Shipping & Returns


Custom Tackle New Zealand stand behind the products we sell and we have a fair return policy. We want you to feel safe when you buy at Custom Tackle and we want you to feel confident that we will support you should there be any issues.


Freight within New Zealand is determined by on the type, size, and weight of products purchased. Rural delivery incurs an extra freight charge. All goods are sent by courier track and trace. Please note Rural Delivery Contractors will not deliver parcels over 1.5m (Rods!!!) - so you will need to supply an address where Aramex Couriers delivers, or arrange delivery to an Aramex depo for collection. Shipping for international orders is determined by the weight and size and type of products purchased. Over sized, or heavy orders, typically longer than 1.5m or more than 3kg, goods might not be to be shipped internationally. This typically applies to rods! Please contact us before making an international order. Express shipping attracts extra costs.


Unless stated otherwise, all items carry a 12 month warranty (some products have longer warranties).

Faulty goods can be returned in person to the Custom Tackle showroom or send them with a covering letter containing your contact details and any relevant information. Send to:

Unused and still sell-able goods, complete in their original packaging may, be returned to us for a full refund for up to 1 month after purchase, excluding:

1. Electronics which may only be returned 7 days after purchase, and

    Coronavirus (COVID- 19) Updates   

Due to the wide spread of COVID-19 globally, we are still experiencing major international delivery delays due to insufficient airfreight capacity and government restrictions. We expect this to continue for some time.

We anticipate our Online Store may face delivery delays both domestically and internationally. 

Expect longer dispatch timeframes for orders from our warehouse.



NZ is currently experiencing high volumes of parcels. At the moment please allow 5 business days after quoted delivery date.

If your delivery is late please submit an enquiry with us. We are sending every product tracked to ensure ability to locate. Please have your tracking number ready.



Certain areas may be affected by delays of 6-8 weeks.

If you are located outside the affected areas and are looking to place an order via our website, please understand that there may be delays on receiving your order while companies are resuming services.


We apologise for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding during this time. Thank you for your patience.
