If you add an item to your cart, it SHOULD BE IN STOCK for immediate shipping unless you see "Backordered" next to the item (in the shopping cart) in red text. HOWEVER, we have had a number of orders manually modified recently by customers over the phone or by email and occasionally the inventory is off as a result. We alert our customers within 3 days of a new order if this occurs and there is an inventory shortage. If this occurs we will also try to offer alternatives. Since we only pre-authorize charges during checkout and do not capture funds until shipment, any needed cancellations can be easily taken care of. Until we complete yearly inventory and reconcile any differences, you may email firstname.lastname@example.org to verify stock for a quick check if you have a time sensitive build.
