Orders placed online after 4 p.m. Monday through Friday are received the next business day. Once we receive them, we send an email to the address you provided. There are three possible reasons you haven't received it yet:

  • What is a backorder?

A backorder is when you place an order for a part that is out of stock. Orders that are placed for items that are out of stock are automatically considered backorders, because we have in most cases already placed an order with our supplier.

We try not to have backorders meaning that we try to place orders to replenish our stock before we run out completely. It is not always possible to do this, though, especially during the spring and summer months, and during the holidays.

  • The product I ordered is out of stock, but you already charged me for it. Why?

 When we take your payment for an out of stock item, it puts you on a waiting list for the next shipment. People on the waiting list will have their orders filled and shipped in the order that they were received.

  • One of the products I ordered is out-of-stock, but the others aren't. Can you send me the in-stock stuff now?

Absolutely! When we call and/or email you to let you know that an item is out-of-stock, we give you an expected date of arrival, and the option to have the rest of your order shipped immediately.

If you would like to have in-stock items shipped, please send an email to and we will have it taken care of ASAP.

  • If an item is out-of-stock, how long does it take before you have it again?

That depends on the product and the supplier. Most of the time, we receive backordered product within a two weeks of placing an order for it. For a more concrete date, please email us @

  • Can you fax or email me a copy of my invoice?

Absolutely! You can request a copy of your invoice at any time, and we will send it via fax, email or snail mail.
