Moving Customer Service

Containerised Transport

Crown New Zealand have made the commitment to containerise all long distance relocations. We exclusively use both rail and sea to deliver the lowest possible carbon footprint and enhanced customer safety.

Features of our containerised service include:

  • Our waterproof containers are custom-built and specifically designed for the transportation of household goods.
  • We utilise tie rails to secure loads and prevent movement during transit.
  • Containerisation eliminates the unnecessary double handling of goods, it is well known that double handling and transhipping during transit significantly increases the risk of damage.

Direct Loading at Residence

We endeavour to direct load containers at the customers residence. Direct loading is an option that minimises the number of times your goods are handled, which in turn reduces the risk of accidental damage. Please discuss this with your Crown consultant as the service may not be available in some circumstances.

   Getting Settled

A dedicated coordinator will act as a single point of contact at destination to manage your delivery and ensure your satisfaction prior to your signing off on the delivery of services.

   Getting Delivered

Delivery Service:

  • We provide a well trained (TCT), uniformed delivery team with an appointed team leader .
  • All items are unpacked (cartons to a flat service) and placed in the appropriate rooms to your satisfaction.
  • All furniture disassembled by Crown (beds etc) will be reassembled by the delivery team.
  • Your original packing inventory will be checked off.
  • All waste material and debris will be collected by Crown for recycling.

Tips for Delivery Day:

  • Avoid having your delivery scheduled on the same day as your property settlement given that settlements can be subject to delays. Ensure Crown is aware of any access issues at your new home.
  • You or your representative should be present on delivery day to ensure the level of assistance provided meets your needs.
  • Where practical, arrange for your children to be looked after or engaged in an activity during the day.
