All tyres ordered from Tyresales, regardless of quantity, are sent freight free to any New Zealand urban address. i.e. 100% FREE FREIGHT! This includes small towns but excludes Rural Delivery address’s and islands like Waiheke Island, Stewart Island or Great Barrier Island etc. We recommend that customers with Rural Delivery addresses have their tyres sent c/o their stock and station agent or a friend or relative living in a nearby town.
The freight company used to deliver your tyres will vary from location to location. Deliveries in Auckland, Tauranga, Hamilton, Gisborne, Wellington, Christchurch and Invercargill would normally be on a “same day” basis by Courier Post. Other centers would normally be on a 1 or 2 day service with freight forwarders like Toll Ipec, Mainfreight and Daily Freightways. Exactly which freight forwarder used would be dependant on considerations like service and price to any particular location.
Tyresales target is to ship all orders on the day payment is received subject of course to the time of the freight companies last pick up of the day.
Tyres are a valuable product so we always require deliveries to be signed for. We always request a phone number so our delivery agents can phone ahead and organised a mutually convenient delivery time.
And you may want to ask “Could my tyres get damaged in transit”? Actually, it is almost impossible for that to happen. Our tyres are extremely tough and hard-wearing and it is almost impossible for them to get damaged while they are being sent to you. However, in the extremely unlikely eventuality your tyres arrive damaged (this has NEVER happened before) you should refuse to accept delivery. But just about the only way I can imagine one of our tyres getting damaged in transit would be if it was run over by a train!!
