We order over 20k cans every month but have a hard time keeping them in stock. We try to keep our OD & Red JerryCans overstocked.
What is Pre-Order? You are effectively ordering and paying for a product in advance of it's shipment to you, putting the pre in the pre-order.
Why Pre-Order? Pre-ordering is not required, but is a good idea if you are interested in getting your product as quickly as possible. At times, certain products will likely sell-out before they are out of production. Pre-ordering insures you will not miss out. An example of our upcoming shipment...We have 500 black cans coming in, but 200 are already sold.
