1. When should I contact Container Relocations?
As soon as you know you are going to move house, start contacting household movers for ballparks. Once you have your movers quotes, get in touch with Container Relocations again (as we've probably got one of the best value moving quotes on the table!) and we'll book in your move. As we own our containers and can help you with storage, unlike other household movers we can organise local and nationwide moves within a few working days. Overseas removals may take more time depending on shipping schedules.

2. How do I get a quotation?
To get a quotation from Container Relocations, either call free phone on 0800 00 55 55 (from within NZ only) or apply online. You will be asked to supply a inventory of the goods for moving in order for us to supply the best sized container and appropriate amount and type of packing materials.
