FAQs

I have a parcel ready to send overseas, how do I generate a price for a one-off send?

We deal with multiple delivery partners that have different services and solutions.

Please phone us on 0800 655 010 or email nzcinternational@nzcouriers.co.nz to discuss your one-off send and the best option for you.

How do New Zealand Couriers calculate weight and prices for International Shipping?

Like all international carriers, we calculate weight and pricing using volumetric weight. Learn more about how volumetric weight is calculated.

What additional documentation do I need to send a parcel internationally?

To send any parcel internationally, you need to make a full customs declaration. This is done on a commercial invoice, which must have:

a) Description of goods you are sending

b) Dollar value associated with the goods (US$)

Our GoSweetSpot despatch system generates a commercial invoice for each of your international shipments.

Can I send electronics Internationally?

Yes, but IATA & customs have certain formalities that need to be completed. There are dangerous components like lithium-ion batteries in certain goods. Talk to our international experts during the set-up process to find how to send electronics with New Zealand Couriers.

Can I ship from overseas back to New Zealand (import services)?

Yes, we have import services in 220 destinations and countries internationally. Contact our international experts to find out more!

Do New Zealand Couriers pick up my parcel? If yes, do I pay extra for it?

Yes*, we provide all parcels/consignment pickup with all our deliveries at no extra cost!

*NOTE: this does not apply to one-off sends. You must drop your parcel at the nearest branch only after taking care of all necessary formalities with our international shipping team.

Can I use an online shipping platform for international sends?

Yes, for maximum accuracy, we deal with all our international sends on our GoSweetSpot platform exclusively!

Does it cost additional for set-up & integrations?

No, all integrations and set-ups are free of cost!

How much time does it take to get set up and send my first parcel?

Setting up an account can vary with each set-up type and your requirements, but the average set-up time is around 2-4 working days.

Will my day-to-day operations and operations be interrupted or inaccessible when I set up for international sending?

All integrations vary on the type of business and systems. However, even if there is an interruption, our Systems team works to do it on a day when it best suits you.
