Stock Agreements

Availability and pricing that works for you


What is a stock agreement?

A stock agreement is a contract-binding purchase meaning the stock will be pre-ordered in advance. Once the agreement has been completed, stock will be allocated to your account, available exclusively and invoiced once dispatched. Rapid will retain your stock and have it dispatched to you on pre-set dates or whenever required during this period.
