Online buyers can now ‘Move It’

Media Release: 11 October 2006

Online buyers can now ‘Move It’

‘Move It’ is a new Kiwi business providing a door-to-door delivery service for online buyers. Their service uniquely complements online trading websites such as Trade Me, and provides the solution to one of the major challenges of online buying: ‘Now that I have bought it, how do I move it?’

Freight forwarding industry experts, Andrew Coe and Mike Turner, started the business just a few short months ago, they already have the business infrastructure in place, delivery contractors organised nationwide, and the early customer word of mouth has been overwhelmingly positive with strong repeat business and growth.

Their tagline is ‘Anything to anywhere, made easy’. They have a simple and effective website ( that allows people to price any potential move themselves. They will move anything in size from an elephant to an envelope, to anywhere door-to-door, after-hours if needed, and at a very competitive price.

Mike Turner said, “When we hit on the idea of this business we realised what an untapped market it is. The massive growth in online auctions means that hundred of thousands of people are faced with the problem of after-sale delivery. This is the niche that we are filling, whatever you buy online, no matter how wild, wacky or wide, we can Move It from wherever you bought it to your home or business, after-hours if needed, safely and securely.”

With an estimated 1.4 million kiwi Trade Me users alone, this is a potentially huge market. Move It have had to move thousands of unusual items already, including canoes, kayaks, sports equipment, car parts, doors, pool tables, and a myriad of extraordinary household items. They have even been moving the giant comedy smile (4 metres wide and 3 metres high) from stage to stage around Auckland for this year’s NZ Comedy Festival.

Turner added, “At the moment we can deliver to anywhere in New Zealand out of Auckland, and by November we will be operating out of all major centres in NZ, not just Auckland. Our intention is to provide online buyers, both consumer and business, with the leading nation-wide door-to-door delivery service in the country. There are no hidden charges with us. With Move It, you no longer have to worry. We welcome both large and small items from individuals, and you can even pay online.”

As more and more people buy and sell online, there will be an increasing demand for an affordable, reliable delivery method to move items around New Zealand. Existing courier and freight companies are mostly set up to handle goods sent to and from businesses. Move It is a New Zealand business uniquely equipped to look after items that need transportation between residential addresses.

Move It has found the solution to delivering your online purchase. Anything to anywhere, made easy.
