Iam am writing this in regard to the contact we had with Brittons and our contact over this time with Elwyn.

I would like to express our thanks for the great service that Elwyn and his team provided. From the first contact with Elwyn he was always helpful and communicative. Nothing was a problem no matter what questions I put to him.

The job he and his team provided in moving our house onto our section we had subdivided was fantastic. The team was professional and the moving of the house went without a hitch. A  tidy section was left behind which was most appreciated.

Please pass on our thanks to Elwyn and his team in Hastings as a job well done.😍

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for all the time and effort that has been put in to accomplish the move of the two houses to Stephens Crescent.

Thank you so very much for achieving the moves on the dates we agreed I know that it has not been an easy journey but I really appreciate everything that everyone has done to ensure that the house moves went smoothly.  It was a privilege to watch the move and a credit to the crew who carried out the work.

I look forward to working with you on other moves.

Kind Regards

Subject: FW: Whitireia Foundation Scholarship End of Year Reminders

Hi Paul

Please find the attached update letter from Stewart Hallam who is the recipient of the Brittons Housemovers Scholarship this year. 

He has been studying the NZ Certificate in Electrical Engineering so will soon be finishing for the year and will be looking to obtain an apprenticeship so he can finish his qualification.

Dear Sir/Madam

Britton’s Housemovers Ltd,

Thank you again for this scholarship. I am coming to the end of my course and I have completed and passed everything including the dreaded final exam, I really feel that being awarded the scholarship has helped me push myself to do my best. It gave me a sense that someone believed in me, not that I don’t have friends and family who do. But before this course I was living in a holding pattern not doing anything and struggling with poor self image. Now I am much more focused and up beat moving on to the next goal getting an electrician apprenticeship. The tutors and staff at Whitireia have been knowledgable, helpful and kind. I cannot thank you enough it really helped.

All the best

Stuart Hallam


Just wanted to let you know that we were absolutely thrilled with the job your guys undertook for us to move our house on site in Paraparaumu last week.  And not only were we impressed with the “smooth sailing” of the move but also all the kids at Paraparaumu School and half our neighbourhood too who were watching on!


Your team were professional, efficient and friendly and not only could they operate those massive trucks with a house on-board requiring great precision and skill, but boy can they run with a wheelbarrow full of concrete when required – we were indeed impressed!!!


Could you please pass onto your crew what a great job they did and that they exceeded our expectations in relocating our house in terms of speed, skill and with absolutely no damage – we couldn’t be happier!


We’ve attached a couple of photos for you to add to your no doubt already extensive portfolio of successful house moves and once again thank you for a job well done.

Best wishes,

Murray & Charmaine - Paraparamu






To Brittons,


I would like to thank you and your team for a thoroughly professional job. The expertise of Brittons was obvious throughout. I fully understand this type of work is fraught with difficulties and it was a privilege to observe the team at work.


lt seemed to me that everyone was on the ball, actively involved at all times communicating clearly and working hard to minimise the possibility of problems. l found the guys were always helpful, polite and patient with my requests.


What a great bunch! Thanks also to you personally. Your patience and flexibility was much appreciated.I would be happy to be a reference should you need one in the future.

Just a message to compliment you on the men who recently moved the house at 44 Golders Road, Upper Hutt. That is the best organised job I have seen for many years, nobody standing around, and all knowing what to do. And no swearing either! Most impressive. (I watched from no 46).

Regards, Frank

Afternoon Elwyn;  you've seen I've asked kapiti to give you the rest of your money,  but I wanted to add that I was most impressed with the genial and helpful way Lance and his crew went about their job.  One of the neighbours said "They look like a bunch of pirates but they are SO polite!"  I did not envy Lance and co crawling about in 2" of mud in 18"

of space under the building for most of a day doing the final levelling.

So thank you and your team;  it's been a pleasure working with you and I would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone in glowing terms.

You guys keep me coming back!  Thank you for making it so easy to move houses.  I've just moved my second house, and it was as great an experience as it was the first time with you.

Your exceptional customer care, work ethic and attention to detail will keep me coming back for more.  First Rate!

Hi Deane

It was a pleasure working with you, and we were particularly grateful for the quick turnaround once buildling consent came through.  Your guys did a great job with delivery and on site.

Thanks again and all the best!




Thank you Paul.

You and your crew did a fantastic job last night. You clearly run an excellent operation and have developed an admirable & seamless crew.
The Brittons crew have worked hard every step of the way and have displayed huge respect & expertise in the preparation of the house.
Yesterday was a particularly long day, followed by a long night.
I appreciate the magnitude of this house move, after watching the team navigate the streets of Wellington.
Unbelievably impressive! We are very grateful you agreed to assist our vision in preserving the history of this house and giving her a new lease of life, given its complexities.
We praise your work to date.
Thank you.
