We want you to receive your mantel clock as quickly as possible and we do our very best to keep an adequate on-going supply of inventory. However, many factors affect inventory levels which may unexpectedly cause a backorder situation. Here is how Simply Mantel Clocks handles backorders:
- If a mantle clock you’ve ordered is on backorder, we’ll send you an email to let you know the estimated arrival date. You can choose to wait for the item or cancel it.
- Backorders remain active for 60 days. If the mantel clock you ordered is on backorder for greater than 60 days, your order will be cancelled. Please check back with us at a later date to reorder the item.
- Simply Mantel Clocks does NOT charge your credit card unless your mantle clock ships. If you used PayPal, your PayPal account was charged at the time you placed the order.
- Once your wall mantel clock comes back into stock, it will ship automatically.
- If you have any questions regarding our backorder policy, or an existing order, please call our toll free number or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All of the mantel clocks we offer are covered by one, two or three year warranties, which are offered by the manufacturer. Simply Mantel Clocks does not handle warranty issues.

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
How can you offer such low prices?
At SimplyMantelClocks.com, you take advantage of our direct relationship with the manufacturers of these clocks. We bring you their best products via the internet, and we ship those products directly to your door. This completely eliminates the retail store, and all those costly retail "overhead" markups are gone forever!
How "up to date" are your products?
The mantel clocks we sell are always the latest designs. We update our site with the latest products as they become available from the manufacturer. Simply Mantel Clocks strives to offer a very focused selection of the most attractive and most popular pieces. Who has time to look at 1000 different mantel clocks?
I saw the same mantel clock on another site. Is it the same?
If you've seen the exact same mantel clock on another site, it will be from the same manufacturer we use. We don't mind disclosing this because we believe our pricing is the best on the web. Why pay more for a mantel clock when you can buy the same piece cheaper at Simply Mantel Clocks?
When should I expect delivery?
Virtually all our products leave the warehouse no later than the second business day after your order; many times it's faster than that. During heavy shopping seasons, it may take up to three business days to leave the warehouse. After the product leaves the warehouse, standard UPS Ground shipping times apply, which, depending on your location and the volume being handled by UPS at the time, is from three to seven business days.
What about expedited delivery?
2nd Day Air shipping is available to all 50 States and Puerto Rico for an additional shipping charge. If placing a multiple mantel clock order, please be aware that, since each mantel clock is individually boxed, each mantel clock ordered will incur its own shipping charge. Please bear in mind that it will take one or two business days for us to ship the products from our warehouse. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about shipping options.
What if I need warranty service?
All of our suppliers hold to the strictest standards of quality control. If by chance you receive a product which is defective, please contact us immediately so we can arrange a replacement or a warranty service. If your product is damaged in shipping, the issue can quickly be resolved by notifying UPS. If you ever have questions not answered by UPS, please contact us at email@example.com.
How safe is my credit card information?
When you buy from SimplyMantelClocks.com, your credit card purchase is processed in real time through the First Bank of Beverly Hills, by secure eCommerce servers run by Yahoo.com. Then your order is encrypted with PGP before being sent to SimplyMantelClocks.com. Your card couldn't be safer!
