Orders placed before 4:00pm weekdays should be received within 1-3 business days in metro areas.

DHL requires a signature on delivery^, so if you will not be home during standard delivery hours (9am to 5pm) we recommend shipping to your work address. Please ensure you add the company or business name to your address to avoid any issues when shipping to a work address.

Some heavy/bulky items will be charged at a higher shipping rate. Bulky/Heavy orders can sometimes take 3-5 additional days for delivery, so please factor this into any orders for large items.

DHL cannot deliver to all areas, so in some cases deliveries will be on-forwarded to NZ Post for delivery. For tracking information please contact your local DHL office.

International Customs Charges

As most orders are shipped from our Australian warehouse, imports over $175.00 will generally incur customs and import taxes in New Zealand. This also includes separate orders arriving into NZ customs the same day. SurfStitch has no control over these taxes and cannot advise what they will be once your parcel has arrived in New Zealand.

All charges are to be paid by the customer on delivery of order. Orders cannot be returned to sender and SurfStitch will never pay these customs charges on your behalf. If you refuse to pay these charges your parcel may be abandoned, and SurfStitch will not be held responsible for any loss of funds as a result of this occurrence.

^If you are not present to sign for your order the driver will leave a card to arrange a more appropriate time for the delivery. In most cases the driver will attempt to deliver the parcel on 3 separate occasions, but if no delivery can be made after this time the order is normally returned. SurfStitch takes no responsibility for this process and any returned orders will incur a $9.99 service fee to be shipped again.
