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.
All orders are eco-friendly paper wrapped for protection. If you wish to choose a bubble wrapped option for extra protection, you may find this option at checkout.
Delivery target times for each service:
|Courier Economy||1-3 working days|
|Express||Targeting same day, but not guaranteed|
|Rural delivery addresses||Additional 2-3 working days to standard target delivery|
NZ Signature Required
We no longer charge extra for Signature Required parcels and this is our preferred option to ensure your parcel reaches you safely.
Please be aware that non-signature OR signature required parcels are sent at the buyer's own risk. If you won't be available to receive the parcel, please ensure that your courier is provided with a secure location to leave it.
Unfortunately, neither Hikoco nor NZ Post can offer refunds or replacements for items that have been lost, damaged, or stolen after being delivered to your property. It's crucial to emphasise that you must contact us within 21 days to initiate a claim. After this time period, we and NZ Post will be unable to assist.
