"Available for Pre-Order" simply means that the product is not currently in stock at our store. This could mean that the product is on order with the manufacturer already (and would be shipped to you when it arrives..usually within a couple of days) or it could mean that the product will be on our next order (or future order) with the manufacturer (we place orders weekly, monthly and as needed). In some instances, it may mean that the product will be drop shipped directly to the customer from the manufacturer. Know that if you see "Available for Pre-Order" on a Product Page, it does mean that we will do our best to get the product to you ASAP. We have many vendors that supply products and not all vendors are alike when it comes to shipping. If you need specific information prior to ordering, please contact us with your question(s).
