"We’re experiencing delivery delays of up to 5 days and in Auckland up to 10 days We're seeing a significant increase in parcel volumes. While the majority of parcels are being delivered within 3 days, some parcel deliveries are delayed by up to 5 days. Deliveries into Auckland may be delayed by up to 10 days.

PICKUPS: We have re-enabled the option to 'PICKUP' from our Auckland office. Please do not arrive until you have received an email informing you that the order is ready for pickup. As with deliveries we are only packing and dispatching orders Tuesdays and Thursdays at present.
CONTACTLESS DELIVERY: During Level 2 all our parcels will be sent as no-signature required. In most cases couriers will knock on a door or ring a door/gate bell and then step back at least 2 meters (or as far back as safe). They will wait for someone to come to the door and greet them as usual. If no one comes to the door, the courier will follow the standard process which is to leave the item in a safe place or leave a card to call and return to depot if no safe place. Please read our couriers site for updates or more information on their safety procedures: https://www.nzpost.co.nz/COVID-19/updates/community-safety
