Oamaru and Timaru Removals

Allied is proud to service Ashburton, Timaru and Oamaru from its centralised location in Washdyke, Timaru. These vibrant rural communities are well serviced by State Highway One which links you with the rest of New Zealand. The port of Timaru can also service your international relocations, along with providing another option for your domestic requirements.

Timaru is a busy little city located almost half way between Christchurch and Dunedin. It has its own international port which services the major primary industries of Dairy and Meat.

Timaru offers a balance of urban and rural, located right on the coastline but also only a few hours away from the mountains where fishing, skiing, mountain biking and tramping are the common pursuits. Allied Moving Services has its own branch, staff and storage facility in Timaru, located in the Washdyke suburb where most of Timaru’s new industries have located themselves.
