Whether you’re moving for work, family or purely for a change of scenery, we understand the challenges and emotions involved.

Why is New Zealand Movers your only choice for moving within New Zealand?

We’re one of the few remaining movers with a true dedicated line-haul fleet capable of servicing long distance removals across the country.

A long-distance move can be referred to as an intercity or domestic move. A long-distance move is very different to a local move (a move within the same town or city) as it often involves moving hundreds or even thousands of kilometres across the country. It’s important that you’re able to distinguish a reputable domestic moving company from some of the fly-by-night operators, who are not truly removalists at all and have been known to underquote and then request additional fees once the truck has been loaded.
With New Zealand Movers, our intercity moving quotes take many factors into consideration, to ensure you receive a competitive quotation tailored to your unique requirements. The volume and distance of your move are the two single biggest factors when it comes to determining your expect move cost. We provide instant online estimates which give you a estimated range to work on for your budgeting requirements.
It’s important to keep in mind that no two moves are the same, which is why we recommend a free no-obligation pre-move survey in order to fully assess your unique requirements.
Both! In our endeavour to provide the ultimate moving experience to our customers we were unable to find the perfect modality of transport and therefore developed our own, affectionately known as The Stinger, which offers the versatility of containerisation whilst providing the flexibility of a furniture vehicle. Providing capacity for three 20’ High Cube sole use containers, in excess of 100 cubic metres we have every move size covered. We also couldn’t ignore our environmental responsibility and our commitment to reduce our carbon footprint which is greatly reduced by transporting three containers on the same journey.
Whilst others have pursued one modality of transport exclusively we believe the synergies achieved by combing both containerisation and road transport provide a moving experience which is truly second to none. Our clients have peace of mind knowing their prized possession are safely and securely stored in a shipping container which is then efficiently transported by our company-owned vehicle, The Stinger, without any reliance on third-party service providers like KiwiRail or coastal shipping services which are prone to delays. Our clients enjoy the speed of a direct road service, security and safety without the need for double-handling, tailored to your preferred moving dates.
