nzhs could just about have their own courier with the amount of inter island sales going on. it would almost be viable.
The only one I've got posted went to a shop. I went up with a couple of things to buy before I asked, and he was happy enough. He wanted to see FA license before handing over because he 'assumed' it was a firearm.
I'd heard it was a real run around to get it sorted, but was surprised at how smooth and easy the process was, so long as everything was filled out correctly
Have always used Fastways, have had one hassle. They seem to have upped their act as lately, they want a signature. Still think that the problems comes down to the individual drivers and their tracking system sometimes seems to be off the mark. Don't use the companies that state they don't carry firearms in their small print. I also always inform the driver on pickup that it's a firearm.
Have used Fastways and Post Haste for firearms and ammunition. Never had an issue.
I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.
I've always used Post Haste or NZ Couriers. Never had an issue. Fastways can be ok but all depends on your local contractor and if rural then that can leaded to a f@#k up. All other couriers use NZ Post as their rural contractors.
http://www.police.govt.nz/sites/defa...-plus-form.pdf the seller needs to fill in the form on page 4 and 5
then take it into his local cop shop where they will sight his license and fill in there part saying they have done so then they will fax it to the local arms officer who checks everything and approves it he then emails you a copy from his police email address saying your are approved to send the firearm he may also phone you also sends a copy of the approved form to both you and the buyer
pretty much all you do as a seller is provide the details required for the form sit back and relax and send the firearm when approval arrives from the AO
Thread bump... Fastway are trying to charge me $156 to send a rifle box + bolt box from Auckland to Christchurch. This sounds absurd...
Can anyone suggest anything?
Wtf. Wrap the rifle (bolt included) in bubble wrap and corrugated cardboard. Don't mention what it is. Take it to their depot in Penrose. I've done this several times and it costs $35
