When you place an order on our website, you are making an offer to buy the goods and/or services. When you place an order you will be required to provide details to enable us to fulfil and deliver the order to you.

We will use this information to process your order and may use this to let you know of any items which may be of interest such as special offers.

Product Information

We have made every effort to display the products featured as accurately as possible. The equipment you use to view our website may impact on the display of our products.

Measurements provided on our website site are approximate only. Age information is supplied as a guide only. Please check the manufacturer’s instructions and/or packing, if in doubt please contact us for further sizing information.

The website is provided for our customers to buy, or find out more about our products and services. Products displayed may not be immediately available  to purchase through our website.

We reserve the right to limit quantities or limit the number of products customers can purchase in a single transaction.


Prices are displayed in New Zealand dollars, inclusive of goods and services tax (GST). We have made every effort to provide accurate pricing information on our website. In the event of a pricing error on our website, the inaccurate price will not be honoured and we reserve the right to cancel any orders placed on our online store.

You may be charged a small percentage if you use a credit card. This will be no more that 3.5%

Stock Availability

Products displayed on our website are subject to availability in our  online store. We have made every effort to provide accurate stock availability information on our website, however, we do not guarantee that if a product is classified as being “in stock” that stock will be available to purchase online.


If the item is faulty we will meet our obligations under the Consumer Guarantee Act to provide a remedy.

We are under no obligation to accept the return of goods if you change your mind,  but will try to deal with each case on its merits to find an acceptable solution to both parties. In these cases it will be the responsibilty of the client to cover both  freight (return and despatch)charges if any. The item must be returned in a saleable condition complete, ie:  in the same condition that it left our store.

If the incorrect size has been ordered, we may be able to exchange for an item of the correct size providing the original is returned in a saleable condition, but the client must cover despatch costs both ways.  Each case will be treated on its merits.

Terms of Sale

In addition to the above General Website Terms and Conditions, the following terms and conditions of sale apply to all purchases by you through our website. By completing a purchase order you are stating that you agree to be bound by all of these terms and conditions.

Acceptance of Orders: Despatch of orders is subject to stock availability and you will be advised if a product is unavailable. To the maximum extent permitted by law, we will not be liable to any person if we decline to fulfil, or are unable to fulfil, an order.

Prices:  We will charge you the retail price shown on the website at the time you submit your order. You may also be charged additional delivery fees.

Payment: You may pay online by major credit and debit cards via a payments gateway.  We will not store any credit or debit card information as this is handled by the gateway software. You may also pay direct via internet banking through your own bank.

Delivery: We currently only supply to New Zealand addresses. Please ensure the delivery address and receiver’s name for your order is accurate and complete (including any business name if shipping to a work address) as we may be unable to change these details once the order has been placed.  We will not take responsibility for any orders that go missing due to incorrect delivery information provided by you.  As we use both NZpost and third party courier services, we will endeavour to pass items ordered to the carrier selected at latest by the end of next business day if not the same business day.

Delivery to rural addresses  may take longer in some areas. Delivery will be deemed to have been made when the goods arrive at the delivery point agreed with you, or, if you are to arrange delivery, when the goods are available for collection by you.

You must notify us within 8 days of the dispatch date (as stated in the email we send confirming dispatch) if you have not received an item. Risk in the goods will pass to you on delivery.

Once your order is confirmed we may not be able to  change or cancel any aspects of your order. Please carefully check your order details before completing payment of the order.
