    I have a 33-34 Ford grill I want to ship to New Zealand. I found a box big and strong enough to ship it safely. I took it to the post office and they said its too big for them to handle. I took it to UPS and they said because of its size, not weight, it would cost almost $600.
    No joke!
    Can someone recommend an alternative?

    thanks,
    David
     
  2. Find someone here on the hamb that is shipping a container to new Zealand,,post in the wanted section.

    I know some of the guys in California are loading up containers from time to time. HRP

    A guy called Martin who works for Famous Pacific Shipping would be a great person to speak to his email is enquiry@famous.co.nz or look at their website www.famousautousa.co.nz
    Plus another guy is Steve Curle at Mainfreight in LA phone 562 295 1350
    There are several others available if none of these work out - let me know if you cant contact either of these guys - its an easy move once you know how
     

  5. Kiwi Shipping in Carson CA will handle it for you. Steve Curle, or Matt.
     
  6. Get hold of 4t6ford on here. PM him.
    He is coming over in a few days and is bringing back a container of stuff.
    I'm sure he will have room for you.
    His name is Rod.
