DELIVERY/SHIPPING to CANADA

Due to Covid-19, and its impact upon international air freight services, please allow extra days to the published delivery times below. We are unable to be specific as information changes frequently. There may also be delivery delays within Canada influenced by local conditions → CLICK HERE for updates on any delivery delays within Canada. Thank you for your patience, your understanding and your support!

We contract New Zealand Post to send your order by insured airmail, or international courier, or by International Express Courier.

  • Within Canada, the delivery agent is Canada Post except for International Express which is DHL.
  • After order despatch from Nelson, New Zealand, you will be sent automatically an email with your tracking code and a link to the New Zealand Post Track and Trace service.
  • This tracking code can also be used on the Canada Post Tracking service and should offer more information within Canada.
  • Despatch emails are also sent automatically, on our behalf, by New Zealand Post from noreply@notification.starshipit.com
  • At checkout, one or more of three shopping options will be presented to you depending upon the weight of items in your order.
    • Please remember to correctly enter your delivery address and your email address when you order, and also to check your junk mail or spam folder!
    • Please monitor your parcel's progress regularly, and especially when delivery appears imminent.
