Dead snails?

Just recently purchased snails from reefs2go and can't tell if any of them are alive. None of them have moved all day. Any ways to tell if they made it ok?

If you can, pick them up by the shell and smell them. If they smell really bad, they're probably dead. I wouldn't throw them out just yet though, my snails didn't come out of their shells when I first got them for multiple hours.
