    Ffs

    Well you learn something everyday & saying that maybe in my advanced years I should have learnt to keep my mouth shut

    I went into the local postshop to send my Leupy scope away to the States for repair,

    So I tied up all my shit at work & rock on down to send me scope away spend 5+mins waiting in the cue with all the other plebs ( now I remember why I don't bank with Kiwibank)

    finally get to the counter & put my brown paper wrapped box on the scales & the old duck pases me a small customs tag & I naively ask which box tio tick as its a warranty claim

    Whats it's value she asks, about 2 odd grand

    Q - ohh, What is it ?

    A- scope

    Q- a what ?

    A-a rifle scope (Oops shouldn't have said that)

    No we can't take that

    Aye! Don't give me that horse shit' I reply & I explain that it only goes on top of the bloody thing & is basically a bit of glass & alloy

    I'll have to ring someone to confirm, So she rings HO & as soon as she mentions the dreaded word "rifle" it's a no go, NZ POST will not handle anything to do with rifles


    So I say how about we call it a telescope/spotting scope, well that do ?

    Yes that would be OK, but she won't take it as she knows what it is

    So that was a farken waste of 20min's that I could of been working & now I have to go back today
    Shoot it, root it & then BBQ it !!!

    As with the uninformed, the less you say the better off you are. Its a real bastard when shit like that happens cause you feel like wrappong it around their head, but you just cant argue with them. I hope you have come up with more "Accurate" description this time

    Hence when I send projectiles through the post and they ask why it weighs so much, I say its "lead sinkers for fishing".

    We pretty much stopped exporting last year due to this as NZ Post was the only affordable shipping option for firearms parts.
    The actual NZPost policy is that sights are allowed but all other parts arent. The policy is in writing somewhere as it was shown to me. The other issue most people arent aware of is that you need an export licence for scopes from MFAT. We have had scopes si tin NZ customs on the way out of the country for over a month unknown to us waiting for a permit to export.

    I guess the answer is how do others get on as your not the first to send a scope back for warranty.
    What about UPS or DHL etc? $$$$$?

    Right went to a different Post Shop this morning which seemed to have much better service & sent my "optical spotting scope" away so hopefully it gets there

    Had a bit of a prick of a morning, the battery on my work wagon clapped out & I dropped my work radio in the toilet ( don't ask ) where I'm working

    That would almost guarantee it getting "lost" in the post

    Why wouldn't you just take it into a retailer and have them send it? Doesn't have to have been brought in NZ to get dealt with by them and then NZ Asia.

    Yeah took it into the local H&F where I brought it ( the first time I sent it away they did it for me & didn't charge me ) but this time the boss man said that they would sting me the $$$ so I might as well take it to the Post Shop myself, He wrapped it & wrote the addy on it for me though & I thought if I sent it at least I know its been sent & won't be sitting on a counter in the shop for a week before some one gets around to doing it

    & I defiantly wouldn't send it through NZ Asia ( as Veit said ) you will be waiting months for them to even ship it

    I've got a pair of Binos with them currently. My retailer reckons most stuff in the past is around a month to six weeks returned.
