5 star moving REVIEWS from our customers

We had NZ Van Lines move us from Wellington to Taranaki and we could not fault the service. From the time of getting a quote, to finishing the job (including collecting all empty boxes and paper packaging), all NZ Van Lines staff were professional, cared about what they were doing and fun to work with - exemplary service. We highly recommend using this company if you are moving.


From the first phone call, through to shipping out of New Zealand, NZ Van Lines was fast, efficient, and extremely pleasant through the whole process.


The guys were great! They handled our furniture with care and worked at a good pace. The items got from the south island to the north island with no damages, very happy with the service provided.


On time, well organised, excellent communication. So pleased we chose NZ Van Lines. On shifting out day we marveled at the strength and cooperation of the lads doing the heavy lifting. A very professional team. The driver of the big truck did an awesome job of maneuvering into our tiny road. Nothing phased them. Brilliant!


From initial quote to delivering of home contents NZ Vanlines were quick to respond, thorough, helpful, friendly and all items were delivered on time in perfect condition. Moving from rural north island to Deep South proved to be a streamlined and straight forward task thanks to Blake and the team in Tauranga.


I had a great experience with this company. Quick presentation of commercial proposal, best price in the market, great communication, well protected items, no damage to any of the items transported, punctuality during pick up and delivery, and the staff was always kind. I totally recommend this company.
