Q: How will you ship my order ?

Most orders will be shipped with CourierPost or Castle Parcels, some situations we will use New Zealand Post Parcel Post as it can arrive quicker to certain destinations compared to Couriers.  Orders that have been sent via CourierPost or Castle Parcels can be tracked once sent from their websites

Q: How much will shipping cost ?

Shipping is a flat freight rate of $6 per order, it doesn't matter how much you order it will always be $6

Q:  What is your return/exchange policy ?

We will always do right by the customer.  If you are not happy with the product then we will refund or exchange it as long as we receive it back in its original packaging and of course unused.  If a refund or exchange is requested it is for the product value not including the freight.

Q:  My product doesn't work what should I do ?

First thing you must do is contact at sales@plasticmodels.co.nz to explain the issue.  If it is a manufacturers problem then we will either exchange the product or refund if we no longer stock it.  It is important that you do not try to fix the problem without our consent as if it is returned to us we will be unable to claim the manufacturers warranty as it has been tampered with

Q:  Do you ship to a P O Box address ?

Not always, most of PlasticModels orders would be sent out by Castle Parcels which are unable to be delivered to a PO Box, we always recommend to send to a physical address as the service we pay for is a delivery to you rather than a pickup from a box.

Q:  What happens if my connection fails in the middle of an order ?

If you don't receive an Order Confirmation e-mail you will know that your order has not been completed, if you do require verification of this then e-mail sales@plasticmodels.co.nz
