Hi, my boxes were here two weeks before I left the UK. After I was here for four days they were still in Auckland at customs I chased them up. Turns out customs wouldn't release them until they new what was new stuff and what was old stuff. My carriers used DHL to get my stuff over but DHL hadn't told them about the hold up so I didn't know either.
After two hours at customs at the airport they were released and I got them a few days later.

Normally takes a couple of weeks once they arrive, for all the paperwork etc and for anything to be inspected. I would check today that they have arrived and also ask about the paperwork so you don't hold up things your end.

Our boxes arrived, we watched and waited online, then eventually rung and were told we hadn't completed a consignment declaration. No one had told us to do it, no one rung and asked, it was just sitting there waiting grrrrrr
So yes ring them and find out.
