We would like to extend our thanks to the team who moved us into our new apartment last Thursday. Cord and the boys worked well, and Johnny was an unexpected bonus unpacking all the boxes that had been previous packed at the last house. Everything went smoothly and we are well settled. Can heartily recommend The Moving Company in respect of service and value.

Gentlemen, you need to know...

…what a fantastic team you have! Over the years I’ve made many moves, both internationally and domestically. Most have been very good. Your company, however, was truly superb because of the outstanding customer service and attention to detail provided by your employees.

From the initial speedy response of Richard Wood, assisted by the ever pleasant and proficient Toni Johnson, I was impressed. Their knowledge, expertise and sound advice was much appreciated. Nothing was a problem. Their assistance was seamless and accommodating. Richard and Toni were truly a delight to deal with. I cannot say enough good things about them.

Over my relocation, I had 3 different crew combinations in my home, packing up and delivering to Napier. They were wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble. And they did a marvellous job. John Piliu was particularly impressive.

I have spent most of my career as an investigative television correspondent both in Canada and in NZ for shows like 60 Minutes and 20/20. I’ve travelled all over the world and met all kinds of people. I know first-hand how critical it is to work with talented and dedicated people to produce the very best results in often challenging circumstances where you must deliver on deadline. I learned early in life you cannot do it alone. That’s why I’m sharing my impressions with you, as I know you’ll appreciate the feedback.

Gentlemen, thanks for your time and trouble. Here’s to your continued success.

My fussiest friend recommended your company, so I knew you would be good. It turns out you were great!!

Dear Rebecca and the amazing team at The Moving Company,

Now that the dust has settled from moving in November, I wanted to put pen to paper to properly thank you all for the absolutely amazing job you did of helping me move house.

Rebecca, I truly appreciated your personal effort of helping me find so many boxes and sorting out the logistics of the day. You were so polite, organised and friendly, it made me feel completely at ease. The moving team on both days were utterly incredible. They were respectful, careful, polite and put 100% of themselves into the job. Not only that, but they went the extra mile when my trampoline wouldn’t fit into a moving truck. They dismantled and reassembled it on the day of moving with zero stress. I was incredibly impressed by them going that extra mile.

I originally found out about The Moving Company by posting on Facebook asking for recommendations. My fussiest friend recommended your company, so I knew you would be good. It turns out you were great!!

Thank you so much for making the huge task of moving, storing and moving (again) my possessions into my new home. The Moving Company made a stressful time hugely less stressful just by doing the amazing job you did. So thank you. Please can you forward this letter to your manager and to the owner(s) of the company? I need them to know how impressed I was.

Thank you so much. Kind regards, Colette

Our shift turned out to be stress free and went very smoothly.

It is not often I write one of these letters, in fact this is the first, but I felt compelled to acknowledge the excellent service we have received from your firm with our recent shift. This started the moment I rang to get quotes and information on the service you provide. Your sales ladies were extremely helpful and very professional. The two men, Tom and his lovely off-sider, arrived to pack and load our household goods were exceptional. They packed expertly; problem-solved the dilemma of the truck being on the road and some distance away, and after consulting with the neighbor got permission to use his drive. They then very efficiently packed the truck. They were both, solid workers, very courteous, respectful young men.

We had the same experience on the Nelson end. They were very nice nice guys to deal with. They unloaded the furniture with the same professionalism it was loaded with. I was also delighted in unpacking there was nothing broken. I cant thank you enough; it's a stressful time shifting household lots from one island to the other, our shift with your company turned out to be stress free and went very smoothly.

Best wishes to you and your team. Kind Regards, Sue Atkins.

You have some great team members in The Moving Company.

I thought it was important to follow up and let you know what a really great job your guys did for the house move. Moving house is stressful as all hell generally however with the organised list that we put together and with the good input of your guys, it was damn fine move. Man they work hard – Maddie and her team of guys did a damn fine job I will say. And with Toby and Nigel, it all went perfectly. Both from One Tree Hill via Northcote Point to our new palace in Forrest Hill. People are very very slow to forward a big THANK YOU and HIGH FIVE and THANKS A HEAP when things go right – those emails you like to get so thought I would finish off your Friday with one of those… Toby is a great chap too – nothing was a problem. You have some great team members in The Moving Company. Please pass on our personal big thanks – they did a fantastic job. I’ll need them again soon, so Toby, I’ll be in touch.

Moving Business Facilities

The Moving Company was engaged to move the Opus Research equipment and facilities, from Gracefield to Petone. This was a unique, large and complex project, which took six months to complete. Our facilities included various laboratories, physical workshops, unusual and large equipment, as well as training and office facilities.

The Moving Company was chosen from several suppliers to undertake this project. Louie and his team did a tremendous job. They undertook the work to a high standard, met deadlines, maintained excellent communication with us and were a pleasure to work with. Nothing was a problem for Louie, which was critical in this project, particularly as the complexity meant we were often dealing with unplanned issues on a daily basis.

I would be happy to provide further information by phone.

Regards, Peter Benfell, Opus Research Leader, Opus International Consultants Ltd.

We were impressed with it all

Huge thanks for a job well done, with our recent move from Crofton Downs to Waikanae Beach. Having lived in the same house for 34 years, the whole process seemed rather daunting but from the very beginning the team at The Moving Company were great to work with. First, they were the only one to respond to my online request for a quote. Next, Julaine's assessment visit answered a lot of our questions, and the paperwork was completed efficiently. Then there was Shane, who packed up pretty much our whole house on his own! Lastly, the guys on the truck who loaded and unloaded everything with such ease on a very hot day. No damage, no breakages - we were impressed with it all, and have no hesitation in recommending The Moving Company to anyone wanting professional, efficient and friendly service.

Keep up the good work! Gerry & Shirley Kalogeropoulos Moving Within New Zealand

One of the best teams I have ever met

We would like to extend our thanks to your crew for the excellent job they performed in moving us from North Beach, Christchurch to Tumara Park, Christchurch. They were extremely hard working, helpful and polite. We appreciate Willy’s efficiency and humor throughout the move. Mike’s manners and well-spoken conversation was a real pleasure. Logan’s attention to detail and wanting to do a good job was more than we could hope for in a team of men that your company could have. I believe you have one of the best teams I have ever met. I have used a lot of different moving companies over the years (moved 5 times in 5 years) and have never come across a fun and hardworking team as this. Please recognize that you have some real value to your business with a crew like them and I hope they are rewarded for this. If we have to move again, we would look to getting Mike, Logan and Willy – Moving Company to help and provide more excellent service. Once again I would like to take this opportunity to extend my sincere thanks to Willy, Mike and Logan in coordinating a very successful move on our behalf. In addition, I would not hesitate to recommend your company to others in the future. Please pass on our thanks to Willy, Logan and Mike.

We thought they were brilliant!

As in the past (because we have used The Moving Company several times now) we were absolutely delighted with the service you provided. Thank you. Is it possible to make some comments for the record about the three guys on our job?  We thought they were brilliant!  All three of them had the most positive, cheerful and enthusiastic attitude to the job.  They worked so hard and they were a pleasure to deal with and to talk to.  They were completely careful with our belongings and were really skilful when it came to moving heavy pieces down the stairs and stacking the truck with a very large load.  They are a real asset to your company and represented you very well.  We would recommend your company to others who are moving. Thanks again.
Kind regards, April and Murray Thompson


The Moving Company have been involved in moving our treasured possessions from pillar to post (or should that be Khandallah to Kohimarama!) seven times over the last two decades. In every case they have provided a team of exceptional people to pack, load & transport our goods. It is the care, effort and consideration of these people that sets The Moving Company apart from its competitors. In every case they handled the furniture as though it was their own treasured possessions they were transporting, provided clear and thorough documentation and were incredibly helpful and unflappable in what can be an extremely stressful time for owners. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending The Moving Company, as they have proven time and again to be the best in the industry.

Kind regards, Garth & Angie London

Fast Response

This just reminded me I wanted to thank you and the team, both in Wellington and Auckland, for your awesome service! Everyone was really friendly and helpful at every stage of the process. I originally filled in 6 online forms on different moving company's websites to get estimates. Only 2 responded, you guys were the fastest to respond. As someone who job is web-based - keep up the good work! I'd definitely recommend you guys to anyone who's moving.

Thanks, Sara Moving Within New Zealand
