Products & Pricing

Item descriptions

All description is provided to the best of knowledge at the time of cataloguing. From time to time we miss issues, and some times the items may be damaged while in storage. We will notify you before sending if we find our description does not match the item, in which case you will be given the option to cancel the transaction for full refund.

New Zealand G.S.T

Prices on this website are GST exclusive. We often sell internationally so it makes sense to exclude NZ Goods and Services Tax. If the shipping address is within New Zealand, then GST will be attracted and included at checkout time.

Insurance Valuation

Where you require a valuation for insurance purpose, we can arrange our partners Fine Antiques to provide appropriate documentation. Please note a full replacement value will most often be higher than your purchase price and the valuers will charge for their time.

Unique discount pricing

Every so often we will set some categories into our unique discount mode. Each day these items will drop in price, on and on until they hit a preset bottom value. The day after the discount drops to the bottom value it will shoot back up to the original value.

PayPal transactions

We accept PayPal however charge a fee to cover the extra fees charged by PayPal.

Payment before shipping

We only ship items once we have received cleared payment. There may be delays where PayPal transactions are held due to differing country policies.

No, the only taxes we collect are G.S.T on transactions based in New Zealand. Any import taxes and duties you might be charged to import into your country will be payable by you.

No, each country may have their own set of rules about what can be imported and what can not. The responsibility is firmly placed on you the purchaser. All costs and losses will be born by you with AAADNZ not accepting any liability.
