Moving Your Car, Boats or Trailers to New Zealand

TransGlobal can organise transportation for your car, boat, trailer or other vehicles. Simply let us know the details and we will arrange for specialist transportation.

Please note that the New Zealand government seeks to limit the importation of older vehicles from overseas, which are designed to meet lower safety and emissions standards than newer vehicles. Used imported vehicles must therefore meet a number of international standards and this is determined during the entry certification process. A vehicle that was registered overseas is therefore not automatically able to be registered in New Zealand. If you have any questions, please let us know.

Women Power

New Zealand is a world-leader when it comes to equal rights for the sexes. It was the world’s first nation to introduce voting for women in 1893. It was also the first country in the world to have two consecutive female prime ministers and in 2006 become the first – and so far only – country to have its top positions of power filled by women when the Monarch Elizabeth II, Governor-General Dame Silvia Cartwright, Chief Justice Dame Sian Elias, Speaker of the House Margaret Wilson and Prime Minister Helen Clark all held office.
