For the last two years our teams throughout the country have worked with the Starship Foundation as part of the Big Egg Hunt fundraising campaign.
The Moving Company has been a proud major sponsor of this event and has been responsible for moving, storing and installing 100 giant bespoke eggs across New Zealand. In 2015 the campaign was successful in raising over $204,000 for Starship, New Zealand’s national children’s hospital.
As a team we work hard to provide an excellent, friendly service to families. As a company we are excited to provide our services, and to be part of the Starship family as a sponsor of the egg campaign. Through the Big Egg Hunt campaign we were able to make a difference by assisting with logistics, which in turn raises money to make a difference for New Zealand’s sick children and their families.
Messages from the Starship Foundation
The Moving Company has been integral to our campaigns success. As our logistics partner the team managed the movement of delicate fibreglass eggs around the country, including installation and supplying storage facilities.
The Starship Foundation team has worked with the depots in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch and The Moving Company staff have become very much part of the Starship family. The Moving Company team at all levels is a joy to work with – always finding a way to get the job done in a professional manner.
The egg installation teams went above and beyond what was required; working late into the night to ensure every one of the 100 eggs was safely delivered to and installed in its location. The team is incredibly polite, immaculately turned out, always on time and nothing is too much trouble.
Thanks to JP and the teams in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch for everything you have done to help Starship, our National Children’s Hospital, you are all stars!

In March 2015, New Zealand’s leading artists, designers and architects turned 100 giant eggs into unique and desirable masterpieces for the second year running. The eggs were hidden throughout Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch in historic, landmark and public spaces. The New Zealand public hunted down the eggs, collecting and sharing through social media and digital applications.
