    Default What to take?

    We are debating a few items for shipping. Will our xbox and wii work in NZ? Is it worth shipping bikes or will we be able to replace for a reasonable price?

    Are you shipping via a container?

    Our xbox & wii worked fine. Can't comment on cost of bikes - we cleaned ours and brought ours with us.

    Cool

    Container shipping is relatively cheap so space or cubic meters should not be a big issue. Take the bikes. On anything electric see if it says 120-240 on the power requirements sticker. If it says 240 you should be fine. If it is an external power supply and doesn't say 240 it can most likely be replaced. If you have something like a Dyson vacuum cleaner made in the usa you can buy a 240 replacement motor directly from Dyson in NZ.

    Hop[e this helps a little.

    If you have space in your container share, just take all you need and can afford to get over there because coming here most things are relatively more expensive than in most places people can be coming from.
