We provide International moving services to all overseas locations from our network of branch and storage facilities in Auckland, Hamilton, Tauranga, Palmerston North, Hastings/Napier, Wellington, Nelson, Christchurch and Dunedin.
Moving overseas can be an exciting but challenging time. Crown has accumulated over 50 years of experience in transporting household items safely worldwide. On a daily basis we continue to develop and refine our standards and techniques to ensure our customers receive the highest quality service.
With offices in nearly 60 countries worldwide we are a market leader in the relocations industry, and no matter where you are moving in the world, we can support and assist you. Our outstanding world-wide presence globally means we are not reliant on unknown third party agents and can provide you the same consistent Crown service throughout your international relocation process. For destinations where we do not have an office, we utilise carefully chosen, reputable, service partners who are qualified and equipped to meet our strict quality standards and requirements.
We offer a range of freight shipping options from New Zealand depending on your requirements. These include:
- Sole-use containers for shipping large items, full-house loads and vehicles. Choose from 20 or 40 foot sole-use containers. A sole use container allows for a more efficient transit time frame.
- Shared containers for smaller shipments to popular destinations. A shared container allows you to only pay for the space that you use – this is a very cost effective container transport option but can result in delays.
- Individually Crated Shipments (LCL) are used for countries where we don’t have shared container options. An LCL shipment is packed in crates to ensure full protection and shipped in general purpose containers. This allows goods to be a shipped at the soonest possible convenience.
- Air transport for selected items. An air shipment is the quickest method of international transportation and an effective way of ensuring priority items are available at short notice.
Once your shipment is at the destination port we will facilitate all clearances and entry documentation prior to safe delivery to your new home. If you’re not ready to receive your shipment we can arrange storage.
We also offer a wide range of other services such as transit protection insurance, free relocation checklist, vehicle and pet relocations. Our customised Relocation Services are designed to minimise the pressure of moving overseas and assist you and your family to settle into your new country.
