COVID-19 Updates

Last updated: Thursday 11 November 3:30pm

We want to reassure you that our number one priority is to ensure the wellbeing and safety of our team members, our customers and communities as COVID-19 continues to develop.

Our warehouse is located in Auckland so we are operating under Alert Level 3 restrictions. Unfortunately this means we are currently experiencing some delays dispatching orders, see below for more info.

Deliveries
In accordance with Covid-19 restrictions we are able to dispatch all orders at Alert Level 3 with contactless delivery. Earliest orders will be sent out first.

Currently experiencing delays - Reduced warehouse staffing capacity under Alert Level 3 means we are currently experiencing a higher than normal backlog of orders. We apologise for the inconvenience and want to assure you that our team is working hard to get your order dispatched.

Courierpost is currently experiencing delivery delays within Auckland.

Auckland Store / Click & Collect
Our Auckland Store & Showroom is open at Alert Level 3 Step 2 for browsing, buying and order collection. Scanning in, face coverings and 2m distancing are required. Order collection times are currently normal.

Sales & Customer Service
During Level 4 our staff are all working from home and we are able to provide the same troubleshooting and product support, however parts and service agents may be delayed until we reach Level 2 or lower. Our email, messaging, live chat and phones are on as normal.

You may have concerns about your orders and delivery dates. We're here to help, and we're dedicated to making sure you get what you need.

Shopping

Can I still shop?

Yes, you can shop with us online, through live chat or via our contact centre as normal at all Covid-19 alert levels. However, at Alert Level 4 our Auckland Store is closed to customers and we can only dispatch approved items marked as Essential on our website.

If your order contains only non-essential items or has a mixture of both essential and non-essential items then your order will be sent as soon as alert levels allow. Please contact us if you wish to split your order into multiple shipments.

All orders for non-essential products placed during Alert Level 4 will be dispatched in the sequence they were ordered as soon as we move to Alert Level 3, so the earlier you order the sooner it will be dispatched when restrictions are lifted.
