Failure to do so might result in your garment not arriving in time and you will not receive a refund for this. Rural delivery orders need to be placed at least 4 business days prior otherwise we will not refund you if your order arrives late. If you order after 3pm on a Thursday you must select Saturday delivery. Please call NZ Post (0800 COURIER) to confirm that Saturday delivery services are available in your area. Tracking details will be provided to you once we have sent the garment. Please note, if the order has been placed after 5pm on a Wednesday for the coming Friday or Saturday you will not be refunded if the order does not arrive on time and you are placing the order at your own risk. If the tracking number says the garment has been delivered but you can not find it you must contact us within 4 hours. Otherwise we will assume it has successfully been delivered and you will be liable to pay the full RRP if you claim you can not find it. If delivery has been attempted but not successful, and redelivery does not arrive at your desired time, we do not refund you for this as it is your responsibility to be accessible for the courier to successfully deliver the arrival of your garment.
