Q: How do I know if The Combat Company has a product in stock?
A: We’ve got a Qty In Stock feature for every item on our website. It will show you whether the item is in stock (1-5+), special order in, advanced order or out of stock.
Please note that this feature is 99% correct – we also take orders over the phone, at events, on Facebook, on Ebay, etc. Don’t worry, though, we do update our stock figures regularly.
Q: How long will it take for you to get an order back in stock?
A: We receive stock on a regular basis. If the item you’re after is out of stock and you’d like to know as soon as it comes in, use the Notify me function. If an item is out of stock, it will have a Notify Me button instead of an Add to Cart button. Click on the Notify Me button, enter your name and email address and click Save My Details. When the item is back in stock, you will receive an email to let you know.
If you have specific questions regarding stock availability please email email@example.com.
Q: What happens if I order a product that is out of stock?
A: Our website does not allow you to order items that are out of stock, but very occasionally, we may not have an item in stock. This may be because the item has been sold in store or at an event before the system has been updated, or the item has been lost or stolen. This only happens very rarely – our systems are updated in real time. If it does happen, we’ll contact you within 1 business day of you placing your order to let you know of the options we can offer. We will let you know when the item is expected in, or we can work out something else for you.
Q: What is a Special Order Item? How long will it take to arrive?
A: A Special Order Item is something we have to order in especially for you. The ETA we indicate is our best estimate, but subject to availability and speed of process with the supplier. If you order a special order item along with regular in-stock items, the whole order will be held until the order-in items arrive. All items will be shipped together.
Q: What is a Pre Order / Advance Order item? How long will it take to arrive?
A: A Pre Order / Advance Order Item is a new product that hasn't been released by the manufacturer yet. If you order an advance order-in item along with regular in-stock items, your whole order will be held until the advance order items arrive. All items will be shipped together.
Q: Are your products New or Used?
A: Unless otherwise noted in the Product Description, all products sold by The Combat Company are brand new.

A: Yes you can! Our fantasy factory is located at Unit 4, 16 Hearne St, Mortdale, NSW.
