Terms & Conditions
FREIGHT & DELIVERY POLICY
All products listed on our website have a dispatch time frame; the dispatch time frame is measured as commencing the day after a credit card order has been placed or the day after the bank deposit has been confirmed in our account, and is a business day measurement being Monday to Friday. We will endeavour to dispatch your order within the time frame specified in relation to a particular product. If we are unable to dispatch your order within the time frame specified we will contact you and advise you of the expected dispatch date. Any quotations of delivery times by us are made in good faith but are estimates and we shall not be bound by such quotation and we will not be liable for any loss, expense, or other damage caused by any delay in delivery. If multiple products are purchased with varying dispatch time frames, we reserve the right to dispatch your order in one delivery, which will be using the longest dispatch time frame.
Delivery of an Order will be deemed to be completed when we hand the Products over to the carrier, and the Products will be your responsibility from that time. We do not accept responsibility for CourierPost, PBT Couriers, New Zealand Post or any other third party delivery. Some of our delivery methods require signature so it is strongly recommended for deliveries to be made to street addresses and addresses that are occupied during the day whether it be residential or business to avoid any delays. Parcels cannot be delivered to a PO Box and all orders sent to a business address require the business details otherwise the courier companies will not deliver. If Parcels are returned to our warehouse as either no address or insufficient address details then a re-sending cost of freight will apply and must be paid by the purchaser before the item gets resent.
Free Freight promotions only apply to $6 freight costs, if your order is rural delivery or international then a $6 credit will be applied to your order to reduce your freight cost. The freight delivery charge of $6 has some exceptions. Deliveries to Chatham Island, Stewart Island, Kawau Island, Waiheke Island, Matakana Island, Great Barrier Island, d’Urville Island or any other outer island will incur additional costs. Rural Delivery is determined by the courier option required for the order and is based on our couriers companies rural zoning NOT NZ Posts zoning. If a Rural address is provided and standard delivery selected at checkout then an email will be sent requesting the rural surcharge short-fall, if not paid the order will be cancelled after 3 days.

Please do not request that we falsify invoices or suppress tariff codes or country-of-origin information.

International orders made by credit card may be requested to obtain an authorisation code from their bank for the transaction, this verifies the transaction as being genuine and limits PlasticModels of the risk of fraud by use of stolen credit cards. Please do not be offended if we ask for this information. Without confirmation of the authorisation code your order will not be dispatched from our warehouse. COVID19 has also restricted postal services to some countries, these services are continually updated as global border restriction change.
