The Moving Company in Wellington
Are you planning on moving to Wellington, New Zealand? The Moving Company is here to help you. We’ve made moving easy for more than 30 years, so whether it is to New Zealand, within New Zealand, or even from New Zealand, you’ll be in good hands.
From a Small Load of Furniture to Moving the Contents of Your Home
We’re industry experts when it comes to moving in and around Wellington and we’re ready to help you move and settle into your new home or office with ease. We can handle the packing and moving, insurance, and any other little things you need along the way.
Whether you’re immigrating to New Zealand, coming back home, or relocating overseas for a new work assignment, The Moving Company can take care of all your moving needs. And we know that moving abroad can be daunting when you’re doing it alone, which is why we’ve designed our international shipping service to be a reliable and competitive door-to-door service. We provide a full moving solution, from coordinating the packing and shipping of all your possessions from anywhere in the world to New Zealand, to even assisting with moving a car or your pets to Wellington!
Moving Boxes & Packing
We have a wide range of custom designed moving boxes and packing materials to ensure that the valuable contents of your home are moved in a perfectly safe and secure manner. We take care to protect and cushion everything before carefully packing it into our robust and protective cartons. With The Moving Company you can enjoy complete peace-of-mind thanks to our Porta Robe cartons, bike cartons, artwork cartons, and sports equipment cartons. We know too that you’ll probably be under a lot of stress sorting out the finer details of your relocation, so we also offer a comprehensive packing service, which will see a team of professional packers come to you to pack up the entire contents of your home quickly and securely, ready to be shipped anywhere.
Moving Cross Country or Overseas With Pets
If you're moving within Wellington, you won't find it too difficult to move your family pets yourself. But if you're moving long distance – or overseas – you're going to need professional assistance. The Moving Company partners with specialist pet transport companies around the world to ensure your pets are moved safely, securely, and comfortably from door-to-door, even taking care of boarding and quarantine requirements if necessary. It's just another way we make moving easy.
Moving Services to Help You Settle in Faster
It can often slip your mind that that one light needs to be fixed or that the drawer handle is a bit wonky. These are the last things that should be ticked off a checklist before you move out of your current home, but in the rush of it all, forgetting is too easy. We’ll help with our flexible home cleaning services that can be customised to your needs, leaving your home sparkling clean and ready for its new occupants. We can even provide a professional handyman or tradesman should you require a few odd repairs in your current home, or your new Wellington home, right down to helping you mount appliances and artwork.
Affordable & Secure Storage
Because short or long-term storage is sometimes necessary when moving to a new house, when you request a quote from us, we will also send you a quote for storage. And because we base our pricing on volume, you'll find our rates are more affordable than traditional self-storage. And whether you choose to use our module storage boxes or our larger storage containers, your belongings are always stored in our own facilities, protected by 24/7 security monitoring.
New Zealand Owned, Operated and Trusted
Since our founding more than 30 years ago, The Moving Company has always been 100% New Zealand owned and operated, so you benefit from movers who know the fastest route from one side of Wellington to the other, and understand all the border control requirements for any household goods being shipped to New Zealand.
We are also able to offer a comprehensive range of moving insurance options for both local and international moves, because while we take care to ensure your belongings are always safe, there are some things we cannot control or plan for.
In-home Appraisals – a Great Place to Start
If you’re moving the full contents of your house, the best place to start is with an in-home appraisal. We understand that everybody’s home is unique, with contents that may require specific handling.
The in-home appraisal will allow us to survey everything in your home and make an assessment for the best moving solution to meet your particular requirements, with a detailed quote and custom moving plan presented at the end. We offer this as a free service within the main centres of New Zealand.
