Availability 

If for any reason we are unable to supply the item you have ordered, we will contact you.  Please be aware that there may be slight differences to the products pictured. The differences can happen when the supplier of a product improves the original product without updating advertising or pricing. These are minute differences and will be of equal or better quality than what has been advertised.

Making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our store, and add any items that you wish to buy into the shopping cart. After you have finished your selection, click on 'Checkout' and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to complete the order.

We accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express. All prices include GST of 15% unless specified.  We also accept internet banking / direct credit transfers.  Please be aware that internet banking payments can take up to 2 business days.

Please use your order number and name as a reference.

We understand that sometimes errors are made but please be aware that if you choose to pay by internet banking / direct credit and you make a deposit to another account in error, Fish City is unable to take responsibility or aid in recovering the deposit and is unable to send the goods on the order.  If this should occur contact your bank as soon as possible and they can request the deposit be reversed on your behalf. 

If you have made a mistake in your order and cannot correct it in the shopping cart, contact us and we will correct the mistake.

When confirmation of your order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order.  It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice to your nominated email address. All reasonable care is taken with our stocking levels and pricing but in the case of any errors we have included this term to protect us.  If we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason you will be contacted first to ensure that the price or replacement product is acceptable.

Freight and Guarantees

Fish City has kept freight charges to a minimum which includes insured courier delivery almost anywhere in NZ.  We reserve the right to amend our freight charges from time to time. 

We charge our freight based on the size of a parcel and additional charges may also be added to large items like Chilly Bins.  This charge will apply when you process your order.

We allow pickups and can refund postage costs if you prefer to pick your item up.
Pick Up from Fish City Cnr Kahikatea Drive & Latham Ct, Hamilton:   Free

We dispatch your order when we receive confirmation of your cleared funds. We will normally send your order on the same or next business day.   Most deliveries are overnight but there are exceptions for example inter-island or rural deliveries.  Courier companies generally allow an extra working day for Rural Delivery and depending on your order size inter-island is 2 - 4 days.  If you would like a more definite time frame please contact us.  You must inform us within two working days if the goods are lost or damaged in transit so that we can make a prompt claim against the delivery company and correct the problem. Please quote your order number in all correspondence.

You agree that proof of delivery supplied by our delivery company is sufficient evidence to establish that goods have been received.

Fish City takes all possible steps to ensure that delivery of your purchase is as prompt as possible but we cannot accept liability for any loss or damage arising from delay or not delivering within the allocated time.  If for any reason we have not dispatched your order within 14 days or the date of order, you can cancel your order.  Cancelling the order terminates the contract with Fish City and if any payments have been made for this order we will refund you.

Deliveries that are made by Couriers require a proof of delivery signature. Couriers will not leave goods at an unattended address unless requested in writing by you at the time you place your order.  If you choose to instruct us for non proof of delivery then Fish City or the Courier Company will not be liable for any loss of the order. 

If the nominated address is unattended when the courier calls, they will leave a delivery card which will advise you where the shipment can be collected from.  Some couriers offer another delivery time for your convenience.  Always check your order for damages or missing items before signing for the package.

The risk in the item or items to be supplied to you shall pass to you at the time that the item or items first leave our storage facility en route to your delivery address.  Any item couriered is insured by the Courier Company.  They have stringent guidelines for making claims and anything outside these guidelines will be declined.  Damages or failure of deliveries need to be reported within 14 days.  Please contact us and we will assist you in making the claim.

If your item is not in stock, we will back order for you. You will always be emailed with the option to cancel your order if you would rather not wait.

Goods purchased for personal use have to meet a standard stated by the Consumers Guarantees Act 1993.  Goods may be returned if they are not of an "acceptable quality" which means "they are not fit for the purpose intended".  This means the product is defective and we are happy to refund you on the return of the item as long as it is in the original packaging and condition as when you received it.  Unfortunately we are unable to refund some items due to piracy issues or any special orders.  Special orders are items that are "just for you" an example of this is a non stocked product, line cut to specific length, modified rods etc. Other non refundable items include any used items, software, videos, books, DVD's and cut to length line, rope.   

Refunds on returns will be processed on receipt of the goods after inspection.
