Go-Pod lands in NZ!
An interesting letter from Tessa who bought a Go-Pod online and had it shipped over to her in New Zealand...
I hope you have had a relaxing and happy Christmas, probably less busy now its winter over there. Its 28 degrees here today.
Here is a picture of the Pod on it's way home to Nelson, having just traversed the Lewis Pass, one of NZ 's highest alpine road passes.
It finally was unpacked from its container in Christchurch, after 54 days in transit. It was so exciting to finally see it in reality and looking ever so tiny and cute. I am rapt with it.
I had no problem towing it with my Mazda 2 car, and unlike Britain New Zealand has very hilly and windy roads.
Am still sorting through all the technical stuff and might have a few queries for the after sales team.
I am so grateful for all your help in making the purchase and getting it on it's way to New Zealand. It's already got lots of attention and astonishment that so much is packed into such a small space , and able to be towed by such a small car. So I'm sure the pamphlets you tucked into it will be quickly distributed when it gets its first camping trip in early January.
Hope you have a happy and safe new year.
Cost note from Tessa: Jan 2019.
The total amount for shipping, including 15% GST (the NZ version of VAT) and 5 % import duty was , NZ $ 8921.
Bearing in mind the the GST and import duty was equivalent to the UK 20% VAT that was not charged due to being overseas and it was very similar to the original UK price.
