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 our appointed carrier firms.
We use Castle Parcels, a division of PostHaste couriers, as our Economy Parcel Service.
The charges for which are typically $6.40 for North Island, and $9.37 for South Island, if not Rural and less than 3kg. There are further charges if Rural, of $4.32, so take care selecting the correct option for your address.
This arrangement also allows us to ship Dangerous Goods, such as aerosol spray paint cans, to you at no additional cost.
PLEASE NOTE: The Economy Parcel Carrier does NOT have access to PO Boxes, or PRIVATE BAGS they need a physical street address to make delivery. If you want delivery to a PO Box or PRIVATE BAG, please use the Courierpost overnight options.
Note - Large long items like Deepcut mats need the 3-10kg rate with Castle, due to length of parcel once packed. CourierPost option for long mats remains as normal.
COURIERPOST OVERNIGHT COURIER: (NOT for Dangerous goods : Aerosol cans!)
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)
The cut off for this service is 4.15pm, order placed after this time will ship out the following day.
There is also the option for Saturday Courier delivery to non-rural address.
There is still no additional tariff for dangerous goods deliveries, but CourierPost will NOT deliver these to Rural Addresses. If you require dangerous goods to a rural address, please select the Economy Parcel Carrier.
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 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 to us getting your order out to you.
You are far better off leaning on the safe side and over paying the shipping amount. 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. However we would NOT be able to ship hazardous good such as spray paints and varnishes. 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.
