Pricing

Testing prices for samples deliver to SMCOY’s laboratory at Eurajoki, Finland using the unit prices below. Unit prices include sample preparation, testing and reporting. The test report includes sample list, results in table, photographs of samples in core box before and after preparation, photographs of each specimen before and after loading and the relevant test plots. For less than eight samples per test the unit prices are increased by 20 %.

Prices stated in webpage may change due to currency conversions (the reference price is in euros) or anytime without further notice, please ask for an offer. All prices are á (VAT 0 %) and  shipping, possible other taxes or possible customs costs are not included. The estimated shipping costs range from 10 € per sample onward. For example 15 UCS test samples shipped in FedEx Box from Toronto with International priority is around 29 € per sample. The shipping of a point load test device and shear test sample is more expensive than for other samples.
