4. The Fastest Delivery Times in New Zealand

With the extreme demand for water tanks in the North Island due to the island wide drought in Summer 20 - 21 on top of three years of covid, has caused significant delivery delays for the entire industry in NZ. Previously, we could deliver a large 30,000L  water tank within 2 - 3 weeks of ordering. Now, many North Island manufactures are delayed up to 15 - 19 weeks, and South Island manufactures around 10 - 12 weeks. (Please note, these shipping times do change regularly, please contact our team for the most up to date delivery times.) 

These delays will only continue to grow leading into Summer 23, when the demand for buying water tan rises coming into the drier months. 

We understand that these delays are inconvenient and certainly frustrating.We’re working with all suppliers to get these down as fast as possible. Many manufacturers are choosing to invest in more tank manufacturing equipment and delivery trucks to ensure this is not a long term issue. For immediate relief, we have RX Plastics 25,000L Water Tanks, RX Plastics 26,000L Water TanksRX Plastics 30,000L Water Tanks that can be delivered within 3 - 6 weeks in the North Island and 7 weeks in the South Island in effort  to help out people who require a tank urgently. This is up to 14 weeks faster than other merchants, for the exact same product. Please ensure you contact the team directly as these urgent tanks are not available online. 

Please also let us know if your urgent situation is regarding human or animal welfare and we, alongside our manufacturers, try our best to get these delivered as fast as possible.
