Delivery Info

Delivery Options

All orders that originate from the Netherlands are shipped by Post,NL or DHL. We regularly take orders from all over the world, and we strongly suggest that shoppers from the USA and Australia pay very close attention to our guidelines below – we reserve the right to amend this at any time.

If you are spending more than €200, we recommend one of our ‘DHL EXPRESS’ options – this is guaranteed and insured which will get your goods safely to you as quickly as possible. If anything is damaged or broken before it gets to you, this service provides financial compensation.

When your order is received and paid for before 12:00pm (GMT+1), we can pack it and dispatch it on a ‘same day’ basis. If you miss this cut-off point, then we cannot guarantee that your order will be despatched the same day, but we will do our best. We have been known to leave for our shipping run 30-60 minutes later, so there is no harm in getting in touch. No orders are shipped on Saturday or Sunday or on bank holidays.

General Shipping Information

Shipping Deadlines - To guarantee your order is shipped the same day you must place the order before 12:00 (CET) -  You may still get your order shipped up 13:00 (CET) as this is the daily cut-off time for all services, but it is not a guarantee.

Delivery Timescales - As per official information from Post.NL and UPS, most services should arrive within 1 working day to most countries in the E.U. This timeframe is subject to change over Christmas, Easter and peak shopping periods, and we take no responsibility for delays that are caused by extreme weather conditions. Ultimately, the only way to guarantee a speedy delivery is to choose a ‘Guaranteed next day delivery’ service.

Tracking details – If a tracking number is available, this will usually be provided to you automatically via email by the shipping service we have used to ship your order.

Re-shipping of lost orders – At least one single re-ship of orders is available, provided that you have chosen a tracked or insured option. We make no exceptions to this rule, and so it is vital that you choose this method of shipping if you want full peace of mind. If you choose an uninsured method that we will not re-ship the order. It's that simple. We will re-ship your order after 14 working days for EU detsinations and after 28 working days for all other detsinations. The exception to this is when the tracking information shows the package in a 'customs' type status. In that case we will not re-ship your order. If a package is returned to us i.e. if it did not reach its intended destination, we may be in a position to issue a refund (minus any shipping costs that have been incurred) See ‘Returns’ page for more info.

Customs and labelling information – It is ultimately your own responsibility to do any applicable research to find out whether or not your intended chemicals will successfully pass through customs in your country – quite simply you need to have a clear idea of your nation’s designation about what is acceptable and unacceptable. A chemical’s ‘legal’ status does not always mean that it will be allowed by customs to enter your country, and this is why you must find out this vital information before ordering. We make this information clear in this section of our website because if there are any issues with customs and the package is seized, we do not offer a re-ship or a refund – once again there are no exceptions to this rule.

If you have any questions or special requests relating to shipping your order, please submit a ticket via our helpdesk and one of our agents will reply to you as soon as they can - it’s always worth asking us if there is anything in particular you have in mind.
