Manufacturer Stock

Items on the website may show the manufacturer has the item in stock at their own warehouses and/or distribution centers. If any of these items are ordered and there is not inventory available at a French Gerleman warehouse, the item will be backordered, shipped to the appropriate French Gerleman warehouse, and then delivered to you in a timely manner. These items fall outside our normal delivery times due to the nature of backorders and when a manufacturer ships the item to us. Please contact your French Gerleman representative to get an estimated delivery date for an item that the website shows as In Stock at the manufacturer or to have an item drop shipped from the manufacturer.
