Is it worth delaying your crate? If you wanted them... otherwise my only other advice would be to find another retailer and choose something else.

I hope the rest of your emigration runs smoother!

Pray tell, why did you buy new stuff to take to NZ? They have the Warehouse in NZ. I don't think Customs will allow Argos stuff in.

Why would NZ customs not allow brand new furniture from Argos into the country?

i think there might be a problem if the items are unopened (i.e. still in original argos packaging) this may be seen as importing new goods rather than shipping own property.

or it might just be because its argos only joking i'm not that much of a snob..

Both reasons! If you're going to NZ you must buy your stuff from the Warehouse, not bring that English dross.

Note: THE Warehouse - not to be confused with the clothes shop of considerably higher quality in the UK, Warehouse.

Is that a yawn smiley? It's not very yawny. The new smileys are a bit on the not-very-good side, don't you think?
