Shipping Container Relocations Nationwide
We can assist you with the moving process to a new location anywhere in the country. We will handle your storage and removals between cities such as Christchurch and Auckland or Auckland to the Bay of Plenty.
For New Zealand house removals and relocations, a shipping container can make your life easier. They can help you avoid the additional costs of packing and unloading your possessions onto trucks. Typically, your possessions will be unloaded onto other trucks when you deal with traditional house removal companies. Our self-pack-and-load option means you have complete control of how your gear is loaded.
We have an extensive network for transporting container relocations across New Zealand. We utilise road, sea, and rail to bring you the most cost-effective price possible. We will deliver the empty unit to your house for you to fill at your own pace. Once everything is loaded, we will collect it using a suitable truck and deliver it to your end destination. If you take advantage of the leasing option, we will retrieve the container and return it to our depot.
