The UK has very low thresholds for import duties and VAT for online shopping products purchased outside of the EU. Please note that any order over the value of £15 will incur VAT and duty when passing through UK customs. These are strictly not charges from Classic New Zealand or because you’re purchasing a Classic New Zealand product but charges relating to all imports outside the EU. Classic New Zealand has no control over these charges and these are the responsibility of the buyer. As the seller we don’t want any of our products incurring further charges at customs, but this is out of our control. If purchasing from the UK, please be aware that these charges may apply, and they are the responsibility of the customer. We are looking at alternative options for direct clearance.

Delivery within New Zealand and Australia (excluding Western Australia) is normally 1-5 working days. Delivery anywhere else in the world including west coast of Australia is within 5-15 working days. We require a physical address for NZ addresses. A large amount of our reviews are customers impressed with our shipping speed. Shipping and order fulfilment times will vary more through the Christmas and New Year period. All shipments are sent via a tracked service. Your tracking number will be sent through either automatically (excluding NZ orders) via email or directly through the website which you will be notified about. NZ orders tracking numbers can be supplied on request, most shipments arrive in 1-2 days. Please check junk/spam email inboxes if you don’t receive it. We use NZ post for all international shipments. Using NZ post means that the parcel is passed off to other companies once the shipment arrives in the destination country. This means you can track your item on more than one tracking link. For these main destinations please use these links once your parcel arrives in the destination country.
