Default Re: UK Shops Delivering To NZ

Hi guys

Please excuse my ignorance, I'm not in NZ yet. OH, daughter and I are emigrating from London on the 30th Nov.

Anyway...

I'm thinking of setting up a small 'project' music studio in one of the bedrooms. I did the wise thing of getting a Macbook pro about 2 months ago, but apart from that, I'm going to need everything else. Apple's Logic Studio software, Midi Keyboard (roughly 49 keys should do), Speakers, Condenser Mic. I calculated I'd have needed around 1k GBP to get half decent kit....

I realise this isn't something most of you will know but what's the situation like in NZ in terms of Music Technology shops? We're going to live in Hamilton btw.

Does anyone know of any? How much do you think I'll need in NZ$? Would I be better off trying my luck at getting UK relatives to send in post and take a chance with taxes? Separate parcels for each item?

Sorry for so many questions on one reply... If anyone's clued up on this I'd be really grateful.

Cheers

AL

It appears that Top Man deliver for 9 quid per order to NZ - but again - watch your spending limit - havn't checked out Top Shop yet though Have just checked and yes - they do indeed! oh and even free delivery on orders over 75 uk pounds (cant remember how to do the ASCI pound sign dammit) so shop away to your heart's content!

Apparently my Mother-in-Law informs me there's a Top Shop in Auckland.

Clothes really do seem expensive here though... Hmmmm

Not that I have ever been, so can't really comment but this is a Top Shop store within a store at Takapuna.

Down Riccarton Road there is a British shop. Mostly tat and a load of stuff I have never seen in the U.K but I am pretty sure they have the suet you are after. They also have suet down the baking aisle at Pak'n'Save, westfield

for food stuffs try Union Jacks in Wairu Park Auckland they deliver for a small fee all over NZ and are cheaper than other UK shops and supermarkets. Last year they sold out fast of easter eggs and the stock was huge

M&S have had free delivery permanently for the past 18 months or so. Just that they seem to have removed the conditions that the order had to be more than thirty quid - so it's back to being free on all orders.
