just so you know that if the item you are importing in NZ is worth over NZD$400, customs in NZ will charge you GST on the total cost of the item providing they intercept the parcel. so it's luck of the draw when importing expensive items into NZ. some have to pay GST to customs, some don't if they get lucky.
