What Can't Be Shipped

Dangerous Goods

 

Many items are not acceptable for shipment using BuyUSA's services.

We must comply with the rules and regulations of the airlines, Customs, Agriculture (MAF) and other government agencies even though some of the below items maybe freely available in New Zealand.

This is due to the importer satisfying the various regulatory requirements for that product.

BuyUSA is designed as a high volume, low cost importing solution. For that reason we are unable to facilitate the shipment of items that require special customs or other regulatory approval.

 

Goods may be prohibited due to

  • New Zealand Customs or other New Zealand government agency regulations.
  • MAF (ministry of agriculture) Biosecurity regulations
  • Airline Dangerous Goods Regulations

 

All items, irrespective of packaging, listed in the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations are not to be sent by air cargo.

The goods and substances listed below are, in any shape or form, all prohibited items. There are also many other less common prohibited items. If you are unsure, please Contact Us we are always happy to help. However, due to the complex nature of some products, it remains your responsibility to ensure your item is safe to send. Acceptance of your item by BuyUSA does not free you of this responsibility.

While prohibited items may appear harmless, under certain circumstances they can easily become dangerous. Air pressure and temperature changes, for example, could cause a prohibited item to leak, ignite or explode.

Items with an IATA Dangerous Goods classification include:

  • Explosives (eg ammunition, fireworks, igniters, flares, toy caps)
  • Gases (eg aerosol cans, cigarette lighters, camping gas cylinders - full or empty, fire extinguishers)
  • Flammable liquids and flammable solids (eg paint, alcohol, perfume, matches, petrol, kerosene, aftershave, turpentine, solvents, cleaning fluids, nitrate products)
  • Oxidising substances and organic peroxides (eg hair dye, disinfectants, fibreglass repair kits)
  • Toxic (poisonous) and infectious substances
  • Radioactive materials
  • Corrosives (eg mercury - including thermometers, bleach, nail polish and remover, nitric acids, battery fluids)
  • Other goods that are highly magnetic, polymerizable or otherwise unsuitable for carriage (eg asbestos, dry ice, first aid kits, wet-cell batteries)

 

Below is a schedule of Prohibited Imports from New Zealand Customs. In addition to this BuyUSA will NOT accept for shipment any of the below items.

All shipments will be inspected by BuyUSA personnel in our U.S. Facility. Any shipments found to contain prohibited items will be either returned to the shipper if possible, held by us or destroyed. Any attempt to ship a prohibited item may also result in your membership being cancelled any all future deliveries being refused.
