Send a Parcel To New Zealand Fast - DHL Courier Delivery

Although situated in the Pacific Ocean, sending a parcel to New Zealand or even Australia is no problem for DHL. It is now as easy to send a parcel to New Zealand as it is to send a package to somewhere in the UK.

How to send a parcel to New Zealand

Sending a parcel to New Zealand can be done through a DHL Service Point which can be found using the store locator. Once you’ve found your nearest store, pop-in and choose a FREE box to package your items in. Finally, complete your label, pay and send your parcel in-store.

Alternatively, you can arrange a collection from a location of your choice such as your home or business address. Complete your parcels details online, pay and once your courier has collected it you can track your parcel using our track a parcel tool. Arranging a collection can be done through DHLitNow or DHL by Phone.

Cost to sends a parcel to New Zealand

Parcel shipping prices to New Zealand vary depending on the service you choose. These prices can be found using our online quote tool. Our cheapest option is via a DHL Service Point, however if you are looking for ease, booking a courier collection through DHLitNow or DHL by Phone costs slightly more.

How long does it take to send a parcel to New Zealand from the UK?

Without taking into consider customs delays, you can hope to see your parcel delivered within 3-4 working days through our express delivery service.

New Zealand parcel restrictions

DHL has a list of prohibited items that cannot be sent for carriage, please see what you can and can’t send. Although very similar, New Zealand has a few extra items which can be found using their customs website.
