    Default Antique Furniture

    Hello,

    We have an antique victorian suite of two chairs and a settee, we are suspicious of these containing straw but are not certain of this. We don't wish to undo the upholstery to check as this would make them unsellable should we need to, but we would really like to bring them out to NZ with us. Has any body any experience of doing such a thing or advice as to how they would be received at customs. Has anyone had to have anything fumigated - if so at what cost?

    We would also like to know peoples experiences of transit times when the have shared containers from the UK.

    We appreciate any help with this,

    Cheers, Zac and Tiff

    Sorry, cannot help you with your actual problem, however it is not customs but MAF with biosecurity here. Based on this website http://www.biosecurity.govt.nz/regs/...plant-products I take it you have to get directly in contact with them.

    Thanks for your advice, we have shot off an email to MAF. Worst case senario will have fuel for the wood burner till we leave in 42 days!
