Here are a few options for sending skins to Animal Skin Tanning Services in Invercargill.
Some Important points to note
Please ensure that you include all your contact details inside the package. This includes your e-mail, phone numbers, and address. This way we will know who the hide belongs to when it arrives in Invercargill
Hides and skins can either be sent Frozen or Salted.
* Frozen Cow Hides should be double bagged and put in a plastic box and sealed . By doing this even if it takes 3-4 days to get freighted to Invercargill the hide will still be ok. What is most important is it is packed well so there is no leakage. For smaller skins it is best to send by any overnight courier to Invercargill . Again though ensure they are packed well so there is no chance of leakage due to thawing out in transit.
* Salted Cow Hides and skins should be packed the same as above. As they are semi -preserved there is no rush to get them here. So look for the cheapest freight option.
* Freight costs are worked out on a combination of weight and volume so the lighter and smaller you can make the package the cheaper it will be.
*We now have a freezer located in Canterbury which we can arrange fortnightly freight to Invercargill. Click button to see Pdf for details.
