Conroy Removals Reviews


  • “We have used Conroy Removals Porirua 3 times now. Each time has been a very good experience with friendly polite people. We had a conformation call a few days before the move and a txt on the day letting us know they were on their way, brilliant. Highly recommend this company. I notice some of the comments above are not for Conroys Porirua, you really should make sure you have the right firm before giving negative feedback. Thanks for an easy move Conroys.” Peter via NoCowboys
  • “Prompt, efficient, reliable, courteous, and much more cost-effective than the alternatives I investigated. It was just a small job – one piece of furniture from Whangarei to Hamilton. The truck driver even thought to avoid damaging the trees in my drive. I wasn’t surprised by this experience because I have used the same company twice before when moving the whole household from Wellington to Havelock North in 1989 and from Havelock North to Hamilton in 1992, got the same excellent service both times. It really pays to stick with experienced, long-established companies.”  C M King via
  • “Cannot recommend Conroy Removals highly enough. We used these guys as the NZ part of our move from Melbourne. Hard workers, thoughtful and considerate. Would absolutely use again.” RT Yellow via Yellow NZ
  • “Thank you for making a stressful day much easier!  Big boquets for Henry the very patient man at the end of the phone trying to sort everything for us when circumstances beyond our control messed up from the beginning, excellent communication!  I wasn’t there for the actual container unload but my father was very happy and said the guys were really great. If we ever need to move again, we will be moving with Conroys” Customer testimonial via Conroy’s website


  • “This company is a total scam. They secured my contract thru advertising, malicious manipulation. Once they had control over my consignment, they began asking me for exorbitant amounts of money. From $677 for delivery, and copy of signed documents, they took possession of my shipment. Subsequently, they demanded $4040. When that was paid, they demanded an additional $990. They then told me I had to pay extra as there were penalties. When I asked them to show me documentations for penalties imposed by MPI and Customs etc, they said “never mind, these have now been waived, but btw you owe us a few thousand dollars more in storage as your cargo was held up due to non payment of (non existent) penalties.”It has been3 months since they took possession of my cargo by making false promises to deliver within a few days. I have filed a complaint with DISPUTES TRIBUNAL. The company simply runs a scam.They took pictures of my cargo, and shared sensitive information with other parties. The consignment was left unguarded, open to theft pilferage and destruction. Over 400 pictures reveal the state of condition my shipment is in.It is a ring of unethical, unscrupulous, dishonest movers, with alliances with other similar movers across teh world. Once they take possession your cargo, they threaten, intimidate, blackmail, extort you into paying more and more and more. For further details, please see our CONROY REMOVALS SCAM page on facebook. Or contact me before you make a decision to hire this company.” Msameer via Ranked By Review
  • “We have used Conroys for house moves many times now but the latest move has resulted in very poor time management ( which we were compensated for)and damage to some of our goods which has never happened in the past. Now we have to pay the excess on furniture that was damaged due to lack of care by Conroys staff. Bit like your car insurance charging you the excess when another party has crashed into your car. Not really fair i think. It seems that the good old days of Derek Purver when 3 staff turned up to load and unload are gone and someone thinks it best to only send 2 staff and the customer helps to unload the truck. Shame to see such an organised firm go downhill.” Customer testimonial via Conroy’s website
  • “Terrible service!! The worst Customer Service! no reply to emails then providing a wrong info, completely unprofessional! At the end I had to pick up my parcel by myself from their depot! Was waiting 8 days for the delivery and always heard tomorrow. Had an email confirmation with the delivery date what was false! no email/ a phone call to me advice me about a new date. Nobody cares about your stuff there! Been asked to pay $75 for the quarantine, had to sent many emails and “beg “ them to explain me why i had t pay this! No apology for the bad service, rude agents! I send so many parcels around the world but to be honest I never ever seen so rude and unprofessional customer Service! AVOID!!”  Aleksandra via NoCowboys Review for Conroy Removals
