Conservation Resources ships “FOB origin” and employees a variety of shipping methods, based on both the cost and the safest transport of the material. Be sure to provide a physical (street) address with your order. Most orders will ship via either UPS or Federal Express ground. For small orders, such as books, we can often ship using the US Mail.

For small orders to Alaska, Hawaii, and international destinations (including Canada) we do try to use the mail when possible as the rates are sometimes better. Any customs fees will be billed to the recipient. Large orders, in either volume or weight, must often ship via motor freight carrier.

We are happy to ship via expedited methods as well and if this is requested we will do our best to ship immediately. We do not add any fees to “rush” your order. Please let us know if your shipping address has any restrictions, such as a requirement for inside delivery or the need for a lift-gate truck if you don’t have a loading dock and the order is too large to ship UPS or FedEx.

We will be glad to try to give you a shipping estimate when you place your order, just ask! Be aware that certain chemicals will have to ship as hazardous materials, which means the carrier has an additional charge which will be added to the base rate. This fee is roughly $40.00, so it is significant. HazMats generally can not ship by air, which means you should allow sufficient time for ground transportation.

Additionally, during the colder months we may have trouble shipping some chemicals and adhesives which are sensitive to freezing conditions found in trucks or freight terminals. We try to ship these on warmer days and time the shipping days so that they will not be subject to weekends languishing in unheated terminals going nowhere. Consider not only your winter conditions, but ours outside of Washington, D.C. when you plan your orders for products which may be sensitive to freezing weather.
