Expert Packing for Moving to New Zealand

Once you have booked your move to New Zealand, it's time for the packing day. It is important to mention that most countries do not allow containers packed by the owner (PBO) and if your items are not packed properly, there could be delays and extra charges.

At Hercules Moving Company, we have years of experience in international moving and are equipped with a team of expert packers. We use only the best packing materials and techniques, like branded Alligator wrappings instead of more traditional moving blankets, as well as extra sturdy international moving boxes.

Our experts will take care of your belongings so you don't have to worry about anything!

Customs Clearance When Moving to New Zealand

When it comes to international moving to New Zealand, after the expert packing is done, the shipment is loaded and shipped according to our customers' preferences.

This process involves providing all required documentation and obeying relevant regulations, making it essential for experienced professionals to take care of paperwork and navigate the complex customs clearance requirements.

At Hercules Moving Company, we guarantee personalized support throughout the entire process.

Had a piano moved from one household to another. They took great care and did an amazing job with packing it up and delivery. I would recommend this company to anyone looking.

Homeowner Toronto

Outstanding small moves service. The company exceeded my high expectations! The moving crew members were friendly, efficient, proficient and caring, and worked as a cohesive team.

I was very satisfied with Hercules Moving Company. They made it easy and stress free for us. They arrived on time and packed and professionally covered our furniture to go into storage, since we are in between houses. I was amazed by how they were able to efficiently pack and store a 5 bedroom, 2 living room, office and a gym into a storage unit where they organized everything to fit perfectly. This wasn't an easy job and I was 100% satisfied with their service and would recommend them to anyone looking for good quality movers. Thanks Hercules Moving company for helping us move!

This company to put it simply was AMAZING! The initial call to Hercules went extremely well from that moment I knew this was the company I would use. Walter who made the booking was efficient and quick in meeting all my needs. The day of the move the team worked very well wrapping all of my furniture securely preventing any damage. The workers and entire staff were friendly very fast and clearly enjoy there job. I will definitely recommend Hercules moving company to all my friends and family for there moving needs.

Great moving experience with the best Scarborough movers I have ever met in Toronto. Arrived with a team of 3 guys and moved a 4500sq2 house within 8 hours. Amazing service!

I am very satisfied with their work.They were punctual. They work fast, very careful, and very professional.

If you still in doubt of what piano movers in Toronto to choose - hope you read my review :) Hercules Movers did an excellent job of relocating a grand piano from a music school to my house and additionally advised me a professional piano tuner. Extra care service, friendly and skilled movers, which were extremely accurate and protected the piano as well as floors, walls and stairs.


We really appreciate the kind generosity of the Hercules moving company in moving the piano to our house. They didn't accept any money, because they were doing our son a favour as he is currently diagnosed with a pre-existing condition. Sending lots of good energy and good karma their way! We too will one day make sure we pay this forward. Highly recommend them - very good people!

Hercules moved my piano from an old bungalow to the second floor of my place. At the old house, there was tricky stairs and front yard fence to navigate. At the new place, there was a tall set of stairs which they had to move this heavy piano up. It definitely looked exhausting, but they did a great job and I'm very happy with their service.

Leandro Baldassarre

They showed up on time and worked ultra quick. We had a lot of sensitive equipment and they took extra care to ensure it was all moved safely. I highly recommend them for any commercial move.

It was great to work with Hercules moving company. They arrived on time, had a team of very competent and friendly guys who treated our possessions with respect, including our grand piano. They were quick in disassembling and wrapping our furniture and seemed to have a lot of experience. They worked hard and kept us within the budget. I highly recommend them to everyone.


I had to move my entire food operation in a day. With Edmonton movers quoted me quickly and showed up on site 2 days later ready to move. I was worried about all my expensive and sensitive machinery but they pulled it off safely and without issue. Very reasonably priced and highly recommended. Great company.

Good job. Guys were very pleasant and fast. Everything was clear, no hidden fees. They met all my request.

Professional and hardworking. I’ve used them many times and would highly recommend for storage Toronto services and moving services! They’re the best in Toronto.

Valery Shchurok

I've moved around quite a bit in the last while, and have used a couple of different moving companies. I also have experience with having furniture and other things broken. Hercules was very careful with my stuff, and wrapped all of my furniture with blankets. The movers were on time, and the move was done in the same time as estimated by George. Happy to have found you guys, I will recommend you to anyone who's moving.
