Moving furniture to Australia, your complete home contents, or just a few items

If you are moving your entire home contents to Australia, we will arrange for one of our trans-tasman moving managers to visit and discuss your moving requirements with you, and then prepare a written fully detailed no obligation quotation specific to your needs, or we provide relocation costs to Australia quotes online. By simply selecting what items by room you are wanting to ship to Australia, we can provide an accurate quote, via e-mail (subject to actually viewing your goods to confirm the volume). There are several methods for shipping your goods to Australia, depending on your budget or time constraints. Give us a call toll free on 0800 668464 (0800 MOVING) to contact your nearest branch in New Zealand. Shipping your car to Australia may also be worthwhile.

Carton and smaller shipment pricing to Australia from New Zealand

The Moving Company offers exceptionally competitive rates for the shipping of personal effects, excess baggage, suitcases, cartons or estate items to Australia.

For smaller shipments, often referred to as baggage or excess baggage shipments, we are able to offer the following rates. Baggage shipments are based on the number of cartons, or suitcases being able to be lifted by one person, excludes furniture requiring more than 1 person to lift, and where no unpacking is required on delivery after customs and quarantine clearance. To book this service simply give us a call toll free on 0800 668484 (0800 MOVING) or contact us via e-mail.
