Shipping Information
We typically ship orders Monday through Friday in the order they are received, except for major US Holidays. Typically, orders received by 1:00 PM US Central Time are shipped within 1 to 3 BUSINESS DAYS, depending on order volume. Holidays may extend typical shipping times.

We do offer an Urgent Shipping option in shipping calculator. This is like a "skip in line" feature we recently made for customers that want more urgent shipping. There are several to choose from and all use the term Urgent Shipping  If you choose URGENT SHIPPING in the shipping options of our Shopping Cart, and the order is received by us Monday through Thursday by Noon CST, we will ship the package out on the same business day using the method selected.  If not - it will ship the next Business Day using the shipping method you selected. We only ship out "Emergencies" or Expedited shipments if you Select the Urgent Shipping Option and the shipment meets those specified details.. We reserve the right to charge any extra fees for expedited shipping. Chemistry Connection dba uses several carriers for shipments - specifically FEDEX, UPS, and USPS. For heavy shipments we use several LTL Carriers like SAIA, FedEX, R & L, and others. We can also ship using your carrier with special arrangements. 

Chemistry Connection is not responsible for shipments that do not arrive on time. We can offer no claims or warranties about deliveries after we ship using the method requested other than providing tracking information.

Other important shipping details: If using an LTL Carrier for heavy shipments over 100 pounds we will need to know if you have a business address, a dock, and a fork lift. We also must know if you need additional freight services- like a Lift Gate Service, or an appointment for freight shipments. All additional services ordered after we give a freight quote, or that you order when the truck arrives are the buyer's responsibility. Additional freight charges will need to be paid. Please do not order additional freight services when the truck arrives without paying for them. We will need to collect the money after the sale and you agree to pay them if you order additional services not on our original quote.
We are happy to let customers check their own freight carrier rates and compare to our quotes.

Some international shipping options (1)Do not allow any tracking and (2) May not arrive due to customs issues, or they may arrive late. We typically have no problems with International Shipping but sometimes there are problems out of our control - for example how something moves through customs.
