    Default Share a container maybe??

    Hi there, I am a UK guy who has moved out to NZ. I am currently in NZ and want to bring a few bulky items out here.

    If anyone has spare contaainer space to offer then I?d be pleased to hear from you. Need to bring my Jet Ski and maybe 6 tea chest sized boxes.

    Please feel free to msg me directly.

    Alternatively, if anyone wants to share a container heading this way then also get in touch as my parents back home will be organising one if I fail to find space.

    Look forward to hearing from you if this sounds like a good idea.

    Regards,

    Paul.

    Hi Paul.

    Most shipping companies will offer a shared conatiner service anyway and will just charge you for the volume you take up.
    You don't have to find someone to do the sharing with they sort everything out for you.

    Do you have any recomendations of companies to use in that case?

    Guess I?m just being a bit cheap and should really just cough up and look happy like a true Brit hehe!

    We personally are using PSS removals, i think a couple of others on here have used them too.

    Take a look at the main website list there are a few removal companies on there to try for a quote.

    Hi Paul,

    It will probably be cheaper if you can find someone on the forum with room to spare in their container, although a lot will depend on where the container is heading and where you need your stuff. We were quoted about ?1,200 for a part load of stuff that wouldn't fit into our 20' container. We ended up leaving things behind because they weren't valuable enough to justify the extra cost.

    If you decide to ship a part-container load, the shippers won't move your stuff until they have filled the rest of the container. It could take days, weeks or months (but hopefully not years ) before your stuff leaves the depot, let alone lands in NZ.

    Anyone else know what sort of rigmarole you have to go through to bring a jet-ski into NZ? It's not a road vehicle (note to self - duh!?!) so I'm sure you won't have to worry about the LTNZ/WOF/Rego/Statement of Compliance hurdles, but the threat of Didymo will be enough to excite the MAF-Man..........

    Err, I have to ask......... what's Didymo?

    (Edited to add: I just googled it and found out - shame on me for not knowing )

    (Edited again to add: I wonder how many other people will now go off and google Didymo )

    (Edited again again to add: Sorry for hijacking your thread Paul )

    Oh er, learn something new everyday, must try and incorporate "didymo" into a sentence over here and see what reaction I get - could be fun ;-)

    My parents used to run an antiques business Paul and we used to use Bishops Move to ship single items to foreign climes, not too expensive and not too slow to fill loads (and I think the busier they are, the quicker they'll fill). They're based in Exeter and you can always "google" then ask for a quote.

    Good luck and hope you don't suffer too badly from the dreaded you know what!
