Not the normal shipping question: New Zealand to USA?

Anyone done it? Any good leads on it?

Companies and suggestions at all? Prices seem to vary a lot. From Ro-Ro to container it can be up or down for either depending who I talk to.

Looking to ship a 25 plus year old truck so no real "issues" importing but I wouldn't mind a lead or two for reliable companies. Going to be shipping sometime mid March or so.

I have one in mind that a friend in NZ knows but there are a few bad stories out there on them so I'd love some more input.

Thanks!
Doug

Thanks so much. I also get mixed answers on shipping to West coast VS East coast.... odd.

I'd love to get it onto a boat that also needed an extra crew member!

I am open to any port in NZ since as of now I have no return ticket and will be traveling most of the country with the truck so I can drop it where ever it needs to go.

West coast is cool with me as I can toss my dealer plate on it and drive her home to Maine.

Thanks!

Thanks so much!!

Doug

By the way: Truck will be a 4wd Hilux double cab, LC70 series or a D90/maybe Series3? Nothing any larger than that.

If it's a container I may snag some "stuff" or another truck for someone?

I asked for ro/ro quotes based on 17 cubic meters of displacement-the size of a 110. Hilux double cab will probably be very close to the same.

Hoegh says they aren't interested in an export, only imports into Auckland. Waiting for Wallenius.

Based on 14 cubic meters for a 90 I'm coming up with $1494 Auckland to Baltimore. This quote doesn't include US port fee's importation etc but should give you some information to plan from. Also based on the way the email from NZ read I would assume that the export process in NZ may be something you may want to research. A broker is recomended here:

Hi Doug,

Please find attached quote, as requested.

If you need assistance with customs clearance etc in Auckland. I suggest
you contact
grant@aironaut-customs.co.nz for a quote.

Please contact me if you have any questions or require further
information.

Best Regards

Thank you very much for all the help and info. I will look into the export issues and transport to the west coast as well. Got to be cheaper I'd think?

Thanks again!
Doug

It looks like Long Beach, Jacksonville or Baltimore were all the same price. The only difference is the canal fee. That said each us port has different fees-she only included NZ fees. In my opinion for the couple hundred dollars more I'd let it ride all the way to Baltimore. You couldn't drive cross country for that in fuel.
FWIW this quote is cheaper than Southampton UK to the East Coast- kind of chaps my hind parts. Has to be because of UK port fees.

Thanks again - I agree on the costs.

Looking at NZ's web site I don't find many issues with exporting an older truck.... but I'll contact them directly asap just to be sure. I also can't find any issues at all bringing it into the US other than the small % fee based on value/bill of sale etc.

So it looks like an '86 or earlier truck will be a pretty easy deal come March.

I have a few picked out already but who knows what will actually be around when it gets closer. I have a friend in Auckland who can hold onto something for me till I get there Dec 31rst if I found something that was a killer buy - but I'd much rather see it and drive it before I fork over any cash.
