Couriers will only deliver to residential or business addresses - PO Boxes are not accepted for security reasons.  Please ensure you have your order delivered to an address where someone is available to sign for it.  If you were unavailable to sign for an item when our courier called, they will leave a Card to call at the delivery address.  This card details when the delivery was attempted, the item delivery charges overseas will be determined as accurately as possible by weight and NZ Post charges.

Freight will be calculated for each order and shown as a separate item before you chose to enter your payment details and send the order to be processed.

We reserve the right to refuse or cancel any orders that we believe, solely by our own judgment, to be placed for commercial purposes, e.g. any kind of reseller. We also reserve the right to refuse or cancel any orders that we believe, solely by our own judgment, to have been placed fraudulently.

However, if you do not receive your goods within a reasonable timeframe, you must first lodge a missing parcel complaint with your local post office or Courier Company using the tracking number given to you by us after the order had been dispatched. This procedure must be followed before insurance will be paid out by the post office/courier service. We may deliver each item ordered separately if we chose for supply or other reasons. If this is the case you will not incur any extra delivery cost.

Aqua Vitae takes no responsibility for items not received if the incorrect address has been given for goods to be sent.
