NZ FLAT RATE SHIPPING INTRODUCED...

Need delivery to deepest darkest wops wops?
Then SELECT ALL NZ Any Size parcel $25., and we'll get it to you.
(If we can do it cheaper , we'll refund the difference.)
Otherwise, read on...
AUTOMATED CHECKOUT... Please DON'T use this facility as it will frequently select an inappropriate shipping option, leading to emailed queries and additional payments having to be made, before your parcel is shipped! Check options carefully and select the appropriate one. If unsure drop us a line.
At this time we primarily ship to New Zealand based addresses, and such shipping will be 'at cost', with NZ Post / CourierPost.
This service is with NZ Post, and allows a parcel up to 5kg, with a targeted service time of approx. 2-4 days for North Island, for $9.20,... and 3-5 days for South Island, for $14.40. Rural Zones adds $4.30 to these prices. Typical parcel sizes that ship at this rate are roughly A4 in plan view dimension, with a height of approx 15cm. ... to put that into perspective a 40K Baneblade box is roughly that size.
COURIERPOST OVERNIGHT COURIER:
We can also offer an OVERNIGHT COURIER service via Courier Post, for North Island Non Rural Addresses. This service level is broken down into 4 zones, determined by distance from us in an ever widening circle radius:
Zone 1 Local: Kapiti Coast : Paraparaumu to Otaki (overnight 1 business day)
Zone 2 Local Towns : The Lower North Island: Wellington, The Hutt and on up to Bulls / Feilding / Palmerston North (overnight 1 business day).
Zone 3 One Sector: Wanganui / Marton / Hunterville / Dannevirke (overnight 1 business day)
Zone 4 Two Sectors: The Upper North Island; Northland down to Waverley / Mangaweka / Waipukurau (overnight 1 business day)
See Map below:
The cut off for this service is 4.15pm, order placed after this time will ship out the following day.
Also please note this is a TARGETED SERVICE by NZ Post / Courier Post, not a Guarantee.
There is also the option for Saturday Courier delivery to non-rural address, which costs an additional $5.05.
Additionally... Cheaper overnight courier options for those in zone 3, 4 and the South Island!:
There are also cheap rates for parcels that do not exceed 7cm thick... there are 2 size options: A5 plan view for $7.10, and A4 plan view for $8.70... these are both Targeted Overnight Delivery for the whole country! (non-rural). For perspective the A5 size is a 40k marine tactical squad box, and the A4 size is a typical 40k or AoS small size start collecting set / Combat patrol.
or at Economy rate, if speed is not an issue for you then the above can also go cheaper at economy rate for $5.10 or $6.70 respectively.
Note some of the above A4 size boxes are too thick for the THIN shipping rates. If you're unsure, ask.
We also offer trackbags from NZ POST; the two smallest sizes (DLE and A5) we can do both for $4.50. These can also have Rural upgrade for additional $4.30.
Trackbags are suitable for small items like pots of paint, glue, paintbrushes, packs of cards or dice, and small blister packs of minis.
STILL UNSURE? As said above drop us a line if you're not sure what shipping option to use.
When we process orders, if we come to one that is under paid shipping, it will get re-invoiced and emailed back out to the customer, to collect the due amount, but this also bumps the order to the 'end of the line', and it wont get reviewed again for some time, causing delays in us getting your order out to you.
You are far better off leaning on the safe side and over paying the shipping amount if you are unsure. Where this occurs when we come to process the order, if you've over paid, we refund the overpayment immediately and get your order processed and on its way to you. So if in doubt over pay!
We will also ship Internationally, and again this would be at cost via NZ Post. Would International customers please contact us direct at Kapitihobbies@gmail.com with their order details, and we will assemble the order with a shipping quote.
Alternatively we have introduced a "Nominal Fee" for international customers of NZ$50. This will allow you check out via website. If we can ship the parcel cheaper we will refund the difference. If the shipping is going to work out more expensive, we'll contact you and invoice the extra due. If you then do not wish to continue, let us know and we'll cancel and refund the order.
