Planning Your Move
On instruction World Moving will arrange for our local
representative to contact you to arrange a survey and prepare a
quotation for your move. The quotation will be completed on a door to
door basis and will include all packing, collection and transportation
charges to your new home in New Zealand. Should you not have a residence
arranged when your effects are cleared and ready for delivery, then
World Moving will hold your consignment, in temporary storage until
delivery is required.
Prior to the survey, World Moving will contact you
directly to discuss your individual requirements for both your actual
move and any additional services or information you may require for your
arrival in New Zealand. World Moving will maintain direct contact with
you throughout your relocation
It’s never too early to prepare for your move, and even
though our packers are experts in International packing, it is still a
good idea to start sorting out the essentials well in advance.
If it is a preference of yours to pack some of your own
personal items, then you must provide a detailed inventory to accompany
these items for both customs and insurance purposes.
It is a good idea to clear attics, garages, etc. of
items not being included in your shipment prior to your moving day.
Garage or car boot sales or the placing of an advert in a local
newspaper are successful ways of achieving this.
If you have a difficult access, or live in an apartment
block, arrangements with the assistance of our local representative,
will need to be made prior to the moving day.
Light clothing and bedding, can be transported in empty
drawers and cupboards and will assist in reducing your overall volume,
although it is important not to overload these items, as they will need
to be carried at some stage.
New Zealand has strict quarantine regulations, so it is
essential that all items that have come into contact with soil, have
been well cleaned prior to packing. Items such as tents, garden
furniture, bicycles etc. will attract the attention of the Quarantine
authorities. Please also ensure that the vacuum cleaner bag is removed
prior to packing.
Please ensure that items such as passports, air-tickets,
etc. are kept in a safe place during the packing process so that they do
not accidentally end up being packed with your household effects.
Marine / Transit Insurance
All due care and attention will be taken in the packing
and transportation of your possessions, but it is wise to insure your
shipment to full destination replacement value.
The packing crew will arrive on the pre-booked day to
commence the export packing of you effects. The size and nature of your
effects will determine the length of time needed to complete the packing
Your effects will be export packed on site in accordance
with the agreed packing list prepared during the pre-move survey. The
very best available packaging materials will be used to ensure a safe
transportation of your effects.
Each package will be clearly labelled with a description
of contents, your name, reference and destination.
On the completion of packing a detailed inventory will
be completed. A copy of which will accompany your effects, with one
being retained for your records.
