Q: Do you guys offer samples? / Can I buy one spring only?

A: Because buying stock springs at small quantities is already a much cheaper option than having them made custom, we do not offer free samples and do not revoke the $89 USD minimum order limit.

Q: My company is tax exempt, how do we go about the order?

A: The Spring Store is located in California, therefore, we only tax customers in California. If you’ve already placed the order online and have already been charged for tax, you may send us a copy of the resale certificate which dictates your company is not to be charged tax and we will provide you with a credit for the taxed amount.

If you haven’t yet placed the order because you are tax exempt, you may send us an official Purchase Order along with the copy of the resale certificate and give us your credit card information over the phone to complete the order. Another option is to send us the resale certificate and place the order over the phone with shipping address and credit card ready.

Q: How do I select 2nd day shipping or next day air?

A: Our website only allows for ground or three day shipping. If you’d like for a quicker shipping method, you may place the order over the phone. Our orders ship the next day from the day when you place the order. Therefore, if you place an order today, it might be shipping out the next day depending on the time of day. Make sure to ask when you place the order over the phone.

Q: What are the lead times of custom springs?

A: The manufacturing lead times on our custom springs vary between 2 to 4 weeks depending on how much work has come in.

Q: Can I get my custom springs faster than the lead time I was given.

A: Yes, we have expedites which will allow us to manufacture your springs faster. It can be either 2 weeks or 1 week depending on how busy our lead times are at that given moment.

Q: Do you have springs for a certain firearm or car model? (Any specific object in general)
