    FASTWAY COURIERS

    A sports retailer in Auckland was telling me today that his local Fastway agent want's him to pay a RD delivery fee if there isn't a Fastway depot in the customers town. This isn't for firearms. Told him easy, change your Courier Co. Anyone else come across this.

    yip, I use NZ Couriers when that's the case.
    Fastways don't have the best ratings in the courier business unfortunately.

    Fastway Couriers, decide who is rural and who is not, even non rural addresses get classified as rural by FC.
    Stopped using FC long ago for the above reason.
    Other couriers are usually cheaper, faster and friendlier too..

    Never had any problems with Post Haste in Nelson regarding firearms.

    PBT ( Peter Baker Transport ) do the same - they check your address in Google maps and then dictate whether you are rural or urban.

    I have a farmlet , surrounded by town on 4 sides but apparently I am rural to them. Dont use them at all now - wankers.

    Mainfreight is pretty good here in Taranaki , dunno about elsewhere

    NZ Post are bloody good and they have an 'Address Finder' that makes it all easy, except to FC with their franchise/ profit mentality at all costs, which gets used to benefit them and only them.

    The only problem with NZ Post is their little red book which states they don't take firearms or firearm parts etc, ok until something goes missing and you have to claim.

    And when you actually read what you can and cant send with NZ Post, you pretty much cant send F all. If its limited or collectable or anything firearms related, even including cast lead projectiles, they have kittens and refuse to send it. Had a postie go ape shit cause the box contained cast lead 38 proj. No cases or anything else, it was just lead shaped as projectiles. But if they were sinkers or ingots it would have been fine.

    They even refused to send a Collectable challenge coin because it was a "collectable" item. Which is on their prohibited list.

    They're called "Slowways" down here, they seem to get confused when they leave the city and your stuff goes all over the place. Quite interesting reading the tracking information for your goodies. Lucky they don't charge by the mile, oops Km!
