Transit Times for Shipping to New Zealand

Exclusive Use Container / Full Container Load (FCL)

If you are shipping your furniture and household effects in a sole use container, the container will arrive at your residence in the UK and then be go straight to the port to be loaded onto a vessel. The sailing time from the UK to New Zealand is approximately 7-8 weeks. Please allow 2 weeks at destination for customs clearance and delivery. The overall transit time is therefore approximately  between 8 – 10 weeks door to door.

Shared Container Service

A shared container or groupage service is a good option if you are shipping small volumes or if you are looking for a more economical way to ship your household items. The approximate transit time for a shared container service to New Zealand is approximately between 10 and 14 weeks depending on the destination in New Zealand.
