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.

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.

We used them again to move our items out of storage to our new property and will use them again

They were very good and courteous. Both the lads were very good , friendly and couldn’t do enough for us - well done to them both

They had the day available for when we wanted to move, and we used them again to move our items out of store to our new property and will use them again later on in the month to move out of our rental property.
