try toll.

i know they move cars interstate.

i work in transport my experience is if the company is big enough they will have sweet contacts and organize it all. even if they personally dont touch the freight. they will just charge you their 10% (or whatever) included in their quote.

is it permanent or are you wanting to drive your car around on a holiday etc?
its something like $3-5k to ship a car in a container from japan to here
so i'd have to imagine it would be a bit less to NZ

http://www.emigratenz.co.uk/emigrate-new-zealand/should-i-ship-my-car-out/

I'd just open the whitepages and find shipping companies that deal with the public
but unless your car is worth >$20k its probably not worth it

sell it here, buy something else over there
they dont pay any tax on cars there because they dont produce any cars (import taxes etc)

I've heard if you take off the wheels, the guards and something else and ship them seperately it's a lot cheaper because it's classed as spare parts. I dunno if that's true or if it was whether they've closed that loophole, nor do I know just how much cheaper it was. That's what I was told when I was looking at importing a car from japan though.

possible but you'd be an idiot to. you've already paid the stupid aussie import duties and you'll be shipping it somewhere with none. better off just selling it here and buying a new one there.

unlikely to be worthwhile, in NZ cars are pretty cheap.

Correct me if Im wrong but doesnt NZ have no Import tax? It might be easier to go to NZ and import your car across from there to bypass Ausi Taxs and laws.

I dunno how helpful this is going to be (didn't read the thread), but the brother in law sent his VX Commy to England for $2000 AU 5 years ago.

go figure - he ran it around for about 6 months and then some idiot wrote it off in a prang. the insurance paid out $55k AU because (get this) it's "an exotic import".

He bought it 2nd hand new for ~$35AU in 2002.

I'll have to update this with model/year details the next time I talk to the family

Honesty I don't know anyone in their right mind that would bother, they are nearly giving the jap imports away here.

Hi mate, it will cost you around 1200 to 1500 to ship it over to nz,thats roll on roll off. there will be costs at the port here in oz and there will be costs at the port in nz around 250 to 350 au. you will alll so pay duty and gst on the value of your car in NZ. not sure of the duty value but gst is 12.5%. best shipping co to use is kiwi shipping call this guy Mario at Seaway customs he can hook you up ph 36204960 .

Un less you have spent a fortune on your car and its worth a lot to you then do it but just to let you know you can buy a good r33 in nz for 4k up. hey i have an aristo for sale if anyone is keen twin turbo one 0450426240 cheers
