Shipping Policy

Freight charges can be estimated in your cart, except under certain conditions. You must enter your zip code or be logged in, to see your options for expediting delivery and the cost for each method. See our full Terms and Conditions.

In the event that we cannot provide shipping charges during checkout (example: items that are oversized, drop-shipped from the manufacturer, or shipping outside the US.), final shipping charges will be added at the time the order ships. 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 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.
