Regular or Small Parcels

Most orders will be shipped using UPS or Parcel Post.

Large Parcels

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.

Truck Icon

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.

FASTRAK

These are popular items that ship 5 days or less.

Hazardous Handling Surcharge

Because of U.S. Department of Transportation and freight carrier regulations, you may be assessed a special handling surcharge for products classified as "hazardous." Carriers now charge $12.00 per carton for "hazardous" items requiring special handling. These products are indicated in the catalog underneath the product description, usually designated by a diamond symbol 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.
