What Bristolians Say About 1st Move International


Bristol to New Zealand

We were extremely happy with our experience using 1st Move International to shift our belongings from Bristol to New Zealand. They were efficient in all they did and kept us well informed every step along the way. The agents they used in New Zealand were well chosen and were equally as good. Most important of all our belongings arrived promptly with no damage or breakages.
