Occasionally a backorder will happen, even with our large inventory. In situations like this, we make every effort to fill the backorder as soon as possible. If the backordered item happens to be part of a larger order that has already been shipped to you, we'll pay the handling on that backordered part. It is very important to us that you are completely satisfied with your entire order, every time. If you have any questions about your order, please contact us.
