    Default Shipping a container to NZ from Oz?

    Hi everyone,

    I'm a newbie and just looking for a bit of advice as to costs and what's involved in shipping a container to NZ. All experiences good or bad appreciated, and even if someone is looking to share costs, we are looking at moving January next year.

    Thanks

    Hi there!

    I shipped 17 removal boxes from Sydney to Auckland last year.

    $700 + $165 customs

    I did not take any furniture with me, only clothes etc...

    I remember that they picked it up on time and were great, but it took about 2 or 3months for them to actually ship it off. They kept saying they couldn't fill the other part of the container.. I think it was picked up end of January and I finally got it end of April...

    Hi PM of 6, welcome.

    Which country are you coming from? That might have some bearing on costs and it depends whether you would need a full 40 ft. container for your total house contents or a 20 footer for part contents and personal belongings.

    If you do a search for 'container' it should bring up some old threads about the subject.

    Default shipping into nz

    hi

    having recently made the jump ourselves i can wholeheartedly recomend FN worldwide , they shipped all of our things over from the uk.. i found them really helpful with all the paperwork..they really held my hand which is great because i found the whole immigration process a nightmare...so glad we did it though

    i dont know what they would charge you but they have a quote thing online F+N - Complete European & International Removals Service

    may be worth a look
