    DHL

    So brought car parts from Osaka Japan at 10pm Tuesday night, was picked up at 15:03 yesterday in Osaka, has cleared customs in Auckland and on way to Napier depot.
    DHL have said I should have at the end of the day today. If not then by 9.30 am Friday
    That must be the bloody fastest international shipping I have had. Good on ya DHL

    Yup I sent something from California to Auckland that got there faster than package from Auckland to nelson.

    Can get air craft bits from Paris to Auckland in under 24 hours IF everyone does their job properly

    Not only is some internation shipping crazy fast, but how can a company in the UK sell me something for $7 with free shipping to a rural address, yet something from Auckland costs $6 just for rural shipping (a 1-1.5 hour drive).

    I had a parcel from Reloaders is Auckland arrive less than 12hrs after ordering once, was very impressed.

    +Indeed. There is a company on Tardme that sells trailer tie down points and while his rices are a bit rich for what I was going to do with them, shipping from Britian was cheaper than I can send it across town.

    Looking at Aliexpress the other day and I found this..

    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/The-...103.0.0.Prx6Nc

    And this includes free shipping for $18950 US ($26,054 NZ) While I dont want a tractor, especially one I cannot get parts for, shipping would be more that that surely...

    Or a 6 ton digger for less than $900NZ freight
