    Default Any recommended shipping companies from the US?

    Hi there. I grew up in NZ but have spent the past 20 years in the USA. My family and I are moving to NZ in September and are very likely to hire a container to ship some of our stuff. Any recommendations of shipping companies?

    Thanks

    Cool

    It will be more expensive but you might consider a using moving company. A container company doesn't normally deal in getting the container to you or packing it but the shipping part. If you are in a port city like LA it could be a good option but not if you are in Kansas.

    Didn't really consider that part. We are moving from Seattle to Auckland. I'll check some moving companies out too. Any reco's on those?

    Thanks

    Cool

    No but a moving company will come out to your house and give you a free quote. The moving company will sort out all the logistics. So get to comparing. It can be door to door or door to port.

    You know what to bring and what not to bring. Weight is not an issue with a container just the volume. So you just to know if you need a 20ft or 40ft.

    Default Cargo share

    Hi Kat,

    I want to bring in a motorcycle rack from USA to NZ and it's about 65lbs, so postage is quite expensive. Let me know if you are willing to ship it together with your stuff for a reasonable price.
