Advanced Packing Techniques
Here at New Zealand Movers we go to great length to ensure that our packing and moving staff are trained and mentored to utilise the safest and most efficient packing and moving methods to maximise the protection of your belongings.
Our aim is to provide the utmost care and protection of your personal and household effects. As such, we employ the most up to date and specifically designed packaging materials and techniques in the moving industry.
Professional Packing Materials
New Zealand Movers use a wide range of packaging materials specifically designed for the packing and protection of your personal and household belongings.
We protect items such as china, plastics and books in paper before stowing in cartons.
Priority cartons are used for important items such as remote controls, bed legs, and bolts from dismantled furniture.
Tube Packing Stemware & Delicates
We wrap each individual item such as glassware with tissue and paper. Where recommended or requested, items are placed in corrugated cardboard tubes. Items are packed together in a specifically sized removal carton.
Packing Pictures & Mirrors
Pictures are individually wrapped in tuff wrap. One or more pictures or mirrors are placed into an adjustable size picture carton.
Packing and Moving Flat Screen TVs
Before moving flat screen TVs, they are shape wrapped with tuff wrap, then placed inside a special flat screen TV carton with polystyrene inserts for maximum stability and protection.
Clothes are placed flat into clothing cartons. Clothes can remain on their hangers and the arms are folded in, or remain on their hangers in a port-a-robe to avoid creasing and allow easy relocation of your wardrobe items.
Packing Bikes & Golf Clubs
To keep your sports gear in good condition, New Zealand Movers use purpose-made cartons to pack bicycles and golf clubs.
Specified delicate or fragile items get customised protection.
Bed & Settee Protection
Mattresses and bases are placed inside heavy-gauge plastic mattress bags.
Lounge suites are placed inside heavy-gauge plastic lounge bags.
Loading Trucks & Containers
For local and city to city removals, items are protected with furniture removal pads. Goods are loaded tightly and strapped into our removal vehicles or steel shipping containers to avoid movement.
Containers are secured and sealed with high-density steel locking bolt seals.
Furniture Wrapping for International Moves
Where necessary, foam wrap is used for highly polished timber. Additional corrugated cardboard is placed over tuff wrap to protect glass.
Furniture wrapping involves shape wrapping individual items with tuff wrap.
Bed & Settee Protection for International Moves
For international removals, lounge suites are shape wrapped with tuff wrap for maximum protection. Beds are placed in heavy-gauge plastic protectors.
Appliance Wrapping for International Moves
For city to city and international removals, stainless steel appliances and whiteware are shape wrapped with tuff wrap for maximum protection.
International Container Loading
For international removals, goods are loaded into steel shipping containers, secured and sealed with high-density steel locking bolt seals.
Crates for less than a container load
Carton & Package Tracking
All cartons and items are labelled for tracking.
After labelling, a record of inventory is kept so that all items are accounted for throughout your move.
