SHIPPING RATE INCREASE – NEW ZEALAND  FROM 1st July 2022

It is with HUGE disappointment we are having to increase shipping fees in NZ.  Our shipping costs have gone up over 50% since December  2021 for various reasons.  However we will continue to cover a majority of shipping , and continue to offer free-shipping for orders where we can.

FREE-SHIPPING for Order values over $70 NON-Rural & $90 Rural

  • NZ$6.50 for non-rural orders under $70
  • NZ $10.50 for rural orders Under $90

We strongly suggest that if you live Rural you have your order sent to a work, friend or family address that is not rural.  We understand this is not always possible but we appreciate the cost of Rural delivery is high.

 

SHIPPING & DELIVERY   – NOTE WE HAVE REDUCED THE FREE-SHIPPING ORDER VALUE TO $60 NON RURAL & $80 RURAL 

FuelMe is doing all we can to keep shipping rates low.  We have a flat Rate Fee of:

  • NZ$5.99 for non-rural orders under $60**
