Need help moving commercial goods?

International shipping and import-export from NZ can be confusing and overwhelming... well that’s what our clients have told us before they discovered us at Rocket Freight. Importing cars, for example, requires a permit, thorough checks from appropriate governing bodies and customs clearance.

With all these processes to contend with, clients need all the help and support they can from a reliable freight company. Here at Rocket Freight, we pay attention to details and customise our services accordingly. We want to meet your freight forwarding needs

Does your shipment require hyper-organisation?

That’s where we excel.

We handle the ENTIRE process with passion and care. That includes speaking to your suppliers to arrange air or sea freight, setting you up as an importer or exporter, taking care of customs and MPI clearance, and organising delivery wherever you need.

Fantastic customer service is not just a cliche. Our team are moving magicians who come through with the goods - literally - every single time. Simply drop us a line and we will take care of the rest, leaving you to focus on your business.


"I’ve worked with Rocket Freight to bring in a number of shipments from all parts of the world – and each time, I’ve found Lisa and her team to be professional, efficient, friendly and communicative! They manage the complete process end-to-end, and I always have complete confidence that my goods will arrive on time. I highly recommend the team at Rocket Freight!”

“I transferred all my freight business to Lisa and the team at Rocket Freight after one too many bad experiences with a larger freight company. My only regret was not doing it sooner, we are now experiencing significant savings and have the benefit of one friendly and competent point of contact, I couldn’t recommend Rocket Freight enough and look forward to doing business with them for years to come.”

Moving your household internationally? Moving from Australia or NZ?

Moving house is stressful enough, even without shifting to a whole new country! How much more if you're moving overseas?

The stress of relocating from one place to another often take a toll on one's well-being. With a million things to think about it, you just need someone who knows exactly how to get you and all your belongings (yes even the family pet)  to your destination. That is why instead of taking everything into your own hands, it pays to work with experienced and highly qualified movers to Australia. Working with them will take a lot of weight off your shoulders.

How do you know you're working with the right freight forwarder? One thing you should look at is consideration for your specific requirements. International shipping companies should put you first, not offer cookie cutter freight forwarding and export-import to New Zealand packages that don’t fit your needs.

Rocket Freight gives you the tailor-made, responsive and efficient service you need to make your overseas relocations - moving from NZ to Australia or anywhere - straightforward. We are experts in the moving households, car imports, business exports and a lot more! Our systematic approach to logistics and shipping, facilitated through air freight and sea freight cargo, have enabled us to build a loyal clientele and generate a long list of satisfied customers.

The Rocket Freight Commitment

  • Exceptional customer service at any time of the day or night
  • Competitive prices
  • Complete door to door services
  • Personal management of your export from or import to NZ shipments from pick up to delivery
  • Customised freight forwarding solutions with care

We look forward to hearing from you.
