Discounted Delivery Terms

We offer competitive delivery rates on almost all of our items (some exclusions apply). The minimum delivery charge is $5 for small items under $100.

If the order contains large items or a mix of large and small items, then our discounted freight charges apply. Discounted freight is based on the subtotal of all large items (ie. appliances, vanities, baths, etc) taking effect for subtotals of $1000 and over. For each heavy item in the cart, freight is calculated by adding up the item’s freight cost to your specified delivery zone, then depending on the large item subtotal; a discount is applied. The discount starts at 10% off the full calculated freight cost at a subtotal of $1000 and increases by 2% for every $100 up to the upper threshold of $3000 where the discount ends at 50%. For large item subtotals over $3000, the discount is 50%.

When you enter your delivery address in the checkout, the final freight charge is calculated by applying a rounding method to the discounted value and subtracting that from the full freight cost which is what will be shown in the checkout as the final delivery cost. The checkout will show the full freight cost and the discounted freight that is charged to your order.

Small items do not contribute to the discounted delivery calculations. We frequently send small items out separately so their freight is added to the large item freight for the final freight cost.

Please note that some items do not qualify for discounted delivery. Christchurch / South Island only items do not qualify for discounted delivery to the North Island.

Please note that the delivery estimates on the product details pages may differ from the final delivery charge in the checkout as the freight is calculated to your delivery address and discounts are applied.
