Delivery Information

Some products including special order items or custom products may have delayed delivery times. If your order is required for a special event, or to ensure the best possible fulfillment on your order, we recommend that you call or email us to reserve the products you require. Our Customer Service Representatives are available to discuss payment options with you and they will advise on delivery timeframes.

At our discretion, we may choose not to deliver to a Post Office box or any address which we deem to be suspicious. If goods are being shipped to a person or address that is not the same as the cardholder and credit card billing address, we may contact you for security purposes.

Orders are processed daily up until 1pm and will be despatched within 3 business days of being received, unless your order is a special order item in which case this will be discussed with you via phone or email prior to processing. New Zealand orders will take up to 5 business days to reach you by courier providing stock is available at the time of ordering. Internationally the delivery time frame is between 10 and 21 working days depending on destination. We will inform you immediately of any delays. Within New Zealand, the entire time between your payment being received and your order being delivered should take no longer than 7 days. Please note that urgent shipping or oversize items may incur additional costs, which you will be notified of prior to despatch. Please refer to our Shipping Page for further details.

Due North Foods orders are always despatched using reputable delivery companies and couriers with strict delivery policies and schedules, and customers will be advised when orders are despatched and wherever possible tracking information provided. It is very rare for things to go missing, however if you are concerned that this may have happened, simply send us an email with your order number and we will immediately follow up with the delivery company involved.

Should you feel that your goods do not arrive in good condition, don’t hesitate to let us know, we do not sell products with damaged packaging, so if your items arrive in damaged packaging we need to know about this. When signing for packages please check the small print as to what you are signing, some courier tickets have in small print “received in good order and condition”, which when signed would void any later claim for damage. In these circumstances, either ask the courier to wait while you open and inspect the goods or simply write ‘subject to inspection’. It is important that goods are opened and inspected promptly after delivery, as most courier companies have tight limitations on claims after delivery.

If your order requires your signature on delivery, you must be available to receive your order in person when it arrives. If your unavailability leads to the deliverable goods being returned to us, then all shipment costs will be payable by you. We are not responsible for loss or damage to goods that are delivered to an address which has been supplied incorrectly.
