Heard all this before down through the years. Same for the other one. Moving Co I think.

You do the paperwork for MAF and give to WVL or TMC whichever the 3rd party movers this NZ side are.
They take your paperwork .
Container sits around.
They give your own paperowrk to MAF
MAF do their thing which they would do regardless if you handed in own paperwork yourself.
MAF do or do not levy fees .
3rd party mover levy 'service fee' on top of MAF fees ( except I certainly hope this scammy carry on is no longer happening.)
You pay up straight away or else no container and perhaps incur storage fees to boot.

When you book back in the UK you pay for door to door service excluding MAF fees. Double check there is no service fee and bluddy shout long and hard to your original shipper about no service.

Thanks for the info BEVS. The invoice had the following items:

Customs ITF Fee
MPI Quarantine Exam Fee

Not sure if there is a hidden charge there?
