Shipping & Returns


Shipping Information

Sciernce Supply Australia ships goods with various couriers to handle our deliveries. The freight charge is passed onto our consumers. Packaging & Handling costs in Metro areas start from $20+GST per order. Country areas start from $25+GST per order. Bulk orders incur addional fees. No extra charges apply for backorders.
As from November 2012 all orders containing dangerous goods will incur a surcharge of $20+GST per order.  Wherever possible we minimise the number and size of cartons shipped for each order. Regulations for the transport of Dangerous Goods (DG) requires that certain DG classes MUST be packed separately and shipped on different trucks. As an example, an order that contains Classes 3,5 & 6 will require a minimum of 3 cartons and may be delivered at different times due to them having to be shipped separately.
