    Hawkes' Bay Anniversary, Marlborough Anniversary and Labour Day public holidays

    If you’re closing for the Hawke's Bay Anniversary public holiday (20 October), Labour Day public holiday (23 October), and/or Marlborough Anniversary public holiday (30 October) let us know so we can hold your deliveries until you’re back.

    If we know you’re away, we’ll be able to keep your deliveries secure, and drop them off once we know you’re back at work. You can relax and enjoy yourself, knowing that your packages are safely stored with us.

    Letting us know is easy, just update your details at: www.courierpost.co.nz/contact-us/business-closed/

    If your plans for these public holidays involve sending bulky or fragile items, or large volumes, we can help with that too. If you let us know early and get the freight to us as soon as possible, we can ensure everything goes as smoothly as possible.
