In early 2012 I employed Poyner Housemovers to resite a house for me to Mangawhai Heads. As if like magic a house was resited perfectly onto my section. The job went like clockwork from start to finish in a professional like manner.

Poyners have a through knowledge of rules and regulations, great moving gear and most importantly the necessary skills and experience to make housemoving easy and safe. The cost was very reasonable and the Poyners a pleasure to deal with.

In summary i would recommend Poyner Housemovers to anyone and would go as far to say they are the only option to consider when resiting a house.

After many days visiting house removal yards for a house to be sited on our property, Poyner Houselifting became our choice- not only were they great people to deal with, a professional job was done. We recommend them to any person. If anybody would like to know more details Stewart or Fiona can give our phone number.

Stewart and Fiona made the transporting of our house from Auckland to Whakapirau an amazingly easy and cost effective task.

They were professional and helpful to deal with from beginning to end and the result exceeded our expectations.

Their specialist equipment and friendly staff made the job go without a hitch.

I would have no problem recommending them to anyone thinking about house relocation.

We recently had a house built in the Waikato, which needed moving to our site in Mangawhai. I made contact with Stu and Fiona after talking with friends in the building trade that highly recommended  the Poyner's to me.

From the first contact to the house being resited, Stu and Fiona and the crew made the whole experience stress free and enjoyable with their professional but relaxed manner, a real pleasure to deal with.

Many thanks

We cannot praise Poyner Housemoving highly enough. We have just moved our second house with Stu and Fiona and the whole experience has been stress free.

Such a professional company and reasonably priced. Very little for us to do other than the site preparation.

We had complete confidence in the team at Poyner Housemoving and wouldn't hesitate to use them again if the need should arise.

Thankyou Stu and Fiona for the professional and friendly way you worked with us.

I recently purchased a house from Poyner House Removals. I found both Stewart and Fiona so extremely helpful throughout the whole process.

Fiona was always on hand to answer questions and to guide us through the process including council requirements and recommendations on trades people that have worked with their firm.Stu and his team did a wonderful job of decapitating the house and putting it back together again so you can't actually tell where the roof was removed. There was a lot of structural work i.e re-cladding and replacing bench tops that was also carried out.

We were also fortunate to be able to use their yard to paint the roof while it was at ground level which made life a lot easier.

We have a very steep driveway, but the house was manoeuvred up with minimal impact on the surrounding land. We now have a lovely little cottage snuggled amongst the ferns and are very happy with the result.

I would have no hesitation in recommending the Poyners to anyone looking for a preloved house.

"Stewart & Fiona (and their crew) recently managed the removal & siting of our new bach from Whangarei to our site at Tokerau Beach. The bach arrived safely, ahead of schedule in the early hours of the morning and was ready to move into by early afternoon. The Poyner's operation worked like clock work and we were impressed by their skill and professionalism in managing the events of the day. We would not hesitate to recommend their work to anyone needing a house relocated - great value for money and a professional and friendly service. Thanks for making the whole house move experience painless and an enjoyable one!"

We were both very impressed with your company and the work that as completed. Our process took a long time and your patience with our changes to area and plans was much appreciated. When it did come to time to do the move, we always felt we knew exactly where we were in the process and what was expected of us. Everyone was very helpful and always friendly and we appreciated always being able to get in touch with someone if we had any questions. The work itself was quick,tidy and very professional. Based on our experience we would highly recommend you to others and would definately use you again if we so required.

Hello Fiona and Stewart

Thank you for shifting our new holiday home fromManukau Auckland to Kaiaka Peria, Northland.

We were very pleased with your prompt service and most importantly the way the newly stopped and painted house arrived on site. Only very remedial work needed after being shifted all that distance and over numerous one way bridges is amazing.

Your quotation and invoice was by far the most competitive we received when compared with other Auckland and Whangarei house moving companies that quoted to undertake this project.

I would be pleased to recommend your service to others wanting to relocate a new or preloved building, and am infact considering purchasing another building to relocate to an adjacent block in the not to distant future.

In May 2013 i had my 75m2 house picked up from Drury Auckland and delivered to my Whangarei site on extra high 2.7 meter piles.

I would highly recommend the Poyners to anybody relocating or lifting a building - they were excellent to communicate with- very fair and honest with their price to do the joband the house was delievered and put on its foundations without damage or any problems.

Thank you and very happy with how it turned out.

Do you wish to deal with a trustworthy and reliable company that will make your relocation as smooth as possible? Then talk to us!!

We understand that buying a house can be stressful especially if you haven't done it before. That's why we help and guide you through the process of buying a house and obtaining the necessary consents until your house is on its new site. We can refer you to professionals such as architects or drain layers who work in the area you wish to shift your building to.

We know for many of our clients their house is the home they worked hard for, and they need to know that it will be delivered to the new site safely. We only use one house moving team to ensure we have control over the shift and as owner operators we are on every job. We are members of the New Zealand Heavy Haulage Association and Site Safe. Housemoving is an extremely specialized job and takes years of training and experience and we believe in doing the job right the first time (and every time) and as such we have repeat customers - We are happy to give you phone numbers for clients for whom we have shifted buildings for.

We have two yards with buildings for sale - one at 998 State Highway 12, Maungaturoto and the other at 2471 State Highway One  Kaiwaka
