I would like some advice about shipping my household possessions to NZ.
I don't have a lot of furniture (and I know to leave the TVs behind because they won't work in NZ) but do have quite a few books (don't ask - it's a long story).
I would reckon that it would comfortably fit into an ordinary removal lorry so a 20 foot container should do it, including my motorbike which I am inordinately fond of. OK - questions :
1) What is the approximate cost of a container shipped door to door?
2) Who did you use to do the shipping - good/bad, recommended or what?
3) Any problems getting the stuff through customs and any charges incurred?
I know not to bring gardening equipment and tents etc. so they won't be packed but are there any other problem items that I should declare or take special precautions with?
All advice gratefully received
