A furniture truck tipped on its side in Puketapu, west of Napier, destroying a steel barrier and fence.
The Second 2 None Movers truck was travelling west on a winding section of Puketitri Rd, near the intersection of Apley Rd, when the driver lost control in wet conditions at about 10.40am.
The vehicle came to rest on top of a steep bank.
The manager of Second 2 None said the driver was uninjured and the company was "in a very busy situation" trying to secure delivery of the truck's furniture so its recipients "can have a good night's sleep".
