Dunedin is one of the oldest cities in New Zealand. It was the original home of Scottish Methodists who settled looking for a new life in the late 1800s. Its location is ideal for international trading which was soon evolved into a very busy harbour with the discovery of gold shortly after its founding.
Today, Dunedin is home to a huge University which teaches many of New Zealand’s doctors, dentists and many other medical specialists. This also gives the city a real vibrant feel with many student friendly features such as cafes, pubs and accommodation located within minutes of walking distance of the CBD.
Dunedin is known as the gateway to Central Otago which is one of the leading tourist destinations in NZ. It is also where you are able to ride the iconic Taieri Gorge Railway.
In 2011 Dunedin also saw the opening of the large covered Forsyth Barr Stadium. Dunedin being close to the Central Otago region includes towns like Alexander, Cromwell, Queenstown, Wanaka, and Arrowtown. Moving to Dunedin is stress free when you chose the right furniture removals company.

Have you started to think about how and where to start with packing up your home? Packing is a critical part of the move process and requires some time and resources applied to ensure your move is successful. Of course many clients prefer to pack themselves and this is sometimes helpful to keep costs down when you have spare time on your hands. It will often raise some questions such as where are you going to store all the materials prior to your move? What type of packing materials will I need? Where do I purchase packing materials from? The Dunedin moving team offer a complete range of packing materials that you can purchase should you be looking to pack your personal belongings or we can arrange for a complete packing service should you run out of time.
