Delivering to New Zealand
Whatever the shape, size or value of your parcel, PACK & SEND delivers safely and securely to New Zealand. So, you have peace of mind, whether you’re shipping to international customers, sending gifts to loved ones abroad or even emigrating and need to relocate furniture, artwork and other valuables.
Our international shipping services are designed to meet your needs – from door-to-door tracking to express delivery options for your urgent parcels.
We can even arrange for your items to be delivered to one of our local New Zealand PACK & SEND service centres, where recipients can arrange collection at a time to suit them.
Customs Requirements for Delivery to New Zealand
All international shipments from the UK require customs documentation. This will be a commercial invoice.
Your courier service will be able to provide these documents for you – and when you work with PACK & SEND, we’ll even help you complete all the paperwork to make sure your parcel meets New Zealand’s unique customs regulations, too.
Customs documents are checked on the border as they enter New Zealand, so make sure these are completed accurately and in as much detail as possible, to avoid delivery delays or even having your shipments rejected.
For example, instead of stating ‘art’ or ‘paintings’, describe the contents in more detail, like ‘3x watercolour paintings in black plastic frames’.
