If you’d like to apply for an account with Rhino, please complete our account application form here and one of our team will be in touch. Our credit terms are simple – payment upfront on your first order and then stritcly 20th of the month following invoice. Exceptions to this are for custom products, light trailer orders and export.
Orders received prior to 2pm will be generally be shipped the same working day – to ensure your order leaves the same day please order as early as possible. There are a few exceptions to this timing – non-stock items, custom items, large stock orders and most car trailer products. With this whole Covid-19 gig, we do experience weeks where this doesn’t go to plan due to spikes in demand or supply chain – we communicate this at the time of order.
Freight is sent using the most cost-effective and practical means. Our streamlined systems and relationships with freight companies ensure that your orders will be delivered as quickly as possible. In New Zealand, we use Post Haste for small/loose items and Mainfreight for items on a pallet. In Australia, we use Aus Post / NZ Post for small/loose items and Mainfreight for items on a pallet. Post Haste tracking is here and Mainfreight tracking is here. Check out our dedicated FAQ on Freight – track and trace orders.
Every order we send is assessed for the most cost-effective mode of delivery – either on a pallet or via a courier.
The Health and Safety of our team, freight companies and customers is our top priority. Lifting overweight, bulky and odd-shaped freight is a risk that we have mitigated through limiting the size of any one package to 20kg. This changed in July 2021 following a review of our manual handling processes.
Most guards will still be dispatched as normal. Some guards will now be dispatched as singles or two (rather than packs of 2, 3, or 4) or on a pallet (whichever is more cost-effective). This will impact a limited range of large or heavy products such as Spreader Guards, Tandem Truck Mudguards (plastic and stainless), Aluminium Truck Mud Guards and Stainless Steel Truck Mudguards.
You can track and trace the location of your order. How? View our freight tracking instructions here: https://mudguards.co.nz/freight-tracking-instructions/
