Shipped our vehicle from Brisbane to Auckland New Zealand. The process was a total breeze.
The whole team was fantastic to deal with. Prompt communication, forwarded all necessary information and very pleasant to deal with. Answered all of our questions. Compliance was pre-paid through Willship International and was the best decision we made.
Thank you to the Willship team.
They looked after me and kept me up to date on both sides of the Tasman. Every person I spoke to was courteous and happy and that includes the pick of and delivery guys.
