Ok, the decision has been made, you’re moving to New Zealand. What next?
Firstly you will need to decide on what you will and will not be taking. Whether to ship your household goods alone or whether you want to also ship your car, motorbike, caravan, boat etc. This will determine whether you will need a 20’ or 40’ container or more.
Secondly, you will need to decide on your budget, whether you want to handle your international move to New Zealand on the cheap by loading your own container and save thousands of your hard earned dollars or whether you prefer the red carpet service offered by the larger international movers who, by and large, would offer you a great service but their primary motivation is how your hard earned savings would shape their bottom line.
Once upon a time we too offered the red carpet service but back in 2013 in the “post GFC” period and with hard earned cash still closely guarded, we found clients did not want to spend unnecessarily on a grudge purchase such as an international move and were more open to the idea of saving thousands of dollars by loading their own containers.
Since then our business model has changed radically, we offer our clients the opportunity to self-pack their household goods and vehicles into containers positioned on their private property. In doing so you have complete control over the entire container loading process and you don’t need to worry about random strangers roaming through your home and personal belongings.
Since 2013 we have assisted hundreds of clients move to New Zealand from Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide on a shoestring budget. The money they have saved in Australia they have been able to spend on settling into their new homes in New Zealand.
Our model is very simple and it’s winning formula that works on the basis of “the more you do, the more you save”. Why pay an international mover lots of cash for something you can do and probably do better?
Our next instalment will focus on the logistics process, providing you with a clear understanding of how easy it will be for you to save thousands of dollars, literally!
