How to Order Your Nerd Rods Frame

   If you’re here then you are getting ready to order. Sweet. See the break downs below for how ordering works for each stage.

Stage 1 Kit Frames

     Stage 1 frames are normally in stock but if not they are available to pre order on a first come first served bases. Stage 1 frames are paid in full at the time of order. Crating is $85.00 if you need us to ship your frame but we are also available during business hours if you’d like to pick your frame up in person. Shipping will be calculated and billed to you the day we ship it. Sorry but shipping quotes are only good for 24 hours so we don’t know exactly what it will be until it ready to go onto the truck.

     Understand this before you order. We will not walk you through the build on the phone and the only instructions you get are the videos and photos provided on the website and 3 hours of tech support after you start your build via phone, email or text message.

     You will need to know your own skill and resources. If in doubt call us, tell us what you’ve done and what equipment you have and we’ll let you know if we think you’re ready for it. You might want to have a more experienced friend or shop help out or you might be a skilled bad ass builder and in that case this frame will be a fun cake walk for you.

     Finally, Email us with the details about the build (Body, Year, Engine, Transmission, Suspension year, Diff choice, And your end goal for the build i.e. race car, auto cross, nice driver, pro touring, ect) and we’ll send you a quote with the details about your project. Make sure this quote is good and we’ll send you an invoice. Payment is accepted CC via PayPal, Bank wire, Cashier’s Check or personal check (shipments will be held until personal check clears the banks 7 day hold)

Stage 2 Welded Frames

     Stage 2 welded frames are like the stage 1 except broken into 2 stages. A ½ deposit for the frame plus any options will be paid to lock the project down. Finally when the frame is ready for delivery the remainder will be paid in secure funds and the frame released for delivery. Unfortunately, we don’t ship stage 2 frames. The crating is far too complex, and we’ve had incidents with almost everyone shipped. Local pickup or private carrier will need to be arranged to get your Stage 2 frame from our shop to your location.

Stage 3, Stage 4, and Beyond

     Stage 3 rolling chassis are billed just like stage 2’s with the addition of a written contract to make sure we’re all on the same page when the project is completed. Stage 3 frames are shipped via rolling carrier. You will need to supply wheels and tires or we can source “beater wheels and tire” for your chassis shipping.


     All payments must be made in secured funds unless the project will remain in the shops possession for at least ten business days or until such payment is cleared by the shop's bank. Secured payments are cash in person, cashier’s check, bank wire transfers or United States Postal Service money order. Unsecured payments are defined as personal checks, business checks or money orders not issued by the United States Postal Service. The shop will accept credit card payments at an additional 3.2% charge for processing on orders over $5,000.00 USD. Credit card payments will be processed through PayPal’s online system and the customer must have a valid email to complete these transactions. Credit Card information will not be accepted by the shop except through this system.

Liability and Insurance

   The customer is legally bound hereby, and does hereby release from liability and to indemnify and hold harmless Nerd Rods, and any of its employees or agents representing or related to Nerd Rods. The customer releases the shop from any and all liability for personal injuries (including death) and property losses or damage occasioned by, or in connection with any product, activity or accommodations of Nerd Rods.

   While the project is stored on the shop’s premises the project is covered by the shop's insurance via Grundy Worldwide Insurance, 400 Horsham Road, PO Box 1957, Suite 150, Horsham, PA 19044. Insurance will be placed for the value of the parts and the current total of the labor and updated monthly. Once the customer or a representative of the customer receives the project and signs a release the project is no longer covered by the shop's insurance.

Abandoned Projects and Unpaid Invoices

   Any products left the shop or unpaid for more than 90 days will become the property of the shop unless otherwise provided in writing to the customer by Nerd Rods. Time starts from the time an invoice was received by the customer via email, PayPal, or registered mail.
