New Zealand Shipping

We ship DHL Express to New Zealand for as little as $25.00
. New Zealand has a flat GST (goods and services tax) of 15% on product, shipping and duties. this is not collected until the total taxed amount exceeds $60NZ.
This means that orders over $400NZ are always supposed to be charged a 15% tax and any duty fees applied to any specific items. Additionally New Zealand customs charges $38NZ if they decide to collect duties and taxes. Orders under $400NZ, by that logic, almost always are charged nothing, unless you have ordered many items with high duty. However, most of the items that Levelninesports.com sells are DUTY FREE (skis, snowboards, ski boots are all duty free items, among other things), so the quick rule of 'under $400NZ=no tax/duty' works in almost all cases. Remember too all prices listed on our website are in US$ and NZ customs does include the shipping price in the value of your order.

Shipping rates to New Zealand will change based on the shipping weight of the items in your cart. To check the shipping total for the items that you are interested in, simply add them to the cart and input an New Zealand address, at the bottom of the shopping cart "shipping options" will show the available shipping options (DHL Express will be the only option to New Zealand for the time being.)
DHL Express usually takes 6-8 days to make delivery in New Zealand, though we've seen quick deliveries in 4 days (and we've seen slower deliveries too, usually because of a delay at the customs office).Note:
Some products cannot be shipped to New Zealand due to vendor agreements, most of these items will be clearly marked as such and you will be unable to add them to your cart.
New Zealand Testimonials:
Im just wanting to say WOW! My skis and bags etc arrived today. The time that it took is incredible so i would like to say a huge thanks for incredible service, and you have a great team who I have chatted away with who have helped me in my decisions. We are off on Thursday for a ski trip and had my fingers xd that they would arrive in time, and they did. Had I ordered this in NZ they still would have not left the depot (so slow here). A few months ago I ordered boots from you and the same service and how prompt they arrived blew me away. So now I can ski those slopes in style. Thanks again LN - you rock and look forward to dealing with you in the future.
