If a business address is supplied and only standard shipping chosen, the order will not be dispatched until an alternative residential address is supplied or an additional courier upgrade fee is paid.

* If you are Rural Delivery, please state this in your address - there is no extra charge for standard delivery to a rural address. If you want 1-2 days courier delivery to a rural address, please select that option in the delivery options drop down box at checkout.

* Residential address are preferred over business addresses as NZ Post often has difficulty finding some CBD type addresses or simply dosen't deliver to them.

* NZ Post is our delivery contractor as they are the easiest nationwide deliverer to letterboxes, businesses, P O Box services and Rural delivery connections.

* Orders placed on Thursdays and Fridays will usually be held over for Monday dispatch to avoid sitting in a post shop over the weekend going nowhere. As our cultures are living organisms we aim to keep them 'Bagged up' in transit for as short a time as possible.
