We stock all the items we sell. When an item is listed as 'In Stock' then we have the item on a shelf or in a box on our premisis. We do not drop ship goods as we believe this does not give the best service or price to our customers and so it not good for us either.
'In Stock' vs 'On Order'?
Items in our catalog listed as "In Stock" means we have the stuff ready to ship.
Items in our catalog listed as "On Order" means we have run out of stock temporarily but have a shipment of new stock on order from our supplier. It usually takes up to 5 days for new stock to appear. "On Order" items can normally be added to your cart as a backorder in which case your order is filled as soon as stock arrives.
The stock levels on our web site are updated as orders are taken but sometimes we will be out of stock on an item you have ordered as we can not guarantee our stock levels are 100% accurate at all times due to factors such as bad counting or damaged stock. If one or more of the items your ordered are out of stock then we will first contact you for instructions on how or if you would like to proceed. Naturally your order would be at the front of the queue when new stock arrives.
If an item in your cart is out of stock, you will be notified that the item is on backorder before you begin the checkout process. We ship backordered items as soon as possible, typically in 5-7 working days. If you are concerned about how long it will take for a backordered item to become available, please contact us.
You have two options for how to handle the shipment of your backorders:
If you ordered the wrong thing we will accept returns of new, un-opened items in their original packaging within 30 days of the order date provided they are in saleable condition. We think it is better that you spend your money on the things you do want, hopefully with us next time.
It does take us a while to process a return order, check it and restock it so a $5 + 15% restocking fee applies and you pay the return shipping. Only the price of the goods less the restocking fee is refundable. The initial shipping charge is not refundable. Please contact us to obtain a return authorization code before making a return.
Please contact us as soon as possible if you would like to cancel or change your order. You can cancel an order free of charge if we receive your cancellation request before your order is processed and we start creating a bubble wrap and cardboard safety capsule for your goodies. Please be quick though as we try and get goods sent asap.
Please contact us if your order is missing bits.
