International Moving

Are you thinking about moving overseas and starting your life over again? It might be for work, family or personal reasons, or you might just want to move somewhere that’s closer to the beach. No matter your reasons, an international relocation is a big deal, and there’s an awful lot to sort out. When you’re moving overseas, you’ll want to make sure you arrive with a clear head, free of stress, whether you’re moving across the Tasman or somewhere on the other side of the world.

If you attempt to do the whole move yourself, it’s unlikely that you’ll achieve it without at least something causing you a great deal of stress. You’ll have so much weight on your shoulders that it’s virtually impossible to enjoy yourself before, during, and after the move occurs. Instead of feeling like you’re making a fresh start, you’ll resent the move because it ended up causing you so much trouble. That’s one of many reasons why Allied is on hand to help out.

We take care of every aspect of your relocation, so you can relax and enjoy yourself in your old home, as well as do the same when you get into your new one. With over 600 locations around the world, we can help you to move virtually anywhere with ease. Drawing on New Zealand moving experience dating back to the 1980s, we’ve done it all before, so we know what to expect through every step of the process.


Moving with the Experts

Our priority when you move with Allied is that you have a smooth transition to your new home, wherever that may be. We back-up our international moving expertise with global resources, an international tracking service and a global service charter – that’s the Allied Advantage! From a specialised in-house insurance team and dedicated, secure storage facilities around the globe, you don’t need to complicate an already tricky international relocation by adding third parties to the mix. We can do it all ourselves.

Your Move Consultant will inform you about what you need based on where you’re going, who you’re going with, how many of your personal items you’re taking with you and how quickly you need everything organised. We take care of you, so you can focus on the important things, like making sure your family knows what’s going on, and that your old home is in a great condition to be sold.

Moving from Auckland to Singapore, Nelson to New York or Wellington to London with Allied is a breeze. Make sure you get in touch with our friendly team today on 0800 255 433 to start planning your move overseas.

Removals Insurance

Despite being renowned as The Careful Movers, there are certain risks involved in any household move. Whether you’re moving across the street, around the corner or around the globe, it goes without saying, there are sometimes circumstances outside of our control which is why the team at Allied recommend utilising removals insurance for your international move. Your possessions are important to you and our international movers do everything we can to ensure you precious cargo is packed, sorted, stored and transported safely and securely, but it is important to remember moving anything over long distances increases the risk of something going amiss. That is where our transit insurance service comes in handy to mitigating risk for Kiwis moving overseas.

Award winning international movers

As the leading provider of International moving services around the world Allied are the international removalists team you can trust to deliver your effects safely. With a network of over 600 global locations, we have helped over 160,000 customers move overseas over the past 10 years alone!

Moving you overseas the right way

Our highest priority during international moving is to ensure that you have a smooth transition to your new home – no matter where that might be. Allied backs up our international moving expertise with our global resources, international tracking service and global service charter – that’s the Allied Advantage!

We use the highest grade packing materials for your belongings, ranging from delicate books that need professional attention to wrapping highly polished furniture and antiques to ensure they remain in pristine condition.

There’s a range of goods and products that can be utilised so that your precious items are looked after when you’re making the move. Allied also recognises the necessities in a home and the first things that may be required upon arrival at your new destination.

That’s why there is always a priority box, which is the last packed, and the first unpacked. Inside, you can put things like the keys to a car or house, the television remotes, special toys for children or medical equipment that needs to be set up without delay.

When you reach your final destination, it’s important that you can gel into your new residence as quickly as possible. By having the most useful items readily available as soon as you arrive, there will be at least some weight lifted from your shoulders, and that’s got to be a good thing.

You can also have these particular items shipped by air instead of by sea. This is a much faster way to freight goods, and while it is a little more expensive, it’s all designed to help your first few days in your new home be more relaxing. Recommended items for this include: Clothing, Linen, Bedding, Personal effects, and necessary electronics.

With Allied’s international removalists, you should feel prepared, not overwhelmed with your relocation. It’s a new chapter in your life, and it should be exciting!

Professional international moving services anywhere in the world

Whether you’re moving or relocating from Auckland to New York, Wellington to Singapore, Dunedin to London or Christchurch to Canada, let Allied help you with your international relocation. After all, our goal has been to make the move simple and efficient with every international moving experience we’ve managed for almost 400 years!

Moving overseas does have its risks with the sheer amount of distance and logistical effort required to transport household effects from one side of the world to the other. This is why Allied Moving Services has also developed a specialised Transit and Storage policy to give you total peace of mind. In the rare instance of a claim, Allied has an internal insurance centre so you can rest assured there won’t be any external communications or issues. If something does occur, our team will deal with the claim themselves.

It doesn’t matter where you’re moving to the Allied team, because with years of experience and support, your Move Consultant is on hand at all times to make sure you have all the information you need. It’s their job to get you there smoothly, and while you might feel the stress building up occasionally, that’s perfectly natural. It’s a big change, and a quick chat with your Move Consultant to check in about what the next step is could set your mind at ease.

Taking care of the forms

When transporting personal effects around the world, customs forms and other declarations need to be sorted out – both departing from and entering into a region. Typically, people are unsure how to handle this paperwork, so Allied will advise you.

Allied Moving Services is accredited to the largest international industry association FAIM-FIDI to ensure your total peace of mind and to meet all the promises we make.

We have an experienced and professional international team to guide you through every step of the removal process, so contact us today on 0800 255 433. Relax, and let us carry the load.
