Household Shipping

We offer household relocation by air and by sea, to port and to door, to most places in the world.

Air and Sea Freight
The cost of sea freight is volume based whereas airfreight is on weight as well as volume. The airline calculation for volumetric weight for air cargo is 167kgs per cubm.

Household Shipments
Most household shipments we recommend to go by sea, as they are handled better and, due to their volume, are more cost effective this way. Please complete our quotation form and we will happily provide you with a quote.

We recommend our professional packing service which, in most central regions, is performed in your home. Please see our section on packing within this site for full information.

Storage can be arranged through us and usually proves to be far cheaper to discuss your requirements and leave your possessions in New Zealand rather than have them arrive too early at your destination.

Moving to Australia
Remember special care must be taken when moving to Australia. Please ensure that your effects are clean of dirt and bugs etc. Please have a look at our link to Australian quarantine for tips, although our staff will assist you on packing.

We have also put together a great pre-move checklist to help you make sure everything is in order before and after your move.

Thank you for that good service. I shall recommend you to other mates.

Fully Trained Packers
All the packers we use are fully trained ensuring the best protection for your possessions. The Materials used are of the highest quality and meet all of the industry standards. You can see by our lower than average insurance premium due to our low claims ratio, that professional packing is the key to a successful move.

You may choose to pack yourself or may request additional packing if you are worried about a particular heirloom or piece. Tube wrapping, double wrapping, crating, and super enforced bubble wrapping are all available on request and our sales reps are happy to discuss these with you.

If you choose to pack yourself you can use your own materials (be careful, fruit and vegetable boxes are a quarantine risk!) or have ours couriered out to you. In both instances, a full inventory including labelling and numbering will be done on collection, ensuring your effects can be accounted for at every part of your move.

This will also help with your customs and quarantine clearances. If your effects have to be stored with us or are just waiting to board it is important to ensure warehousing is secure and bug free! The warehousing where your effects are stored prior to departure is fully alarmed and modern. You are more than welcome to visit and see for yourself.

I’m pleased that my stuff arrived well and in one piece.
Thank you for that good service. I shall recommend you to other mates.
Warm Regards,


Thank you for an excellent job done.
