We suggest that before you order from Fitness New Zealand Limited you read our Shipping & Returns information carefully.
CourierPost Track & Trace (The Fastest Way) – target delivery is next working day (not guaranteed), online track & trace, delivers to rural areas and to NZ Post PO Boxes & Private Bags (may take longer)
You will be emailed a tracking number once your order is all complete, and our shipping system will also notify you of your parcels progress as well. In most cases they are delivered the following day from your order if you order Sunday through to Thursday. Orders placed on Friday/Saturday are shipped on Monday.
We have a flat rate of $4.50 for almost all of New Zealand using Courier Post, however if you are Rural, that price increases due to the additional costs to us from the courier companies. You are welcome to ship to a non rural address to get round this one.
Free shipping over $100 does not apply to Rural, however you are welcome to send to a non rural address to get the free shipping
If you have a problem with a delivery from a Courier Post, contact the carrier directly on 0800 268 743. Explain the problem and ask them what they can do to fix it. This could include problems with goods:
- not delivered
- damaged in transit
- delivered but not signed for or left where they could be stolen or damaged.
Six tips to beat ‘porch pirates’
1: Get packages delivered to a place where someone will be home to receive them or to a work address.
2: If you do have deliveries made to your home, make sure you’re going to be home to sign for them or have a secure location where they can be left.
3: Make sure your delivery instructions are clear and ask for packages not to be placed at your front door, or on top of an apartment building post box.
4: If you’re not going to be home when the parcel is delivered, arrange to collect your parcel from the depot, or have the parcel redirected to the address of someone you trust.
5: Be smart when disposing of packaging, so passers-by can’t see if you’ve been buying expensive items.
6: Report any suspicious behaviour to the police. For example, if you see a car following a courier van or an unexpected visitor knocks on your door asking for someone you don’t know.
