No recommendation

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).


Recommendation

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

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.

Pros and cons
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).


Recommendation

Efficient
Very easy to deal with
Moved from Wellington (New Zealand) to Melbourne (Australia).


Recommendation

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.

Pros and cons
Worldwide
Competitive
Some lack of organisation
More geared to moves to Australia
Moved from Napier (New Zealand) to Ipswich (United Kingdom).
