RV’s & Motorhomes Shipping FAQs
Here are answers to the most common questions we get asked about recreational vehicle shipping services
I wish to purchase a Motorhome overseas, can you assist from NZ to ship back when I have finished my holiday?
Yes – we have an extensive network of agents overseas, simply let us know where you plan to end your holiday, and we can give you our local contact in this area. FPS will communicate with the overseas party, so you simply need to hand over the unit and we take care of the rest.
Do Motorhomes have registration/title documents also? And are these needed for export?
Yes – motorhomes and RVs do have titles and registration paperwork. The originals will need to be provided at the origin, so the export formalities can be completed.
Can I leave Personal effects in my Motorhome?
No – shipping lines will not accept Motorhomes and RVs with Personal belongings inside, as the vehicles travel unlocked.
Where can I find out information on New Zealand road compliance?
Visit the New Zealand Transport Agency.
Can I have additional items inside my motorhome when shipping in a container?
Yes – additional items can be loaded inside the caravan prior to loading in a container, however, paperwork must accompany the documents for the motorhome, confirming what is inside and what these goods are worth, as all items arriving into NZ must be declared to NZ Customs.
Do I pay GST on Motorhomes and RVs purchased overseas?
Yes – GST is applicable on all imports, with the exception of personal effects, at a rate of 15% of the total value of the unit, plus freight, plus insurance, plus Duty.
