Our team is away from 24th December, returning on Monday the 7th of January.
Whilst no-one will be in the office, our support email will be checked on a regular basis and on-call phone diverts will be available from our switchboard.
During the Christmas and New Year period, Post Haste, Castle Parcel, Now Couriers and New Zealand Couriers will be closed on statutory holidays only:
25th to 26th December
1st January to 2nd January
The suggested dates of close off to ensure delivery pre-Christmas are as follows:
Auckland Metro Thursday 20th December
North Island Wednesday 19th December
South Island Tuesday 18th December
These are a day earlier than we would normally suggest but with Christmas on Tuesday we are expecting a lot of businesses will close on the Monday and there will be a large number of residential deliveries the week prior.
