you put the charges on your credit card I would call your card services and dispute the charge. Tell them it is a custom item and you were quoted x-amount of time for lead time and that you have not heard anything from them after attempting to call and email. Don't tell them you heard the company went belly up.

That sucks. I was hoping they'd get some aluminum options to keep up with the jones'.
Since I could drive over and pick stuff up, it was lots cheaper than shipping large heavy plates.

I think someone should create a ongoing list of places to support and places to avoid based on your experience. That way, before you order or pay for anything, you could quickly scan the list(s) and decide if the shop you are thinking about fir parts or service deserve your patronage and hard earned money. I wish I knew how to create 2 new categories on the main page for this purpose.
The trick is, they were one of the GOOD ones. Everyone knew they were a 6month wait, and well worth it. They delivered, unlike some of the others that have claimed "in stock" and still not shipped for a year (or ever).
At this point, ish happens and business is business. You hear it ALL the time that employees show up one day and doors are locked.
Company bankruptcy and closure is USUALLY sudden. Now, if they KNEW they were planning to close and still took on work, that's different.

BTW ya'll. To protect yourself... don't let credit card orders get outside of your protection period.
Have the shop do a refund and re-charge.

Did exactly that once I read the news. My dispute is currently in progress and I've submitted email evidence supporting my case and Shrocks lack of contact. My only potential issue is my card is with Wells Fargo and typically their max dispute time limit is 120 days and I'm beyond that. However a higher level rep was willing to help me get this resolved and push it through so fingers crossed.

Considering White Knuckle sliders now and maybe a Hefty Aluminum bumper in the future.
