Delivery Information
What areas do you deliver to?

delivery1The Meat Box delivers New Zealand wide North and South Island.

We DO NOT deliver to RURAL addresses (sorry but this may take up to 3 days and we can’t risk our product sitting for that length of time) if you do live Rural you could organize your Meat Box to be delivered to a location for a collection that is not a rural address. If you are unsure whether we can deliver to your address please send us a message on the website and we will reply asap if we are able.

Deliveries are made Tuesday-Friday 9am-6pm
Business/ Company addresses  can be delivered between 9am-12pm




How do you deliver and when?

We use a national courier network, Courier-Post, to deliver our meat boxes. All our meat is packed with ice packs in an insulated chiller box to keep your meat chilled both during delivery and also sitting at your door. In temperature trials, our packaging system has been proven to keep meat at cold for up to 12 hours, so you can be sure that your meat will be in the best condition when it reaches you.

*Please note: If you are getting your order delivered to your business address, please ensure you have a chilled place to store your meat till you head home at the end of the day. Most orders will be delivered between 9am-5pm on your chosen day.

We know how busy weekdays can be so you don’t need to be home when we deliver; we can leave your Meat Box in a designated area, just let us know by including delivery instructions on your account/ check out.

How much does delivery cost?

delivery2North Island deliveries are at a flat-fee of $8.00.

*South Island deliveries are $15.00 per 5kg and additional $5 per kg after

example: Order 7.8kg ($15 +$5 +$5)

Each of our delivery boxes is designed to carry up to 8-10kg. Keep an eye out for freight specials on our Facebook page and monthly Meat Box newsletter.

* South Island bound orders have incurred a number of price rises from our courier provider since we began. In an effort to service ALL of the country we absorbed these increases to date and subsidised such. However, the cost to get orders to the South Island has become too high not to pass some of them on to the customer. The good news is, as we continue to grow we gain stronger negotiating power with both suppliers and courier providers. The only downside is this may take a little time and not see a result till the other side of Christmas. We do hope you understand we are really sorry to have to do this to so many of our loyal customers, but as all South Island orders are flown down overnight there is a large charge connected with this and we are truly doing our best to get the cost down.
