International Packing Services

Our experts take care of everything, from the international packing, wrapping and uplift of your possessions in New Zealand right through to our service partners unpacking and taking away leftover materials for recycling when you take delivery.

Everything in your shipment is packed to international standards, we have specialised materials and techniques for crating and packing artwork, antiques, high value breakables and other fragile items. Additionally, we have designed our own range of cartons for moving bikes, golf clubs, clothes on the hangar, priority items and flat screen televisions.

An important part of our packing service is the preparation of a detailed inventory of your personal effects. This travels with your shipment for the full relocation journey. It is an important document that is also used by customs and quarantine officials upon arrival of your shipment at the destination country.

Worldwide Connections & Partnerships

Our team understand that moving internationally is about much more than logistics. It is an anxious time and help is often needed to make life easier when moving. We don’t forget about you when your shipment leaves our shores. Quality lines of communication are maintained for the full ‘lifetime’ of each relocation. Our objective is to ensure you successfully start your new life before our job is done.

Of course, we can’t do it all on our own. As a member of the FIDI global alliance and the prestigious OMNI network we can choose from the world’s best moving companies that we have forged relationships with to provide our clearance and delivery services at your destination. All FIDI and OMNI members must meet the FAIM quality standard, the only independently audited quality standard in the international moving industry.

Once we understand your needs, we will match you with the most appropriate service partner for your destination. Alternatively, some of our experienced international customers may ask us to work with their own preferred destination service provider, based upon previous moving experiences.

Insurance Services

We highly recommend you take out a comprehensive marine insurance policy to mitigate the risks associated with an international relocation. Learn more.
