Moving to New Zealand? And need an international removal company specialising in shipping and International removals to New Zealand.  

We arrange shipping and international removals to the major New Zealand ports in Auckland, Christchurch, Napier, Nelson, New Plymouth, Port Chalmers, Tauranga, Timaru and Wellington.

Whether you are shipping just excess luggage, a dozen or so boxes or have a full household to move to New Zealand Imove has the service to assist you. We can provide a share a container service or your own dedicated container for shipping to New Zealand. For urgent items we offer an air freight service. All our quotes are based on a door to door delivery and include customs clearance. 

Sole Use Container and Share a Container Removals to New Zealand:

When moving to New Zealand, you will have the choice of either shipping your goods in a sole use dedicated container or by a share a container service. The service chosen largely depends on the volume of the goods to be shipped to New Zealand measured in either cubic feet or cubic meters.

Generally if you are shipping all of the contents of a 3, 4 or 5 bed house you will need either a 20’ or 40’ shipping container.  The contents of smaller properties can be shipped on a share a container service (sometimes called a part load service) or in a sole use dedicated container.

An average sized single garage stacked top to bottom front to back will hold as much as a 20’ container, similarly an average size double garage will hold as much as a 40’ container.

Sole Use Container.
Depending upon the volume of the goods you want to move to New Zealand we will order a 20’ 40’ or 40’ high cube shipping container. With international removals to New Zealand, packing will take from two to four days at your residence and the container loaded on the final packing day. The shipping container will normally be loaded at your residence (access permitting) then transported to the port to be shipped. On arrival in New Zealand your shipment will be customs cleared and arrangements made to deliver to your new home in New Zealand, the container will be unloaded, the furniture unwrapped and the waste packing materials disposed of.  Transit time for a sole use container will be 4 - 10 week door to door when moving to New Zealand..

Share a Container.
A shared container service is also referred to as a groupage service, or part load. If you have less than a full container load, you can ship your belongings to New Zealand using a groupage service. You will only pay for the space your goods take up in the container. Costs are there less than a full container load, as all costs are shared amongst the shippers in the container. You should allow a transit time of 8 – 12 week door to door.

Export Packing Service:
An important part of your international removals to New Zealand is the specialist export packing and wrapping service we provide. When moving to New Zealand, our skilled export packers will ensure your goods arrive in the exact same condition they left you, no matter how far they have travelled. Take a look at our export packing gallery here.

Your removals to New Zealand depending upon the service chosen will take 7 - 9 weeks for sole use containers and 8 -12 weeks for share container removals to New Zealand.

IMOVE have a network of trusted agents in New Zealand who will deal with local customs clearance, the delivery, unpacking and unwrapping of your furniture and personal effects removal to New Zealand.

I was impressed by the communication. IMove dealt with all my queries and requests promptly and efficiently. The crew contacted me directly to advise on their arrival and kept to time. All together a good service and reasonably priced. Thank you.
We recently used Imove International to move all of our household items from UK to Thailand, and found the entire process from initial quote to final delivery very easy. We had a sole use 20ft container, which was perfect for the contents of our 2 bedroom house. The chap who came to do the quote was able to reassure us that the container lorry would be able to reach our house ok, as that was one of our worries. The 2 man packing team arrived at 8:30am on the Thursday and set about wrapping and boxing everything. I can't speak highly enough about how hard they worked that day - it was virtually impossible to get them to stop for a tea break. The only thing it would have been useful to know in advance at that stage was that they wanted us to remove the pedals from our 4 bicycles, and turn the handlebars so that they were in line with the wheels, but it was sorted in a matter of minutes. The following day a 3 man team turned up and completed the packing. The lorry was due a 12:00, but in fact got delayed until about 3:00pm. As the weather was good, the lads moved everything out on to the front drive in the meantime, in order to make the loading faster. I had asked the neighbours to leave the communal parking area free for the day, which made it much easier for the lorry to manoeuvre when it arrived. The loading only took about 30 minutes, and we waved goodbye to our goods, en route to Felixstowe Docks. The thing that amazed me most was that there was not a single scuff mark left on the internal walls of our newly decorated house! Imove had provided us with a link to a web portal which had all the details of our shipment updated on it, including estimated arrival date in Thailand. It also included the name of the ship our container was on, and I was delighted to discover a web site (https://www.marinetraffic.com) where I could track it's progress in real time. (Note to Imove - perhaps you could add that link to your web portal?). About a week before it was due to arrive in Thailand the agent at this end contacted us and talked us through all the paperwork necessary for customs clearance at this end. The ship arrived exactly on schedule, and we visited the agent to drop off passports, ID cards, etc that they needed to clear the shipment with customs. That went very smoothly, and when we returned to the agent to collect our documents we got to meet the driver who was going to deliver the shipment to our house in northern Thailand - a 700km journey. Luckily I was able to give him our exact location on Google Maps, which avoided the hassle of trying to explain a rather obscure location. The lorry arrived exactly on schedule, at 8:30 on a Sunday morning, and again it only took the 4 lads about 30 minutes to unload it. They did offer to unpack everything and remove all the packing materials, but we declined that, as most of our stuff will probably remain in boxes for the next few months while we build a new house here. So, all in all it was a very simple process, and very professionally managed.
The crew worked extra hard and returned on a Sunday to finish our packing. I can't thank them enough. Please feel free to select IMove with confidence. My bit of guidance or recommendation is to sort out the insurance ASAP.
