- SHIPPING & DELIVERY
Delivery can only be made within New Zealand. We do not deliver to PO boxes. Delivery times are only guidelines, not guarantees. Elite Fitness will not offer compensation for deliveries that do not arrive within the specified time frames. All deliveries are signature on delivery, unless instructed otherwise.
We aim to deliver your order as promptly as possible. However, we do not have control over your order once it has been passed to the courier/freight company. Some deliveries may be late due to your location, accidents or local disruptions. In these instances, Elite Fitness will not be liable for any consequential loss. Please ensure that you CHECK your delivery before signing for it.
Pickup is available at the website price on stocked items from our Auckland Warehouse.. Currently the warehouse is available for pickups between the hours of 10am-3pm Mon-Fri next business day after order processed e.g ordered on Monday, processed and invoiced on Monday, pickup is Tuesday. If you need to collect outside of these times, this is possible but will delay your order. Please let us know by email to email@example.com or call us on 0800 243 834. Details will be emailed to you with Warehouse address and instructions once your order has been completed and fulfilled.
- FREIGHT OPTIONS
Basic Freight is a door to door service. This means the item will be left near or by your door or at the end of your driveway. If the truck or vehicle cannot access your house it will be curbside delivery. Usually delivered by normal freight means that depending on size of product i.e. if over 25kg you should expect to assist in the un-loading of the product. If freight is really heavy please have assistance on hand as normal freight does not in-clude multiple people or specialist equipment to move or unload items. For larger, heavier goods we recom-mend that you ensure the correct number of people are available to lift the item from the truck as the driver may not be willing to assist. If you cannot remove or lift the item yourself or with assistance, delivery may be deferred to a different date or time and additional charges may apply for redelivery or storage. Please do not ask drivers to lift items more than what is specified by OSH or to lift items into the home as refusal often of-fends.
All orders over 25kgs are sent by basic freight. With Basic freight ensure:
- Adequate persons are present to lift the item from the truck if need be
- If the item cannot be lifted into the house or a covered area, please have something which can cover the item (incase of rain etc)
- If you are not at home and the item requires redelivery or cannot be removed from the truck be prepared to pay additional costs.
- Ensure you inspect the goods thoroughly for damage before signing for goods. If the goods are damaged please note this on the consignment note i.e. I received this but not happy as the box was damaged, or dam-aged / missing parts etc.... In the case where the item looks badly damaged or mishandled refuse to take delivery. If you sign for an item you are accepting that the item has been received in the condition it was expected, and the freight company will not honor any claim for damage. Elite fitness will not be able to claim for damage on your behalf.
General freight is a very basic destination to destination service no bells or whistles. Cheap efficient and cost effective. If you require a more personal service you may want to pay the additional costs.

- Business Deliveries
A business address is one that is located in a business district. If you work from home, this does not make your residential address a business address. All couriers prefer to deliver to a business address, so where possible please do so. This will speed up your delivery.
- Shipping Policy
Elite Fitness will not be liable for any failure to deliver ordered goods or any delay in doing so. Furthermore, Elite Fitness have no liability for any damage or defect to goods delivered that is caused by any event or cir-cumstance outside our control including, but not limited to: strikes, lock-outs and other industrial disputes, breakdown of systems or network access, natural disasters.

It is not always possible for a freight com-pany to call you before delivering goods. A track and trace can be requested for your order once it has been processed by dispatch.
Once an order has been processed by the web/phone sales team, it is sent to dispatch. As there are multiple orders coming in from the online team as well as other departments such as retail stores, service department and our commercial department, we use a queue system. Once your order comes up in the queue, it gets printed for Dispatch. The Dispatch teams role is to pick your order, have it checked by a second staff member, pack the item(s), measure the dimensions (if larger than 0.125m3 and/or multiple items are being shipped), en-ter the details into the freight system, and then place a shipping address label on your package. This process is subject to how many orders are in the Queue system and can take 1 business day during off peak times, and up to 3 business days during peak times. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding the ship-ment/dispatch of your goods: 0800 243 834
