Frequently asked questions

How long will my belongings take to reach Christchurch by sea?

If you choose to send your belongings by sea, freight from Melbourne to Christchurch takes approximately 10 days port-to-port. We recommend you speak directly to your WridgWays consultant to who will inform you of shipping days and give you a more specific time frame.

Note: You will also need to add 2 weeks to the time frame above to allow for door-to-door uplift, delivery, and to allow for any quarantine checks.

Do I need to prepare any of my belongings before I move?

There are some items that need special preparation prior to being moved. This may be because the item is too bulky to be carried, or it may need to be specially prepared for quarantine reasons. For example, a kids swing set needs to be dismantled for easier handling.

Speak to your WridgWays advisor who will guide you through the process and can let you know what needs preparation prior to moving.
