With somewhere in excess of 5000 products in the Fermob range when you count all the possible colours, we’re unable to hold everything in stock. And whilst we do keep some stock, choosing the right colours from the 24 available in the right sizes, mean we usually order furniture as customers request it.

And Fermob also try to hold stock ready at the factory but they face the same challenges in knowing what is going to be popular at any time, so usually lead times can be around 4 to 6 weeks, plus shipping time.

Update Winter 2021/22

At the start of the Spring 2021 season, lead times were around 7 to 9 weeks, and during the summer, we experienced lead times more typically around 16 weeks.

As we go into the winter season for late 2021, Fermob lead times have come down a little, but are still being quoted as a minimum of six weeks (and we need to allow a little more time for transport, customs, etc.), with some colours and/or ranges longer still.

We can always check if we have stock or Fermob are holding stock ready made at their factory in Thoissey. In addition we can find out what the lead time is if it is not already manufactured – sometimes it can be less than the 12 – 16 week timescale.

So if you have any queries, get in touch and we’ll see what we can do to help.
