I sent mine just with them all together in the boxes and there was no problem.Just make sure their clean and if any are new use them before sending them or you may have to pay duty on any new items.

Another point is to check that trade tools are covered by insurance. My movers had a specific insurance exemption for trade tools and they proceeded to steal them.

Just dont tell them they're nicad and pack em with everything else.
my cordless tools are they same, it didnt even enter my head that
the batteries would be a concern. it it obviously wasnt as maff opened the
box they were in to check on some camping gear and didnt even look at em.

Evening Paul2

Am I correct in reading your post as you are sending your belongings by AIRFREIGHT instead of the usual sea route?

No it isn't cheaper. If you feel you will be needing trade tools to start work , do speak with your NZ employer . Often they can arrange for trade tools to be available whilst your own arrives.
My husband was here in NZ for a good two months before the container arrived. Both the employer and work mates were helpful with enough tools for him to work.

My husbands extensive trade tools came via sea freight in our container. That's power tools, recharge batteries and goodness knows what else by way of plumbing and general tools.

The amount of tools was questioned because himself has so many but there was no MAf inspecition and no problem importing the tools at all.

My husband bought a tool bag thing made from canvas and put what he could in it and just put it inside his suitcase with his xbox360 on other half wrapped in towels and it all came fine , just sent drills on in boxes but you could as bev says just borrow the most and bring just your general tools. my hubby also brough xbox and wii as well as 360 as he apparently couldnt live with out them lol in our cases..men lol
