Shipping & Returns

Policy: Shipping & Returns

Date Updated: March 20, 2024

Domestic Shipping

Shipping from M2 Sci is calculated based on size and weight of each order. At checkout, simply add your delivery address and a shipping cost will be displayed. M2 Sci ships UPS ground, FOB origin, for all orders unless special requests are made. For orders that require LTL deliveries, M2 Sci LLC will use the best method available. Orders typically ship within 1 - 3 business days. However, some orders shipped direct from our manufacturer's may take longer depending on the manufacturer's policy or current lead time.

Due to size and dimensional weight of larger products, those items may require shipment via freight. Additional costs may be required to fulfill the order. An account manager will contact you if additional fees are necessary to cover the cost of freight.

You will be notified by email once your order has shipped. You may check the status of your order along with your tracking number from your account by logging in at

In the event of a delay due to any cause beyond Seller’s reasonable control, Seller reserves the right to terminate the order or to reschedule the shipment within a reasonable period of time, and Buyer will not be entitled to refuse delivery or otherwise be relieved of any obligations as the result of such delay. Products as to which delivery is delayed due to any cause within Buyer’s control may be placed in storage by Seller at Buyer’s risk and expense and for Buyer’s account. Orders placed by Buyer with Seller may not be canceled after shipment except upon Seller’s written consent, and subject to Buyer’s acceptance of Seller’s cancellation and/or restocking charges that shall protect Seller against costs and expenses associated with such cancellation. Seller reserves the right to cancel any sale hereunder without liability to Buyer (except for refund of monies already paid) if the manufacture or sale of the subject Products is or becomes technically or economically impractical or if the manufacturer ceases to manufacture the Product for any other reason.
