    Default Moving in NZ

    Does anyone know what it costs to move house once in NZ?

    We're considering downscaling but need to factor in the possible moving costs to see if it would be worth it.

    Its an average sized 3 bedroom house and we'd be moving locally (within 15km's)

    What exactly do you mean?
    Removal costs?

    You ll have to count in possible success fees (1weeks rent plus GST) which some agencies charge.
    And if the new house is more expensive you ll have to pay the bond on top of what you have paid already for your current house.

    Before we moved in January this year I compared a lot of moving companies.
    How many movers, How big is the truck, insurance, where is the location of the company (you have to pay once they left until they are back home)
    The prices here in Wellington are from $90 - $130 /h. Hope that's what ur looking for.

    Thanks!

    Yeah, I'm looking for the costs of the moving van and people to help move.

    I might ask for a quote and see what comes out.

    Hi there
    Not been on here for the longest time.

    But we are about to move - in 4 weeks and we've booked a removal company in Auckland for $80/hour with 2 men for the loading & unloading. We have a 3 bedroom house and they reckon no more than 4 hours - which I think is really good. We're moving from Albany to Orewa - which is about 20 min drive in the car - not sure about distance.

    Hope that helps
    Rho
