Shipping and Handling

Insurance
All shipments are 100% covered against loss or damage.

Damaged shipments
Buyer is responsible for the claim processing. In the event a shipment is delivered with missing parts, and/or damaged, contact the carrier immediately. Northern Scientific can not make any adjustment; the buyer must submit the damage claim form with the carrier. Many carriers request you save the product packaging. Damaged and short shipments must be reported within five days of receipt.

International Orders
At this time Northern Scientific reserves the right not accept orders outside the continental U.S.A. and Canada.
