Korora Gifts Delivery Information
Korora delivers to every town, city and rural address in New Zealand including the ones listed above.
Korora gift boxes will be dispatched Monday to Friday within 24 hours of receiving your order. We use both NZ Post - Parcel Post Tracked service or NZ Post Ready to Go courier service for gifts required urgently. Orders received after 1pm on Friday will be sent the following Monday (excluding public holidays)
If you wish your box to be delivered at a later date of your choice, please just advise us of this when making your purchase.
NZ Post - Parcel Post Tracked asks to allow 2 to 3 working days for delivery depending on location and whether they are delivering to a city in the North or South Islands. Smaller towns and rural delivery can take between 2 and 5 days.
NZ Courier Service is the fastest way for your gift to be delivered. Orders received before 10am will be delivered to all major cities including Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin, Invercargill and Queenstown the following day excluding Sundays and Public Holidays. If you order requires guaranteed delivery on a Saturday, NZ post do charge a small supplement for this. If your order is received after 10am, delivery should be within 2 days.
Smaller towns and rural deliveries may take up to 3 days.
We keep a record of your tracking number so you can be assured the whereabouts of your box is always known and we can make any follow up enquiries on your behalf.

Delivery charges are up there with shoe re-heeling and washing machine repairs, a necessary evil that we would all rather not have to pay for!
We believe that delivery is part of the service excellence we strive to offer and are pleased to extend a flat delivery rate regardless of where your gift is being delivered to - in other words, one price for standard delivery anywhere in New Zealand regardless of size or weight of the box. Our delivery pricing is extremely competitive, especially inter-Island.
New Zealand Post do deliver on a Saturday as part of their normal service but this falls into their typical delivery schedule of between 2-4 working days delivery depending on location so Saturday delivery cannot be guaranteed unless you use their courier service.
Standard delivery between 2 and 4 working days is $ 9.95
