Nelson Shipping Services Ltd is a high quality supplier to shipping in Nelson and Picton.
We have provided a complete provedoring/chandlery service since the late 1990's, which covers all areas of provisioning including technical, engineering and bonded stores. We also provide freight forwarding services to both commercial and private customers in the Nelson/Tasman region, ensuring a personalised, professional, global reach for the region. Our company has built a solid reputation over many years doing work that others simply can't or won't. The simple answer to the "can you?" question is “It’s what we do!”
or TradeMe purchases
National & international
Nelson Shipping is part of New Zealand Shipping Ltd which began in the 1940's as B.J. McSherry Ltd.
We are one of the few companies that are both a customer and supplier to other businesses. This means we can freight your product and in turn give you preferential access to the domestic and international shipping market.
Personal Effects – moving home or TradeMe purchases!
Shopping on TradeMe can be more expensive than you think when you have to pay courier fees.We can often move your purchase around the country at a fraction of the price.
Moving home is one of the biggest things we all do in life and let's face it this can be a horrifically expensive and painful experience. Everywhere you turn you get a different story about the best way to do it and everyone who has moved has a story to tell - and not always a good one.
Most freight forwarders don't want to know about personal effects because it just doesn't fit into the easy, one size fits all, can be done over the phone, model. We love them!
Why, you ask?
Because when we move a household we meet new people and help them to have an easier transition to their new life. The down side is that we meet a lot of great people, some of whom are leaving town!
We customise our service to fit your needs; domestic or international, fast, premium or economical, self-pack or full service.
For example, many customers choose to pack their own goods and select a sailing option that may be a week slower than a fast service. This can save thousands of dollars.
We can also provide competitive insurance options. We speak plain English and provide all the information you need. We step you through the process to make sure you have the right information and products at the right time.
Our small team means you receive personal service from a person who knows you and what your needs are.
Our freight forwarding department provides a full range of freight services, both national and international.
As a family owned and operated boutique freight forwarder, we understand that no two customers and jobs are the same.
We are independent and not tied into any specific providers. This means we can provide the best value for money service for each and every customer.
