christchurch moving company reviews

The Christchurch team were excellent in moving us into our new home. Friendly and professional plus very careful with our belongings on the big day


Our experience with the whole ChCh team was outstanding and set a high level of advice, great communication and very pleasant people to have in our home and all of the above was certainly true of the team who cared for us on arrival of our household goods in Auckland,
We cannot recommend more highly.

Bob and Delly

Moved a container from Canada to NZ during Covid. Challenging at both ends but NV Van Lines talked us through it, kept in regular touch, and coordinated the whole processes as good as it could have been done. The crew unloading at the NZ end, led by Charlie, were quick and friendly. Many thanks!


I recently shifted from Whangarei to Christchurch, the teams in Whg and Chch were absolutely fantastic, very friendly and super efficient. My house lot of furniture arrived on schedule, 8 days from Whg to Chch. Items were placed in my house upon arrival and even the beds were put together for me. I would highly recommend NZ Van Lines. Thanks to both teams for an uneventful shift. 🙂
