    NZ Post up to frks, 2 month delay and told me that they won't deliver to WLG

    These useless cnts are the worse I have seen in NZ in 20 years. Never dealt with any organisation this useless and politically fked up.
    First advised me that my reloading gear and bipod needed a permit after 3 weeks of chasing it with customs.
    Then 2 month after the customs released, I called everyweek to see where the fk they are upto with delivering my parcel to Wellington.
    Got a phone call today saying that it has been sitting at customs for collection as NZ post would not deliver any firearms related items in their network.
    I paid international express to get the parcel delivered to Wellington, now have to get someone to pick up and deliver to another courier service to get down to WLG.

    How fkn ridiculous is that !!!
    I ask them for a refund of my courier cost, they said " I'm really sorry, but Unfortunately ......"

    I just want o rant about it.
    Anyone else had the same experience?

    And then they sneer at us when we say we're vilified and victimised for the March 15 police failure.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    How would the NZ Post employees feel when they are just going through the process of what they have been trained to do and say on the phone to the customers when they know it's not going anywhere for the customer and no result will be given for 2 month. I called 10 times at least and spoke to the same employees at least 3 times. They sounded like trained robots just has the same reply: " I will send an enquiry through and expect to get a reply from them asap". "I understand your frustration, but unfortunately......."

    Was listening to a submitter yesterday afternoon. He mentioned the example of needing to get a leaf spring made for a shotgun.

    Under the new laws, whoever he gets to do that would need to apply to the commissioner of police.

    I guess my lathe and mill will have to be used for less "dangerous" activities going forward

    Or you could make a fortune making replica parts that just happen to also work.

    theres your mistake right there, dont let them off the phone till you know exactly whats happening
    If they dont know ask to speak to someone in charge
    repeat the process till you get a result.

    all they want is to be payed a wage and for you to stop bothering them

    Point out to them that this is a breach of the Consumer rights. They are being paid to provide a service. If that service is NOT being performed due to their decision and factors within their control, then you are legally entitled to a refund for the service that was not provided.....
