Andertons Music Company is always very happy to assist our customers with special ordering and pre-ordering items that aren't currently in stock and will do our best to provide ETA updates to keep everyone up to date with the progress of their orders.
We have a dedicated team of people who speak regularly with all of our suppliers to keep track of the out of stock items people have ordered. Their job is to monitor these expected arrival dates and near to the time they will chase the suppliers to see if we are still on track. Sometimes these arrival dates can change and our team will contact via email any customers waiting for these items and provide an updated ETA.
The dates that we are given by our suppliers are always subject to change until the items physically arrive with us, and the ETAs we quote our customers are always for delivery to our warehouse. The information we receive is usually passed on by the supplier from the manufacturer and sometimes we aren't given specific reasons for delays. Typically, delays will be the result of logistical problems or supply and demand.
It is always in our best intentions to provide the most accurate arrival dates based on the information we have and we try to keep our customers as up-to-date as possible in regards to their order status, however Andertons Music Company does not have any influence or control over the arrival times of products.
Our support team are always on hand to assist our customers if they need any advice on alternative products.
COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to the reduced operation of many of the manufacturers and suppliers that we deal with, expected arrival times can sometimes be significantly longer than normal and arrival times can be subject to change at short notice.
