Ours was 9 weeks door to door. We used Atlantic International.

May just be me but your fancy light blue font is quite hard to read against a white background...

NZ Van lines Auckland for us to the point where OH had to deal with them because I was just losing it. Apparently though in Wellington they are lovely. But I think options this side are understandably limited. Anglo Pacific in the UK...seemingly ok - not great but passable and cheap - but we'll see what state our stuff is in when it comes through the door tomorrow You get what you pay for sometimes!

We had several shipping companies in the other week. We have decided to go with Robinsons, they have quoted us 8 weeks door to door and that is for a part-load container of 640 cubic feet. They also gave the best storage rates in the UK and a good deal on insurance.

We went with John Mason in UK and The Moving Company this end.
20 ft sole use container door to door 11 weeks, no breakages or damage.
We also insured through John Mason as they price matched Letton Percival.
No complaints whatsoever.
