Documents Needed

After you have paid for a shipping service to New Zealand, you will be redirected to a page where you can download and print out the relevant shipping labels, i.e

AWB (Courier Air Waybills - barcode) - Proforma or Commercial invoice - Address label.

The above documents are standard for any international shipment.

Please note, if additional documentation is required for the import of any particular item, it is the customer's responsibility to provide them at destination.


Goods travelling by 'Cargo' are subject to different restrictions to those travelling as carry-on luggage.

A shipment to New Zealand is deemed unacceptable if: it is classified as hazardous material, dangerous goods, prohibited or restricted articles by IATA (International Air Transport Association), ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) or other relevant organisation. Many items which appear harmless in everyday use can pose danger on air transport and are consequently forbidden for transport.

The following page displays a sampling of common prohibited and restricted goods.


Packing Advice

Your parcel must be boxed and well packaged. This will reduce the risk of damage to any item during transit or any associated automated distribution process.

Please be aware the item is not taken by hand from collection to destination and will visit many sorted facilities on its journey. For that reason, you need to protect the items to ensure they make it from A to B safely.

The following packaging guidelines are recommendations to assist you in packaging your shipment:


Shipment Protection

When you book a shipping service to New Zealand, you will be able to choose an appropriate level of cover for your shipment. We offer enhanced parcel protection for up to £2000 for a small additional fee.

If you do not purchase enhanced Shipment Protection, your shipment will be only covered to a maximum value of £50 as per the limited liability set out in our Terms & Conditions and subject to your parcel passing minimum packaging requirements.

Please note that the declared value for customs purposes is not related to the declared value selected for Shipment Protection. We encourage all customers to purchase shipment protection cover for loss or damage.

RapidParcel.com goes to great lengths to make sure your parcel delivery to Wellington is carried out smoothly, simply and conveniently. You can now book your Wellington package delivery content in the knowledge that your every need will be catered for, including collection from wherever you happen to need it collected from.

There are many reasons why you might wish to send a parcel delivery to Wellington. The city is the capital of New Zealand and home to more than 350,000 people, and the political centre of the country, home to the New Zealand Parliament and all government ministries and departments. According to the 2009 Mercer Quality of Living Survey, Wellington is ranked 12th in the world and this, alongside the relative cheapness of its cost of living, is reason enough for people from around the world to look to emigrate there. The films of Peter Jackson, in particular the Lord of the Rings trilogy, have boosted New Zealand’s profile on the world stage and led to Wellington’s increased popularity within the film industry.
