Removals to New Zealand

If you are planning on moving to New Zealand, Britannia Bradshaw has the expertise and the local knowledge to tailor the move to your individual needs. Regardless whether you're moving to Wellington, Auckland, Christchurch, or somewhere else in New Zealand, Britannia Bradshaw can move you there.

We know that your removal is only part of your move overseas, and we provide information on New Zealand visas and getting settled in New Zealand.

Moving Personal Effects to New Zealand

Your goods can be imported duty free into New Zealand if you've owned them for at least 12 months prior to their importation. An inventory is required to move your goods, and Britannia Bradshaw will provide you with the correct customs forms that must be completed prior to the goods leaving the UK. You must also have a visa, or a valid passport that entitles you to residence in New Zealand.

Prohibitions and Restrictions

In general it is in your interest not to import the following items:

New Zealand removals transit times

Groupage or shared load consignments usually take eight to 14 weeks door to door. This can vary depending on volumes being shipped, customs or immigration delays and prevailing weather conditions. Sole use containers usually take six to eight weeks port to port, and there is a weekly service to all major ports.

Bar Coding

All Groupage consignments will be bar coded before they are loaded into the shipping container. This will ensure that no items are left at origin.

Moving your domestic pets to New Zealand

Britannia Bradshaw can recommend a specialised shipper of animals to assist you in sending your family pet(s) from home to home. They will coordinate all documentation and necessary veterinary procedures.
