Due to the complexity of the furniture industry, it is almost a mission impossible to pre-define the accurate shipping cost for each product. –If we do not sell with very high price and then offer “FREE SHIPPING” or simply charge you VERY HIGH and SAFE TO US' shipping fee.
For shipping cost, there are 3 kind of situations:
- A. Some small products especially those flat packed and light weight items, they can be shipped by couriers. So the shipping cost is predefined accurately.
- B. Most of the other products are bigger or heavier than the maximum of the couriers can take, so we will use a shipping company. The shipping cost will be charged on the basis of cubic miters, weight and detailed shipping address. The shipping rate is pretty cheap for major cities like Wellington and Hamilton. For some small towns, it is pretty high and those rural or outside of the town delivery will be very expensive. --In this case, you can ask to pick up on call from the shipping company's depo in the town to save you a fortune
- C. For some very close delivers, that means in Auckland area, we can call a local shipping company to send a truck for your order. This is a small truck designated just for your order. The price starts from $65 per deliver. --Not per item, no matter how many items, up to a full truck load.
In case A you can see the detailed shipping cost already displayed on the product page. But if you are buying multiple items, maybe you can save on combined shipping cost.
In case B & C, the shipping cost needs to be calculated by ifurniture staff and then add it onto each specific order. We need to check the size and weight of the order, the location and zoning in the rate matrix, compare different shipping companies' rates to select a safe and econormical one for you. So we have to process the shipping cost manually because we think for you.
Once you submit the order, you can see the shipping fee and total cost shown "To be confirmed".
