Mileage at a rate of 50 cents / kilometre will be applied to cover the cost of fuel and road user charges where these costs are significant to the service provided. Mileage is not charged for work completed within Wellington.

Other Charges

Wellington carriers are not well served by our City Council. Inner city and central suburb parking for trucks is limited and VanMan.nz is committed to providing an efficient service. Where parking fees and fines are unavoidably incurred, we will pass them on to you. Other costs reasonably incurred in the delivery of the service will also be passed on to you.

COVID – 19 Update

As a nonessential service, VanMan’s services are suspended for the duration of the COVID-19 / Corona Virus “lock down.”

We hope things normalise at the end of April, but this not certain. We will start scheduling work again when a firm date has been advised.

If your booking with us was disrupted by the lock down we will prioritise your requirements.

If you have any questions, please email us.

Stay well and safe.

Greg Berge and the VanMan team.

Talk to us early, ask for advice and make your needs clear. The more we know about your move, the more able we’ll be to provide the service standards we strive to deliver.


What will it cost?

Your location, load size, property access and your level of preparation will all effect the cost of your move.

The more we know about your move and your moving day pressures the more confidently we can cost and manage your move. Use our online enquiry form to tell us about your move and how you would like us to assist.

If you’re moving your family home within Wellington, from Wellington to another centre or into storage, we’d like to visit you, discuss your needs and preferences and provide you with a considered cost estimate.

If your move is smaller or out of storage, a phone call will probably be enough to get it estimated and booked. Call 0800 826 626.
