Sea Freight is great for sending large bulky consignments overseas. PACK & SEND offers a wide range of shipping options with services available to the door in many of our major shipping destinations, and to the port as a cost effective alternative.
Shipping to the Door
Shipping to the Door can be a lower cost alternative to air freight but with the same convenience of a kerbside delivery at your international destination. The service consolidates your freight with other shippers to keep shipping costs to a minimum.
This service includes all documentation, both here in New Zealand and at your final destination, export and terminal handling charges, customs clearance, as well as the international sea freight and delivery to the door.
This shipping service excludes payment of customs duties and taxes which may occur at the final destination.
Shipping Excess Baggage
Within our Sea Freight to the Door service we have an excess baggage service, available for shipping personal effects and tools of trade to Australia, United Kingdom and listed EU countries.
The PACK & SEND excess baggage service is ideal for sending large or bulky unaccompanied personal effects such as extra luggage, boxes and bicycles that are too big or too expensive to send via air freight.
Each item sent must not exceed 30kgs but you can send as many items as you need.
Shipping Household Goods
Our household goods service has been designed to cater for small house/flat moves, student moves, office relocations, estate management or equipment relocation. Alongside our professional packaging service, shipping your belongings overseas, doesn’t get much easier.
Shipping dates and timeframes for the Sea Freight to the Door service are variable. Talk with your local PACK & SEND store for more information.
Shipping to the Port
With weekly sailings to over 250 destinations worldwide our Sea Freight to the Port service is an economical option when shipping large, bulky, heavy goods overseas.
This service includes all export documentation and charges, and Sea Freight to the Port.
As some countries or destinations within countries do not allow the door to door service, your goods will be shipped to a safe and secure, controlled depot at the destination port. Destination and terminal handling charges, customs clearance and delivery fees will be arranged and payable by you as the goods reach the destination port prior to you uplifting your goods.

Great Service from Pack & Send Hamilton City. I’m moving for a graduate position from Hamilton to Wellington.Trevor at the Hamilton branch offered so much help from enquiry to knocking down a great deal. He’s organised everything and made my trip a lot easier.Thank you so much,Helen
I worked with Trevor and Curt at Pack & Send Hamilton for a job moving my stuff abroad. They were extremely efficient time wise and the boxes are quite durable, as the items are fragile. Would certainly recommend for use in the future
Best service I’ve received for a very long time! Mark in Riccarton couldn’t have been any more professional, polite and efficient! An absolute pleasure to deal with and my package arrived safely. It had been packed to such a high standard. Thank you for your very kind help!
It's true you get what you pay for. Pack & Send is a little more expensive than other carriers, but very well worth it. I've sent some very fragile, valuable and HEAVY things around the place with these guys. Always the best packaging and handling, and incredibly fast.
Thank you very much to Trevor Roux from Pack&Send Hamilton City for getting all our goodies packed and shipped home to South Africa. Truly excellent and professional service ! Definitely highly recommend...
A big thank you to Rita at pack and send manukau for picking up the pieces after another shipping company couldn't pull through. highly recommended, if I ever have to ship overseas again I know who to call.
Fantastic service and help from Damon in Palmerston North - he went way beyond the 'call of duty' and did an amazing packing and transport of a granite table to Auckland.Fully recommend Damon and his service anytime!
Thank you for your great service! Trevor from the Hamilton Branch is amazing and very prompt and is onto it. He is a true professional and know his stuff. Fast service, prompt service and all done with excellent customer service. Thank you Trevor!

Outstanding service - only a week out from Christmas, easy parking, instant attention and extremely helpful! The cost to send was lower than my expectations, and the speed to get this done top notch. True example of a great customer experience, thanks Mark!
Brilliant service. My Dad left his Ipad at Auckland Airport. Pack N Send arranged everything. they picked it up and had it back to me in Christchurch the next day. Amazing, would highly recommend. Thanks Nick
Thank you Mark from Pack & Send Riccarton. I was really looked after; Great communication, efficient service and I was really listened to. So great to see a company doing what they say they do. Will definitely use your services again.
I received exceptional service from Trevor at Pack & Send Hamilton. He helped me ship a load of household items to Sydney, and he helped package up a number or artworks for storage. Thanks Trevor for such great service.
To Trevor at Pack and Send - Hamilton BranchThank you for such fantastic service! From enquiry through to delivery I received first class communication and help. I was sending a large box of belongings from NZ to the UK and Pack and Send couldn’t have been more helpful and friendly. Trevor helped me package my box for delivery and was very informative throughout the procedure. My box arrived in the UK in great condition and in a very quick time. Couldn’t recommend Pack and Send more!Thank you Trevor and all the best for the future �Milly
To Lindsay & Emily @ Pack & Send Dunedin.I have been living in China for some time now but still buy the odd thing from New Zealand and have it sent over. Last time I used another NZ wide postal service and the 10 day delivery ended up taking 3 months to arrive (with no tracking!). This time I remembered using Pack & Send from my days in Dunedin so emailed them to see if they could help. I am so glad I did.The service was exemplary and hassle free. I didn't have to worry about anything, Lindsay and Emily took care of all of it for me. And my package arrived, at my door in China, 3 days later!!!.Never have I experienced such wonderful, friendly and efficient service. Well done guys, you are the absolute best!
Thanks Pack and Send. The bonnet arrived safely and I have to say you packaged it very well. I highly recommend this company as I was worried about getting it from Dunedin to Auckland safely. Awesome job team with great communication and safe delivery. I will definitely use your company in the future
We used the Hamilton branch to send our parcel to Sydney Australia, the manager Trevor was awesome and we were very happy with the service, it arrived in OZ before we got back, but just a phone call to have it re-delivered the following day, love your service and would recommend it to all the family, thanks.
I used pack and send Hamilton to ship some items from NZ to England for moving back. A very good and easy experience would definitely recommend. Trevor was so friendly and helpful and arranged everything no problem. Amazing service
To Jeremy - Pack & Send, Takapuna Branch, Auckland.There I was sitting at home late this afternoon, when my phone rang and it was a courier (a very friendly lady), to say that she was close by and about to deliver the Chair and Footstool! It was such a lovely surprise, as I didn't expect delivery of it quite so soon.Jeremy, they both look fantastic in their designated room, and I especially have you to thank for the professionally wrapped, and speedy delivery, and I'm ever so grateful to you and your team at the Takapuna Branch, for making the whole process so easy and painless for me.I look forward to dealing with you again, because with the superb service you have provided, I now have every reason to always use Pack and Send, so thanks again!
A big thanks to Mark and the team at Pack & Send Riccarton. Very happy with my experience – the packaging, service and communication! Mark was wonderful as I explained I needed to send my treasured family items from Christchurch to my transplanted home in California. The items arrived pretty quickly, and in perfect condition – artwork, Royal Albert china sets, and old framed family photos! I heartily recommend Pack & Send Riccarton.Gene Wilkins
Blown away at these guys' packaging. I had a very fragile and large item sent last week.. it did take a bit longer to arrive than anticipated but when I saw how well it was wrapped I could see why. A foam padded box, bubblewrap, cardboard and cable ties. These guys sure know how to package stuff properly. AAA+++
Wow talk about service with a smile. These guys Mark and Andrew couldn't have tried any harder to help me and they undercut NZ Post hugely.They will be getting all of my repeat business in the future.And to top it all off they tell me that my package will be delivered in less than a week. In the past it has taken up to three weeks for a smaller parcel go go to the same address.Hats off to you Mark and your super cool staff.
I would like to publicly thank, and recommend Richard from Tauranga Pack and Send. I required an urgent shipment of furniture and personal effects from Whakatane to Sydney in a very short time-frame and Richard could not have been more accommodating or willing! He uplifted within a couple of days and when I went to his office in Tauranga the day after uplifting to complete all the paperwork, he had packaged all items so thoroughly and carefully. He also helped me complete the customs paperwork very efficiently and within about 20 minutes we were all done! He kept me informed of progress and I received my shipment at my home in Sydney exactly one week later! Richard is professional, efficient and he cares about what he does. I can't recommend him and his service highly enough! I am so grateful. Elizabeth Sullivan, Sydney
I've had the most amazing, efficient, friendly, prompt service from the team in Takapuna this week on more than one service/transportation. Connor has been a delight to deal with and a huge credit to the team. Will be raving to everyone about this place. Thank you again Takapuna branch.From a very happy customer who will be definitely be returning.
Just wanted to say a massive thanks to your team at Pack & Send East Tamaki, you guys were absolutely amazing in reuniting an Ipad left in a taxi in Paris with a client here in New Zealand. She is one extremely happy customer. Lorraine - House of Travel Botany Junction
