Due to the seriousness of the Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs that have been found on ships bringing heavy machinery and cars from Japan the transport ships have been stopped from unloading in New Zealand. The Ministry of Primary Industries is taking a strong approach and having all ships checked, treated and cleaned to ensure none of the bugs arrive in NZ.

The Brown Marmorated Stink Bug would have a devastating effect on New Zealand’s Horticulture industry. Should it settle here it will cost billions of dollars of damage, so it is understandable that the Ministry of primary industries is taking a very strong stance on ensuring the bug is eliminated. It is important that everyone makes an effort to look for these bugs in your property to ensure they do not take hold in NZ. You can find information here from the MPI https://www.mpi.govt.nz/protection-and-response/responding/alerts/brown-marmorated-stink-bug/ To find out more a google search on Mamorated stink bug shipping delays in NZ will bring up more details.

What this means for the car industry is that we have had no new vehicles arriving since the 20th of January.
Wholesale Cars Direct has a current scheduled of 220 cars arriving into Wellington from the 27th of March. All going well we should be back up and running with full stock levels by the 10th of April.

We are very fast running out of stock on our yard. We apologise for any inconvenience, this situation is totally out of our control and we hope that MPI contain this pest so it cannot take hold in New Zealand.

Thanks for your understanding.

Best regards

Team WCD
