Fully recommended and stress-free.

Huge credit goes to [Name removed by Sirelo] (regional manager) and his team. They are highly recommended for their professionalism, trustworthy and taking precautions when handling our household items from Dunedin to Christchurch.
Extra cartons and bubble wrap was kindly provided for extra protection.

We were also happy with the staff involved with the delivery into the home in Christchurch.
Everything arrived in an excellent condition.

Much appreciated and a huge thank you to [Name removed by Sirelo] who conducted the entire transfer.

Moved from Dunedin (New Zealand) to Christchurch (New Zealand)
On receiving our contents we received two invoices. Both were penalty charges for information we did not have or had already supplied, we asked for an itemised invoices which we did not receive. Communication was poor. They receive most of their payment up front so it seems after that they aren't interested in their clients. One star is two out of 10 I don't rate them.
Moved from Kalgoorlie (Australia) to Tauranga (New Zealand)
Even though they had a breakdown they kept us informed and still did it in the time they, said they would. Great teamwork at all levels
Moved from Whangārei (New Zealand) to Cairns (Australia)
Broken promises on when container would be shipped out. Unable to track container shipping progress. Container arrived 5 weeks after date of estimate. Significant damage to lounge suite , desk , dishes.
I then tried to claim insurance from a total of 14,000 value insured but due to not recording the lounge suite i could not claim full amount (i.e. insurance company found every excuse to exclude coverage). I wouldn't go back to this company - the 'competitive price' was actually poor quality = low price
Moved from Hamilton (New Zealand) to Melbourne (Australia)
We corresponded with a gentleman named [name removed by Sirelo], who was extremely helpful, came to our house and gave us real practical advise about moving our belongings. In the months following every question or queries we had he kindly followed them all up. His service was outstanding. When it came to uplift our furniture etc. from the 2 man packing our belongings, were just amazing, how they treated everything with care. Hence the rating
Outstanding service

Moved from Auckland (New Zealand) to Perth (Australia)
Many things changed during the process and Dave and staff were happy to accommodate.
Moved from Tauranga (New Zealand) to Brisbane (Australia)
I paid over $10k for a 20ft container NZ to U.K., full pack and unpack service. Two boxes were lost and they damaged a sofa, I was also left at the end of the day with over 50% of the boxes unpacked. When I complained it was clear that they didn't care and finger pointing between the UK and NZ teams started. It is now 4 months since I left NZ and I'm still waiting for a response.
The NZ packing team were very pleasant
They don't care
No action is taken on complaints
Moved from Auckland (New Zealand) to Formby (United Kingdom)
Very easy to deal with
Moved from Wellington (New Zealand) to Melbourne (Australia)
A few issues at the NZ end mainly due to lack of organisation and communication. E.g. Containers didn't arrive for loading on the day of the move.
Our goods are still in transit so we hope for better service at the UK end.
Some lack of organisation
More geared to moves to Australia
Moved from Napier (New Zealand) to Ipswich (United Kingdom)
