Case Study

mike and glad grimshaw happy clients who imported an american caravan

Just in Time for Christmas

Mike found Cornerstone USA Imports through the website and made contact about importing an American caravan. While in Kerikeri on holiday, Kevin arranged to visit them and discuss their requirements. Later they decided to purchase a motorhome, but changed their minds at the last minute and contacted Kevin to source a Coachman Apex 265 for them in America.

Kevin found the exact model they were looking for at a dealer in Grand Rapids, and negotiated a deal including accessories. After the payment was made Kevin arranged transportation to the Port of Baltimore where it set sail for NZ. Compliance was completed and Kevin arranged delivery to Mike and Gladis just before Christmas 2021, in time for their summer holiday.


“​Kevin looked after the purchase of our caravan from start to finish. We found the Cornerstone USA Imports site completely by accident. We have never done anything like this before so we entered with a fair bit of trepidation.

Kevin sourced the model caravan we wanted in Texas, arranged the purchase, the transport to LA, shipping to NZ, pick up from Auckland to Tauranga and all the compliance work as well as the additional work we wanted. Kevin looked after all the paperwork in both the USA and NZ. Kevin’s knowledge and advise throughout the project was invaluable. His network of suppliers and contractors in Tauranga who completed the compliance work etc were excellent. We dealt directly with them, which was a real bonus.

We highly recommend Cornerstone USA Imports to anyone who may be thinking of doing the same thing. We found Kevin extremely easy to deal with. Utilising his management makes the whole exercise stress free.”
