Shipping Policy

In the US only, orders placed by 1:30pm. Central Time (CT) today and containing all 'In Stock' items will ship from our warehouse today.

For orders with temporarily unavailable items, we will ship the items based on your selection to either ship the complete order once all items are in stock or ship items as they become available. All orders will ship via the shipping method chosen when the order was placed. See our full Terms and Conditions.

When ordering calibration services, the availability date indicates the estimated time to calibrate the instrument once we have the instrument in our facility.

Certain freight charges can be estimated in your cart during checkout, but you must enter your zip code or be logged into your account. We cannot provide estimated shipping charges during checkout under various conditions. (Examples: items that are oversized, drop-shipped from the manufacturer, or shipping outside the U.S.) Orders that include drop-shipped items (i.e., chemicals) may be charged separate shipping and handling fees.

If a shipping method is not specified, we will determine the most expedient and efficient means of shipment. Appropriate charges (such as freight and insurance), provided by the various carriers used by Cole-Parmer, will be added to your invoice. These charges are determined (at the time of shipment) by product plus packaging weight, overall package dimensions, as well as any other special shipping requirements, such as HAZMAT materials. Your final shipping costs may differ.
