Courier Rates

Boxing OrderThanks so much for visiting this page. We are a small family team based in Palmerston North and are now delivering nationwide. I steered away from flat rate shipping because I wanted to ensure that our customers were getting the fairest deal and that we were simply covering our direct costs and nothing more. In order to achieve this we have weighed everything on our site so that each time you add an item to the cart the combined weight is calculated, this weight is then cross referenced against the postcode that you plug in a ta-da very accurate shipping cost calculated.

However, for some reason, most courier companies charge a flat rate for local rural deliveries regardless of weight and compared with the rates to send parcels elsewhere in the country that flat rate is pretty steep. SO what I have decided to do is create a special case for local rural deliveries, we will absorb some of the cost of the courier service in order to offer you a reduced rate. The reasons being that A) our local community have been so supportive of us and we want to return the favour and B) it makes perfect zero-waste sense to me in terms of travel miles and so on to incentivise plastic free shopping for locals. So instead of the flat rate of around $13 we will be offering a $9 delivery fee to rural addresses in the Horizons Regional Council catchment.

The cost of couriers from us to rural south island addresses gets pretty pricey pretty quickly so we encourage you to get in touch for a shipping rate and we will see what we can do. Alternatively you could check out Honest Wholefoods Co. who are another independently owned zero-waste food provider based in Wanaka.
