Products that have been labeled as “Special Order by Phone Only” tend to be more complicated than most of our products. To make sure that you, the customer, have exactly the right information in order to make a purchase, this item requires you to talk to one of Nasco’s Order Department operators by dialing 1.800.558.9595. Just have the product number available so the order department operator can answer your questions and take your order in a timely fashion.

We will ship your order the most secure and economical way, unless you request a particular method of shipment. COD charges are additional. Please include telephone number and name of person to be contacted by the transportation company in order to attempt delivery.

Generally, orders received on a business day by 11:00 a.m. (CST) will ship within 48 hours (excluding “non-stock” items and live materials).

Regular or Small Parcels

Most orders will be shipped using FedEx® or Parcel Post.

Large Parcels

Your order will be shipped by truck if it is too heavy, if it exceeds the size limit for regular or small parcels or if regular methods of shipment would be too costly. Please call us for a freight estimate.

For more information, visit our Shipping & Delivery page.

Next Day Air and Second Day Air service are available. Rates are higher than ground service rates; however, air service may be appropriate if you are in a hurry for your order. Ask our phone order operators for details.

Because of US Department of Transportation and FedEx® regulations, you may be assessed a special handling surcharge for products classified as “hazardous.” FedEx® now charges $35.00 per carton for “hazardous.” items requiring special handling. These products are designated by a diamond symbol or D.O.T. classification next to the product number. Whenever possible, like items will be shipped in a single carton. However, shipping more than one type of hazardous material in a single carton is prohibited which may subject you to additional charges.
