What our customers are saying

THL relocated a house out of Christchurch’s red zone for me in late 2013 and they were friendly, easy to deal with, and demonstrated competence in all aspects of what they did. Mine wasn’t the easiest of houses to deal with; the house was significantly out of level from the quakes, I specified a mix of foundation types and subfloor materials for the new location, and I insisted on a tight programme. Despite these challenges, THL carefully deconstructed, transported and re-sited the house, delivering a thoroughly professional outcome, on-time and within budget. I’ve been living in my new place for 18months now and I couldn’t be more pleased with the result! I work in the construction industry and therefore expect a high level of service from contractors – Kurt and his team more than delivered on these expectations, and I would have no hesitation working with them again in future.

Deciding to use Transit Homes to shift our house proved to be the right decision! Throughout the whole process Bill, Kurt and their team were helpful, friendly and very easy to deal with. They communicated openly and honestly and kept us fully informed. Relocating The Manse was a complex job which involved separating the ground floor into two pieces, craning off the second story, moving it to our section and then stitching it all back together. Transit Homes capably worked through each challenge as it arose and delivered a quality job according to schedule and within their quoted value. They allowed us to be actively involved throughout the whole process, including letting our son ride in the truck as they shifted it to our section. We can thoroughly recommend using Bill, Kurt and their team for any relocation job.
