Should the item you order not be in stock we will notify you of the back-order on our morning Order Verification send. There is always an option to cancel your order for a full refund on any stock product. Some items such as Esco tubing have a notice saying non-cancellable due to long lead times. We will also notify you of an approximate back order shipping date to give you full disclosure in making this decision.
