ABOUT

We May Be a Small Transport Business 
But We Have High Standards

Southern Furniture Movers is based in Dunedin and is privately owned by Teressa Grigg.

Teressa has over 20 years of experience in the transport industry, and General Manager Simon is only just behind at 18 years. They both love the industry and on rare occasions can be found stealing out of the office to drive a truck themselves.

Since opening in 2010, Southern Furniture Movers has expanded considerably. From just one Dunedin based truck, Southern Furniture Movers has grown to a fleet of 16, with Distribution Centres in Dunedin, Christchurch and Auckland.

Southern Furniture Movers is proud to have a solid group of people, we value our staff as family and in turn they treat our clients with the highest respect.

Staff training is offered to anyone wanting to expand their skills, wherever possible we upskill and promote staff when opportunities arise. This strategy has paid dividends in staff retention (our inter island linehaul driver, Jamie, started with us 8 years ago as a school leaver!) and staff knowledge. We’re proud to have a far lower staff turnover rate than our competitors, and that provides continuity for our clients.

Southern Furniture Movers are proud supporters of Special Rigs for Special Kids, and send several trucks every year, as well as various childrens’ charities throughout the year – e.g. Heart Kids Otago, Autism NZ to name a few.

Testimonials

“Just wanted to say thank you very much – our bath arrived in tiptop condition late yesterday afternoon. Your driver was very helpful and a very nice guy – all in all a very stress-free delivery! Thanks heaps again.”

Graeme & Vicki Turnbull, Nelson

“Thanks so much for the great service getting our stuff from Timaru to Dunedin – your guys were great!  They were polite, tidy, organised and just got on with the job, no worries. Will recommend!”

Kristy Sutherland, Dunedin

“Yesterday (20/08/14) we received a delivery of whiteware and furniture. We purchased the items at Harvey Norman in Dunedin last weekend and they were delivered by Roddy  yesterday morning. We want to say that we were really rapt with his level of service and commitment to the job! Although he had many items to deliver to us, he was super-fast, friendly and professional. We were really pleased with the service, and we told him that, but we want to let his employer know that he did a great job. We will use your company directly if we need any deliveries in the future.”

Myra Williamson, Clinton

“I thought I would just let you know that the guys you sent out for our move were excellent. I have moved homes 4 times in 3 years and these guys were the best and the most reasonable in terms of costs. Please thank the guys for me again and to you for providing such a great service. Regards,”

Karen Edwards, Dunedin

“Just wanted to say thanks heaps for getting that Lilly sofa-bed to Kaiteriteri promptly for me, I have just spoken to the customer and they are over the moon and said that the driver on board was very friendly and helpful. Thanks again,”

Sandra Frisby, Timaru

“Thanks very much for organising this shift with minimum fuss. All went well. Special thanks to the guys who did a great job at two difficult locations in very unpleasant weather. Cheers,”

Alastair Logan, Dunedin

“I have had the pleasure in dealing with Southern Furniture Movers now for 2 years. In my business it is essential customer service is of the highest calibre, and this has definitely been met by the team at Southern Furniture Movers.

Regardless of where the items are being delivered in New Zealand, Southern Furniture Movers has been able to accommodate unusual delivery requests and deal with difficult delivery addresses with ease, making our customers satisfied with both of our businesses. The team at Southern Furniture Movers are a friendly, jovial bunch of people who make sure that what they do is done right the first time, and always with minimum disruption to our customers.

I will continue to use Southern Furniture Movers as I have not found another delivery firm that shares my own values of honesty, integrity and my passion for customer service.”

LJ, Director, Enoc Industries Limited

“Referred to us by another business. Awesome people & service. Transported some of our very sensitive equipment with no issues at all. There is no other choice locally as far as we are concerned. Highly recommend above all others!”

TradeMe Services Review (farmnet)

“These guys came recommended to me. They picked up in Dunedin & delivered to our house in Hawea; 3 huge lounge windows & 2 heavy security doors at such a cheap rate I still can’t believe it. All goods arrived in super fast time & delivered into the house. Excellent service! I will be using them again for sure & I recommend them to all. Thanks!”
