What's New

  • New Sales Tax Laws - Effective Oct 1, 2018, I've started tracking online and phone sales by state. Under the new tax laws, the Nexus threshold in most states is either $100k/$200k in annual sales or 200 annual transactions (per state). Unfortunately, in Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and Washington, this threshold is a mere $10,000 in annual sales. I've shut off sales of big ticket items (eg, phase converters) to customers in these 3 states and will be forced to cap year-to-date sales at $10,000 (per state-OK, PA & WA) to avoid the requirement to collect, file and remit sales tax. Ultimate Garage sales and shipments to customers in other states (except here in NJ) should continue to be free of sales tax although it's likely your state will ask that you file and remit "use tax" on your purchases.

  • Flat Rate Shipping Exception (2018) - orders in excess of 10 lbs (actual or dimensional weight) that will not fit in any USPS Flat rate box, shipping to customers in USPS zones 5-9 (see chart) , are subject to additional shipping costs. Orders in excess of 30 lbs, regardless or location, will be charged actual freight. I can also use your Fedex account number if you'd like to charge the freight to your business.

  • Facom/USAG Price Sheet (Oct 19, 2018) - shows 2018 Suggested Retail pricing, Sale price, country of origin and quantity in stock . Ultimate Garage stocks more Facom & USAG products (4,800+ items) than anyone else in North America.

  • BMW Parts for Sale (Aug 15, 2018) - I've removed individual listings of most parts from my site. Please use the Excel file link to see current stock and pricing. I have added "LOT Pricing" for resellers and others who want the deepest discount available (large images are supplied with each LOT listing). Inventory has been marked down to cost/disposal value. If you have any questions or would like photos of individual items on the list, please contact me via email. Purchases will have to be invoiced and processed manually to apply the discounted pricing and proper shipping costs.

  • Facom "Classic" - section on the site with pre-2005 (made in France) tools that have been discontinued by Facom. For collectors and others with older sets with missing or broken tools.

  • Warehouse Parts/Tools/Storage Auction - too much to list separately. If you see any items of interest in the large photos, drop me an email. Willing to accept reasonable offers before listing on Ebay. BMW classic parts (1967-1999), woodworking and automotive tools, shelving, Movit Big Brake kits, wheel spacers, audio equipment, electrical supplies and fixtures, lighting, hardware and fasteners, collectibles, etc.

  • Home for Sale - The Point at Lake Norman - I had planned to relocate to Mooresville (NC) by 2016. Its strong ties to motorsport and lower cost of living made it a great environment for my business and an attractive place to retire.

    This is a "turnkey" 4 bedroom home on 1.5 acres, located in a gated community within the The Point in Mooresville NC (just north of Charlotte) . It's fully furnished without the cost premium for the staging. I've given it the "Ultimate Garage" treatment with upgrades and attention to detail. Click on the photo above for details of the home. Property is 1.5 acres (room to expand) with super low property taxes of $3,600/yr. Sale priced at $925,000 ($200k below our cost). Please contact me at 201-262-0412 or ultgar@verizon.net if you have any questions.

  • Facom Tool News & Commentary - catalog links, warranty info, product reviews, new & discontinued products, etc.

  • Phone Orders - if you're uncomfortable ordering online or not quite sure what you need, you can reach me from 9-5pm (EST), Monday-Friday, or 9am-noon (EST) on Saturday.... 201-262-0412

  • International Orders - by phone or email only. Payment via Paypal or wire transfer. Most orders will be shipped via Fedex economy air with deep discount rates, online tracking and no Fedex brokerage fees (you'll still need to pay local customs & taxes).

The above product lines were discontinued due to low profit margins, customer service and warranty issues, or the fact that I no longer have the time or interest to properly support these company's products. I still have inventory from many of the above companies, most items at close-out pricing.

I'm redirecting my time, energy and capital to a handful of product lines. I'd rather be excellent with 5-6 lines than mediocre with 30 !
