Our Core Shelters offer great protection from the sun and rain. A portable gazebo built for NZ, tried and tested in our changeable local conditions. Great for summer days at the beach, family picnics at the park or as your camping HQ.
The shelters are 4.5m x 4.5m with a max height of 2.4m providing 20sqm of coverage. Also includes 1 side wall which is easily clipped on to any of the side arches. A range of accessories like walls, floors, rooms and connectors means you can choose a setup that suits your needs
Our shelters are made for NZ conditions, using tough durable 150D Oxford covers to stand up to NZ's damaging sun (twice thickness or many lower Denier shelters which pretty quickly break down and become 'brittle' and tear easily - read about tent fabrics and specifications) and with UV resistant coating. To suit our changeable weather, our shelters are waterproof with a PU3000mm coating and taped seams to keep rain out. The ceiling vent allows better airflow and avoids lifting in winds and heat build-up.
Straightforward to set up and once familiar would take 2 people about 15 minutes. Can also be set up by one person but just takes a bit longer. Connect the 19mm steel poles, lock the pole sections into place, place the cover over the top and secure with Velcro tabs and hooks at corner feet, and set guy ropes..
*These are designed as recreational shelters and are not intended for permanent use.

Which courier service do we use? We typically use Castle Parcels and Post Haste couriers. Delivery is signature required (except for rural deliveries) … feel free to send us delivery instructions if you’d prefer courier to leave your item (no signature required). Sorry, the couriers cannot make PO Box deliveries.
Are tracking details provided? Once your purchase is dispatched an automated email will be sent to you with the courier tracking details for you to follow your item's progress.
Can shipping be combined? Purchases can be combined to save on shipping costs but the final cost will depend on total weight, volume and destination. If unsure or you have a question, please contact us and we can let you know what combined cost will be. Maximum weight is limited to 25kg to send in one package.
How long does shipping take? We try to get your order on its way as soon as possible. Generally, when orders and payments are confirmed in the morning we do our best to ship them out on the same day. Orders confirmed in the afternoon will be dispatched the following day. For orders placed on Friday afternoons or over the weekend, they will be sent out on Monday.
Typical delivery times are next working day for Auckland and North Island addresses and 2 working days for South Island delivery. Add an extra day for rural (RD) addresses. Note that during the December peak season courier company delivery may experience some delays due to greater volumes.
If for any reason you have not received your order in the expected timeframe, please refer to the emailed tracking link and contact the courier company with your tracking number. As the courier service is ‘signature required’, if you are not home to receive your order when it is delivered, a calling card is left for you to arrange a convenient time for redelivery.
Which service do we use? We use eParcels - items are picked up by NZ Post and sent to Australia where they are delivered by Australia Post. When dispatched you will receive an automated email with the tracking details. Delivery is signature required. Faster courier services are also available with FedEx but please note that rates are for major cities only. For rural areas please contact us to confirm pricing as this can vary greatly.

How about courier services? We can also send items via FedEx which is quicker, tracked and signature required. This service is more expensive - please contact us if interested and we can quote you the actual price depending on product you're interested in and delivery destination.
What about taxes? Please note that any taxes or customs duties due for purchases entering your home country are not included in the purchase price and must be paid for by the recipient.
We believe our reputation and future is only as good as our product and the satisfaction of our customers. We strive to provide quality products, however, if there is any quality issue, we will do our best to rectify the situation as quickly as possible. Purchases should be checked upon receipt and any problems reported to us within 10 days, identifying the problem (preferably with photo evidence).
All purchases are covered by a 12 month warranty and the Consumer Guarantees Act against defects in manufacturing or materials. As is common practice with most camping goods retailers in NZ there is no warranty for storm or wind damage, normal wear and tear, UV degradation, accident or misuse.
After consultation with us, the buyer is responsible for costs of returning any item if necessary (as many issues can be resolved online) for assessment to determine repair, replacement or refund as appropriate. We will try to repair or replace any faulty parts or item to factory standard. If this is not possible we will exchange it for any of our other products to equal value, or where none of these is possible we will refund the cost price (delivery charges are non-refundable).
Where products have been used, packaging has been opened the buyer or the buyer has had a ‘change of mind’, they cannot be returned for refund.
