Bristol Scientific places orders on a fixed deadline schedule. It takes on average 4-6 weeks from the deadline date following your order placement to receive the goods. Give us a call or send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to ask when is our next order deadline.
In order to keep our prices as low as possible Bristol Scientific consolidates all its customers’ orders into bulk shipments. This allows us to keep shipping and clearing costs at an acceptable level for all. If however you have an urgent need Bristol Scientific offers its customers an Express Shipment option. For an additional fee, your goods will be shipped on their own and you will receive them, subject to our partner’s stock availability, within 2 weeks of placing your order.
Not all goods can be shipped Express. Most of the time this is because the goods are hazardous and have special handling or shipping requirements. Ask a member of the sales team if your products are eligible for Express Shipment.
You may find Availabilty TBD in the comments section of your quotation. TBD stands for “To Be Determined.” This means that our partner currently does not have this product in stock in their export warehouse and we are awaiting feedback on its availability. Once we know we will update you with an accurate availability date.
Certain chemicals require a special Export License to be exported from the European Union. Applying for such a License requires additional time. If ordered these items would be expected to arrive with the following order deadline shipment.
Certain chemicals are banned for export from the European Union due to international regulations. Unfortunately when this is the case we are unable to procure this product. An alternative item that is not banned for export may be available but most often this is not the case.
The sooner you place your order the quicker it will get to you. Stock levels at our partner’s export warehouse change on a daily basis therefore availability dates are only guaranteed at the time of quoting. Once you place your order, your items will be reserved and will be ready to come with the next order shipment. If an item requires an additional 4-6 weeks it is recommended to order this item as soon as possible so that it can be available for one of our upcoming shipments. The same applies for any item requiring special export documentation.
Every product has a unique code which can be used to find information about the product. It is your responsibility to make sure that the product quoted to you is appropriate for your requirements. If you are unsure of a product’s suitability to your application please give us a call or send us an email to email@example.com.
