We have built Southern Furniture Movers around the commercial industry. We know how important it is to get your goods from manufacturing to store, or direct to client, in a timely manner, on time and in good condition! Give us a call to find out more!

Commercial Deliveries

Do you own a store that sells furniture and / fragile items? If so, we can take all of the hassle out of distribution for you. All you need to do is book it in with us and we will take care of the rest, including liaising with your clients – a full customer service experience. 

Direct To Customer Deliveries

Want to take the hassle out of end customer deliveries? We can help!

All you need to do is give us all of the information as to what and where, and we will take care of the rest for you!

We offer a full range of services, including setting up of some furniture products onsite, removal of rubbish and of course, placement in your clients home. We also offer a disposal service and often donate these items to charity. Paying it forward to help our community!

MPI Approved Transitional Facilities

Our branches in Christchurch and Auckland are MPI Approved Transitional Facilities for devanning import and domestic containers for distribution. 

Scheduled Nationwide Services

Our services throughout New Zealand are scheduled. This means that you know every week where our trucks will be and when. This gives you the ability to give your client a date for delivery that you can rely on.

Also, our TMS (Transport Management System) is accessible for clients, including the ability to track your goods in real time. Proof of Deliveries are sent automatically from our system as soon as they’ve been signed off to the receiving client, to an email address designated by you, our customer. This gives you a GPS stamped POD that includes the clients signature and the truck it was delivered on.

Fragile Freight

Anything fragile that needs extra care, Southern Furniture Movers will take care of it for you – get in touch with us!

3PL Services

Southern Furniture Movers offers a full 3PL (third-party logistics) service. From devanning of containers to consolidating goods and delivery to end client. You tell us what and where, and we will take care of it for you! We have a reliable and easy to use WMS that clients can see in real time, so everything is transparent! Just the way we like it.

One Item Deliveries

We are available to collect those Trademe items for you if you can’t get them yourself, all you need to do is email us with the details including the contact details for the seller, and we will arrange collection directly, no need to be the middle man! Please Note: When we are busy with our commercial deliveries, we may have to decline to quote some jobs.

“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

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.

“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!”
