MOUNT COOK MOVING & STORAGE
Are you moving or need storage?
Mount Cook Moving & Storage Ltd
Established in 1989 by Peter & Sue Grant
During the earlier days the business operated as a Franchise for an International Moving Company. These days we keep it simple with a one van, one driver operation doing regular Inter-Island trips from our Oamaru home base. Peter is the driver, sales and operations manager, while Sue sorts the accounts.
Peter has been a Furniture Removals Packer / driver for over 45 years. From European Antiques transport to USA & Australian Long Haul Removals and now back to NZ-wide line haul.
Express Van Service
Our popular express van/trailer service offers affordable Inter Island furniture moves within a 1-3 day transit period. We use the latest Model Mercedes Sprinter jumbo van pulling a tandem furniture trailer.
This 190 hp van can SAFELY & LEGALLY carry a 30 m/3 furniture load at a max 8,000kg gross wt. A custom-built sleeper unit ensures added security for overnight stops. Back-loads are also catered for from time to time.
- One Van -
All the Way!!
All trips are undertaken by Peter personally. Goods are blanket wrapped, stowed on van & travel direct to your new destination without being off-loaded or subbed out to other carriers. We are in total control of your move from start to finish – kind of old school, but that’s the way we like it. Unless notified otherwise, all jobs are priced as driver only. i.e. Peter will stow & unload your goods with the customer expected to arrange an extra person to assist in the process. We can arrange extra staff/packers by request.
Average small 3 BR houselot Auckland – Lower south Island should start from around $4,800 Incl GST for a driver only, customer pack & assist load , 30 m/3 houselot.
Same prices apply both ways. Unless I am full both directions over the Cook Strait , I do not do the trip. Empty truck miles is costing the planet.
Minimum charge for small houselots is $ 550.00 Incl
ALL MOVES MUST BE BOOKED AT LEAST 6 – 8 WEEKS IN ADVANCE.
Due to recent problems
With ferries & the need to co ordinate other compatible backloads.
Mt Cook Moving & Storage Ltd cover all of New Zealand but specialise in ’out of the way‘ areas like Western Southland, Central Otago, West Coast, Gisborne, Waiheke Island & the Far North.
Moving will always leave your contents exposed to a high level of risk. I encourage all customers to arrange their own transit cover for their move. Unless notified – otherwise all goods will be carried at ’Owner’s Risk‘.
Cash or direct debit or bank cheque only. Sorry we do not have mobile facilities to process credit card payments.
A GST invoice / receipt is available with every transaction.
