Moving to New Zealand

New Zealand continues to rank highly on the list of choices for expatriates who make the bold decision to emigrate to a new life – whether for career, family or retirement reasons. Made up of the main North and South islands and the lesser known 600 smaller islands New Zealand remains a poplar destination for a new life. The most populated city is Auckland with a population of over 1.5 million also home to the largest Polynesian population in the world. The capital city Wellington is much smaller with just over 400,000 residents. Christchurch on the South Island also has a population of around 400,000 residents the third largest city in New Zealand.

Making Your Move to New Zealand Easier

Without a doubt, a successful relocation to the other side of the world entails thorough preparation, planning and support. At Brycelands, we provide a professional removals service to destinations throughout New Zealand, working in conjunction with our partner network of accredited New Zealand removals companies.

If you plan to move to New Zealand, your options include a complete container load for your individual use, or groupage, i.e. shared container services. Additionally, some customers opt for short or long-term storage to simplify the logistics.

Taking Care of Your Transition

When moving to New Zealand, your belongings will be shipped in secure metal containers, fully tracked while in transit. Whether you select an individual container or groupage, both options are subject to the standard quarantine process on arrival. All goods received via air and seaports will be inspected by MAF Biosecurity to ensure that nothing will endanger national fauna and flora, or present risks to the country’s agriculture. Any items deemed unsuitable may be fumigated, treated or destroyed – and the cost passed on.

Subsequently, we arrange for you to receive the appropriate customs forms to ease clearance and expedite delivery of your possessions to your new home in New Zealand. Typically. A declaration of the contents of your household goods (or personal effects) will have to be provided. Most large consignments of household goods contain some items that will need inspection.

What People Say

Feefo Ratings
Aaron and the team were excellent. So quick and careful. No damage at all. They made the day so easy. We were so impressed by them. And they were also really nice guys and put us totally at ease on what can easily be a stressful day. Would not hesitate for a second to recommend you to others.
JS, So quick and careful
I wanted to say how absolutely delighted we were with our move on Thursday. In spite of the lorry being too long to back up the drive the team set about transferring everything to the house by constantly crossing the road.
Mike Carpenter, Stevenage
I just wanted to thank you for your brilliant service! Dave and the team have been the most professional people we have ever worked with. Aside from being brilliant at their jobs, they are so personable, supportive and just a joy to have around. What I was expecting to be a horrendously stressful experience has turned out to be fine. While moving is never fun, I’m just grateful that they are here helping us through it. I really can’t praise them enough.
J Roberts, Hertfordshire
I used Brycelands for a move this week. I have been really impressed with the service from day 1 and the crew that arrived on the day were absolutely fantastic – friendly, calm and clearly knew what they were doing.

Please could you pass on my thanks to the team who helped with our move on Friday, they were professional, yet good humoured and helped what is a very stressful time by exceeding our expectations of how a house move can go.
David Jones, Welwyn Garden City
Your guys were exemplary in pretty well every aspect of our move. Considering it snowed the night before we were to move, they arrived in good spirits and did everything we asked with humour, courtesy and efficiency leaving the house clean and tidy.
