Favoury question - Do you live in Auckland or are you going there soon?

So. My scrubcutter, the nice blue one that I bought on TradeMe? It's in Auckland and it's 1.8 metres long.

Now, those of you who are familiar with transporting weird stuff round the country will know that NZPost and couriers won't handle anything more than 150cm long. That's right folks, my scrubcutter is TOO LONG! Maybe I should send out a spam - "Is your scrubcutter too short? Come see me?"

*cough*

Anyway, I've phoned around various freight companies, and they all want to charge me an arm, a leg and $100 to cart this thing - at 10kg, I think that's ridiculous. So, I'm putting it out there. Anyone going to Auckland in the next few days, or know anyone who's travelling from there to Wellington, who'd be willing to throw this thing in the back seat for the trip? If the cutter were 30cm shorter, NZPost would take it for $25, and I'm offering $30 to anyone who can get it to Wellington for me.

If you're interested, please email me (tatjna) at (gmail) dot (com). If you have a better idea, please comment and tell me what it is.

PS volumetric sucks if you have a light long thing. (cross posted to wellingtonnz)
