What is the cost of shipping?

Shipping is FREE on orders over $399. For orders under this threshold: North Island (non-rural) $29.00, South Island (non-rural) $45.00

PLEASE NOTE our free delivery excludes commercial orders.

Do you deliver to rural, RD or non-standard delivery locations for free?

We DO NOT offer free delivery to rural / RD addresses, please provide an alternative address for delivery.

If your delivery address falls outside our carriers' normal delivery zones there will be an extra freight charge, this is typically remote parts of New Zealand. Please contact Cintesi on 07 577 6138 or via email here if you have any questions regarding your delivery location.

Does someone need to be home to accept delivery?

We recommend having your order sent to your work address if being at home during business hours is not an option. However, you can request for your items to be left in a safe location at your risk.

Cintesi's preferred carriers will require a signature/receiver's name as proof of receipt – if you have requested goods to be left the driver will sign for this.

In rare cases where the driver cannot get hold of the receiver the items will be returned to Cintesi Tauranga and you will be liable for any additional freight charges.

Does the freight fee include insurance?

Yes, freight costs include full insurance.

Does the free freight policy include delivery past ground level?

No. Our free freight policy includes delivery to the ground floor or a loading dock only. Should you wish to have your item delivered to past ground level you will need to contact Cintesi on 07 577 6138 and we can provide you with a quote.

How do I track my order?

As soon as your order has been dispatched, we will send you an email to confirm that it's on the way. This email will also have your tracking number, so it's really important that the email address is entered correctly when the order is placed.
