You will be able to see whether we have an item in stock above the ‘Add to Basket’ functionality on the product detail page. If there is no free stock immediately available to deliver, you will then see ‘Available on backorder’ instead. In this case, you are given the opportunity to place an order at the currently prevailing price and get the next available item allocated to your order.
If a backorder is available, the estimated delivery date will also be given on the product page. Given the difficulties many of our suppliers have faced in getting containers shipped, we have taken the decision to only offer a backorder if we have been given a clear arrival date.
The delivery date given on the product detail page is an estimate based on the expected arrival date plus a normal timeframe for getting your order delivered to you. Delivery estimates can change but, when we know that furniture is already being shipped, we can be fairly confident the change will be minimal.
Please note that many popular products are rarely in free stock and will generally only be available to purchase on backorder.
