We have sent furniture all over the country including the South Island, to Australia, and to the Pacific.
These freight prices are a guide only - ask us for a firm quote when ordering. Carriers will offer different rates depending on how busy they are, or if they have another delivery nearby. Any distance off the main route will add a per km cost.
There are ways to cut costs on freight.
If you live in a remote area, do you know someone who lives in town who could take delivery, and you could take it from there? Most firms charge extra per km each way for distance off the main route.
Can you reassemble? Normally our furniture goes out fully assembled, but some things can be sent in parts,and volume can be reduced substantially if you are able to reassemble it yourself. For example, a six-seater table made with mortise and tenon joints for the legs would be 2 cubic metres; the same table made with detachable legs would be .65 of a cube.
And of course the cheapest option is to collect in your own wagon, trailer, or truck.
