Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

Or get one of these then resell it when done.  https://www.1-day.co.nz/products/AFIDEN2QD 

I picked one of this model up in March with that intent but decided to keep it.
