An important update from The Moving Company

Kia Ora! Our network of branches remains in full operation throughout Aotearoa servicing local, inter-city and international moves.

Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 Omicron outbreak in New Zealand and subsequent isolation rules, some aspects of our service may be affected. In some cases, there could be delays in communication and possible delays to scheduled moving services. Important to note that our team will do all that is possible to support you with your upcoming relocation.

Our top priority is maintaining the health and safety of our staff and our customers, and we have measures in place to protect our staff and customers and minimise the risk of further spreading of the covid-19. As we continue to monitor the situation and follow the government guidelines, please be patient with our staff.
