Options for backorders

Backorder allowed
We'll despatch in-stock items immediately and place any out-of-stock items on backorder. Items on backorder will be despatched as they become available. Therefore, your order may arrive in single or multiple deliveries.

Deliver order complete
If any items in your order are out of stock, we can hold your entire order until all items become available. Your order will then arrive in one delivery.
