Below are a few answers that may help...

How much will a lifejacket cost with a trade-in?

A significant discount is available on lifejackets purchased through the programme, all trade-in prices are shown on this page

My local boat ramp is not on the location schedule, are you going to add more locations?

The location schedule (which you’ll find here) ensures the Old4New van visits the most popular boat ramps in key areas throughout the country. But not to worry – if you miss the van, our friends at Boating & Outdoors are supporting the Old4New Lifejacket Upgrade Campaign by offering the trade-in at their various stores on allocated weeks throughout the campaign.

Check out the map or visit www.boatingandoutdoors.co.nz for your nearest store.

When can I get the Old4New discount at my local Boating & Outdoors store?

Your local Boating and Outdoors store will honour the Old4New trade-in price for a week after the Old4New van has visited your local area. Check out when they’ll be helping us with Old4New here.

Can I pay with a credit card or eftpos at the Old4New van?

For sure, eftpos and credit card transactions are available at the Old4New van.

Is there a limit on the number of lifejackets I can upgrade?

No, however the number of lifejackets available for upgrade will be limited by stock availability. Be sure to check with the Old4New team on the day. If the Old4New van runs out, check in with your local Boating and Outdoors team – they’ll be able to sort you out.

My lifejacket is not that old, can I still use it as a trade-in?

You’d be amazed at what gets traded-in – from old, worn lifejackets to brand new ones that just don’t fit the owner anymore. You can bring in any condition lifejacket to trade!  The main thing is that you walk away with the best lifejacket to suit your boating and help you get the most out of your time on the water, and our Old4New team can help you get it right.

I don’t have a lifejacket to trade-in, can I still purchase a new lifejacket from the van?

Yes, you can purchase any of the Hutchwilco lifejackets from the Old4New van. If you don’t have an old lifejacket to trade in but want to get set for summer with a new one, all lifejackets will be available at the normal retail price listed.

Can I get sorted with a Coastguard Membership as well? 

For sure! The Old4New team can set you up with a Coastguard Membership, or you can sign up or renew at www.coastguard.nz/membership . You can also call the team on 0800 BOATIE (262 843).
