A product that is says "backorder available"  means you can continue to purchase the item even if we have low or no stock available.

Generally a backorder product is a standard item that we regularly sell. You can order your desired amount regardless of the quantity we have in stock, or if it is currently out of stock on that day.  Simply add your quantity to the cart and checkout as normal.  If we have any issues with supplying you, we will contact you directly.

An oversized product means it is too large to send via standard courier. You will either:
