We endeavour to pick and despatch all orders that day.  In some exceptional cases this might take two business days.

Refunds will be processed within two business days under these circumstances.

Goods are usually despatched by signature required courier.  Usually Toll IPEC or Courierpost.  This is at our discretion.  Goods cannot be consigned to a PO. Box.  Larger deliveries are sent by trucking company.  In some cases with larger deliveries we are unable to deliver to rural or Rd addresses.

Our couriers will normally deliver within two working days (North Island) and 3-4 working days (South Island).  Rural deliveries or deliveries to offshore island such as Great Barrier, Waiheke, Stewart Island etc. may take another 1-2 working days.

If you have not received goods in this time please contact us

In the very rare event that goods are lost by the courier company please contact us as soon as you are aware that this is the case.  In these cases we will replace the goods or if not possible process a refund for the goods.  Freight will only be refunded in exceptional circumstances.

We accept credit card payment (Visa or Mastercard ONLY ) via PayPal only. We accept payment from within our website via the well-known and secure PayPal processing engine.

Our policy is to despatch goods by the end of the next business day from us receiving approval of your credit card transaction. 

We do not have access to your credit card number which is stored securely by PayPal and the banks.

EFT-POS - not available

Sorry but we DO NOT offer EFT-POS facilities as we are not a "bricks and mortar" store but an importer with an industrial warehouse. Our warehouse is not able to accept payment in any form so hence no EFT-POS.

Bank Deposit

You can make payment directly to our bank account in a number of ways.

  • by transferring funds from your bank to our via the Internet.
  • by physically depositing into our bank account at a branch of the BNZ.

Our online checkout process will provide our bank details at the completion of the sale.  You are given the various payment options at that point and if you select bank Deposit you will be provided with our account details at that point.

Cheque

We can accept cheques but will release goods only when the cheques have cleared.  This can take up to 5 business days.  Again this is an option provided upon completion of the sale and if selected you will be given the postal details of where to send your cheque.

LAYBY AND HIRE PURCHASE

We are not able to offer either Lay-By or Hire Purchase sorry.

  • you provide all assistance neccessary for us to recover our costs from the insurance or freight company. This may involved taking photographs, storing the goods for viewing by an insurance assessor, completing sworn affidavits or assisting in any other way that might be reasonably expected to finalise an insurance claim on your behalf.

Transit damage, like warranty is on a   "Return to base" basis and it is your cost and responsibility to return the goods to us by signature required courier.
