Many chemicals that Flinn Scientific sells cannot be shipped via second day air or overnight. Users will not have the option to select air shipment methods if any of these chemicals appear on an order.
Living items require either second day or next day air shipment because of the limited life span and specific care needed.
Some larger items are not available to ship via standard UPS Ground and must ship via motor truck freight. These items are noted in the product copy with a truck icon.
Shipping costs depend upon the price and weight of your items. To see your shipping costs, simply add items to your cart and then click the Proceed to Checkout button. After you select a shipping address, the next screen shows your delivery options and costs.
After you add live materials to your cart, click “Proceed to Checkout”, and then “Select Shipping Address.” On the Shipping Options page, you will see a calendar next to each of your live materials. You can choose an arrival date by selecting a specific date on the calendar, or you can check “As soon as possible.” Any other non-Live Materials items will be shown as a second shipment with regular delivery options.
