AGREEMENT OF ORDERS PLACED
This agreement is between you (the ‘customer’ or site user) and Pacific Helmets. Once an order is received by us we have no obligation to sell, supply or complete the order to you until it has been accepted by Pacific Helmets. Each individual order is considered a separate agreement; each order will be accepted by Pacific Helmets at our absolute discretion. Only orders for delivery in New Zealand will be accepted.


DELIVERY OF ORDERS PLACED
Delivery of orders will be made to the address specified by the ‘customer’, anybody who is accepting the goods at the delivery address nominated by the ‘customer’ will be presumed to be authorized to receive the goods on your behalf. Pacific Helmets will choose the freight provider and at any time have the right to change their freight supplier,  the deliveries will be during regular business hours; Pacific Helmets will not be liable for any alternative arrangements made with your carrier or any additional charges or fees that may occur. Our delivery charges cover only packaging, insurance and delivery to the nominated address for the first attempt, we suggest you nominate a delivery address where someone is available to receive the package during normal business hours to avoid delays/additional charges.


RISK & TITLE
Once the goods have been delivered to the address nominated by the ‘customer’ the risk and title is then passed on to you the ‘customer’ who placed the order. If you are not satisfied with your goods please refer to our returns/exchange policies. Pacific Helmets will not be held responsible for any items we do not ship ourselves, and strongly recommend a tracking number if returning goods. Pacific Helmets will not be held accountable for return postage charges or any duty reimbursement – other than in the case of the item being deemed faulty by the supplier. For all ‘change of mind’ returns, postage is the customer’s responsibility.

You are required to pay any additional shipping charges that may be required by the area you are receiving goods to outside of what is outlined in our shipping charges.

We will always endeavour to be as accurate as possible, however, we are unable to warrant (subject to the law) that product descriptions, prices or any other content will be error free at all times, and reserve the right to make changes after a purchase has been made and notify you of this change as soon as possible.
Shipping charges will depend on the type and quantity of product you order as well as the delivery address chosen by the purchaser, Rural Delivery will incur a small surcharge as all freight companies charge this surcharge. A full explanation of our shipping charges can be viewed on our website.
