Bonded Stores, Auckland?

We have the spud supply situation sorted ...however....

Does anyone know of a customs agent in the Auckland area who can/is willing to supply small quantities ( a dozen bottles or less) of duty free spirits to yachts.

Last time, 12 years ago, I found one in Tauranga who considered no order too small. Hopefully there is one servicing yachts in Auk.

TIA

Re: Bonded Stores, Auckland?

Check the yellow pages for providores. Maybe Google it. Mostly they don't want to be bothered with yachts anymore, but something may turn up. There was a place, a long time ago, in Kerikeri that would sell you duty-free.

Good luck with it.

Re: Bonded Stores, Auckland?

Thanks Ann but I think I am fresh out of luck.....

Outports may welcome the business but it seems that is not the case in Auckland which seems fair due to distances involved etc...maybe a better chance if the boat was in Westhaven.

Not looking for bucket loads and in the scheme of things the $$$s involved are neither here nor there... only need a bit for medicinal purposes and for keeping up moral.

Not looking to arrive over there with any.... quality Caribbean rums in Chile are about $8 a bottle.
