Importing Adult Store Items

Several factors must be taken into account when importing adult store items to New Zealand. Import regulations and restrictions can vary significantly from country to country, making thorough research essential before placing any orders.

Many items operate on batteries, which are classified as dangerous goods in the shipping industry. It’s best to ship these items without batteries unless your supplier can provide the correct paperwork for international shipping.

Having a reliable and efficient customs broker is crucial to ensure that your products arrive on time and in good condition. With these considerations in mind, import professionals possess the knowledge and expertise needed to navigate this complex market successfully. That’s where a reputable customs specialist like Platinum® Freight Management can assist.
