New Zealand Movers Wellington

Expert Local and Long-distance Home and Office Movers

Trading Lower Hutt for Aro Valley, or moving in the opposite direction and leaving central Wellington to settle in Johnsonville? Wherever you’re moving to, whether it’s still in Wellington, or somewhere else on New Zealand’s north or south islands, the process can be simpler with New Zealand Movers. With more than 40 years’ experience helping Wellingtonians move home or business – near, far, and even overseas – we’ve had time to adapt our services to make any move with us a breeze. You decide how involved you want us to be by selecting from a variety of add-on moving services, so we can do little more than provide a moving van and some removal staff, or we can take care of all the packing and unpacking, and even help move your vehicles and pets. We can even help you out with secure storage for any belongings you don’t want moved to your new home just yet, whether it’s because you don’t have the space, or are still finishing off some remodelling.

Moving Overseas With New Zealand Movers

We have a long history of ensuring that foreigners relocating to New Zealand receive the same world-class service our customers moving across the islands – or having to move overseas themselves – receive. Our membership and affiliation with a number of international movers associations enables us to assist with all the elements of your move in New Zealand, while connecting you to expert movers in South Africa, Asia, the US, the UK, or anywhere in the world served by our worldwide partners.

We can arrange shipping via sea freight or air freight, along with assisting with certain aspects of customs and quarantine, providing access to low-rate currency conversion and transfer services, ensure your pets are transported overseas comfortably and with minimal stress, and even help ship your car, motorcycle, and other vehicles. Finally, for anyone moving to New Zealand, our partnership with On Arrival provides you with access to a variety of relocation services designed to make settling in a new country and city so much easier.

Secure Storage

New Zealand Movers offers secure storage in our own purpose-built facilities in four locations across New Zealand, suitable for long-term or short-term storage. Our storage facilities are not the same as self-storage, so are not open to the public, but perfect for storing some or all of your household belongings for any period of time. They are all security monitored 24/7, and bonded by New Zealand Customs and Quarantine Services, offering a much higher level of protection for any possessions you store with us.
