Shipping & Return

Shipping & Returns

After you ordered your product at GMS Instruments, our service doesn’t stop there. With numerous packages leaving our warehouse daily we see quite some delivery addresses pass by. We try to handle every shipment with the best possible service. This means we always will try with the buyer to reach an agreement on how to deliver as soon as possible. No matter if the shipping address is in Rotterdam or Rio de Janeiro, Dubai or Singapore. Shipments within the Rotterdam port area will be delivered by our own delivery service. Addresses outside this area will be handled by 3rd party shipment companies. This will always be in consolidation with the purchaser.
