Make sure that you phone your insurance company, and get it covered BEFORE it is picked up.
Many first-time buyers forget to do this.
Post-Earthquake Freight and Rate Changes|
Following the recent earthquakes, you will all be aware that our transport
infrastructures have sustained major damage nationwide which will impact
freighting movements for the foreseeable future. There will be major
implications, particularly in the South Island, on both the timeliness and
cost of freight deliveries.
While recovery has started, there are still major diversions in place due to
the damage caused to SH1 south of Blenheim. The Lewis pass is the main
detour route until SH1 is rectified. This detour unfortunately causes an
unavoidable 143 additional kilometres to the run from Picton / Blenheim to
Christchurch. The alternative route via Arthurs pass should the Lewis pass
be closed, means an additional 294 kilometres.
With such a drastic change to our routes for destinations south of Blenheim
we regret that we are unable to maintain our current timeframes and rates.
We need to adjust our rates while the detours are in place to recover our
additional costs. We'd also ask for your patience and understanding as we
work through these trying times.
