What Is a Backorder?

A backorder is an order for a good or service that cannot be filled at the current time due to a lack of available supply. The item may not be held in the company’s available inventory but could still be in production, or the company may need to still order more of the product from the manufacturer.

How Long Will My Order Be Processed Before Shipment?

Orders are packed and posted from 8 am- 3 pm, Monday to Friday. Provided your products are in stock & we are not experiencing unusually high order volumes, the package will be sent same-day shipping except for weekends and public holidays.

However, if you purchased an item that is on ‘BACKORDER’ your parcel will be held until that item has arrived in stock. BACKORDERS usually take between 14 – 30 days (depending on the demand).

Norfolk Tools works directly with the manufacturer. This sales method allows us to keep our prices as low as possible, however, we are subject to the manufacturer’s shipment schedules. This means the stock may run out while awaiting the next delivery, please allow some time for items to be restocked.
