Re: Shipping NZ to UK

Hi there, we have the removal men here a week today after being in NZ for 15 months. We had 2 quotes from Dunedin to Edinburgh of $7,680 for a 20 foot container. So not a conventional route. We got...

Re: Shipping agent recommendation from NZ to UK

Re: Well that's that...

Well the rate today hit $1.72, so any accumulated $ you have will be worth quite a bit in Blighty. I simply would not entertain coming to NZ from the UK at these rates. Even $2 to the £ was painful,...

Re: Shipping agent recommendation from NZ to UK

Ha ha ha or should I say Ho Ho Ho. You certainly know how to spoil yourself! Don't forget to grab yourself a decent sausage in Yorkshire as I haven't had one since I left the UK. So why do Kiwis have...

Re: Shipping agent recommendation from NZ to UK

I used to like going shopping in the UK, but that has never been a pleasure here, as I wander around thinking that that everyone must be high on P to think that these...

Re: Shipping agent recommendation from NZ to UK

Re: Well that's that...

Best of luck to you and your family. Frightening not knowing where you will end up in the UK. My Kiwi partner of 17 years and I arrived from the UK to Dunedin December 15. It is a great place,...

Re: Shipping from UK

Boner simply would not budge on price even to match PSS so we went with PSS. No damage at all. We used LETTON PERCIVAL for our insurance at about 1.25%. We never made a claim so can not assess if...

Re: Christchurch job offer advice please

Hi Gary,
You haven’t mentioned if you have been to NZ before. I have been in Dunedin for 9 months with my longstanding Kiwi partner of 17 years. I had visited NZ 10 times before and took the plunge....
