Considering a Move to Hamilton?

Hamilton is a New Zealand city on the North Island and is around 65 miles south of Auckland. The city has around 209,300 residents and is the second fastest growing urban area in New Zealand.

The University of Waikato and the Waikato Institute of Technology in Hamilton provide innovation for New Zealand’s agriculture industry and also provide career opportunities for those moving to Hamilton. Hamilton is home to New Zealand’s largest aircraft manufacturer who are also large employers in the city. Other city employers include Waikato Hospital who employ over 2,500 staff.

The airport at Hamilton now supports only domestic New Zealand flights with all other International Flights using airports such as the Auckland International Airport.

Places worth visiting when moving to Hamilton include Hamilton Gardens, Hamilton Zoo, Waikato Museum, and The Base Shopping Centre.

Abels Moving Services advises that Export Packing is a fundamental requirement for all your items and possessions when moving to Hamilton. Export Packing is a way of protecting items when in transit. It utilises either a 6 ply paper blanket that has a wax inner and a water resistant outer or tough bubble blanket that has a soft cloth inner and robust outer to ensure corners are not exposed. Certain items will need to be card covered, put into a carton or an additional layer of the above wrap to add extra protection for items such as polished furniture, antiques, delicate legs, mirror and glass fronted units.

The level of protection that is needed when moving items for example by road is less stringent but for moving your items travelling thousands of miles in either 20ft Containers or 40ft Containers on their sea journey to Hamilton then they will need additional Export Packing protection. Please remember that the goods will be “handled” many times including wrapping, loading the container, road journey to the port, container hoist removes and stacks, container hoist moves from the stack to the loading area near the vessel, loading the vessel crane gantry, sea journey and then the same in reverse. So the protection is paramount in ensuring the contents longevity when moving to Hamilton.
