Relocation by Road
Trans International offers relocations anywhere in New Zealand by road in carpet lined furniture pantechnicons. We can pack all small items or you can pack yourselves.
Televisions, pictures are internationally wrapped using our three tier transit bubble and crating of those very fragile items is available. All soft furnishings such as mattresses, lounge suites are wrapped in heavy duty PVC mattress bags to avoid scuffing. The remainder of the furniture is wrapped in furniture pads.
A comprehensive inventory is done on all long distance relocations. This inventory includes a condition report of all items for your protection. Your belongings are checked on to the vehicle and off the vehicle using this inventory and you are asked to sign off the inventory at origin and destination.
Relocation by Sea
Since the deregulation of coastal shipping in 1995 the option of shipping in containers from Auckland to South Island ports has become more viable.
This transport mode has a longer transit time 7-14 days but this can be advantageous as it can give you time to find a house or a chance to have a holiday on your way south.
Trans International specialises in this method using its international packers to pack and load your belongings to ensure a safe transit.
We internationally wrap key furniture items such as rimu dining tables, bedroom furniture etc and use furniture pads for the remaining furniture.
An advantage of coastal shipping is that if short term storage is required your goods can remain in the container which avoids unnecesary handling and associated costs.
General Information on Domestic Moves
With all our domestic moves we unwrap any furniture packed by us, reassemble items dismantled by us and remove the used packing material.
As part of our service we unpack all cartons on to the nearest available flat surface, eg bench tops, table tops etc. If you prefer, we can leave the cartons to you to unpack and we will return to collect the cartons paper etc at a later date as long as you live in close proximity to a major urban centre.
In all domestic moves we ask you to sign a contract for your protection and ours. We do offer comprehensive transit insurance, please refer to our insurance page.
On local moves, we offer you the choice of fixed price move or hourly rate moves. Please contact us for rates or an obligation free quote.
