New Zealand Movers NEW Dunedin Facility is Solar Powered and Electric Vehicle Charging Ready

We are thrilled to share the exciting news of our new world-class moving and storage facility is now in full operation.

From humble beginnings New Zealand Movers have grown into one of New Zealand’s prominent providers of moving and storage services with a team who are ‘Passionate About Moving!’

New Zealand Movers has had a presence in Dunedin for the last two decades, servicing the Otago region with local household relocations, intercity moving, international moves, and imports to New Zealand for thousands of customers.

Investing in the future growth of our business

Due to the changing logistics of household moving within New Zealand we made the decision for a new warehouse and storage facility that reflected today’s customer expectations. This has evolved with New Zealand Movers completing significantly more relocations by road in our special high cube containers, so we required a facility with a yard large enough to handle our New Zealand container fleet, and international container volumes, whilst being within the proximity of the ports and where our team live.

Building a Solid & Sustainable Future

Planning of the new build started in early 2021, with building consent obtained in Q3, 2022 and construction on site commencing in November ’22 marking the beginning of an exciting new chapter in our journey.  We selected Calder Stewart, a well-known South Island based construction company to build the facility for us.

New Zealand Movers is a team who pride themselves on a commitment to sustainability and environmental protection, which has been reflected in the location, design and green building features of this new office and warehouse.

Today New Zealand Movers Dunedin ‘state of the art’ branch is in a prime location at 1 Odlins Place, Mosgiel. We are situated less than 30 km from Port Otago, a short drive from Dunedin’s Central Business District and directly across the road from the proposed Otago Inland Port facility.

Our purpose-built Dunedin office and warehouse is an eco-friendly facility sitting on an impressive 5000m2 site with a large yard for containers and our fleet. The building boasts a modern high stud design, is energy efficient being 100% solar powered, has LED lighting throughout, is prewired for electric vehicle charging , and has large weather protection canopies for unloading and loading containers. The warehouse facility is fully bonded by New Zealand Customs and MPI for Quarantine, with the latest security monitoring options.

“Congratulations to the Dunedin team! This is a significant milestone for our business and demonstrates that we are focused on growth and sustainable practices with market leading facilities, whilst delivering operational productivity and efficiency that new modern facilities bring. It’s an awesome facility and one of the finest in the area, with a lot of local positive commentary about how good it looks. Mark, our owner had significant involvement in the design and features, providing an awesome environment for our Dunedin team” says Nathan Baker, National Regional Manager.

From our new office and warehouse New Zealand Movers offers world-class solar powered storage solutions and worldwide moving services to customers across Otago and the wider South Island region.
