Does anyone know how much it would cost to ship a desktop computer from New Zealand to Canada?

Question by Jennifer: Does anyone know how much it would cost to ship a desktop computer from New Zealand to Canada?
I’m moving and short of money, otherwise I’d just buy a laptop. But not having a spare $ 2k sitting around, we figured it would be cheaper to mail the desk top. It’s a standard one – one tower and keyboard with a flat screen, and would be packaged in two boxes, like it was shipped to us originally.

Weight, distance and shipping method are the main factors that determine cost. We don’t know any of those.

You should weight all of the components, as they would be packed – as well as you can.
Then call some companies that do international shipping from NZ.

With the information about those weights and a destination in Canada, they are in the best position to provide an estimate for different methods of shipping, and a transit time.

Good luck.
