Transporting vehiclesSo you've bought your dream car. Only trouble is it's 700km away. How do you get it home?
Using a car transporter can be a quick and stress-free way of getting your new car. We recommend HaulPlus who operate a nationwide delivery network. These guys are also able to transport your boat, bike, caravan, trailer, parts and machinery purchases. It can be surprisingly cost effective to use a transporter, and definitely worth getting a free quote.
Fly & Drive
If time isn't a constraint, the easiest option may be to find a cheap fare and fly to the nearest airport, getting the owner to meet you. Then just drive home. If you book a week or more out you can get sharp fares on the Air NZ, Pacific Blue or Jetstar websites.
Check if the seller will meet you halfway. Traders between Wellington and Auckland will often meet at Turangi to pass the bank cheque across and sign the paperwork. All you need is a friend to give you a ride there.
