Moving to Wellington

Considering a Move to Wellington?

Wellington is located on the southwestern tip of the North Island of New Zealand, and has around 395,600 residents. It is close to the Cook Strait which runs between the North and South Islands of New Zealand, and the Rimutaka Mountain Range.

Those moving to Wellington will find it is the political centre of New Zealand and is where the counties Parliament is located. The city also has the head offices of all New Zealands Government Ministries and Departments and it is also where the bulk of the foreign diplomatic missions in New Zealand are found.

The city has recently increased the number of Cruise ships docking at the port with now over 60 liners per year visiting the city. This now creates new job opportunities for those moving to Wellington besides traditional jobs in various Government departments.

Places worth visiting when moving to Wellingon include Wellington Zoo, the Museum of Wellington City and Sea, Karori Wildlife Sanctuary and the Wellington Cable Car.

Abels Moving Services advises that Export Packing is a fundamental requirement for all your items and possessions when moving to Wellington. 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 Wellington 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 Wellington.
