Delivery Policy

As soon as your order has been recorded by one of our staff, we will work to ensure your order is processed, invoiced and dispatched promptly and efficiently. Our policy can be summarized as:

  • Goods are dispatched next business day, unless for some reason they are not available, in which case we will email you and advise what the delay may be.
  • Goods are dispatched via NZ Post within New Zealand unless a different method is requested by the customer, in which case a different price structure may apply. Delivery is charged at the current NZ Post rate for the dispatch area.
  • Any urgent requirements such as air transport can be discussed prior to purchase. If post-purchase please contact us, as some additional costs may need to be charged.
  • Where orders cannot be supplied from stock we undertake to enquire with the supplier no later than the close of business the following day. We will then advise the purchaser as to the supplier’s turnaround time and the freighting options they use.
