Please scheduled your pickup with as much lead time as possible (we will do our very best to accommodate emergency and short-notice requests). Email explosive@tripwireops.org or call +1-717-648-2792 to arrange pickup. Picking up your order is free-of-charge. Also, if you choose to pickup your order and you have an extensive travel distance, you’re welcome to lodge at the Tripwire facility, for FREE,(dormitory style – not the Hilton®) overnight as a cost saving measure for you agency, and a small token of our appreciation for choosing us.

Do you ship explosives order(s)?

Yes, your order can be delivered directly to you. The additional fees for shipping and handling will be added to your quote/invoice. We will combine, when possible, items for shipment/delivery to provide you with the lowest possible cost. For orders that contain 1.1B and/or 1.1D, as classified by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), explosives, your order will be delivered by our on-site transportation fleet, or you may choose to arrange pickup and delivery with a specialized carrier, which will incur significant charges. If possible, it is advised to arrange for the pickup of these items, as they cannot be shipped by air.

In addition to our on-site delivery fleet, we utilize FedEx (Ground and Freight) to transport explosive materials, which have been classified as 1.4B, 1.D, 1.4S, and binary products.
