Removals to New Zealand
If you are planning on moving to New Zealand, we have the expertise and knowledge to ensure your move is as stress-free as possible. Wherever you are moving to in New Zealand; Wellington, Auckland, Christchurch, or anywhere else, Britannia Goodwins can take you there.
Your removal is only part of your move to New Zealand, so we have a bit of information to help you along the way, including New Zealand visas and getting settled in New Zealand.
Customs Clearance - It normally takes about 10 to 15 days for customs clearance and delivery. This can, of course, be impacted or changed by government policy, the inspection of goods, etc.
Packing & Delivery - Our specially trained removal men will pack and wrap your items to ensure that they are transported safely to your final destination.
Additional removal services – Should you require additional removal services when moving to New Zealand, we are authorised to provide comprehensive insurance, in addition to being able to arrange international storage or pet transport.
Prohibitions and Restrictions
In general it is in your interest not to import the following items:
- Firearms & ammunition
- Inflammable goods & substances
- Plants & plant material
- Foodstuffs, perishables or otherwise
- Narcotics and dangerous goods
- Offensive materials
- Alcohol & Tobacco
Moving your household goods to New Zealand
Your household goods can usually be imported duty free into New Zealand if you've owned them for at least 12 months prior to being imported. An inventory is required to move your belongings, and we'll provide you with the correct customs forms to be completed prior to export. Don't forget - you'll also need to have a valid visa or passport which entitles you to residence in New Zealand.
New Zealand removal transit times
Groupage or shared load consignments usually take eight to 14 weeks door-to-door. This can vary depending on volumes being shipped, customs or immigration delays and weather conditions. Containers for sole use usually take six to eight weeks port-to-port, with weekly service to all major ports in New Zealand.
Moving your pets to New Zealand
We can recommend a specialised shipper of animals to assist you in sending your family pets to your new home in New Zealand. They will coordinate all documentation and necessary veterinary procedures, to help your pet have a reduced-stress experience in moving abroad.

How are our appointments carried out
In the current times you might prefer that we don't visit your house in person to carry out a survey. This is fully understandable and we can just as easily undertake the survey by video call, using whatever method you're comfortable with, usually FaceTime or WhatsApp.

Helpful and accommodating
I have completed the online survey but also wanted to thank you for the support you gave me in arranging my house move. At all times you were very helpful and accommodating especially when sorting the move down to Sussex.
I would like to thank Paul and Alan who packed me up on 31/03/2021 and Darren S, Darren G, Rob and Ian who travelled to Sussex and unpacked us. They were all great workers and very thoughtful throughout.
Thank you all again.Jane CapeyStafford
Appreciated everyone being so efficient at ensuring social distancing
We had John, Kim and Rob to pack our things and Lee and the team to do the removals. Everyone was so friendly and did such a great job, and we really appreciated everyone being so efficient at ensuring social distancing too as we have a very young baby who we are trying to shield. Everyone also treated our belongings with such respect which we really appreciated after a bad experience with a different removals company previously resulted in lots of our things being damaged.
Used the company because of good online reviews and great service from staff when we initially contacted with an enquiry.
Comments regarding your initial enquiry - Received a response to my initial enquiry really quickly and had all my questions answered.Ruth PicklesStafford
A credit to your company
I am sending a quick email to say thank you so much for the teams work in moving us these past few days. It was absolutely fantastic and they felt like friends we had known for years not days.
Would you kindly thank each of them individually from us please... Clive, Lee, Paul, Alan and Dan.They truly were a credit to your company and we really cannot thank them enough.
Once again, thank you.David SingletonStafford
The A team were fantastic. They remembered the children's names and they made us at ease all day. They were amazing. Initial enquiry was very easy to deal with and professional service.Simon OlphinStafford
