Angry Ships!!! I see no ships

......that's because it's bl**dy broken down in Brisbane & now the s*dding container has got to be offloaded onto some chinese container ship that isn't due in till 4th June and MAF have given us a nice long list of stuff they want to inspect, most of which is because they can't understand ( nor can we!!) the abbreviations used to describe the contents of some of the boxes!! It was originally due in on 19th May

All I want is the toys for the kids, and my PJ's!!

We've got Woodbourne down the road from us. I could always try sneaking in there

Evening!! He's gone to bed but I think it's this with a Leopold scope as an extra!! He's off into the Richmond Ranges at the weekend I think, if he gets it zeroed in time!

He's not happy that the container is elayed either as I'm sure you can imagine! His cami gear is on there too :curse:

Beachcombers is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Re: Ships!!! I see no ships

Hi Sarah

In 90% of cases where MAF take a interest in a container, it's because the shipping company do not bother to provide the correct paperwork.

Ask your freight forwarders to provide a BACC certificate. If they can not, then they have not done their job properly and you should not be liable for any additional MAF clearance charges.

OK. Lets say been out more than a couple of times and need a bigger freezer. and bank balance for a couple more toys Been invited to a day out in Central Otago over the weekend so fresh fruit, grape juice, and ducky rabbit for tea on sunday

Richmond Range seems a good choice, plenty chammy and pork. need to look at the sounds as well, good all round apparently

He's got a colleague who is an ex pro hunter so, I don't think I'll be seeing much of him before too long Keep trying to persuade him to take the DS (and DDs too!!) then I can go and do the Abel Tasman walk, but seems to have fallen on deaf ears!

As for the freezer, we've already bought a 2nd one, trouble is the 1st one in on the container.....
