Shipment to rural addresses

https://catsanddogs.co.nz/ ships to rural addresses within New Zealand, using Post Haste Courier and NZ Couriers.

It may take an extra day or so for deliveries to rural addresses as the courier hands off items to a rural depot or agent and a second, rural courier forwards on to your door.

With frozen items, you will need to collect from the nearest depot/agent in your area the day after dispatch. Agent/depot will contact to advise it is ready for collection.
