Just about cheaper to buy a new EPIRB with 10 year battery life.

Did you declare the battery as that is possibly classed as a DG (dangerous goods) so ups the cost.

We send DGs every day for business with Post Haste. $5 for that size overnight Chc-Akl, so someone is taking the mickey.

Batteries installed in a device should be not DG's, NZ post allows 2 per parcel as long as they are within a device for example. As long as they aren't damaged

Could be a case of Lithium battery and aircraft carrying passengers, the 2 aren't mates. A lot of freight does travel internally by aircraft these days.
Or of course you could simply be dealing with a mob who think they are a freight company. We deal with a few who charge $Absolutebullshit + gst for freight, way over the top. One big name send us a drum and wanted $87 for shipping across town, I sent it back to them for $12.90 ...........with a note about dropping pants bending over and try to smile as it goes in.
I sadly suspect with service mobs like that it is the later.

I did have an interesting freight charge from AA solar for a panel to be sent North, A pro forma invoice had freight at around $80.00 via Peter Baker transport, I queried this before transfering the invoice amount and found there was an alternative option to use Poste Haste at app. $14.00. No brainer really. That this charge (PB) was considered even an option had me gasping!
