Our website is currently not set up to calculate rural delivery costs, so deliveries to rural addresses will incur extra delivery costs. This needed to be paid before we send your order.

However during Covid-19, as a temp measure, we request you to your rural delivery be additional half of what your standard freight calculated by the website. e.g if your current freight comes up $14 when you go to checkout then your rural delivery will be additional $7.
To pay for that you need to search "Freight" where your search for products (on top of the page). This will give you options that suits you to add to the cart. You can increase the quantity to get close to your total. if you find it difficult then please call us.
We do offer bulk delivery options. Please contact us for your bulk requirements and one of our sales representatives will be more than happy to assist.

We endeavor to have all orders placed during working days dispatched within 2-7 working days. After hours, weekends, or orders for rural areas may take up to 3-9 working days. Saturday deliveries can be arranged by contacting us via email or phone.
Punctuality of Service:
Please note that although we endeavor to provide fast and efficient service we are unable to guarantee the punctuality of service provided by our delivery agents, particularly during spells of difficult weather conditions, or for other reasons beyond our control. If your shipment is delivered unacceptably late after having been collected from us on time by our agent then we may try to secure a refund where appropriate or possible.
We take pride in packing your orders to ensure that it arrives in perfect condition. Unfortunately, there are times when parcel incur damage while in transit. If a parcel shows clear signs of damage or leakage at the time of delivery we request that you refuse the parcel. Just tell the courier to returns the goods back to the sender. In that case, we will re-send the same order within 24hrs of confirmation from the courier about the damage.
Authority to Leave:
Unfortunately, because all our parcels contain alcohol, we cannot give the couriers 'Authority to Leave'. We have asked that the courier company leaves a 'Card to Call' if no one is home - this leaves the customer free to rearrange a redelivery or choose to pick up their parcel from the nearest NZ Courier depot.

There may be occasional out of stock issues from our suppliers due to various reasons out of ours or our supplier's control. In such cases, we will contact you within 48 hours of placing the order except for weekends where it may take up to 48hrs. We will either refund you those items in full or substitute them with something else upon your approval.
