We provide an e-mail confirmation with a tracking number so you can check the progress of your shipment. We can arrange to use the shipping company of your choice although additional fees may apply.
Actual cost is based on size, weight, package value (we insure for the full amount of the order), and your distance from Logan, UT (84321). The e-store automatically adds shipping charges to orders. Orders placed by fax will be confirmed with shipping costs.
What credit cards do you accept? When I place an order, when will my card be charged?
We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express. Credit cards are charged the day of shipment.
What are your payment terms?
Typically customers choose to pay with a credit card. We will need to have three on-time payments before we can accept purchase order terms for all companies excluding domestic universities. Payment terms on Purchase Orders are Net 30. If you have any questions about your account's terms please contact us at or call us at 435.792.4700.

How is my personal information used by Apogee?
Apogee Instruments, Inc., has a commitment to your privacy. Please see our Privacy Policy, which has information about our privacy practices for our website.
Do I need to order a sensor to go with my Apogee meter?
No. All Apogee meters (MO, MP, MQ and MU series) either have sensors built into the meter or attached via two meters of cable.

If you order a sensor only (SI, SO, SP, SQ, SU series) you will need to have your own data logger (or, depending on the sensor, a voltmeter) to collect information from the sensor.
