We have just taken possession of our new Swift caravan and couldn't be happier with the process and professionalism that Paul has shown. His knowledge of caravans and his commitment to strong communication makes the process a breeze. Highly recommended!

Paul: Lisa & Craig had chosen a 2017 Swift Expression 626 6-berth caravan for their family of four giving them heaps of space while still having a fixed bed and a full end bathroom. Lisa & Craig are lovely people and a breeze to work with and they knew exactly what they wanted. It was my task to get it for them. Thank you again for your trust and business.
We contacted Paul with a preferred make and model of a new caravan, Paul's communication and organisational skills were exceptional through out the entire process, it has been much appreciated !!

Paul: Thank you Julie & Rob for the nice words. It was a pleasure working with you and although we never met it proofs again that I'm able to assist customers that live on the South Island. For sure you will have many great moments in your 2017 Sterling Eccles 580, thanks again!
I contracted Paul to source/import a 2017 model caravan of my choice handling all details,documentation,importat­ion etc. I was overseas working during this time so a degree of trust was required. Paul carried out the process in a professional and friendly manner, end result is I now have a new caravan at a price I couldn't have achieved on my own. I recommend Paul to other prospective buyers

Paul: When Barbara & Richard visited my caravan import company we soon figured out that a new caravan was their preferred choice, the brand and model was decided soon after. This friendly couple were easy to work with and although Richard was most of the time overseas we kept in contact by emails. Enjoy your caravan!
We used Paul to import our new Swift caravan. He made it real easy and kept us up to date and informed all the way. He organised with the UK team some extras that we requested and sought the best deals. Good job.

Paul: Gillian & Paul wanted a high quality single axle transverse island bed caravan with bathroom in the middle. They knew exactly the brand and model and a 2017 Sterling Elite 560 was their choice. They also needed a motor mover, water tanks and deep cycle battery which was ordered for them in the UK to save more money for them. You guys been very good to work with and I hope you will have many great trips in this fantastic caravan. Regards Paul
We purchased a new Swift Expression 626 using Paul's help. All of our dealings with Paul were excellent and he is a straight up honest guy who answered all our queries in a prompt and efficient manner. We have no hesitation in recommending Paul to others who want to buy a used or new caravan.

Paul: Back in February Sonya & Tim bought this brand new caravan (VAT excluded !) via me and I helped them to ship it to NZ. After installing a few extra bits to help their grand children use their electronic gear in the caravan they collected it and drove off to new adventures. I hope you will have many memorable moments with your family. Regards Paul
We are very pleased that we chose Paul to import our new Elddis Avante 554. We are delighted with the caravan and with the friendly, supportive and professional service provided. Paul took us seamlessly through what might have otherwise been a slightly stressful process if we had done it on our own. The caravan was delivered in perfect condition upgraded to NZ requirements all at what we felt was a very fair price. Thank you Paul. Highly recommended!

Paul: Jan and Tim had decided that a new caravan was the way to go but prices elsewhere were much higher. They also knew what they wanted and they used me to do the purchase (in their names and VAT excluded), shipping, import and compliance to NZ standards. All ready for collection as part of my services. Thank you so much for your trust and business, much appreciated! Regards Paul
We have just imported a Bailey Senator through Paul. He was absolutely fantastic to deal with especially this was our first time. He always gave prompt honest replies to our emails. We would like to do it all again sometime and would definitely get Paul to import for us. Thanks again and see you in the future

Paul: For this lovely couple, Wendy & Shane, I imported a caravan I purchased in their name at their requirements and they paid exactly what it would have cost me. When arrived in Auckland I organized the certifications for gas, electrics, WOF and registration at cost. When all ready they drove in, hooked it on and drove off. Again a happy couple that are now looking at buying their second caravan! Regards Paul
Paul has an amazing wealth of knowledge about caravans & importing them from the UK. We would highly recommend Paul, he made the process easy & we were kept infomred all the way through from selecting our caravan in the UK to picking it up from his yard. Paul also spent some time taking us through the "in's" & "out's" with regards to the caravan and how everything worked. This was very benefitial and made our first trip away alot less stressful. Thanks again Paul we love our new Bayliey caravan.

Paul: Wendy & Carl choose a Bailey Senator Indiana which been brought in and was made compliant at my facility in Silverdale. Our team took all work out their hands and they only had to drive off with their new pride and joy. I like to thank them for their trust and business.
Getting Paul to organise the importing of our 2007 Burstner was the best choice we made. Everything was left to Paul and he kept us up to date through the process. It was simple matter of picking up the caravan from Paul and everything was done. Friends of our who did the process themselves found it a nightmare. Can't recommend Paul's services enough. Craig & Maree

Paul: Thank you Maree & Craig for your feedback, much appreciated. We have the contacts, contracts and expertise to finish an import job from begin till end and keeping cost down for you, the customer. Sorry to hear your friends had not the same experience. Regards Paul
The best thing I have done was calling Paul. My brand new Caravan was delivered ready for me to leave directly from Paul's office with all certificates in place. Value for money and peace of mind is a under statement.Thank you once again for getting our van sorted and if anybody is not sure please tell them to contact me for assurance.

Paul: Thank you so much Vanessa & Andre for your business and trust. It was my pleasure to source, import and made compliant (to NZ standards) the Bailey Pegasus Verona you had chosen. Regards Paul
Anyone who likes old-fashioned service with a smile and customer care, you'll like doing business with Paul, and you'll keep a fatter wallet while finding a high quality caravan. We bought a 2005 Bessacar Cameo in near new condition at great savings. We recommend Paul without hesitation. He goes the extra mile with a smile not a smirk! Yes. Satisfied.
berussell (29 29 positive feedback)  Mon 28 Nov
Paul: Gail & Gene bought this awesome Bessacarr Cameo 625GL and later on we supplied double motor movers as well. Gene is going to install these himself. Very friendly people, easy to deal with and great communicators. Thank you again. Regards Paul
We recently imported a caravan through Paul and all promises were followed to the letter. We can't speak highly enough of him for the very efficient and informed transaction. Thanks Paul

Paul: For Barbara & John we imported a brand new 2016 Elddis Avante 550 with an island bed saving them quite a few $$. Also installed a solar panel and self-containment. Thank you again for your business. Regards Paul
While searching for our perfect caravan, we came accross Pauls vans on Trade Me. We visited his yard and discussed our requirements with him. Paul was very helpful through the decision making process on which van would be rght for our family. We decided to import a van through Paul. He was able to locate the perfect van for us and kept us informed throughout the entire process. Paul is honest and very knowledgable. We highly reccommend his service. Brendon and Rebecca.

Paul: For Rebecca and Brendon we sourced that specific caravan they wanted and helped them to ship and import, done all compliance work in Silverdale and for them it was only a matter of collecting so they could enjoy their new home from home. Thank you for your business. Regards Paul
Do you have a yard where we could come and look to see what you have in stock ??

Paul sold us a fantastic caravan. He is incredibly helpful and honest. Would highly recommend. :)

Paul: Jemma & Gareth bought a 2008 Swift Charisma 610 island bed that they are using as temporarily living space while building their dream house for their family. It was a pleasure dealing with them.
We approached Paul to import a caravan for us because we were impressed with his knowledge of the industry. When we decided on a 2013 model Paul offered to import for approx. the same cost a 2016 Bailey Orion 430/4 caravan,with the fixed bed and rear bathroom we wanted. He took over the whole project to our complete satisfaction, sending regular photographs and updates and took care of all the requirements on arrival. So thrilled with the caravan and the service given. Grateful thanks Paul.

Paul: This was the first time we imported a brand new UK caravan into NZ on request this couple. I was able to convince them to purchase a brand new caravan for the same price of a local 2013/14 caravan, this saved them almost $ 8000 with a NZ new. This process is painless and without hidden costs as all invoices were in their name or open to view.
we bought our caravan from Paul about 18 months ago. His pricing and quality were excellent in fact second to none. It's not all about the price though, and in the last 18 months I have contacted Paul for information that is almost impossible to source even on the world wide web. He has been an invaluable source of info and he is so easy to deal with. Thanks Paul your after sales support is amazing. I would have no hesitation in using Paul should I wish to purchase an other van in the future.

Paul: End 2014 George bought a 2009 Ace Statesman twin axle with island bed with quad movers from me and he is still enjoying this luxurious caravan today. We also helped him to get in contact with VantageRv in Silverdale for an after market Solar system. It was a pleasure to deal with him. Regards Paul
We purchased our Abbey caravan from Paul, and have been utterly STOKED ever since. No more tents for us, whoop whoop!!! :) Paul has given us such fantastic after-sales service, help and advice - he has gone above and beyond. We have recommended him to lots of friends and family because he knows his stuff, and really looks after his customers. THANK YOU Paul!
ziggler (540 540 positive feedback)  Wed 06 Apr
Paul: Angela and Phil knew from day one what they wanted, a good caravan for their family to enjoy the outdoors, no tenting with kids for them anymore but a fixed bed for the adults and a comfy bed for the youngsters, that's the way to go! Cheers Paul
Excellent Trader - Cannot Fault the Caravan, which is in great condition and brilliant value - Paul gave great service throughout the purchase process.
typhoont (64 64 positive feedback) Address Verified Dec 2019  Wed 06 Apr
Paul: Almost a year ago this couple bought a very nice, 2010 Bailey Olympus 624 which we delivered for them at their house and explained the working of the van on the spot! Ron came back a few months later to buy a good set of wheel locks to protect their fabulous caravan. Cheers Paul
Had a great experience dealing with Paul. In my case I knew quite specifically what model I was after and Paul worked very closely with me looking at the available options. Paul was always easily contactable and assisted me even further when I requested a motor mover to be fitted in the UK before shipment. All round was a fantastic experience, and still thoroughly enjoying the caravan today. Would certainly go back to Paul for my next one.

Paul: For Darren we brought in a 2006 Bailey Senator Louisiana with island bed. Darren wanted specific this caravan and it took a few weeks to find the right one that was also good and damp free. Darren was easy to deal with and I appreciated his business. regards Paul
