Before the moving container arrives

Prior to your moving container arriving at your home for loading, it's a good idea to have a clean-out of rarely used items. Consider hiring a skip while you are clearing out and packing up, it will make life easier being able to easily get rid of excess rubbish. Decluttering your home of items that you no longer need or use will ensure that you are not paying to transport items unnecessarily. Whether you're moving from Auckland to Christchurch or moving from Wellington to Dunedin, taking on-board some of our expert removalist advice and tips will help you get your moving container packed efficiently, safely and securely. 

Packaging materials for your New Zealand-wide move

To load a self pack moving container correctly, it is recommended that you use the proper packaging equipment for the job. We recommend using furniture blankets, a furniture trolley for loading and unloading the container, rope for tying your household furniture in place inside the container and good quality sturdy cardboard boxes. These items are all readily available at a specialty packing materials company such as PAK-IT-YOURSELF or Bunnings also has an excellent range of packing materials for moving house.
