Expert Tips for Moving from Auckland to Christchurch

Hire a Professional Moving Company

Some people choose the DIY method when moving to a new house. This usually involves renting a truck, packing it themselves, and then driving them to the new house. Even with a local move, however, this adds stress and hassle to the situation. Moving to a new house is a big deal, so it’s important to minimise stress and hassle rather than heap up more.

This is even more important for intercity moves, including when moving from Auckland to Christchurch.

For long-distance moves like this, a professional removals company will significantly reduce the time it takes to complete the move. They will do all the heavy lifting too, plus they will have all the insurance, equipment, and expertise you need.

Get Quality Packing Materials and Put as Much in Boxes as You Can

Good quality packing materials, particularly boxes, are a good investment. They make the move easier and they help to protect your belongings.

It is also important to pack as much of your belongings into boxes as possible. Boxes are easier to stack into the removal truck than loose items, so your removal company will get more into the truck.

Label All the Boxes

It will take you a bit of time to get settled into your new home with everything unpacked. The last thing you want, however, is to need something soon after moving in but not being able to find it because you don’t know what box it is in.

Clearly labelling all your boxes is the straightforward solution.

It can also be helpful to have an additional priority label that you put on boxes that you will know you will need as soon as you get to your new home.

Declutter Your Home

One of the factors that determine the cost of moving from Auckland to Christchurch is the volume of belongings that need to be moved. In simple terms, the less you move, the less costly it is likely to be.

Therefore, decluttering and doing a clear out is highly recommended. Get rid of anything you are unlikely to need or use in your new home in Christchurch. You might even be able to sell some of the items to make a bit of extra cash.

Book the Right Truck

There are a number of factors to consider when booking a truck with a removal company. This includes the belongings that need to be moved to ensure they all fit on the truck.

Access to your old and new property is important too. If you book a truck that is too big for the driveway in either house, for example, the movers will have to walk further to get items into or out of the truck. This could add considerable time to the move.

Arrange to Get the Keys at the New House in Christchurch

Make sure you have the keys and access to your new house in Christchurch before the moving truck arrives with your belongings. This will minimise delays.

Buy Transit Insurance

Your belongings probably won’t be covered by your home insurance during a move, so it is recommended that you get transit insurance. The unexpected can happen to even the most professional and dedicated moving companies, particularly on long-distance moves like moving from Auckland to Christchurch. Transit insurance will ensure you have the cover you need.

Book Your Travel Tickets in Advance

When moving from Auckland to Christchurch, your moving company will look after the booking of ferry tickets for the removals truck. You’ll need to sort your own travel tickets, however. This could be ferry tickets if you are travelling by car or plane tickets.

Remember to do this in advance to ensure there is availability.
