At New Zealand Movers we train our packers and moving staff in-house through our full time operational training programme. Dave Costigan is MITO certified and holds NZTA authorisation to train and issue Truck licenses, showing New Zealand Movers total commitment to improving our staffs performance and industry specific education, covering the latest techniques for protecting and moving your belongings.
We use the most advanced materials available and always have an eye on the environment; minimizing wastage and recycling and reusing where possible.
Professional Packing Materials
We 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 packing into cartons.
Priority cartons are used for important items such as remote controls, bed legs, and bolts from dismantled furniture. This way you know exactly where everything is as soon as you arrive.
Tube Packing Stemware & Delicates
All delicate items, such as glassware or china, are individually wrapped with paper and tissue. If necessary these can be packed in corrugated cardboard tubes for additional protection. All items are packed in specially designed removal cartons for transport.
Packing Pictures & Mirrors
Pictures are individually wrapped in Tuff Wrap, a material specially designed for packing household goods for export. One or more pictures or mirrors are then placed into an adjustable size picture carton for added protection.
Packing and Moving Flat Screen TVs
Flat screen TVs and computer screens are shape-wrapped with Tuff Wrap, then placed inside a special flat screen TV carton with polystyrene inserts for maximum stability and protection.
We use either flat clothes cartons or hanging port-a-robes for transporting clothes. Clothes in cartons are packed flat with their arms folded in; they can remain on their hangers. Port-a-robes are a little more expensive but reduce creasing so your clothes are ready to wear straight away.
Packing Bikes & Golf Clubs
We use purpose-made cartons for golf clubs and bicycles to keep your sports gear in good condition.
Specified delicate or fragile items get customised protection.
Bed & Settee Protection
We use heavy-gauge plastic mattress bags to protect mattresses and bed bases.
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 to protect highly polished wood. Additional corrugated cardboard is placed over Tuff Wrap to protect glass.
Furniture is shape-wrapped using Tuff Wrap for protection during international moves.
Bed & Settee Protection for International Moves
For international removals, lounge suites are shape-wrapped with Tuff Wrap for maximum protection. Beds are packed in heavy-gauge plastic protectors.
Appliance Wrapping for International Moves
For city-to-city and international removals, stainless steel appliances and white goods 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, our crew makes a comprehensive inventory so that every item can be tracked throughout your move.
