Local Moving

When you are moving around the corner there is sometimes a temptation to gravitate towards a DIY move. Renting a truck and grabbing some mates to help you do some heavy lifting – sounds easy right? We see many clients that get stuck with this option as they do not have all the necessary resources or equipment they require when moving their heavy and bulky furniture items. Not only does this cause undue stress and risk their goods with potential damages but it often delays the move and can add unnecessary costs and headaches! When you are engaging the moving service of a professional moving company such as Allied Pickfords Christchurch you will have the comfort of knowing that we will wrap and protect all your furniture items and have the right resources to complete the move without the stress and pain of the DIY option.

Are you moving house in Christchurch?

Christchurch is well known for being the “Garden City” and full of historic architecture and sandstone buildings from its English heritage. It is the largest city on the South Island and home to over 300,000 residents in the Canterbury district.

It’s an exciting time to move house in Christchurch – after the 2010-11 earthquakes, one of the largest city rebuilds ever is in the works. Christchurch will be a revolutionary city, with most of the rebuilt areas featuring earthquake-proof frames and materials.

Christchurch’s new home designs will build on the beautiful Avon river and park developments with the city organised into specific precincts including sports and entertainment, medical, commercial, shopping and residential.

Individuals and families moving house in Christchurch during the time of the rebuilding process will see the whole landscape change before their eyes, be part of the historic rebuild and witness the renewal of an exciting and beautiful new city. In the city centre there are a vast selection of restaurants, theatres and galleries to explore when you move to Christchurch. Christchurch is a fantastic gateway to exciting activities around the region. From hiking, skiing to bungy jumping or those who prefer to ride bikes there is always something to entertain you and the family!

The city has over 300 kilometres of bicycle tracks to choose from! For those who like surfing, iconic beaches, wineries and garden markets you are only within a 2 hour drive away from these activities.

For those who like sports, the Christchurch residents are avid supporters of their Rugby team – The Canterbury Crusaders. They are the most successful team in Super Rugby history with seven titles and their home ground is called AMI Stadium located only a short drive from the CBD.

One of Christchurch’s high achievers is the recent Prime Minister, the right honourable John Key who opened our new facility in May 2013- a very proud day for Allied Pickfords in New Zealand.

The customer service is second to none. The move started on time and finished on time. The in-home obligation free quote was the best we received (including insurance!).

We recommend Allied Pickfords to anyone and everyone making a move! We couldn’t have been any happier. They exceeded every expectation we had!
