Shipping, Billing and Delivery questions

How long will it be before I receive my order?

We try our hardest to deliver your order as promptly as possible.  North Island delivery, providing it is on the daily courier by 3pm, is overnight on any working day and South Island delivery is 2 days. In some cases we might be out of a temporarily out of a size and reordering it may add 1 or 2 days to delivery time but we will always communicate any delays with you.

Deliveries to isolated locations or RD addresses sometimes take an extra day to arrive.
Couriers do not run on public holidays.
If there are any foreseen delays our customer service team will always contact you to advise.
Deliveries times to Australia:  If you have selected the cheaper untracked option please allow approximately up to 10-13 working days to Australia and up to 21 working days for the rest of the world (but generally delivery is much quicker than this) If you have selected a tracked delivery option please allow 3-6 working day to Australia and up to 10 working days for the rest of the world.

Delivery Overseas

Delivery charges for overseas orders are calculated in the following way:

Untracked Option :

Freight to Australia is calculated by taking 15% of the items original $ value. If more than one item is purchased it’s charged off the highest priced item purchased.

eg if an item has an original value of NZ$200 the delivery cost will be: $NZ200 x 15% =NZ$30 less GST = NZ$26.08.
Freight to R.O.W is calculated by taking 20% of the items original $ value. If more than one item is purchased it’s charged off the highest priced item purchased.

eg on a $200 item the delivery cost will be: NZ$200 x 20% = NZ$40 less GST = NZ$34.78.

Tracked Option: Opt to have your order sent by a faster, tracked post couirer service.
Is calculated as above but adding $20 for Australia and $40 for R.O.W

Do you ship to PO Box and Private Bag addresses?

Yes but in some cases this may delay the expected delivery time. Please allow enough time for your order to arrive. If you are in a hurry to receive your order it is better to provide a physical street address or you can choose a pick up in the checkout from a local store location (Taupo, Mt Maunganui,  or Cambridge)

Do you ship to overseas addresses?

Yes but certain delivery conditions do apply.
Any deliveries for overseas customers are taken care of using New Zealand Post’s International Air Service. The maximum weight that can be delivered is 20kgs and the maximum length and girth measurement can be no more than 2 metres.  For delivery times please refer to above. Please note we will not ship liquids such as cleaning product or dangerous goods to overseas addresses.

Import Taxes

Customs Authorities in most Countries undertake “spot checks” on parcels crossing their borders. Upon inspection you may be required to pay import or sales tax that is applicable in your country. Any charges incurred in this way are beyond Hikoi’s control and are your responsibility. You may wish to contact your local Customs Authority for information regarding any possible charges that may be applied to your purchase.

What happens if my goods don’t turn up ?

Hikoi currently uses fastway couriers for NZ deliveries on a traceable service.  NZ delivery can take 1-2 working days (Nth Island) or 2-3 working days South Island but in some cases it may take longer especially if you live in a remote location or rural.

Please consider a reasonable amount of delivery time for your order to arrive but in the unlikely event that your purchase does not arrive or is simply lost in the post please contact us or call (+64) 7 542 4221 or free phone in New Zealand 0800 2 HIKOI (0800 244 564)so that we can either track and trace your order.

Returns questions

Can I return the product if I am not happy with it?

Of course you can. Hikoi wants all of our customers to be satisfied with their purchases which is why we offer a ’30-day no questions asked’ returns policy on all items sold via this website. The 30-day period begins from the date of purchase. Items returned within this period can either be exchanged, credited or refunded. If you are exchanging or swapping sizes etc Hikoi will send out the second item freight free (NZ delivery only) but it is on you the customer to return the item(s) at your cost in an ‘as new’ condition with all packaging, ticketing and labeling.
If re-shipping is needed to an overseas address we may charge a flat fee of NZ$20 to do this.In the unlikely event that you receive an incorrect, damaged or faulty item we can arrange to pick up your item and resend the replacement or exchange free of charge.
