This card details when the delivery was attempted, the item number as well as what the receiver needs to do to arrange redelivery of the item.

Sure thing! Just arrange redelivery of the item online now and select the option ‘collect from CourierPost depot or PostShop’.
Can I book a specific time for redelivery?
You can nominate the day for the redirection, redelivery or collection of your item up to 5 working days in advance. Unfortunately we are unable to accept bookings for a specific time of the day.
To avoid any inconvenience please consider the options of redirection to another address where you will be available to sign for the item, or collection from a nearby CourierPost depot or PostShop.
Why do I need to provide my drivers license details when arranging to have the item redirected to another address?
For your security as part of the re-direction service, we require you to enter your New Zealand Driver Licence details below as we need to authenticate your details against the NZ Transport Agency database.
Do I need to take ID when I pick the item up form a CourierPost depot or PostShop?
Yes, please bring a valid photo identification for collection, e.g a valid drivers licence or passport along with the Card to Call.
Will CourierPost retain my driver licence details or use them for any purpose other than the redirection of my item to another address?
CourierPost does not store your Driver Licence details when you use the online service to redirect your mail.
CourierPost will use the NZ Transport Agency database solely to authenticate your identity using the information you provide from your New Zealand Driver Licence and only for the purpose of the particular redirection request.
Where can I find ticket number?
On the area shown on the card the ticket number will either be written or a sticker applied.
What happens if I do nothing?
We will automatically attempt to redeliver your item to the original delivery address on the next Saturday.
What happens if I am not there when you try to delivery it a second time?
Please note that if the second delivery is unsuccessful, you will need to arrange to pick it up from the nearest local CourierPost depot as indicated on the second card we leave. Any items that are not collected within seven days following this delivery attempt may be returned to the sender.
