Shipping

Shipping your trophies home from New Zealand is very straight forward and you can expect them to arrive back in the US within 90 days

When you have finished your hunt with Alpine Hunting, your Guide will help you fill in the job sheet for how you want your trophies prepared before you depart the Lodge.  It should have your full physical address, phone number and email address.   Also the contact phone and email address of the Customs Broker that may be involved in the shipping process. 

We will organise the transfer of your horns and hides to forward to our local professional expeditor, and when the crate is completed and is ready to be shipped, they will contact you directly for payment by credit card and any other details they need.  They will arrange and present all necessary documentation at point of export in New Zealand, however you will be requested by other US government agencies to supply further information once your items have arrived in the USA. 

Please organise your own insurance if you feel this is necessary as once these items leave our premises we are not responsible for this.  In New Zealand the insurance purchased to cover trophies in transit is referred to as CARGO OPEN or MARINE INSURANCE POLICY whether SEA or AIRFREIGHT is used. 

 


CUSTOMS BROKERS

You, or your taxidermist/fur dressing company, may have a customs broker within the USA.

These agents will clear your animal trophies through US Customs and US Fish & Wildlife on your behalf and will also arrange delivery to your nominated address. They may require you to sign a “Power of Attorney” form so they can act on your behalf.  All broker fees need to be paid by the hunter prior to on-forwarding from the customs location.  All charges/costs incurred in the clearance, handling and delivery of your crate within the USA are hunter’s care, as are any additional freight charges.


ONE HUNTER PER CRATE

"To properly monitor every single parcel/consignment entering the US, CBP no longer permits combined shipments and therefore have ordered all cargo carriers (Airlines etc.) to mandatory reporting/manifesting only one consignee or importer per shipment. Any combined shipments can be refused clearance, seized or re-exported at the consignee's/client's expense."  - Customs and Border Protection, under the Department of Homeland Security new regulations (CBP).
