stink bug  We have just been informed of some changes with MPI / Quarantine in New Zealand. All containers from the USA effectively immediately cannot go direct to residence because of the risk of the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug. Containers will need to be offloaded into a warehouse for quarantine inspection before the contents are delivered by moving van to the residence.

As from 1st June 2015 all containers from anywhere in the world shipping to New Zealand  will need to go via a warehouse and unloaded for quarantine clearance, so no containers direct to residence.

 Because of the high risk of this specific insect MPI/Quarantine decided not to have a phase in period for the USA like the rest of the world.

As items will be unloaded from the container before delivery, it is very important everything is not only well packed but marked with piece number and your name.
