Large Orders

Home Theater Express is happy to work with our customers to fill large orders.
However, due to the large demand for certain items, in-stock quantities, and/or manufacturer delays large orders of one product may take 2 weeks or more to process. What is a large order? 5 or more requests for one product is classified as a large order, however, an estimate can be requested for any size order.

Please plan ahead and request a large order at a minimum of 2 weeks in advance.
If items are in stock they will be shipped or set aside (at the time of payment). If the items are not in stock, an order to the manufacturer can be placed and an estimate for shipping can be given to you once we have all your (shipping/address/quantity requested) information.

If you would like to approve a large order estimate and continue with your order you may call us directly at (800) 774-0893. Please have an estimate available for reference and let the representative know you are approving a current estimate.
