Important Christmas Delivery Information
We will ensure your parcel is dispatched on time from Batenburgs in Auckland but once dispatched we cannot guarantee delivery on the requested date due to the expected huge courier loads. This is why we recommend selecting a delivery date before Thursday 19th December as your parcel may be delivered a day or so either side of this date. Couriers are expecting their busiest Christmas ever with millions of parcels passing through their network this December. Because of this we strongly advise that you place your Christmas orders as early as possible. Placing orders early still means that you can select a delivery date of your choice but it also means less chance of disappointment due to the huge courier loads and expected delivery delays. Orders received after their cut-off times will still be dispatched but may be delivered in January 2020 so please ensure you check ordering cut-off times below for your delivery area in NZ. To pick up your order from our showroom in Newmarket simply select the “Pick-up from Showroom” option in the shopping cart. Our showroom will be open extended hours during December and close for the holiday at 12.30pm on Tuesday 24th Dec. We will re-open again after the holiday in January as normal. We advise that you do not choose hampers with fresh fruit or flowers for Christmas in-case there is a delivery delay. All other hampers contain non-perishables including the cheese which is sealed in an airtight tin and does not need to be refrigerated until opened.
The recommended closest delivery date to request for Christmas is Thursday 19th December.
