International Moving Costs for New Zealand

At Pinnacle Removals, we offer a number of moving options for New Zealand. If you are looking for ways to save money when moving to New Zealand, talk to your move coordinator about full and part loads to New Zealand to see what would be the best option for your budget.

Additionally, the amount of time it takes to move to New Zealand and the international shipping costs of moving to New Zealand will be affected by whether you choose air freight to New Zealand or sea freight to New Zealand. The cost of shipping items to New Zealand will be affected by the volume and scope of belongings you choose to transport and whether you would need any specialist shipping services to transport items such as antiques internationally.

Full or Part Load Removals to New Zealand

Our small loads, also known as shared loads or groupage to New Zealand are ideal if you only have a few boxes to transport. Shared loads to New Zealand can be ideal for international moves as the long distance often means that movers choose to limit the quantity of personal belongings they choose to transport overseas.

By choosing part load shipping, your belongings will be combined with other households in a high capacity container to save time and reduce transport costs.

With our international freight service options, you can choose from full or part load removals to New Zealand. We offer competitive pricing for large and small removals so whether you’re planning a full house removal to New Zealand or you just need to send a few boxes, our full and partial load moving service will be right for you.

Or can you fill a container? 

Alternatively, Pinnacle Removals also offers full-load moves to New Zealand. These can be ideal if you are moving to New Zealand permanently and would like a full house removal to New Zealand. Also known as FCL shipping, this is the more costly method of moving but allows for more space to transport all of your household possessions. A full 20 ft container is usually enough for a typical 2-bed home.

Removals to New Zealand FAQ's

How Moving to New Zealand Works

When preparing for your move to New Zealand, our professional team can help you to prepare. Whether you are moving furniture to New Zealand as part of a full house move or moving just a few boxes, we can help. In order to move to New Zealand, UK nationals will typically need to apply for a Residence Visa. This will allow you to work, study or own a business in New Zealand. It is best to apply for this before arranging your move to New Zealand to avoid any costly delays. Once you’ve had a residence visa for more than two years, you may be eligible to apply for a Permanent Resident Visa. Once you’ve made your initial enquiry with us, your newly assigned Move Coordinator will discuss all applicable moving requirements with you and ensure you are aware of any specific New Zealand customs requirements that might affect your move. We’ll also conduct a thorough moving survey to help create your New Zealand moving quote. This can be conducted through either a home visit moving quote or a video survey in order to assess and measure your belongings and advise on the costs of moving your belongings to New Zealand from the UK. If you are aware of any access issues for your new home such as narrow or remote roads or other obstacles, it is best to mention this to your Move Coordinator at this stage so they can plan accordingly. Additionally, some more rural locations can be hard to access in New Zealand, your move specialist may discuss move options depending on the time of year you will be moving.
