    How much to get a 20ft container from CHCH to Tauranga?

    Thinking about buying a container workshop from TM in an hour any idea how much it would cost to ship up here?

    off top of head you looking at $50 per truck movement eg pick up....drop at wharf...pick up from wharf...drop at your place plus whatever they will charge per km to carry it and then there is the shipping to carry it from chch ...you could go rail and hope it doesnt fall off the wharf at picton or get lost or blocked by a slip...... cant see you getting any change from 2k
    ring a freight company ASAP they will KNOW

    Domestic shipping (on actual ships) is also an option. Ask these guys: http://www.pinnaclelogistics.co.nz/s...stal-shipping/

    Got quoted around 2.5k from several trucking firms to pick up a container in chch and move it down to kurow....yea nah, I would have rather wheelbarrowed all the container contents down there myself than pay that much

    Nowhere gives actual estimates for shipping containers or is open to answer calls. I think i'd buy it if i knew the transport cost was below $2.5K.
    grrr should have done my homework earlier.

    Was a fully fitted out, insulated workshop. Royal wolf reckon approximately $2.5-3k, kiwirail being more expensive than coastal shipping.

    spacewise at shulpur point do fit outs and seacontainers at the mount, but if you want one fitted out I could help you out.

    could potentially fit one out for you for the cost of the freight from the south island.
