household removal

One thing that can usually be said about moving day and agreed by everyone is that you probably want to forget it as fast as possible once it’s done.

If you’re to achieve that, what you won’t want to find is that for days, weeks and months afterwards, you’re embroiled in legal disputes and squabbling over what you removed from your old property or what the ex-owners removed from your new home. Don’t underestimate how ‘touchy’ people can get over these things, even when small sums of money are involved. (more…)

Moving Home

In looking back through our recent blogs, we couldn’t help but notice how they’re largely full of sound advice of the ‘how to avoid problems or deal with them if they arise’ type.

That’s all well and good plus highly laudable – and we hope you find them useful. Even so, to put it bluntly, while they’re full of great tips, read together they’re hardly likely to encourage you to look forward to household removals!

So, we thought we’d redress the balance here a little and point out some facts based upon our extensive experience. (more…)

Christchurch Removals NZ

We regularly handle motorcycles and lawnmowers in our household removals.

In one sense, they’re no problem for us at all.  They’re usually not massively large or heavy, though if you have a full-blown agricultural mower do please let us know in advance so we can check its dimensions and weight.

However, we will typically ask you to ensure though that your mower or bike has been fully drained down of fuel and oil.  There are two reasons for this: (more…)

Christchurch Removals NZ

We’re regularly asked questions on this one. So, we’d like to share some of them here.

Will your insurance cover me against all risks?

No. To explain:-

Our own standard insurance exists to cover our liabilities to you and the general public.  It will not cover you if, say, you need to ask us to put your load into storage at the last moment because your new property isn’t ready. (more…)

household removal

The vast majority of removals into or out of rented property go smoothly and without any hitches in terms of issues arising between tenants and landlords.

Unfortunately though, there are exceptions and in our experience, these are more commonplace when leaving a property as opposed to when moving in.

Those disputes tend to arise in a relatively small number of areas when vacating a property that somebody else owns: (more…)

Preparing for an Office Move

Although we have touched on this before, we make no apologies for issuing a few key points by way of a reminder about potential employee-related issues if you’re moving offices.

Through our extensive experience as professional office removals experts, we know that:

•  Aspects of your employee liability cover may be at risk if you ask your employees to help with packing and moving items as part of an office move. (more…)

Christchurch furniture removals

Here at Christchurch Removals, we know a thing or two about packing!

So, here we’ll demolish a few myths you might have encountered in this area.

• You can’t safely transport glass.

Yes you can!  It does need to be treated with great respect though and professionally packed.  True, old thin panes of glass are more of a challenge than modern safety glass but we can cope with them too. (more…)

Christchurch Relocation Team

It’s sometimes the case that we need a little mechanical lifting assistance to get something heavy into a vehicle – and that’s where a tail-lift vehicle might be required.
This is usually required during furniture removals where there’s a single object that’s too heavy to lift manually – or at least to do so safely. Examples that come to mind include pianos, some large wardrobes, large stone garden ornaments and so on. (more…)


When we’ve agreed a delivery date with you, you can be sure that we will have taken certain professional steps to check that all will be well in terms of meeting our commitment.

However, there may be odd things that can catch us out and accessing your address ‘on the day’ is one such. (more…)

fabric packing

If you are doing your own packing, we draw your attention to the potential need to cover your fabric items thoroughly with an impermeable layer of protection.

That probably sounds like something of a mouthful but it’s quite straightforward. (more…)
