It was this time last year that we celebrated the significant milestone of 40 years in business. One year on and New Zealand Movers are thrilled to share the exciting news of a new world-class moving and storage facility being constructed in Dunedin.
From humble beginnings New Zealand Movers have grown into one of NZ’s prominent providers of moving and storage services with the team who are “Passionate About Moving!”
New Zealand Movers has had a presence in Dunedin for the last 15 years, servicing the Otago region with local household relocations, intercity moving, exports, and imports to New Zealand for thousands of customers.
Building a Solid Future
The decision for a new warehouse and storage facility is due to the changing logistics of household moving within New Zealand. This has evolved with New Zealand Movers completing significantly more relocations by road in our special high cube containers, meaning we require large yards to handle our New Zealand container fleet, and international container volumes. Our current facility in Bridgman Street, we have simply outgrown, and need to invest in the future growth of our business and Dunedin now.
NZ Movers Dunedin ‘state of the art’ branch is being built at 1 Odlins Place, Mosgiel. Selecting our new location was challenging. Dunedin has very limited options of greenfield development freehold land centrally, so it was logical to look to the significant expansion and development taking place in Mosgiel, which is situated less than 30 km from Port Otago and a very short drive via highway from Dunedin’s CBD. The site will now sit across the road from the proposed Otago inland port facility, which will put us in a prime position.
New Build Project Update
Planning of the new build started in early 2021, with building consent finally being obtained in Q3, 2022 and construction on site commencing in November ‘22. We are over halfway through the development which boosts a modern high stud design with solar power, LED lighting and weather protection canopies for unloading containers. Completion is scheduled for May this year.
Keep posted for further updates.
