    The Moving Company

    the moving company logoChoosing a professional moving company for your move is extremely important to ensure this potentially stressful time is performed with the upmost care and efficiency, so you can focus on more important matters when moving home.

    The philosophy of The Moving Company is built around providing a quality service that is value for money – that means the best employees – this is a business of service, combined with our aim to be the best, not the biggest. By being that little bit smaller, we believe we offer a superior level of customer service not experienced with larger companies.

    Our team understand the stress and inconvenience moving can create, even if it’s only across town, or to the other side of the world.

    With highly qualified staff, our services are designed to ensure that you are not distracted by moving so that you can focus on your new home, city or country.

    For the last seven years each July and August, a number of our packing crew are selected to travel to Switzerland for six weeks to work with one of our Swiss Partners - Packimpex International and experience the different moving challenges faced in Europe, the latest packing and wrapping techniques, and the European culture. Based in Zurich and Geneva, our staff are put through all aspects of moving within Europe, resulting in global best practice which is adopted for our customers right here in New Zealand.

    We know that our people are our most important asset, the key to our continued growth.


    New Zealand Van Lines

    nz vanlines logoYour choice of moving company is extremely important in reducing the stress of a move.

    Moving house, especially to another town or overseas, is a very stressful time. Research has indicated that it is one of the three most stressful events in our lives.

    For this reason, the company you choose for household removals is extremely important. How do you decide? On the face of it a lot of moving companies seem quite similar. So do you choose the cheaper company? Or the one making the most extravagant promises? A very difficult but important decision.

    We at New Zealand Van Lines Ltd believe we have some very special if not unique features which set us apart.

    We are a people business
    Firstly, our business philosophy is based on the premise that we are a people business, and our service - helping you move house - is our product. If we don't provide professional personal service we don't deserve to stay in business. So every emphasis is placed on this key factor.

    Our aim is to simply be the best
    Our shareholders are working Directors in the business, providing an extra degree of focus not found elsewhere. And although we are perhaps the largest household removal company in New Zealand, this has never been our objective. Our aim has always been simply to be the best.


    World Moving & Storage

    World Moving & StorageWorld Moving & Storage is an amazing relocation company with an immense focus on people – whether they are customers, partners or staff. PRIDE, ATTITUDE, RESPECT & TRUST are our business and personal values reflected in everything we do. We’d like to think that we’re not just another relocation company, but one with a fantastic culture, one that clients feel comfortable with –most of our work comes from referrals, which means a lot to us.

    • A trusted worldwide network with service partners in 196 countries. Open book policy, full transparency and no hidden costs.
    • We are approved for US and UK Military removals – a very exclusive arrangement.
    • We have a highly trained packing team and are the only removal company in New Zealand to have all full time employees (i.e. no casuals, no part-time staff). Our company has been instrumental in working to develop and implement a National Certificate in Relocations for the entire industry and all our packing crew members have been trained accordingly.
    • World Moving & Storage has consistently been recognised since 2011 for Excellence in Training & Development at the Westpac Business Awards, which recognise and celebrate the achievements of outstanding business people and set the benchmark for business across the region.
    • Best Practice Packing Techniques - our packing materials are designed especially for fragile freight including specialty cartons for breakables and antiques; bicycles; books; wine, fine art and clothing; export grade bubble wrap (Tuff Wrap) and specially designed crating.

    • We are a young, creative and modern company looking to constantly improve what we do and the way we do it, keeping up with the Global Mobility market changes and the new (local and global) requirements in our industry.
    • Our quoting process is simple, consultative and designed to ensure full customer satisfaction and best value for money. Our priority is to manage your concerns and remove any stress associated with the big step of moving home and changing countries. Moving the household goods is only a part of the relocation – moving and settling the family is the most important part of the entire process.
    • We can obtain 3 quotes on your behalf for all your relocations – regardless of the country of origin and destination. That way, you will always have a choice of 3 service proposals to benchmark the options received, but still have the advantage that World Moving is managing the entire relocation event and we’re fully responsible for the whole move.

    On Arrival has partnered with the following financial and investment services companies, click on any of the companies to see more information about them:

    Halewood International Foreign Exchange

    hifx logoHIFX are international currency brokers offering the best exchange rates to businesses and individuals looking to migrate or simply transfer funds abroad. Although it is impossible to predict future currency movements exactly, our views over recent years have consistently been seen by Reuters to be within the top three most accurate in the world with our analysts appearing regularly on CNBC and Bloomberg business television.

    The Private Client Team at HIFX understand the timescales of the migration process and the difficulties experienced by private individuals. Each client is allocated their own personal dealer, making it possible to put a strategy in place to meet their specific circumstances. Educating individuals thoroughly in the currency they are purchasing is vital with all registered clients receiving regular updates from their personal dealer. This enables our customers to make the most informed decision when they need to trade.
    Many individuals still have currency to transfer after they have already emigrated. For these clients it is extremely beneficial that we have offices in New Zealand, UK, Australia and the US as their accounts can be set up prior to entering their new country, enabling them to then deal in their local time zone and with a familiar service.

    The service HIFX provides is free and carries no obligation to trade with HIFX until instruction is given over our recorded telephone lines.
    On Arrival is happy to partner with HIFX for the Currency Exchange requirements of our clients.



    On Arrival is pleased to announce that we have recently commenced a relationship with NZForex, a global provider of online international payment services for consumer and business clients.

    Many of our clients are simply unaware of the high margins and fees that are often applied by the banks for international transfers. This has prompted On Arrival to enter into a referral partner arrangement with NZForex. The difference in exchange rates can often mean savings of thousands, or even tens of thousands of dollars (depending on volumes being sent). NZForex also provides hedging tools to assist you in managing the volatility of the foreign exchange markets.

    NZForex has waived the transfer fee for all transactions over $2,000 NZD, for our clients.

    If you are remitting funds to or from New Zealand then NZForex can help.

    NZForex is a wholly owned subsidiary of OzForex Group Limited which is listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX: OFX) priding itself on being a smarter, online alternative to other deliverable foreign exchange services. Focusing on providing both consumer and business clients with a better deal, the group has been operating since 1998 and has over 80,000 clients globally transferring in excess of $10 Billion NZD per annum.

    World First

    worldfirst logoWorld First UK Ltd was founded in London in January 2004. A little over a year later the New Zealand office was set up in order to satisfy the increasing number of clients within Australasia who require the services of a foreign exchange broker. It also gives us the ability to monitor the market throughout the working week; day and night. The company has gone from strength to strength by offering private individuals and companies the ability to achieve competitive foreign currency exchange rates and an exceptional service.

    The World First group has transacted with over 20,000 individuals and 3,500 companies to date. The foreign exchange turnover of the group in 2009 will be over NZ$4 billion.
    There are three main departments within the company; the private client team, the corporate team and the operations team.

    1. The private client team works with individuals who are expats living in New Zealand and New Zealander's who are buying property abroad, emigrating or making one off or regular money transfers. Each consultant at World First works with their clients to make sure they achieve the best exchange rates possible in the time frame they specify.
    2. The corporate team works with companies who either have overseas suppliers to pay, overseas revenues to repatriate, or who are investing abroad. Companies are guaranteed a package of low payment fees and unbeatable exchange rates.
    3. The operations team makes all the overseas and domestic payments on behalf of our clients. They are efficient, knowledgeable, flexible and polite, ensuring that our client's payments reach the nominated recipient accounts as quickly as possible. For the time being the payments function will be run out of London.
