Hello everyone,

I am new here. Thank you for the wonderful information everyone has posted here over time.

We are moving permanently from the USA (Virginia) to New Zealand (Whangarei area) at the end of November 2010. We have a 3 bedroom apartment to ship taking about 1/2 to 1 container. It's mainly furniture, household/sport items and some work of art/antiques. No car.

What is your experience with door-to-door moving companies from the US to NZ? Anyone you recommend? Did they handle customs and did they do quality work? So far I have been told about Vanpac but have yet to contact them. Any experience good or bad with them?

Thank you very much,
