Your purchase can be sent directly to you or your gift recipient, whether they live in New Zealand or overseas.
Please see below for our delivery methods, times and fees.
New Zealand Orders
We offer FREE standard delivery for all New Zealand orders over $85 delivered to a single address. For orders under $85 the delivery cost is $5.95.
Your order will be delivered quickly to you as all "in stock" items on our website are held in our warehouse, ready for immediate dispatch. Our delivery target for purchases made before 1pm weekdays is 2 to 3 working days (Monday to Friday).
Parcels are delivered Monday to Friday. Please see "Urgent Orders" below if you require a Saturday delivery.
New Zealand orders are tracked and delivered by Courier Post. We use their non-signature required service so your order will be left at your door or in your letterbox if you are not home to receive it. If there isn’t a safe place the courier will leave a calling card with details of how to collect your order.
Should you have a gift emergency, we also provide an Urgent Delivery Service for urgent orders and Saturday deliveries. These nationwide orders are given priority and dispatched first.
Our Urgent Delivery Service is overnight on business days for non-rural orders placed before 1pm weekdays and costs $11.95 (maximum weight 5kgs).
Our Urgent Saturday Delivery is available for non-rural orders placed before 1pm on Fridays (maximum weight 5kgs). Please note, Couriers will not deliver to any business addresses on Saturdays so you must send your order to a residential address to use this service.
Signature Required - $2.95 per shipment
If you don't want the courier to leave your parcel unattended please select the signature required option. This is especially recommended at Christmas time when parcel theft is at peak, or for high-value orders.
If a non-signature service is selected instead, neither Courier Post nor Not Socks are liable for parcels that are stolen, damaged or lost after an order has been correctly delivered.
Please note, Signature Required is only available for Standard or Urgent Delivery options. Free Delivery shipments will be sent non-signature required.
We deliver to rural addresses at no extra charge. Please note that these orders may take 1 to 3 days longer to arrive.
PO Box Deliveries
Yes, you can choose to have small parcels delivered to a PO Box address. However, if you have a physical address available, we strongly advise you use this instead. Not Socks is not liable for any parcels returned to us because the courier is unable to deliver to the PO Box specified.
Click & Collect (Christchurch Only)
Combine the convenience of ordering online and the flexibility of picking it up at a time that suits you during the business day. Simply order by 1pm Monday to Friday, select 'Click & Collect' during the checkout process (i.e. on the checkout page after your have entered your billing information and contact details) and your order will be ready for pick-up by 9am the next working day. You will receive a shipment notification via email confirming that your order is ready for collection.
Our office is open Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm and is located at Unit 2, 150 Cavendish Road, Casebrook, Christchurch. Please bring a copy of your order (which will be emailed to you immediately after you place it) when you come to collect it.
Please note that orders paid by bank transfer can take 2 to 3 days to be processed by the bank, so may delay your order. As mentioned above, we will email you as soon as your order is ready for collection.
Feel free to contact us if you have any queries.
International orders are shipped by New Zealand Post’s International Economy Courier service. Therefore, you will have the security, efficiency and quality handling of a tracked international courier service.
For orders less than 2kgs, delivery costs are:
- Australia – $24.95 (24hr dispatch weekdays)
- All other international destinations – $49.95 (Currently unavailable due to the Covid-19 outbreak)
We will notify you if your order is over 2kg and will cost extra to send overseas. If so, you will have the right to cancel or change your order as you choose.
Target delivery time for Australia is 3 to 8 weekdays. All other overseas orders are 5 to 15 working days.
Note we do not ship to freight forwarding companies.
Additional Charges on Overseas Orders
Our prices do not include import fees, duties, tariffs, taxes or other import charges which may be payable in other countries. So please be aware that your order may incur these additional charges which the recipient will be responsible for paying.
Pre-Ordering Items at Not Socks
The advantage of pre-ordering at Not Socks is your ability to reserve products before they arrive at our warehouse.
Our pre-orders work just the same as regular orders, except you will receive your order as soon as the product arrives at our warehouse or is officially available for sale.
We only ever put an item on pre-order when delivery is guaranteed. That's why the vast majority of our pre-orders have a delivery date of 1 to 2 weeks, rather than several weeks or months.
If you're paying by credit card your card will be charged when you place your order. Alternatively, if you're paying by internet banking please ensure you’ve made payment at least a couple of days before the item is due.
Note pre-orders are also covered by our 90 day returns policy. So you have three months from the day of delivery to return the item in its original condition and packaging for an exchange or refund - no questions asked.
Special Delivery Instructions
Please double-check your delivery information. Let us know during checkout in the comment box whether you have any special delivery instructions. If your order is returned to us due to incorrect or incomplete delivery details, we will happily re-send it to an updated address for you, however another delivery charge will apply for this.
Also, please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or queries.
