From a single office to the National Museum, no relocation is too big nor too small. Freear Philip has been in the business of moving businesses since 1966. We have history and experience unrivalled by our competitors and we were the first dedicated commercial movers in Wellington.

We offer a wide range of relocation services tailored to suit our clients’ needs.

With Freear Philip "your project is in good hands"


A member of our team will visit you at your premises to discuss the relocation of the items you want moved. They will physically count every item that is to be moved, making an accurate estimate of the number of crates and cartons you will need. Our methodology for quoting not only provides you with an accurate price for relocation, but will also provide you with an accurate timeline for completion of the move.

Freear Philip Limited has been relocating companies in Wellington since 1966 and has developed a reputation as one of the capitals leading commercial office movers. 

The company’s Relocation director has been working in the industry since 1972; many large organisations including NZ Parliament, Te Papa – NZ National Museum and Wellington Public library to name some of the larger projects. The team comprises highly experienced managers and supervisors who oversee all relocations carried out by well trained staff.

At Freear Philip Limited we are extremely conscious of the need to bring in a relocation on time and within budget. To this end we have developed our own in-house programme that not only calculates the price accurately but also calculates the man hours that any project will take. We simply apply efficient equipment and labour resources to predict the linear time the relocation will take.

When we have been appointed for a relocation project our manager will meet with our client coordinator to assist with the layout plans and numbering. We will attend project meetings (if requested to) to work through the logistics of the move and to solve any unforeseen problems that may arise. Our colour coding system adds additional peace of mind for our clients whenever there are multi-floor moves.

Over the decades that Freear Philip Limited has been in business we have been pro-active in developing equipment and systems to carry out any relocation project in the most efficient way. Our wide variety of trollies will safely and efficiently move all types of office furniture and equipment. We have the support of our own joinery division to assist us with the many innovations that have allowed us to safely and efficiently move many awkward and difficult items.

Communication and planning with library staff was excellent and meant that work on shift day went smoothly. A range of library items was shifted without damage and into the correct shelving prepared for it.

The extent of their experience in this area was evident in the quality of their work. I was very happy with their performance.

"...their pre-move briefing to the entire staff of our Wellington office was most useful and ensured a top class result.

We would have no hesitation in recommending the Freear Philip Team to tenants looking to move within the Wellington region."
