    Default Come with nothing - Here's a houseful of stuff already in NZ !

    Want to move to NZ and have everything you need when you get here?

    G'day everyone,

    My name is Rick (rikdownunda). I'm an Aussie and have lived here in NZ (South Island) for over 7yrs. 5yrs in Hokitika, 2 plus years in Timaru. Timaru is the perfect balance between the rural South Island living and all the facilities of a city. Research Timaru.

    We've had our fun, now we're moving back to Australia in early Nov 2018. Time for me to settle down and get superannuation for retirement.

    As you guys would be aware, moving countries is very expensive and a logistical nightmare. We've decided to get rid of everything we own in NZ and start from scratch in Australia. Even if we have to live out of tents for a while.

    I have a whole house of furniture I'm essentially GIVING AWAY ! Not quite, I'd like $1000.00 (NZ) for it. I could flog it all off on Trademe for more than that but I'd like to give someone else the opportunity of getting it all.

    It's not great quality stuff but it's functional. We're a family of 5. Wife and me, three children. Hell, we could possibly arrange for you to move into this rental we're in ! 223 North St, West End, Timaru 7910. $330p/w. Three bedrooms.

    This reads like a most generous offer. Forum members should remember that ENZ isn't responsible for the content of the post, so any arrangements you make are private between you and the poster - you need to check things out for yourselves.

    Thanks JandM.
    I assure you this is a genuine and negotiable offer. If you leave out the vehicles, the house full of furniture could be a great opportunity for low budget movers. I'd love to know that I've been able to help someone and it helps me. It's not the financial aspect that helps me but not needing to get rid of everything individually. It's a win/win.

    I can prove my integrity for anyone interested. I worked 15yrs for Centrelink in Australia and more recently I was manager for 5yrs with Inland Revenue. Site Manager for the West Coast based in Greymouth and Site Manager for South Canterbury based in Timaru.
    I was then Area Manager for South Canterbury and Dunedin with Statistics NZ.
    I am currently a Cook at Glenwood Aged Care Facility Timaru.
    All these changes towards my end goal of getting back to Australia in Nov 2018.

    If I can't find someone who will benefit from my offer I will be contacting my friends at Family Support to take everything. I have donated a lot to them through my networks with Oranga Tamariki.

    Thanks for the tip on how to get PM working.

    Cheers,
    Rick Fehlberg
