If you require a Saturday delivery or urgent courier please contact the gallery and we can quote you for these services.

What Courier company do you use?

New Zealand

We use GoSweetSpot, a freight broker which allows us to book Post Haste and Castle Parcels for deliveries within New Zealand.


Artworks purchased online will be sent with NZ Post.
For larger artworks (eg paintings) these would be quoted individually and may be shipped with FedEx or TNT.

Can I have a parcel delivered to a PO Box?

Unfortunately we are not able to send artworks to a PO Box.  We require a physical address and for someone to sign for the parcel so please consider sending to a business address where possible if you are not likely to be at home.

How can I track my artwork?

Once your artwork has been collected by our courier, you will receive an automated email from us with a track and trace link.

Please ensure that someone is at the delivery address to sign for the package. We recommend sending parcels to a business address where possible and that you sign for your parcel with your name and the letters STI (Subject to inspection). This helps with any claim regarding damaged goods.

What happens if a courier damaged my artwork?

Please check the outside of the package is in good condition before signing for the delivery as Parnell Gallery cannot be held responsible once the chain of custody is broken.

Contact Parnell Gallery immediately so we can lodge an insurance claim and arrange a replacement. We will require photos of the damaged packaging and damaged artwork.

How will my artwork be packaged?

Generally, fine art prints will be rolled in acid free tissue paper and sent in a thick tube.

Some smaller prints may suit flat-packing rather than being sent in a tube. Flat packed prints are sandwiched between thick cardboard with an outer layer of tough wrap.

Depending on the size of a framed artwork, it will be either be wrapped carefully in recycled material or for large artworks with glass it may require a custom-made triple layer cardboard box which we will need to quote you for separately.

Sculpture will be packaged in bubble wrap and a recycled box.
