General Relocation

We relocate buildings throughout New Zealand from small buildings and garages through to multi-storey buildings and multi-piece shifts. We can look after your building relocation from transport-only through to a total package that includes all consents, engineering and final compliance.

We operate high-lift synchronised jacking plants offering standard foundation systems through to bracing piles, driven piles, and screw piles if required.

We also offer innovative onsite building relocation equipment that we utilise for moving multi-storey buildings for foundation replacement or section configuration.

Much of our relocation plant is purpose-built to speed up and ease the relocation process and reduce costs for our clients. All of our plant is maintained to a high standard and operated under strict health and safety processes. We strive to ensure our relocation staff are correctly trained in their work, and their goal is to make the relocation process as easy as possible for our clients.

Smith Building Relocation also proudly offer specialist oversize relocation equipment to cater for the needs of oversized plant an machinery movements throughout New Zealand. We are regularly involved with freight forwarding and shipping companies relocating structures of similar size to houses, and work closely with our heavy haulage division.
