Accurate delivery estimates are displayed on the product page and in the Checkout before you confirm your order. For example, look out for our delivery estimator on the product page, as shown below:
Delivery estimates take into consideration both the delivery address and the types of products being ordered.
The remainder of this article discusses delivery times in more general terms.
We use Courier Post for New Zealand orders, which allows fast and reliable delivery to destinations across their comprehensive domestic network. Delivery times vary depending on a product's stock status and the intended delivery address.
Most In stock at Mighty Ape products are delivered overnight anywhere in New Zealand – provided the order is placed before the advertised cut-off time (usually 4pm Monday to Friday). Larger products take an additional 1–2 days to be delivered to the South Island. Rural Delivery and Dangerous Goods (e.g. fragrance, aerosols) may take an additional day for delivery.
Same Day Delivery / Evening Express Delivery
Same Day Delivery is available to some Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch suburbs. All items in your order must be In Stock at Mighty Ape for this option to be displayed. Same Day Delivery orders are delivered between 6pm and 9pm in the evening on the same day your order is dispatched.
If you are ordering on a business day and before the cutoff time, the option will be called “Same Day Delivery”. If you are ordering after the cutoff time or on a weekend or public holiday, the option will be called “Evening Express Delivery”.
Out of Stock Products
Products labelled In Stock with Supplier or Out of Stock can take longer to ship, as we need to order stock in from our supplier first. Delivery times can be a few days or a few weeks. A delivery estimate based on information provided by our supplier is displayed on the product page and in the Checkout.
Pre-orders for most new release Games and DVD/Blu-ray are shipped from Mighty Ape before the official release date – to ensure delivery on the release date. A “Day One Delivery” message is displayed on the product page where this service is offered.
