COVID-19 Updates

For everyone’s safety we will be using contactless delivery. 

All parcels will be packaged up safely, with our staff following strict instructions on hygiene and cleanliness. This includes, but is not restricted to, washing of hands and use of hand sanitizer during packaging processes. 

Pick up and then deliveries will use PBTs own no-contact procedures. This means your parcel will be left in your mailbox or at your door, unless you have specified another area in the delivery instructions. 

PBT expects delivery times to be 1-2 business days for within the South Island, and 2-3 business days to the North Island. With an additional 2 business days for rural deliveries. PBT cautions that there may be a delay in delivery of up to 2 days, due to staff restrictions on distancing.

If the tracking number supplied shows an item being scanned as “out for delivery” that morning, then your parcel should arrive during that day.  There is no way to know the exact timing of delivery, however, once delivered, the status should change to “delivered”.

Returns, refunds and exchanges

You may return most new, unopened items within 30 days of delivery for a full refund. If the return is a result of our error (e.g. you received an incorrect or faulty item), we will pay the return shipping costs.

You should expect to receive your refund within three weeks of us receiving the returned items, however in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly.

To return an item, contact us at [email protected] or 03 443 1110. Once we have received and processed the returned item we will notify you of your refund via e-mail.

All purchases of climbing ropes and hardware, and gift cards are final and cannot be returned other than where a right to a refund, replacement or repair exists under the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993.

If you need a different size or colour of any other product, we are happy to exchange your purchase, as long as you can return the item with the original packaging and all tags still attached.

Consumer Guarantees Act 1993

The Consumer Guarantee Act sets out minimum standards for goods sold in New Zealand. In the event that goods sold are not of good quality or are faulty, the customer has the right to a repair, replacement or a refund.

Fair Trading Act 1986

The Fair Trading Act is designed to protect the customer being misled, either intentionally or unintentionally. This applies to all aspects of the promotion and sale of goods and services including: pricing; where the product was made; where the product is from; the meeting of New Zealand safety standards; availability of products in store and the sales techniques used. The Commerce Commission enforces the Fair Trading Act 1986.
