*Tubes can be sent using the above postage rates provided they meet the criteria for maximum dimensions and weight. Tubes larger than Lineflow size, but 650mm or less in length and 70mm or less in diameter, can be sent using the Lineflow size.

Large parcels (3-25kgs)

  Across town (price up to 25kg) Within island (price for first 5kg)* Nationwide (price for first 5kg)*
ParcelPost Tracked $5.70 $8.80 $13.70
Courier $9.20 $15.20 $32.10
Courier & Signature $15.20 $21.20 $38.10

The additional 5kg price (up to 25kg) is the same as the price for the first 5kg for ParcelPost Tracked and Courier, but for Courier & Signature the additional 5kg price (up to 25kg) is as per the price for the Courier service.

You will be charged the greater of:

  • The actual weight of your parcel (as determined by our scales), rounded up to the nearest 5kg, or
  • The volumetric weight of your parcel, rounded up to the nearest 5kg.

To calculate volumetric weight (kg), measure the parcel’s height (m) x length (m) x thickness (m) and multiply this by 200. e.g. (0.5 x 0.4 x 0.3) x 200 = 12kg.

For example, a 14 kg parcel going within the same island would cost $25.50 using the ParcelPost Tracked service.

The maximum dimensions for larger parcels are:

  • Weight = 25kg
  • Volume = 0.125m3
  • Length = 1.5m

Dimension and weight restrictions include the packaging.
