This post will take a closer look at how Schepens handles international removals to New Zealand. After that, we will explain why Schepens is the best choice for furniture removals to New Zealand from UK.


The Schepens Furniture Removals Process

Our company has been performing international removals for more than 100-years. During this time, we have developed a very streamlined and precise process for handling complex removals. This process focusses on maintaining high levels of customer satisfaction and security throughout the removal. Our team will ensure that your possessions arrive safely at their destination and keep you well-informed during the move.

We only use removers who have been trained to the standards set out by the British Association of Removers. These best-practice standards dictate how items should be packed, how many contingency plans should be in place, and much more. Our adherence to these standards gives you the certainty that your removal will be performed safely and efficiently. Our furniture removals to New Zealand include the following steps:

Initial client meeting and quotation process

The first step in the removals process involves the client meeting with a Schepens move coordinator. Our move coordinators are very experienced removers who can accurately determine the cost of an international removal. They will ask a number of questions about your removal, including:

  • How many items will be moved to New Zealand?
  • Do your the departure or destination locations have access issues?
  • When would you like to move your cargo to New Zealand?
  • Would you like to use the Schepens professional packing service?
  • Would you like to put any cargo into storage at one of our depots?
  • Are any of the items being moved unusually large or heavy?
  • Would you prefer a dedicated container or is a shared container acceptable?
  • Which cargo insurance plan would you prefer to use?

The move coordinator may ask to see certain items or ask for measurements of any particularly large or cumbersome items. If you only have a small number of boxes to move, the entire consultation can be performed over the phone or via email. 

Once the move coordinator has gathered the necessary information, they will prepare a detailed quote. This quote will list the items being moved, the delivery window, the pickup date, the insurance plan being used, and the total cost. The total cost of a removal to New Zealand is based on numerous different factors including the weight of the cargo, the type of container you are using (dedicated or shared), and any additional services that you require. 

Unlike many other insurance companies, the total cost listed on our quotes is the final figure. There are no hidden extras. Our quotes are 100% free and completely obligation-free.

Our furniture packing process

All items are packed in accordance with BAR standards. We pay particularly close attention to fragile items and use high quality packing materials including 200 grade cardboard boxes. 

Our removers use rigorous packing procedures for glassware, china, plates, bottles of wine and other fragile items. Some of the steps we take to keep your possessions safe during the removal include:

  • Our removers apply thick layers of bubble wrap and packing paper to fragile items
  • All timber or glass surfaces are covered with bubble wrap, packing paper, or moving blankets
  • Mirrors are carefully wrapped with bubble wrap and plastic
  • When necessary, we disassemble furniture
  • Plastic wrap is taped onto any upholstered furniture to protect it from dust

One of our eagle-eyed move coordinators watches over the entire removals process. They will ensure all of our carefully developed packing procedures are applied and that your possessions are safe.
