    shipping from Canada

    I have found a source for a new production replacement quarter panel for my landcruiser. The panel itself is reasonably priced ($275CAD) but shipping quotes I have been given are prohibitive ($1000-1100CAD).'



    Is anyone aware of a cheaper way to ship a bulky (in 2 dimensions) but relatively light item from Canada to New Zealand? With no particular rush.

    Checked luggage? Fly over and get it for that price, have a holiday while there.

    Getting 2 panels, one for me, one for a friend, works out at about 775 CAD each which is less than the price of a single new production Toyota panel, without shipping, from Japan. But if I could cut the shipping costs it would be nice.

    try a machinery importer or tractor dealer they might be able to bring them over when they get next load of gear over.

    When I moved back home from Canada I used a company called Seven Seas Worldwide. I can't remember what it cost me, but it could be worth getting a quote. I had 4 quite large boxes sent by boat which took quite a while to turn up but it seemed a reasonable price at the time and was reasonably hassle free.

    Have used a UK based company to ship our gear back from Perth, WA 3 years ago.
    Local office packed a 40' container, including a Suzi Grand Vitara.
    They chocked the wheels but didn't tie it down.
    The ship hit a bad patch of seas crossing the Tasman - covered (supposedly by insurance)
    The SUV and quite a few of the cases (packed by the agents), were quite badly damaged.
    By the time we finished arguing with Lloyds Shipping Insurance, cost us NZ$7K to fix the stuff they wouldn't pay for - including damage to other boxes in the container.
    Once bitten - etc,

    get on the phone and call the likes of Mainfreight , Toll , or any of the freight forwarders in the yellow pages.
