|Nasco's Shipping Policies|
We will ship your order the most 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 am (CT) will ship within 48 hours (excluding "non-stock" items and live materials).
Regular or Small Parcels
Most orders will be shipped using UPS or Parcel Post.
Your order will be shipped by truck if it is too heavy; if it exceeds the size limit for UPS or Parcel Post; or if regular methods of shipment would be too costly. Please call us for a freight estimate.
This icon indicates that additional shipping charges apply. Items with this designation require higher shipping charges than typical UPS rates due to size and special handling requirements by the shipping company. Call Nasco at 1.800.558.9595 for more information.
These are popular items that ship 5 days or less.
Because of U.S. Department of Transportation and UPS regulations, you may be assessed a special handling surcharge for products classified as "hazardous." UPS now charges $12.00 per carton for "hazardous" items requiring special handling. These products are designated in the catalog by a diamond symbol or D.O.T. classification next to the catalog 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.
