Delivery Information & Payment Options

Delivery timeframes

We will despatch your purchase either the day of receiving the cleared payment or the next working day.

For North Island non rural deliveries you can expect to receive your purchase the working day after shipping.  This is a delivery target and not a guarantee.

For South Island non rural deliveries you can expect to receive your purchase within 48 hours (working days) of us shipping.  This is a delivery target and not a guarantee.

Rural can take several days extra.

 

Free Shipping on orders $50 + more within New Zealand (exclusions apply for South Island rural, Chathams/Barrier/Stewart Islands)

Orders under $20 are $10 for shipping and handling.

Orders between $20 and $49.99 are $6.50 for shipping and handling.

 

SOUTH ISLAND RURAL AND CHATHAM/BARRIER/STEWART ISLANDS:  Some bulky items (identified on the product page) do not ship to South Island rural addresses, or Islands as the shipping is simply too expensive and the chance of breakages is much higher.  We suggest you ship to an urban address and pickup from there or check with us which courier we will use for your order (Fastway or Courierpost) and we can ship to their depot.  If you do want delivery to your door contact us for a quote.  info at makewine dot co dot nz

 

Shipping to Australia on selected items $20 + more only NZD6.50

Orders under NZD20 are NZD10 for shipping and handling.

We ship selected items only outside of NZ.

You will need to be able to pay by paypal or into a NZ bank account.

Standard shipping is international airmail.  Delivery targets are 3-6 working days to Australia with despatch day being day 0.  Note these are targets and not guarantees.  International airmail is an untracked service.

 

No pickups or telephone calls sorry

We do not offer pickups, nor do we make or take telephone calls - and we do not make any exceptions sorry.  Please don't ask as a refusal can often offend.  For this kind of business it is a far more efficient way of operating, thus keeping costs low and prices competitive.  We understand that some people prefer to deal with others person-to-person.  If you are this kind of person our best suggestion is to visit or telephone a homebrew store.  You can google homebrew store or look in the yellow pages.

 

Address must be on NZ Post database

For NZ please provide a deliverable address on NZ Post's database.  We cannot send to addresses which are not deliverable on NZ Post's database.

 

Orders from outside Australasia

We will ship selected items anywhere in the world.

You will need to be able to pay by paypal or into a NZ bank account.

Please note, there may be additional costs (eg duty) at your country's borders, which will be your responsibility. You will also need to ensure you can legally import the items you have ordered and a condition of the sale is we will not be responsible for any loss to the goods if they are retained at customs for any reason.

 

Couriers and Post

We mostly use Courierpost and NZ Post as our freight providers.

Should you require the courier to leave your parcel somewhere, please include these delivery instructions with your order.

If you have separate postal and courier addresses please provide both as your order may be couriered or posted.

We send non-signature, but if the courier doesn't think the item will be secure, they may still leave a card to call.  If you require the parcel to be left, please include this information with your order.

For North Island non rural deliveries you can expect to receive your purchase the working day after shipping.  This is a delivery target and not a guarantee.

For South Island non rural deliveries you can expect to receive your purchase within 48 hours (working days) of us shipping.  This is a delivery target and not a guarantee.

Damaged or missing parcels

If your parcel does not arrive within the expected timeframe or arrives damaged, please let us know immediately.  If you do not let us know immediately we may not be able to replace or refund your parcel.

Occasionally orders do get damaged in transit or lost.

For damaged goods:

  • Please let us know immediately.  If you delay in letting us know it may mean we cannot make a claim against the freight provider.
  • If possible, please email us a photograph to info (at) makewine (dot) co (dot) nz
  • We will send a replacement immediately (for free) provided you have let us know within 2 working days.
  • Please retain damaged item and packaging as the freight provider may need to collect them to investigate.

For goods that have not arrived within the timeframe:

  • Please check the tracking and/or let us know immediately
  • We will lodge an enquiry with the freight provider
  • If the item has not been found by the freight provider within 2 working days, we will send a replacement for free .  The only proviso on this is that you provided us with the correct address for your order AND that you have informed us within 2 working days that your parcel has not arrived.

 

Rural Customers

Large carboys & Malolactic culture do not ship to rural addresses or Stewart/Chatham/Barrier Islands.  

Rural deliveries can take several additional days.

Rural deliveries either by post (small items that can fit in a DLE envelope or courier satchel) or courier will usually be delivered by your NZ Post rural delivery contractor.

You can provide special delivery instructions, but these may be overridden by whatever arrangements you have in place with the NZ Post rural delivery contractor.

Some bulky items do not deliver to South Island rural addresses or Stewart/Chatham/Barrier Islands - see our note towards the top of the page.

 

Recycled Packaging

We may send your item in recycled packaging in order to keep our prices down, keep within courier ticket sizes, and for the benefit of the environment.

Over the Counter at the Bank ($3 transaction fee)
