Vintage Cars Workshop and Spares to New Zealand?

Apr 01. 2010

Customer Question:
Will there be any problem taking a 25 litre can of Racing Motor Oil (sealed) loaded in a container? And, can we take varnished wooden Car Ramps for the Roll-on/Roll-off?

Burke Bros Answer:
No problem. Technically, Customs could charge duty and GST (Goods and Services Tax) on this but we couldn’t say definitely that they would or would not. No problem with the Car Ramps.

Customer Question:
Can you take empty Butane Gas Cylinders in a Motor Home via Ro/Ro (Roll-on/Roll-off)

Burke Bros Answer:
No problem, but we suggest they be purged (more from an insurance point of view).
It is not necessarily a good thing to leave loose items in vehicles sent RoRo. A year or two back we had a campervan from the UK in which the client had left all the normal things you would find in one and he maintained that some things were not there when he took delivery. We believe that the RoRo shipping people do advise shippers not to leave loose items in vehicles.
