We've teamed up with New Zealand based shipping company Extreme Global who have UK associates and experience of transporting Go-Pods to NZ already. They can really make the whole exercise a total doddle!
Additionally, the Go-Pods prices shown on our site include UK sales tax of 20% which would not be charged. So this offsets the importation costs making the whole process much more affordable.
Here's a rough idea of costings & other details to help you to decide.
The NZ Government charges duty at 5% on the purchase price of your Go-Pod.
GST (Goods & Sale Tax) is at15% on everything. So that's the purchase price, duty, seafreight & any local charges.
Our preferred New Zealand ports are Auckland and Lyttelton and Nelson, while in the UK we ship from the Port of Hull.
Transit times 42 – 45 days to Auckland and Lyttelton and 58 days to Nelson. Please allow 4 weeks from time of ordering to delivery to the UK port.
Freight Rates are around £1400.00 GBP and the local NZ charges are NZ$1500.00 which includes container unpacking, Customs clearance & MPI (Bio-security inspection).
There is a charge of £250.00 GBP for transportation from the Go-Pods depot to the UK port of exit & insurance is additional at approx. NZ$300.00.
This example is from October 2018 and intended for guidance - the figures can be confirmed at time of your enquiry.
