The Moving Company in Christchurch
Are you relocating to Christchurch, New Zealand? Let The Moving Company take the hassle out of your move and handle every step of the process for you. We’ve been moving Kiwis and future Kiwis within New Zealand, to New Zealand, and from New Zealand for more than 30 years.
From a Small Load of Furniture to Moving the Contents of Your Home
We can’t wait to give you a warm welcome! We’re the moving experts, with a great track record for packing and moving in and around Christchurch. We take care of it all: from assessing your home or office goods, to getting your belongings insured, clearing customs with international moves, and any other little thing you may need along the way. We’re well equipped and experienced when it comes to moving everything that’s important to you, including pets, cars, and even valuable artwork.
Moving Boxes & Packing
There are two ways to tackle all the packing ahead of your move: you can do it all yourself, or you can get professional packers in to take care of it all for you. The Moving Company can assist you with both by either supplying you with all the moving boxes and packing materials you could need, or by offering our professional packing services. Our moving boxes are all designed with household goods in mind and a secure enough to protect even the most fragile of items, while our professional packers don't only get everything packed up for you, they also ensure that boxes are labelled and numbered so tracking and inventory management is much easier throughout your move.
Moving Cross Country or Overseas With Pets
We understand that pets hold a very special place in the family but moving great distances with pets is challenging. With our specialist pet transport service, you can move more easily knowing that your pets are being moved comfortably and safely. From moves within NZ, to overseas moves to or from NZ, we can tailor our pet transport service to your needs, covering collection, special dietary or medical needs, boarding, quarantine when crossing borders, and delivery to your new home. Your beloved pets’ welfare is a priority for us throughout, and they will be treated with care along every step of their journey.
Moving Services to Help You Settle in Faster
The Moving Company offers a specialised, international car shipping service from anywhere in the world to New Zealand, or from NZ to overseas destinations. We offer a full shipping solution, along with expert guidance on ensuring your vehicle complies with regulations and taking care of all the other requirements such as export documentation, bill of lading, insurance, import clearance through customs and quarantine, and delivery to a compliance centre. And if you’re not expecting to be around when your vehicle arrives in Christchurch, we can arrange for your car or boat to be stored in our customs bonded and quarantine certified secure facilities and provide any necessary service and maintenance programmes while in storage.
Affordable & Secure Storage
Secure short, medium, or long-term storage is just one of the professional moving services we offer. No matter your requirements, you can put your trust in The Moving Company. Our storage solutions are highly flexible, and more affordable than most self-storage options. We believe you should only pay for the volume of space you use, not the full size of the storage unit; it just makes sense that way. And if you’re moving with us, you don’t even need to ask for a storage quote, we automatically include a separate storage quote with your original moving quote, so if you suddenly realise you’re going to need storage, you already know what it will cost.
Our storage options in Christchurch are made more flexible and secure through the use of shipping containers for storing your belongings, making it possible to load your belongings directly into your own storage container at your home, with your locked container then transported directly to our facilities, which are under 24/7 security monitoring. No excess handling of your belongings, and no need to arrange your own transport.
