Our Business Move Quotation Process

Simple Business Premises Moves:

If your business move is a simple one, we’ll give you a quote based on our hourly rate and your specification of what needs to be moved and when.

Complex Business Premises Moves:

If your business move includes unusually large, fragile or technical items - or an unusual timeline or timeframe - we’ll generally come and appraise the stuff at your existing premises (and possibly your new location) and give you a customised quote for your job.

For complex moves we will:


We’ll closely assess what you need moved at your old premises and where it is going.


We’ll draw up a plan in a technical and timeline-sense for moving your office furniture & business equipment.


We’ll include custom pricing on any extra resources we need to draw upon to make your complex/ custom move happen seamlessly and on your timeframes.

Moving Your Business Premises in Chch - Rules of Thumb

Sat/ Sunday is Best

It’s usually better to run a business premises move on a Saturday/ Sunday when the majority of businesses are shut for day-to-day operations - this will minimise disruptions to your staff and customers.

As a rule there is generally also better access for our moving trucks on these days.

Multiple Trucks & Crews are Faster

With good forward-planning and notice in advance we can generally bring multiple trucks and moving crews to get your job done in just 1 weekend morning -- or one full-day, for larger business premises moves.

Outside of Christchurch’s CBD (where weekend moves are always preferable), moves to and from industrial and commercially zoned areas like Ferrymead, Hornby/ Sockburn and Hillsborough are usually fine to run on weekdays.

Inform us of your specific needs

Please let us know about the specifics of your location, access and parking near your building when you call or email for a quote.
