Ship Your Car to New Zealand

Shipping cars, motorcycles, and boats from the US to New Zealand requires a shipper with experience. During the last decade, West Coast Shipping has specialized in shipping priceless classic cars, muscle cars, pick up trucks and SUVs for customers in New Zealand. We have locations in both California and New Jersey.

We work with customers to collect their vehicles from anywhere in the USA, load into a container, and ship to any port in New Zealand. We ship cars to the ports of Auckland, Nelson, Dunedin, Lyttelton and Wellington. Door to door service is also offered.

Car Shipping Cost to New Zealand

Freight charges for shipping cars from the USA to New Zealand depends on the location of the vehicle in the USA, and the port in New Zealand you are shipping to. The closer a car is located to California or New Jersey, the less expensive it will be to pickup your vehicle using an enclosed or open transporter. You can save up to 50% on freight by shipping your vehicle from the port of Oakland in California in a consolidated container to the port of Auckland/Tauranga in New Zealand. If you are shipping more than 2 vehicles, you can ship in a dedicated 40 or 45ft container. California to New Zealand on a direct route takes around 22 to 27 days. There is also a cheaper method available on a non-direct route which takes around 38 days.

NEW ZEALAND CAR IMPORT TAX & DUTY

When importing a car into New Zealand do not forget to take the import duties and VAT into the total cost. As of 2016, the duty is 10% and the VAT is 15%. See the list of approved cars for import to New Zealand.

Shipping Options

CONTAINER

By using a container for shipping, we can load anywhere from 1 to 6 cars (depending on size), the vehicles can either run and drive, or be project cars. We offer consolidation when shipping to the port, saving you money by shipping your vehicles along with other cars in the same container. When shipping high-value vehicles, we can load them in their own dedicated 20ft or 40ft containers.

RORO

Shipping via Roll-on/Roll-off is another option when shipping cars overseas. However, unlike with containarized car shipping, you cannot ship anything inside of your vehicle, and the car be in run and drive condition to be able to drive on and off the ship. The ports which support RoRo vary widely, and so do the rates.

AIRPLANE

If you require your vehicle overseas as quickly as possible, we recommend shipping the car via Air-Freight service. Compared to lengthy shipping times and possible port delays when shipping in a container or via RoRo, shipping your car by Air is the quickest shipping options. Transit time is estimated at around 3 to 10 days, depending on the documentation and customs requirements.

Motorcycle Shipping Overseas
How Motorcycles Are Shipped Overseas

Motorcycles are a popular import from the US, and most customers use a container. You can fit up to 8 motorcycles in a 20ft container and up to 16 in a 40ft container. They are securely strapped and braced. This makes it the perfect solution for wholesale buyers and dealers. Use the shipping calculator on this page to get a quote, or contact us.

Another option is shipping your motorcycle via air freight to any international airport. It's a more expensive option, and it requires a custom crate to be built around the bike. However, air freight will minimize transit time.
