Shipping and Methods of Delivery

The freight cost for delivery of each product to you is set by aswines.co.nz. We are solely responsible for arranging delivery of the product.

There are three ways in which the we may complete delivery of the product. You must select your preferred delivery option at the time you place your order. Notwithstanding this, we have the right to insist on delivery via an alternative option. The options for delivery are:

  1. By courier to a designated address. This address must be clearly stated by you when you complete the order. There must be someone over the age of 18 present at the elected delivery address to accept the goods, and the couriers have the right to request the person accepting delivery of the product to produce satisfactory evidence of their age (including New Zealand driver’s license etc). If such evidence is not produced, or if there is nobody present at the designated address to accept the delivery, the courier may refuse to deliver the product and will re-deliver it at a later time. Any additional delivery costs incurred due to having to re-deliver must be met by you.

  2. By courier to a specified location on or inside a premises. The courier will not require proof of age identification, but the location in which the product is delivered must be specifically described to us at the time you place your order. We will pass on the delivery instructions to the courier. Once delivered by the courier the product will become entirely your responsibility (in, for example, the case of loss, damage or theft) and neither the courier nor AS Wines will bear any responsibility.

  3. By courier to a designated address where it is signed for by someone over the age of 18. Proof of age identification may be requested before signature is taken (as in option 1 above) if the courier staff believes (in their sole discretion) that the person accepting the delivery may be underage.

Expected delivery times are between 1-3 business days. This may be extended over busy seasonal periods due to the increase in demand. Delivery times may also be delayed due to public holidays and over the Christmas/New Year period.
