♦ Hazardous Handling Surcharge

These products are designated in the catalog by a ♦ 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.

Filing Claims for Damaged Merchandise

Unfortunately, there are occasions when merchandise is damaged during shipment. If delivery was via truck, Nasco Customer Service MUST be notified within 15 business days of delivery to file freight claim with the trucking company. If delivery was via FedEx® or Priority Mail, please contact Nasco Customer Service immediately. IMPORTANT! In all cases, retain original carton and packing materials.
