1st Move International for weekly removals and Shipping UK to New Zealand

Your personal belongings and private possessions are vitally important to you as an individual. Our business model is based on this one simple fact.

So, from the moment you ask us for a shipping quote to the point where you open up your possessions in New Zealand, we are with you every step of the way.

Our years of experience in shipping goods to New Zealand, in fact anywhere in world, has taught us that the process must begin with protecting your household goods for the rigours of the international moving process.

Over 15 years ago we pioneered a rather unique way of ensuring we minimise, at all costs, the chances of damage to your personal effects. Simply wrapping with paper and sharing it with other goods inside a shipping container like other movers is not an option. New Zealand is a long way and your household goods deserve better. Check out the video below to see exactly how we pack for your move.
