Heartfelt thanks from our customers:
back to Marine Parts Express home
Some people call them "testimonials". When a customer takes the time to say thank you in addition to making a purchase from us, we truly take note and we understand that they are indicative of a job well done. Our president wanted to call this the "atta boy" page, and so we are proud to share it as such. We deeply appreciate the unsolicited kindness our customers have shown to us. Here is a small sample of some of the letters we've received.
VERY CUSTOMER ORIENTED
Thank you so much for your help. At this time, we will wait to see if our local repair on the flange will be satisfactory.
I will be giving you a good recommendation to Practical Sailor - your company is very customer oriented!
AN OUTSTANDING JOB
I would like to thank Brodie and JD for their hard work in getting a very difficult transmission for my pearson sailboat.It is a vey small item from Italy but they came through. I would have given up long ago and told the customer to go elsewhere, but these guys are like pitbulls on a mission.I am from the midwest and would not hessiate to tell everyone I know these are the go to guys. I hope to be sailing soon and if I am ever that way would like to shake their hands for an outstanding job. Thanks guys
YOU GUYS ARE GREAT!
JUST WANTED TO SAY THAT WE REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR WONDERFUL CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! YOU GUYS ARE GREAT!!! RODGER STRICKLAND IS THE MAN! THANK YOU AGAIN!
WISH I HAD FOUND YOUR DEALERSHIP YEARS AGO
Thanks Brodie.. Much appreciated. Good talking to you too. It's good to actually talk to someone at the other end of the telephone that knows what they are talking about. I have been a Volvo Penta owner for over 20 years & have found your service & communication to be excellent. I found your website late last year while doing a search on the internet for some parts. Wish I had have found your dealership years ago. Keep up the good work..
I WANT TO THANK YOU AND JD. FOR GETTING MY ORDER OUT TO ME BY THIS LAST TUESDAY.
THIS IS WHY I ALWAYS TELL PEOPLE TO BUY BOAT ITEMS FROM YOU ALL.
YOUR SUPERVISOR SHOULD BE PROUD OF THE WAY YOU BOTH TREAT CUSTOMERS.
THANKS ONCE AGAIN.
AWESOME HELPJust wanted to say Fred ext 623 was an awesome help to me today!!!!
GREAT DOING BUSINESSS WITH YOU
Got the turbos, Brody.

OUTSTANDING CUSTOMER SERVICE
Henry: I want to personally thank you for your Outstanding Customer Service with my recent order! I am quite happy and impressed with the way you handled things!
I can assure you that I will not consider purchasing any of my Volvo Parts (I am on my 3rd) anywhere else…ever!
GOOD COMPANY AND REPRESENTATIVE
I have been working with Evan Olson for the last few days on ordering very hard to find Volvo marine diesel engine parts. I felt you should know that it is really a pleasure to deal with Evan. Has has been very helpful and informative on his handling of a number of my orders. Being in the business myself, I can appreciate a good company and representative, and with Evan , you got a gem.
THANK YOU RODGER
Rodger: Thank you for the PDFs. I order all my marine parts through you, and refer all my mariner friends to you. Always enjoy doing business with Marine Parts Express !!
HELPED ME BIG TIME
I'M NOT LOOKING FOR ANYTHING RIGHT NOW !! BUT J.D. & BRODY
HELPED ME BIG TIME WITH SELLING ME THE RIGHT PROPS!!
ARRIVED QUICKLY AND IT'S THE RIGHT ONE
Hi, I'm not looking for anything today. I just wanted to say "Thanks" for my recent shipment of a propeller I ordered from you folks. It arrived quickly, and it's the right one! You are the ones who I'll be contacting in the future. Thank you.
I really don't E-Mail Presidents of company's about how good was the service or if they send me a evaluation link or any thing like that, I just feel that it really doesn't matter, but I ordered through your company a part that was shown as $15.05 but later received a reply from Noreen telling me the part was not in stock and a new price quote due to the part being carried over to a new part # , so I replied back that was fine , she also said she hopes it will be sent out by weeks end , So on Fri 6/13 I called your company to get the status of my order and Noreen answered the phone ,she sounded winded and was still pleasant and when I told her who I was and why I was calling ... she checked the order and told me that the part was processed and should be in my home by Monday 7/16 WOW.......and I would receive a ups tracking # ..... Sir I have to tell you this, "Noreen is in my opinion is as valuable as GOLD" not only did she explain why the order price had gone up and the time to look the order status up, and I could tell she had to RUN to pickup the phone and was an absolute sweet heart over the phone . I wanted to write to you just to let you know I do purchase many items on line, and had some problems in the past with some but I must say " I will always order my Boat Parts from Marine Parts Express" Because of Noreen
Thank You. I will tell all my Boating Friends to give your Company a try for Parts
WHY I CONTINUALLY MAKE MPE MY EXCLUSIVE SOURCE FOR VOLVO PENTA PARTS
I wanted to pass along my appreciation for the outstanding support recently extended by your representative, Mike Halligan. In many transactions with MPE I have always received exceptional service from each representative I have dealt with. However, my most recent contact went above and beyond this and illustrates why I continually make MPE my exclusive source for Volvo Penta parts.
I had ordered a fuel pump for an 8.1 Volvo Penta gasoline engine on a tight schedule for a client’s pending Bahamas departure. The pump showed up in a timely fashion but was unfortunately the wrong application. I talked through the situation with Mike who confirmed that this pump could not be adapted to our application. While I waited Mike got on the phone and located the correct pump and was able to have its delivery expedited for the very next day. Arrival of the correct pump allowed my client to make his scheduled departure.
I just heard from my client who returned safely from a perfect trip with his family. He was not aware of the last minute crunch but I know that his trip would not have been possible with out the effort and resources of Mike and your company. Thank you!
Indian Harbor Beach, FL
I WILL BE ORDERING AGAIN FROM YOU
My order arrived yesterday; thank you
very much. Fred at x-104 was great in getting
these items together for me, and I appreciate
the shipping/tracking info when order was sent.
I will be ordering again from you for my
future needs. thanks again for great service.
FEW AND FAR BETWEEN
Added you to my address list. Your company had already been in my favorites list----It was very good talking to you yesterday---I sent an email out to my boating friends with your web site info, that are here in the San Francisco Bay area. Marine parts shops are few and far between. Nobody seems to keep parts on hand and might as well go to the web and get it myself.
Peta Luma, CA
EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED
Just a quick email to thank you for your service on the supply and delivery of the Cummins Aftercooler which arrived today. It's a bit of worry when purchasing offshore but I got exactly what I wanted at the right price. Well done.
Cleveland, QLD, Austalia
VERY, VERY HAPPY CUSTOMERS

FIX THEM QUICKLY AND PROPERLY
Hi J D,
Many thanks for your email.
I have a favourite saying i have been tell my staff for 20 + years. It goes like this:
Every business has its own problems / hicups / mistakes but the big thing is " to fix them quickly and properly " and it actually enhances your reputation/image.
This you done more than perfectly.
I appreciate your assistance and have no hesitation in recomending your business.
Gold Coast - Australia.
Thanks for everything. Will use you again and recommend as widely as I can. Brilliant job. (quote me on your website if you fancy).

Santa Ana, CA
GREAT SERVICE EVAN
So I'm sitting here less than 24 hrs after we spoke holding my new prop shaft housing and bearing. The part showed up 1/2 hr ago from Fed Ex.
YOU MADE MY DAY
Thanks for finding the tube assembly for me - that is huge. Is there anything I need to do because of the changes?
Thanks and have a great day - you've made mine!
COMPLIMENTS TO MIKE
Just a quick note to again thank you for your help in solving a number of problems this year. The pump worked out perfectly and was a direct fit. It is always nice talking to you but for some reason it cost me money. So I look forward to our regular maintenance calls in the Fall and following Spring.
P.S. Please pass my words of praise to your boss.
Thanks JD, you guys are great. I appreciate the help.
A VERY GOOD EXPERIENCE
Thank you JD,
It has been a very good experience and will recommend your company
You are a winner. Thank you very much for the great service. If you move to Australia, you will make a fortune. The only thing we lack in the best country in the world, is good customer service! Where are you in the USA? Got some great mates Up State New York, and love the place over there. Bit on the cold side for me, but beautiful people and scenery! Thanks heaps again.

CUSTOMER FOR LIFE
Just received the fed-ex shipment. THANK YOU VERY MUCH for over-nighting it to me. I truly appreciate it! you have me as a customer for life. Even though I missed the July 4th weekend, partly because I waited till a week before to order :-).
thank you again for rushing it to me,
Excellent customer service Fred thanks so much! I was really impressed with the fast shipping. I was in a fluke tournament on the 19th that I thought I was going to have to withdraw from but was able to make the repair and participate in. Nice Job!!
IT'S ALL TRUE!
I appreciate the honesty and the help! I've seen the positive feedback on your business and it's refreshing to see that it's all true! Again, thanks for the help, and the credit... I'll be back!
Still cannot believe it, but between JD and Alice after a two week search from down here in Bayou country in Lafayette,La.we have been saved.These "angels" not only had the parts we needed but shipped them FREE to my front door! Yes we have a rather large problem in the Gulf right now but know if we need ANYTHING you guys are there for us! Don't know how we are gonna one-up this one for ya'll but all the crawfish you can eat are on us. Thanks again and keep us in your prayers.
YOU TREATED ME LIKE I WAS THE ONLY CUSTOMER
Fred, I got the part and it's installed on the boat. I am ready to launch for this weekend. I can't thank you enough for the excellent customer service you provided me on this. I know you guys are swamped but you treated me like I was the only customer. I truly appreciate service like this and will continue to recommend your company. Thanks again, I am the happiest guy right now!
ALWAYS A PLEASURE
(To Noreen) WONDERFUL! Thanks. It's always a pleasure doing business with your company.
Many thanks Brodie for your help with the gearbox. Just a quick line to let you know everything went according to plan, And the unit was fitted and tested last weekend. Once again thanking you for your professional approach & speed of delivery. Will keep your company details in mind for future reference, and will also recommend yourselves if any opportunity should arise with fellow boating pals.
SERVICE WAS EXCEPTIONAL
I ordered and received several parts over the last few months from you. The transactions were wonderful. Everything was received in good condition...I dealt with Brody primarily and I have to say the service was exceptional. Thank you very much and if I need further parts I will definitely contact you.
YOU ARE THE BEST
Thanks Brodie. You guys are the best. That's why I do not order from anyone else.
YOU MADE THE DIFFERENCE
I would like to thank you very much for your help. I send the same inquiry out to other Companies but they haven' responded. You took good care of your Customer and should be rewarded for it. You and Marine Parts Express. Other Companies (Wholesalemarine , etc) have the same part for less but you made the difference.
I JUST WANTED TO SAY THANK YOU
The goods are on their way, and I just wanted to say thank you for being so fair, and so straight.. You now have a customer for his natural boating life!
Good news on the waterfront is always well received and news of a fair supplier spreads fast.
YOU SAVED OUR HOLIDAY WEEKEND
Your customer service is extraordinary. Fred saved the day by identifying the right part and arranging for overnight shipping to the marina. The part arrived at 8:30am and we were repaired quickly. Thank you very much for saving our holiday weekend!
Harper's Ferry, WV
YOU ARE VERY HARD WORKING
Good Morning Noreen,
There are six hours difference between yours and my place. How do you call people that goes early to work, early bird ???. You sure are a very hard working individual, I know it, because you are always in touch, if I knew your boss I will tell him how pleased I am with your work.
La Victoria, Spain
THE GREATEST SITE AROUND
Just a note to say that I think this is the greatest site around. Your customer service rep was right on with his assumption of my problem(s), and the parts arrived promptly as promised. The schematics section of your web site was a God send (everyone else wants to sell you a book) and that is why you will have my business from now on, and anyone else I can convince to try you!!!
I recieved my order yesterday in Australia. Very impressed with the speed of posting to Australia with USPS and Australia Post.
YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME
(To Brodie) I can tell you one thing, as long as I own a boat, I will never order parts anywhere other than here!! I placed the order late yesterday and it was here at 9 am! You guys are awesome, thanks for your fast and knowledgable service.
COULD NOT HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT YOUR COMPANY
Thanks for the update Noreen, your company has done a great job in getting these old parts for me over my last 4 or 5 orders. I'm restoring an 87 chris craft LTD and could not have done it without your company.
Wesley Chapel, FL
Thanks for all the info!! Anytime for the encouragement!! It's not always easy dealing with customers, I know. That is why I always appreciate great service!
Cape Coral, FL
Just received my order, what fantastic service! All correct and within a week of ordering, will certainly recommend.
GOING OUT OF YOUR WAY
Thank You for going out of your way to find the used parts for my engine. The parts were as new condition.
You and your company have an excellent customer service ! It was pleasant doing business with you. Will keep getting my parts from you. Thanks in advance !
We placed this order for a very difficult to find part. Our local dealer said the part was not available and Volvo North America did not have them.
We ordered the part through Marine Parts Express on Saturday. On Monday AM I was told By MPE that the part may be hard to locate for the same reasons.
Around noon I called and spoke to J.D., he was able to locate the part and shipped it FedEx to the marina where we sat waiting. Less than 24 hours later it is installed on our engine. I want to commend Marine Parts Express for its service and JD for his helpfulness, professionalism and ability to get the job done.
We will certainly recommend MarinePartsExpress.com to our boating friends.
Merritt Island, FL
JD/Brodie: Further to my recent order and follow up panic telephone conversation to JD (4th January 09) questioning the exhaust manifold supplied. Just to let you know I have now returned to Tanzania with the part and finished re-building the engine and all the parts were correct as you quite rightly advised. Many many thanks for Marine Parts Express' fabulous customer service once again....
The part I ordered from you recently has just arrived SO thankyou for prompt attention.
ABOVE AND BEYOND
Your efforts are really above and beyond what I would expect from a lesser parts suppllier. You treat me like a client you want to keep.
Falls Church, VA
I APPRECIATE THE SERVICE
I know a lot of times you never hear back from the folks you try hardest to please - your customers. I wanted to say thanks for shipping the missing parts quickly. I appreciate the service I have received.
Middletown Springs, VT
GREAT SERVICE, GREAT BOOK
JD -- Thanks for the great service on my parts orders. I read the book about the Whale Ship Essex in two days, could not put it down. Thanks for the tip and the great service!!
Just wanted to let ya'll know that I am extremely pleased with the new prop I got from you a couple of weeks ago. I am also very pleased with the sage advice I received from your salesman. Hopefully I won't need any more parts anytime soon, but when I do, rest assured that you will be the first place I call.
Thanks for the Steller Service! Got the starter on Saturday. Worked perfectly.
Marshfield Hills, MA
LOVE THE WEB SITE
Thank you for all your help. Love the Web site!!! Very easy to order needed parts. I will continue to use and recommend this site to others.

Ponce, Puerto Rico
YOU ARE A GENTLEMAN
Thank you for your help again. I must say you are a gentleman. Here in Australia we are getting screwed with everything. Be assured I have already, and I will do in the future, recommend your company, to all my aquaintances and assosiates in the Yachtclub.
Based in La Rochelle, France, we are currently going around the world on our catamaran. Just a note to thank you for great service and a friendly and helpful staff.
La Rochelle, France
THANK YOU TO YOU AND YOUR STAFF
J.D. I just wanted to thank you and your team for the excellent service I received yesterday! I had an electrical engineer on my boat late in the afternoon identifying some issues and at 4:45 I was on the phone with one of your staff. With just a few minutes to go before the Volvo facility closed in Georgia, he was able to get the shipment overnighted to me last night so I could have them installed this morning. Everything is working well now and I can make an important trip that was planned this weekend. I just wanted to take a minute to acknowledge the excellent service and say Thank You to you and your staff.
VERY HAPPY I FOUND YOU
Bob: Thanks a lot for yor help, yesterday I bought with you some things, 2 sender and 2 impellers Volvo Penta. I am very happy I found you and your excellent service. Colombia has a lot of owners of engines Volvo Penta, I am sending to my friends your page.
THIS IS BOATING
Thanks JD. Its been a pleasure doing business with your company. I have recommended you to many of my boating friends and will continue to purchase parts in the future. Hopefully, I won't need many, but this is boating.

I wanted to say how great I think you and your team are. As I continue to work on the boat, it is nice to know that whatever part I need, you guys are there to help. Your service and support are great. If you ever need a customer testimonial let me know.
A CUSTOMER FOR LIFE

A customer for life,
I have got the propeller and it is tested and work perfekt. Thanks for a good service.
MY WEEKEND WAS SAVED
I just wanted to say thank you. I contacted over 15 retailers (both near and far) last week looking for a replacement belt for our Baja 275 (496 MAG engine). No one could help me as the part was on factory backorder from Mercury. Everyone was telling me the supply had been depleted and they wouldn't start shipping from Mercury until March 12th. I called you and even though some of the computer systems were down you still found me a belt and had it to my home in Bonita Springs Friday afternoon. My weekend was saved as Saturday was gorgeous and we are a boating family. I got that belt on in the morning and we spent the day out and about. All of this was great and even better was your price. I paid the same price that it would have cost me to drive to a local retailer (if they had the part) and that included expedited shipping to FL (I ordered on a Wednesday and it was here Friday before noon). I just wanted to say thanks. You run a great business and I will be sure to use you again in the near future and recommend you to friends both in the local boating community and online! Thank you,
Bonita Beach, FL
FIRST CLASS SERVICE
Many thanks for your speedy response, in airport and travelling now, so will order in couple days, first class service.
De mi consideración:
Me dirijo a Uds. a fin de agradecerles el grafico que me enviaron sobre la estación de mando del motor "Volvo" tamd 74 PA-EDC, ya que me fue de mucha utilidad y pude dejarlo funcionando correctamente.
Just wanted to thank you for the excellent service on my last order. I had you ship it to an address of a friend in Tucson & then couriered into Mexico by another friend. It arrived here in three days & everything was right. Sometimes things work out like that, even here in Mexico, but not without the help of good people like you. Thank you again.
RARE IN THIS DAY AND AGE
Many thanks for all your help with the marine parts that I purchased from you. They all fit perfectically - I was sceptical of purchasing these parts on line, but your professionalism and expertise proved that you and your company are a pleasure to deal with. It was a pleasure to put the parts in with all the parts fitting exactly the way they should - It is rare in this day and age to have things work so well and your help made this possible. Thanks again
YOU REALLY HAVE YOUR ACT TOGETHER
Thank YOU.. You got a new steady customer.. I bought an EX NYPD police boat at auction. 1989 Steiger Craft with a Volvo Penta DuoProp AQ271C. I have yanked the engine, rebuilt it, removed the whole outdrive, replaced the steering helmet etc, and am just getting it in the water.. Dealing with you has been much better than working face to face with the three previous parts suppliers I have found here in Delaware and MD area.. You really have your act together.. Thanks for the knowledgable, accurate, quick, efficient, and friendly service..
I am extremely impressed and appreciative of the effort you made to send me the correct part prior to the start of my cruise. I will certainly recommend your company to my boating friends.
YOU'VE GOT MY FUTURE BUSINESS
Hi Matt. Thanks a million for all your help! I'll call the order in today. The Zincs in the outdrive were all recently replaced so I don't need them right now. Really appreciate your help and you've got my future business.
My order arrived this morning. Thanks so much for the fast, professional service.
HOW TO BE SO GOOD...
Thank you so much. I was hoping to have the new parts in hand before the weekend. Please extend my thanks to JD, as well. I am very impressed with your company’s Customer Service. Perhaps, there is a market for you to teach others how to be so good.
HOW IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE
I just wanted you to know how pleased I found ordering parts from Marine Parts Express. I was able to find the parts for my Borg Warner Velvet Drive transmission, order them on-line and install them without any problems. That is how it is supposed to be. Great job by your company and people.
AUSTRALIA LOVES MARINE PARTS EXPRESS
GOOD news your shipment (SW Pump, gaskets etc) arrived at the house this morning. Great service & delivery - six days from order placement to parts arrival!! .... Maine must be coming into the worst part of winter about now - here on the Sunshine Coast (100 Km north of Brisbane) we are coming out of the southern summer and enduring temps around 90F - perhaps shouldn't have mentioned that tho!! Again many thanks for the excellent service!
WOW, first a big thanks for the speed of the order and well you said expect the order to arrive in 7-8 days. It came in 5 days. As I had said when I placed the order ,I had ordered these same parts on the 27th of Dec.'05 from another company's web site in Ohio and after 14 calls in 28 days asking for the parts I had paid for and never received I finally cancelled with my credit card company and found your site. THANKS, THANKS and I will return !!!
LIKE A KITTEN...
THANK YOU FOR THE PARTS FOR MY BOAT. CRANKED UP AND PURRRED JUST FINE!
AMAZING CUSTOMER SERVICE
Thank you so much for the amazing customer service, availability on
my parts and promptness on your delivery.
IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO FRED AND HIS MANAGER!!!!
Thank you for all your help it was very professional and friendly.
Thank you again,
ON THE WATER AS SCHEDULED
Thanks again for your extra work in getting those parts to me on time. They arrived Friday @ 1 pm and were installed late that night. We were on the water as scheduled, but only because of your extra efforts on my belalf.
LOCAL DEALER DROPPED THE BALL
Just a short "thank you" for a job well done. Our local dealer dropped the ball on the prop and lower unit seals (he cost us a week's time) and you had them in our hands the day after we called, with plenty of time to get them all installed before dark! Thanks a lot for your prompt service and courteous treatment.
You folks are awesome! I really enjoy doing business with you.
And one very special letter came to Bob after much hard work on his part:
To all our customers we say thank you for the compliments and hope you will continue to let us serve you with quality parts and service in the future.
