Shipping information

We will endeavor to dispatch all orders within 1-3 working days. However, if an item is out of stock a representative from Baby Caterpillar will contact you to discuss an anticipated dispatch time or an alternative.

Our courier pickup is scheduled for 3pm Monday - Friday, therefore orders placed before this time may sometimes even go out the same day for overnight delivery.  Usually, orders placed after this time will go out in the next day's pickup (unless they are on backorder, then you will be notified). Courier on rural deliveries will take longer to be delivered. If you require a Saturday delivery, please contact us by phone or text on 021505544 for this to be arranged, otherwise, we do not deliver on Saturdays.  If a signature is required on delivery, please indicate this in the delivery instructions section, otherwise, we do not automatically use this service.

PO BOX deliveries take longer to be delivered as these are not collected by our courier, and need to be sent via a secondary courier system.

We also offer a complete International delivery service (see below for details)

International delivery details:

All Australian orders will be delivered within approximately 10-15 working days. All other international orders will be delivered in approximately 10-12 working days. International orders are sent via NZ Post International and are subject to customs rules and regulations.

Tracking orders in New Zealand and Internationally:

Once your order has been collected and scanned by the courier company, if you provided an email address at the checkout, you will receive an email notification allowing you to track and trace the ongoing progress of your order. If you haven't received anything within 3 working days, double check your spam folder.
