It goes with great pleasure to announce the re-opening of the Official Lukas Store - Lukas Direct.

First why am I posting this?
Easy, Lukas has contracted @Calgary Dash Camera - Samuel and I to operate and support the Lukas Store.
What does this mean?

  • Firstly and most importantly, it means that Lukas Customers all over the world can access greater support. The same level of support we have provided to Calgary Dash Camera customers.
  • Warranty requests won't require overseas shipment, and lengthy processing times.
  • Secondly, localized shipment centres. Which means that orders will be processed quicker, and arrive much sooner, for cheeper.
  • The initial rollout includes a warehouse located in San Fransisco, with a second warehouse located near Detroit coming online early spring 2016. Following that a London UK warehouse coming online mid 2016.

  • And of course, the most direct access to every think Lukas!

Feel free to visit the new store at its new domain of LukasDirect.com

This is great, I was trying to find a place to buy an LK-350-VT and shop.lukasdirect.com showed up after a few pages of Google results. I couldn't tell if it was legit or not, though, until I searched DCT and found this post, not even a day old. It seems I have good timing!

One question - your prices on the items themselves are great - $29 for the LK-350 vs. $39 for the one sold by the Korean SBC on ebay. However, the shipping quote (to Pennsylvania) is over $13! By any chance, is there a way to get cheaper shipping? That's a surprising amount for a small item, not to mention that the ebay one ships for free (from Korea).

Thanks!

Thanks everyone for the kind welcome of our new venture!

So a few updates.

After a long couple of days in California & Nevada. I am happy to announce that the store is now fully live, stocked, and shipping!

Second update, we have partnered with Jon At @Pier28 to fulfil all Lukas Direct Order at this time.
More international warehouses are still in the works, but again wont be launching until Mid 2016.
Partnering with Jon on this helps save costs, create greater synergies between our two businesses, and most importantly faster, cheeper, more accurate shipping.
I am pleased to announce that we will now offer Free Shipping to the USA & Canada at all times of the year, on any order!

Ok, I have to ask, how did you come up with the name Pier 28 when there isn't a pier within 200 miles of Carson City :D

Yes we used to be in San Francisco but we just moved out to Nevada for multiple smart reasons. No more California sales/income taxes and lower cost of living big time. The affordable houses and nature are beautiful out here. We are pretty close to Lake Tahoe.

As you know it's nearly impossible to get a short domain name these days. Basically my business partner sat in front of a scrolling wall of text several years ago looking for available domain names. Pier28 popped up. (click, done) :)

Here are some random fun facts about the number 28.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/28_(number)
The number 28 is the atomic mass of silicon.
The number 8 is lucky in China
8 is also a sideways infinity symbol, so we have a Pier 2(to) 8(infinity) [ok maybe I'm overthinking it now]
Pier is possibly a slight play on words to Peer/Networking maybe. (has a good ring to it at least)

Our universal name doesn't limit us to anything, but we will always be a specialist in whatever market we get into. (do one thing, and do it well) I eat/breath/sleep dashcams until we grow and hire more people in other areas.

Anyway, as you know I was just having a bit of fun at 6am Thai time......Merry Christmas to all

I just placed an order early this morning for a Luka R935 and received a email a few minutes ago saying it's been shipped.

I paid extra for USPS Priority mail (+$12.40) yet you shipped it UPS sure post, which takes longer than 2 day IE: Priority mail?

I don't like (UPS) that's why I paid extra for USPS Priority mail....

Sorry about that, we just fixed our system so it won't happen again. SurePost is a UPS/USPS hybrid system.

I know what UPS sure post is. I personally hate anything to do with UPS, that's why I like it when vendors offer USPS or FedEx as shipping methods. :)

Thanks Pier28 for the quick follow-up. You are always quick to reply, I really appreciate it!!
