Default Shared container from UK to NZ. Flexible

Hi there,

I'm looking to bring back 1, possibly 2 classic motorcycles from the UK to NZ and looking for someone with container space they would sell to me. Im pretty flexible on dates and ports.

Cheers,

Rowan

I'm also on the lookout for a shared container to bring in a medical examination bed to Christchurch/Lyttleton. If anybody has a suggestion that would be most welcome?

Just out of interest- how big is half a container? and how much are you looking at cost wise? we are travelling back in Sept so need to send mostly boxes but possibly a cot and sofa- no idea how big a container is though?

A standard 20' container is approx the size of a normal garage.
Exterior dimensions 20' long x 8' wide x 8' deep
Internat dimensions 19' 4" long x 7' 9" wide x 7' 9" deep

A standard 40' container is just double the length so approx the size of 2 x normal garages end to end.

Hi. I'm also looking or someone with space in a container for two small pieces of furniture (about 0.5 m cubed). Is anyone having any luck finding someone, or otherwise a company that does not want to charge a ridiculous amount?

Anyone know the cost to bring a motorbike back to NZ? Whats the cost for a standard container these days? (I know... how long is a piece of string and I should do my own research...)
