Default DIY shipping - storage in NZ

Hi

we're arriving in auckland at the end of nov and have decided to ship our stuff ourselves.
Just wondering if anybody knows what happens at the other end. I think from reading other threads i need to organise an agent in auckland. But if we haven't found a rental by the time our stuff is ready for collection do MAF keep hold of it quite happily or do we incur daily storage charges (exhorbitant?) or pay an agent to store it for us?
Just worrying in case we are still in furnished accom/homeless by the time its ready for collection and have nowhere to put it

all part of the fun and games....any help as always much appreciated.

cheers

All I can offer to this is that MAF won't be interested in storing your goods at all. They will only care about what you are bringing into the country. Customs will also want to know the contents you are importing. There will be paperwork and declarations to do for both MAF and Customs before your goods will be released.

If you can't take delivery then you will need to find some kindly soul or a storage company.
