Default wicker furniture

I read somewhere recently that wicker furmiture is NOT allowed into N.Z. Really??? Is this right?? My 6 x dining chairs are wicker not to mention numerous baskets I was planning to ship. Does any-one know about this?

Had shipping comapany round and they just suggested that I put all my wicker baskets (there are many) & chair seats in the same box so it would be easier for inspection. I think they need to smell of jeyes as well

Just re checked this with another shipping agent that has been around today(Crown). It seems that wicker will certainly be fumigated and you will be charged accordingly.

Ive heard that the fumigating process is v. harsh and can ruin items so will have to have a think about it...no point in paying to ship stuff then chuck, may sell more stuff here than originally planned. Were not bringing garden or camping equip, just sold our tent and will replace later. Where are you heading to? Were moving to CHCH where my husbands family are, weve spent a lot of time there in the past and really like it, hoping to settle in Avonhead/ilam area....eventually would hope to buy a plot and build in countryside, space for ponies etc, Myself and 2 daughters are into ponies!!

Default Re: wicker furniture

Do a quick search on this forum under 'wicker'. I've been wondering the same thing, but it would seem that a lot of people get their wicker/rattan stuff through MAFF no problem, some of them without inspection.

I've got lots that I store yarn in, so I'm going to give them all a good clean, then put as much of the 'declarable' stuff in one place as I can.

I didnt realise that I have so much many baskets of various shapes & sizes, underbed storage drawers, linen basket and a big trunk all wicker. As you can tell I love my wicker for storage

Default Re: wicker furniture

I brought various wicker/rattan baskets etc. I did nothing to them in the way of cleaning (they are all used indoors only) & MAF were not interested in them in the slightest. I wouldn't worry about them, just bring them. The packers will probably just describe them as dining room chairs anyway.

Hi, totally agree with vitalstats
We took in all our wicker stuff, dog beds, numerous baskets etc. All of them were declared as wicker on the forms you fill in and MAF only wanted to see the dog bed - they just looked it and it was fine.
Take it with you, I reckon
MAF were lovely!

Thats great to hear that you got furniture in with no problems! I'm trying not to be sentimental about stuff, its a harsh process when you have to decide whats going and whats not, but I love my wicker stuff , bags, laundry baskets, bread, chairs and hate to dump it all!!!
I'm looking forward to a big shop prior to leaving...H&M, Primark - kids stuff etc, Gap, M&S. I'll be getting folks to send stuff out no doubt!!!

Default Re: wicker furniture

We took a wicker cane sofa the type you put in a conservatiry loads of wicker baskets etc no problems MAF looked at them buts thats all I just wiped them with a cloth with a little Jeys on it did remove dust but not ruin them, we also took bikes, tent, and garden tools we wiperd and cleaned all these again no problems to be honest them are more panickty with xmas decs than anything else!
Those tools that were rusty we sprayed hammerite, good quality furniture is expensive over there and is what ever the last boat from China bought so very little choice

The removers all said we could no take booze and I am only talking a dozen bottles of wine we ignored them again MAF had no problems and we did not pay any import duty!
