Default NZ Ebay/Electrical Goods/Cars Etc

Hi Everyone,

Need to sort this out will our electrical goods work in NZ (TV, Computer etc) or should I just Ebay the lot off it and buy new.
Also what is the price of electrical goods in NZ like, & 1 last thing just looked at NZ ebay site and is it me or is it a bit naff for buying cars etc.
So any links to electrical/home furnishings/ car dealers would be appreciated.
Every answer gets the Karma.

Thanks in advance.

Paul

All your electricals will work,just bring 4 way adaptors and change the plugs to kiwi. The TV is hit & miss, i think Jack the Lad has a list somewhere, and there are LOADS of cars on www.trademe.co.nz, or try www.turners.co.nz

HTH

Almost off topic: A couple of friends have used AngloPacific for part containers and SevenSeas for teachests. All great and above board. Actually SevenSeas are the cheapest around for teachests.

I am still in two minds whether to ebay everything or container it home. I just keep thinking of my two leather couches that I bagged for a bargin £400. so far my continer would cost around £1,200 - the big question is could I buy the same couches in NZ for $3,000??????

Dilema's.

As above...your new mantra is trademe.co.nz

Forget eBay. It's not a player in New Zealand.
