Q. What is girth measurement? How is it calculated?
A. This relates to only international shipping. Girth is a measurement (in cm) taken of the width and height of an item. It excludes the length of the item. Maximum allowable girth to New Zealand is 140cm. Maximum parcel weight is up to 2kg
To calculate girth, Example.1:- 21cm (width) + 14cm (height) = 35cm. Then 35cm x 2 = 70cm. Then 70cm x 2 = 140cm (girth). So in this example if your item was those dimensions (21cm and 14cm) you could send it. (note as length is not used in the calculation at all the items length could be up to 90cm)
Example.2 :- 21cm (width) + 9cm (height) = 30cm. Then 30cm x 2 = 60cm. Then 60cm x 2 = 120cm. Girth of this item is 120cm, so it can be shipped.
Example.3 :- 30cm (width) + 10cm (height) = 40cm. Then 40cm x 2 = 80cm. Then 80cm x 2 = 160cm (girth). As the girth is greater than 140cm the item cannot be posted. Remember that the maximum parcel weight must be 2kg or less using the girth shipping method.
