RightNow!® Program - Get any product right away!
If an item has a lead time that is too long for you, simply request our RightNow!® Program. Auto-Rain has supplier relationships established for over 50 years across the US. We will utilize our procurement network to locate your products and usually ship it out same day. An additional procurement charge will be added per product as detailed below.
Details of the RightNow!® Program:
We will use our network of suppliers and our industry contacts to find the products you need. In most cases, the products will ship out SAME DAY (until 6 pm EST).
- Because we are using alternate supply channels to expedite your order, we will pass on a portion of the increased item cost to you. Although there is an additional charge, you still save money at Auto-Rain because of our low prices. Rest assured that if anyone can find and ship the products you need right away, Auto-Rain can, and you'll still save money.
Customers are our number one priority. Our secure server software (SSL) is the industry standard and among the best software available today for secure commerce transactions. It encrypts all of your personal information including credit card number, name, and address so that it cannot be read as the information travels over the Internet.
Auto-Rain is so confident in our systems that we ASSURE 100% SAFETY in the transactions you make with us. Since federal law states your bank cannot hold you liable for more than $50 of fraudulent charges, if your bank does hold you liable for any of this $50 Auto-Rain will cover the entire liability for you. Auto-Rain will cover this liability only if the unauthorized use of your credit card resulted through no fault of your own, on purchases made at Auto-Rain while using the secure server. In the event of unauthorized use of your credit card, in order to qualify for the Auto-Rain security assurance, you must undertake any steps required by federal law and your credit card agreement, including any provision requiring you to notify your credit card provider in accordance with its reporting rules and procedures. If you have any questions regarding federal laws, contact your state's attorney general or the United States Department of the Treasury.
Although we provide order security assurance, Auto-Rain understands if some customers would prefer not to use their credit cards online. That's why our customer service representatives are available to personally handle your credit card transactions by phone at 866-Auto-Rain (866-288-6724), during regular business hours. They can also assist you in making arrangements for check or money order payments using postal mail.
To pay via check, place the order online. Then send a BANK CHECK OR MONEY ORDER for the full amount to: Auto-Rain Online Orders 110 E Pacific Ave Spokane WA 99202-1518 To make sure about the lead time on the item, please call or mail us to check your items. Also, if you send a bank check or money order, your order will be processed immediately.
