DELIVERY, RETURNS & WARRANTY
We provide a door to door delivery service throughout the South Island. Cares will access the most cost effective and reliable delivery to be paid at the rate indicated.
Delivery charges are calculated in the “Shopping Cart”. Please ensure you choose the correct delivery region and area code. We will advise you if you have chosen the incorrect delivery region.
Deliveries do not require a signature and if you are out when the delivery is made, the delivery driver will leave a card explaining how to arrange a re-delivery (additional charges may apply) unless specific instructions have been made to leave the Appliance/ Product in a secure place. Please note that neither we nor the delivery company are responsible for any loss/damage once the delivery has been made. It is desirable that the Appliances are installed directly in-house by our Technician / Delivery person. You must keep your signed delivery note to support any damage claims.

Expected delivery times are 1-5 working days (ideally within 24 hours) depending on the destination. Delivery times may however be extended during busy seasonal periods due to heavier demand.
