Q. Will I have to sign for my package?

A. Yes you will. All parcels are sent signature only unless during the placement of your order you select Authority To Leave, then it will be left somewhere safe and a card placed in your letterbox.

Delivery Speed

Q. I just placed an order online, when will I receive my order?

A. For delivery we say 3 – 5 working days  from placing your order, however it is usually delivered within 2 working days in the North Island and 3 in the South but this is not guaranteed. For rural delivery add a further two days.

Gift Deliveries

Q. I would like gift wrapping and a label added. Is that possible?

A. Sorry but we no longer offer a gift wrapping service. We did for the last year but it is not cost effective and would be too expensive to pass on the true cost. So about this change in service.

Return Shipping

Q. What are the shipping charges for returning a faulty order?

A. We will collect it at our cost and send a replacement.

Q. What are the shipping charges for returning an item I just don’t like?

We are happy to take it back and provide a refund if the item is still in a perfectly saleable condition with all packaging intact. In these cases it is up to you to return this to us however we can offer a collection service which would be chargeable depending on the size of items purchased and location of collection.

Q. I want to return an item worth over $100 when I got free shipping, how does that work?

A. If you have purchased an item over the $100 freight threshold and wish to return it you can. However there was a cost for freight that we absorbed in the original price so this is a real cost to us. If you wish to return an item you can, assuming in perfect saleable condition and at your cost but you would also have to pay the original freight cost. of $7.90
