The goal of our container relocation service is to take the hassle out of the moving process. Anyone who’s moved house will know that most of the stress is down to the rush of the day. Things like getting everything ready and packed before movers arrive or being worried about running out of time before your rental truck has to be returned.

How container relocation works


We send a truck

We send a truck with a shipping container to your house or business. We unload the container for you in the best possible position. You then pack at your own pace. It could take 1 day or 1 year. It’s up to you!


We arrange the transport

Once the shipping container is full and ready to go, we arrange the transport to your new location. If it’s close by we may use a truck for the full relocation. If you are moving further away then we will likely use a combination of truck/rail and/or sea.


We deliver and unload

Once the container arrives in your new town or city, we unload the container at your new premises.


You unpack

You then unpack the container at your own leisure. If you are hiring the container from us you can have the container for as long as you like and we’ll organise the shipping container removal when you’re done. If the container was sold to you, it’s yours to keep!

Frequently asked questions

Do you have different sized shipping containers?

We have 10ft, 20ft and 40ft shipping containers available for use in our NZBOX Shipping Container Relocations service. You can usually fit the possessions of a 3 – 4 bedroom-sized house in a 20ft shipping container as a good reference point to decide upon.

The measurements of our shipping containers are available should you need exact container dimensions.

What about different types of shipping containers?

We also have different types of shipping containers like insulated containers, side opening containers, double door containers and more. These ‘special containers’ can all be used as part of the container removals service.

Do you relocate containers nationwide and internationally?

This service is available nationwide and even internationally in some circumstances. If you’re looking to move overseas with this service, feel free to give us a call on 0800 818 818 and we’ll talk you through the specifics.

How much does shipping container relocation cost?

The cost of shipping container relocation depends on a few factors including the size of container required and the location of pick-up and delivery. You can get a quote from us, quickly and easily by using our online quote request form.

Can you pack the containers too?

Transport, loading and unloading are what we do best so we leave the packing and unpacking to our customers. This allows us to keep our (and your) costs down and takes away the pressure and stress of time where removal companies are involved.

Is there anything else to be aware of?

If the container is to be unloaded outside your property boundaries, you will need to ensure that you have permission from the local council to do so. We also recommend that you make sure you have insurance cover from your own private insurer.
