we're #1 for inter-city moving!

New Zealand Van Lines have over 35 years’ experience in moving families and individuals around New Zealand.

Whether you’re moving from the bustling city centre of Auckland for a quieter life in Tauranga or Blenheim, or trading in life in the country’s capital, Wellington, for the wide-open spaces of Queenstown or the Hawke’s Bay, NZ Van Lines provides a seamless door-to-door relocation service nationwide.

Established in 1986, New Zealand Van Lines today is one of the largest moving companies in the country. With 13 branches from Whangarei in the North to Invercargill in the South, we’re well-placed to assist with all aspects of moving house throughout Aotearoa.

New Zealand Van Lines has the biggest and most modern fleet on the road! We specialise in super-sized long-distance moves, our trucks and B-train container configurations can hold up to three full house loads in one journey. We are committed to an environmentally sustainable future and have initiated an aggressive fleet upgrade by replacing 25 trucks with new clean burning units. The new trucks meet EURO 6 environmental regulations. EURO 6 technology has a rigorous focus on environmental conservation, effectiveness, and performance.

There are many factors that make for a successful long-distance move and deciding on which company to entrust with your move is no easy task. NZ Van Lines are one of the few remaining companies with a dedicated long-distance fleet, providing a true door-to-door service.

professional moving staff

When you move with New Zealand Van Lines, a dedicated Move Manager will guide you through the entire intercity move process, coordinating the packing and uplift, container loading, transport, storage, and delivery to your new residence.

NZ Van Lines has highly trained furniture movers and packers, specialising in long distance moving which ensures we can cover any intercity move, across the country.


With our fleet of purpose build furniture transport carriers utilising our on-road linehaul network providing true flexibility without reliance on the rail network or coastal shipping, we have your move covered without the unreliability of third parties.

This is the ideal service catering, especially for larger moves providing a point-to-point service. Our most popular routes include Auckland to Wellington, Auckland to Nelson, Auckland to Christchurch, Auckland to Wanaka, Auckland to Queenstown and the Central Otago region.

Short and long term STORAGE


Our storage facilities rank among the best in the world! We have over 4000 storage modules available in secure company managed facilities, across all major New Zealand cities and regions.

In addition to storing household items we can securely store: cars, motorbikes, camper vans and boats.


In the same way that you have contents insurance in your own home, it makes sense to insure your belongings for transit or storage. 

NZ Van Lines provide a complete range of transit insurance options, while your possessions are under our care. You will have full protection for damages, partial or total loss, from the moment our packers arrive at your home, until you take delivery and are unpacked, at your destination.



We don’t just move and store household goods. New Zealand Van Lines provide a full-service moving experience including pet moving, motor vehicle transportation, house cleaning, the specialised packing and crating of antiques and artwork, grand piano moving, settlement services, office relocations and more.
