In our ads / product descriptions there are suggested shipping methods for most products, and in our shopping cart, there are instructions to help you use our cart and choose shipping options. Use the pulldown menu in the shopping cart to choose your shipping option. Or choose the option to "Check out without shipping added" and we will choose the option we think will work best for your order and with your permission charge the amount to your credit card.

We strive to use the most economical shipping method for you. If items purchased will not fit in the shipping package chosen, we'll choose a more suitable option (move to a USPS Large Flat rate Box after you chose the Medium for example) PLEASE understand and do not ask us to cancel your order. Keep in mind the Post office and other carriers requires that the boxes maintain their original shape. And we have to include required paperwork and proper shipping materials in addition what is ordered.

International Customers
We ship Globally
We have added many USPS International options. Choose the best method, or to "Checkout without Shipping Added" and we will figure out the best shipping option for your product(s), and let you know the charge to pay separately.

We only provide tracking if the selected shipping method allows it and the carrier provides tracking information to us. 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.

We can not mislabel or mis-categorize international shipments / packages so customers can avoid paying fees and/or duties. Any additional fees or duties due upon arrival of any item(s) purchased, are solely the responsibility of the customer.


Heavy Shipments (Pallets, multiple drums and shipments Typically over 100 pounds)

On orders of 15 gallon, 55 gallon drum orders, and multiple 50 Lb bag orders we use an LTL freight carrier. If you purchase drums, or bags and the weight is over 150 Pounds we will get a freight quote. We need to know if you have a business address, a dock, and a fork lift. We also need to 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 the original quote. You can check your own freight carrier rates in addition to compare the quote we get from ours.

E-Mails are answered daily, and as quickly as we can. Sometimes technical questions may require more time than the questions about shipping or availability.

We typically do not offer refunds on chemicals unless we shipped the wrong item.

If you have questions email us, or call us. Contact@thechemistryconnection.com is the email address. Our phone number is (888) 583-7738 . If you leave a message we will contact you as soon as possible.
