How much is the delivery/freight fee?
All purchases over $99 are shipped freight free. For purchases below $99 we work on a zone freight system.
Zone 1 – Cape Reinga to Whangarei: $5.00

Zone 3 – Rest of the North Island: $8.69
Zone 4 – South Island & Great Barrier Island: $11.09
Rural Delivery Surcharge: $3.00
Unfortunately we must charge this additional fee because smaller courier operators are sub contracted by Courier Post to deliver your parcel from the nearest Post Office. Courier Post on-charge this fee to officecentre.
Freight is calculated based on your postcode. Please ensure that this is correct when placing your order through the checkout.
Can I have more than one delivery address?

You can edit or delete any address in the same section.

We will generally ship orders placed before 3pm same day, or after that time during normal business hours the next day. You should allow 2-5 days for large items (e.g. office furniture & business machines). It is not usually possible for us to arrange delivery on a weekend or statutory holiday.

No, we offer an online direct to address service. However, remember all orders over $99 shipping is FREE.
Why have I received one item of my order but not the other?
Delivery of your order may be split into several consignments due to stock availability or type of items included in your order; for example furniture or non standard sized items maybe shipped separately. We will advise you prior to shipping.
