Moving to New Zealand

Are you considering moving your belongings to New Zealand? At Transpack you have three transport options, namely: direct transport where your belongings go into their own moving container, groupage transport where your shipment goes into a shared container, and air freight. Let us advise you on the best options for your move.

The costs of moving to New Zealand

The biggest advantage of moving by sea container to New Zealand is the cost. A huge number of containers go on one boat, which means that the price is naturally lower than when moving by air freight. If you choose to use the shared container, you also share the already relatively low sea freight costs with others. Transpack can give you a tailor-made quote.

What should I take with me when I move to New Zealand?

To help you get well prepared to travel, we’ve listed a few tips. Make sure that you do not have documents, keys, medicines, jewelry and other important items in your sea and/or air freight shipment. Always take these things with you.

ClothingIt is important to bring appropriate clothing to New Zealand. Think of good outdoor clothing for nature and the mountains. It doesn’t get extremely hot in New Zealand. This is because of the wind from the Tasmanian Sea and it doesn’t get extremely cold.
Travel plug The main voltage in New Zealand is 230 Volt and the frequency is 50Hz. You need an adapter plug if you bring electrical devices.
MedicinesCheck if your medication is available in New Zealand and what the maximum amount is that you can take with you. Also check if you need a medical certificate to take your medication with you when traveling.
DocumentsTake important documents such as passport, visa documents etc. with you in your hand luggage – also make copies.
Personal itemsThink of your favorite care products, things that remind you of home and other things that shouldn’t be missing when traveling.
