Local Movers

When looking for a local moving company to assist with your furniture removal requirements, some people may not think of Allied Pickfords as a local moving company. The truth is, no one is better equipped to provide you with local moving services! Allied Pickfords has almost 400 years of local moving experience from around the globe to draw upon and assist you with your local move within New Zealand.

Local moving is not always as straight forward and can be the trickiest to organise without proper thought and consideration. Many things can impact your local move with settlement dates, storage requirements and the amount of packing that is often underestimated when moving across town. We pride ourselves on being the careful movers when it comes to moving boxes and household furniture in your local areas.

Whether moving locally from across the street or around the corner, our professional and trained moving staff are dedicated to ensure your removal is in careful hands. Allied Pickfords can provide a range of specialised moving packages which are cost effective and able to be customised to each individual’s requirements. There can be so many different items that need specialist attention – it could be an antique sideboard, a valuable instrument or an old family heirloom that just doesn’t fit in your average packing box.

We have a huge range of moving options that you can choose from, and packaging to suit virtually every size and shape of item you have lying about. No matter how far you’re moving, our goal is to make sure everything you own is removed and delivered safely. Allied Pickfords provides a door-to-door service that includes supplying cartons, packing, unpacking, loading, transport and delivery. Allied Pickfords also offers short-term or long-term storage solutions and transit insurance services, ensuring a complete relocation package that will best suit your interisland moving requirements. We offer hourly rates or fixed price options to ensure you know exactly what the charges will be with no hidden extras in between.

So relax and let Allied Pickfords carry the load! To see a list of our office locations click here.

“We really are happy with what you did for us”

I just wanted to say a big thank you to Allied Pickfords for doing an amazing job in moving our goods safely, from Auckland to Dunedin. From the very beginning, you were quick to respond to our query and also kept in touch.  Your Dunedin office were also quick to ring us when they were going to deliver and when they ran late, also rang to apologise and gave us another time. We really are happy with what you did for us and would, and will, certainly recommend your company to anyone who is thinking of moving.
