Tower Hobbies Stock Status and Production Exception Designations
Stock status and production exception updates are made to our web site on a regularly scheduled basis. Below are the possible descriptors that you may find on our web site and their meaning.
Product is in one or both of our warehouses and is available for shipping (usually ships in 1-2 days).
Product is in one or both of our warehouses and is available for shipping (usually ships in 1-2 days), but our on-hand quantity is low.
Place your order immediately to ensure delivery.
The expected arrival is when we should receive stock from the manufacturer. It is a guideline provided
by the manufacturer and is subject to change. We sometimes do not receive enough stock to cover all back orders
that exist at the time of product arrival, causing the displayed expected arrival to change to the next expected
arrival from the manufacturer. Therefore, rather than waiting to order the product when displayed as "In Stock" we
urge that you place your back order immediately to ensure delivery.
Product has been ordered from the manufacturer, but the manufacturer has not yet provided a date in which we should receive stock. We can
accept back orders on these items.
Product is in the process of being ordered from the manufacturer. We can accept back orders on these items.
Product is seasonal in nature. It is normally stocked leading up to and during its most highly-demanded part of the year. Place your back order immediately to ensure delivery.
Back Order Only
Product is not normally stocked in our warehouses. If you back order the item we will
order it from the manufacturer with the intent of fulfilling your order. Please note that the time it
takes to fill your order could exceed 30 days or more depending on inventory available at the factory
and/or production schedules.
Product manufacturing and/or distribution has been suspended by the manufacturer until further notice, or some other problem prevents us
from taking orders for the item. No delivery date has been given to us by the manufacturer. Please revisit our web site periodically to check for possible status updates to these items.
Product has been discontinued either by the manufacturer or by us and the product is no longer available from Tower Hobbies. We are unable to take orders for these items.
This descriptor will appear above the stock status for each case in which a product is produced on a limited-run production basis by the manufacturer. Place your order or back order immediately to ensure delivery.
