WHAT DOES "AVAILABLE ON BACK ORDER" MEAN?
From time to time, we may sell out of a phone model or there maybe delays receiving phones that we have ordered from the manufacturer or from our supplier. During this time, we allow you to place a back order and than when the phone arrives back into stock, we dispatch it to you promptly.

For back ordered products, allow 7-10 business days. All stock is dispatched from our Christchurch warehouse. If we are notified by our suppliers of any delays beyond 10 days, we will contact you and let you know.

We do not courier phones to a Parcel Locker or a Parcel Pod. For security reasons, your delivery address must be either your home, work or a business address, as we require a signature for all deliveries.
WHAT TYPE OF WARRANTY DO YOU OFFER?
We offer either a one year standard warranty or a two year "Premium Plus" warranty on our phones and tablets (see phone listing for warranty details). The warranty covers any manufacturing fault, manufacturing defect or manufacturing failure that occurs within the warranty period from the date of purchase.
DO YOU PROVIDE A TAX INVOICE?
Yes, we provide a GST tax invoice for every sale. Tax invoices are issued and emailed to you automatically along with an order confirmation. Enjoy total peace of mind, knowing that when you place an order, you are dealing with a trusted GST registered New Zealand company.
DO YOU HAVE A CUSTOMER SUPPORT CONTACT NUMBER?
Our customer support phone number is provided to everyone who purchases a rugged phone from us. We use our contact form (that you can use to request a call back) to screen all incoming enquiries. This frees up our support staff so they can focus on looking after genuine future customers as well as our current customers.
CAN YOU SUPPLY SPARE PARTS FOR A RUGGED PHONE I PURCHASED ELSEWHERE?
We only source and supply phone parts for our customers who purchased their rugged phone from this site or from one of our other global sites in the Rugged Phones group. Unlike most of our competitors, we have factory direct access that allows us to source some hard to get parts. This allows us to provide world class support to our valued customers who supported us when they purchased their rugged phone.
DO YOU DO YOUR OWN WARRANTY REPAIRS?
Software issues are dealt with "in house" but for hardware issues, some of which require specialist tools and knowledge, we use professional mobile phone repairers throughout New Zealand. We also supply parts to some of these mobile phone repairers when necessary. We want our customers to know that their phone issue has been repaired properly and in a timely manner.
DO YOU SELL TO PEOPLE OUTSIDE OF NEW ZEALAND?
Only residents of New Zealand can purchase a rugged phone from this site. Residents of other countries can use our contact page to message us to arrange a direct purchase from our international warehouse.
DO YOU SELL ON FACEBOOK?
Warning: We have never had a Facebook page. Please do not get tricked into buying from any site or page on Facebook that claims it is "Rugged Phones NZ" or "Rugged Phones NZ Ltd", even if they quote our NZBN or company number. We are aware of scammers using our excellent reputation, to try and scam people into buying rugged and non rugged phones from Facebook pages, over the last five years. This site (ruggedphones.co.nz) is the official site of Rugged Phones NZ Ltd trading as Rugged Phones NZ.
