Shipping Policy

We make a habit of processing orders within 24 to 48 hours and shipping by Priority Mail.  We prefer Priority Mail on domestic orders and will not use other carriers such as UPS or Federal Express so please do not request their use.  We have shipped for decades and have sent parcels to almost every part of the world.  We know what we are doing.  We are meticulous packers and seldom have specimens arrive damaged or not at all.  International shipments sent uninsured are done so at the recipients risk.  Other arrangements can be made for large international orders such as Electronic Wire Transfers if needed.  Uninsured, First Class mail is the least expensive and  the method most often used for international parcels. Both international and domestic shipping done by Priority Mail have proven extremely reliable.

When you receive your specimens we want you to be happy. If you are not satisfied you may return the specimens, no questions asked,  within 10 days for a full refund of their cost. We refund the cost of the specimens, NOT the shipping.  Specimens need to be in the same condition as sent.
