Shipping and Postage

Your order will be delivered in 1-3 business days, depending on where you are located. While we make our best efforts, we can not guarantee overnight delivery if there are delays with NZ Post. It may also take a little longer for addresses in rural areas. Please ensure you choose a delivery address where someone will be available to sign for your parcel (Signature Required).

We will process your order as soon as possible within standard business hours. Please note that stated delivery time is estimated for within business hours, and does not include any time for processing your order. We will email you a confirmation once your order has been shipped, which will include a link to your tracking page.

When checking out please supply us with a physical address, such as a workplace, where there will be someone present to sign for your item between the delivery hours of 9am - 5pm weekdays.

We take no responsibility for charges or delays incurred at receiver's end as this can vary depending on the rules of customs in each country.

We are partnered with NZ Post to deliver all our parcels. If you have any questions about delivery, please contact NZ Post directly as they can help you best once your parcel has been dispatched from our warehouse.

All stock is located in our Auckland warehouse.

International Shipping 

HIKOCO now offers shipping services to both New Zealand and Australia. For customers in Australia, we aim to deliver your orders within 3-5 business days, although the exact timing may vary based on your specific location. Please note that deliveries to rural addresses may experience slightly longer delivery times.

Tracking Your Order
For those ordering from Australia, tracking will be facilitated through the Australian Post tracking system, not the local NZ tracking services. This ensures that you can follow your parcel's journey accurately after it leaves our warehouse.

Need Assistance?
If you have any questions or require assistance with your delivery, we recommend contacting Australian Post directly. They are best equipped to provide detailed information and support once your order is en route.
