Cargo or air/sea freight

Forums: 

Trying to send my kayak from Malaysia to Christchurch by cargo as jetstar say their compartments are too small.

Anyone got any experience doing this?

I sea freighted a new kayak from Port Klang Malaysia to Auckland using Sneddons (sneddens.co.nz) a couple of years ago. The shipping cost was $75 USD at the time. Port charges and custom clearance costs were about $350 NZD. If you state the value of the boat is less than $400 or it might be $300 now GST shouldn't apply. The process took about a month.
