About Fragile Removals

A friendly family-owned removalist    

After over 10 years in the industry, Fragile Removals is one of the most experienced and trusted removalists in the North Island.

Founder Stephen Foote and his family have made a life out of being the best and friendliest moving team around. Our fleet is comprised of well-maintained modern vehicles, we operate like a well-oiled machine and our prices won’t break the bank.

From the first box until the final load – and all points in between – Fragile Removals is here to help you whether your move is residential or business . If you need assistance organising storage and insurance or packing your possessions, stock or equipment, just give us a call.

Serving all of the North Island

Fragile Removals services homes and offices across the Waikato region. Going farther afield, we also provide an express service to locations around the North Island. If your pick-up and drop-off points are within 700km of Waikato, then most loads are delivered within 24 hours.

Some of areas we service:

  • Cambridge
  • Hamilton
  • Te Awamutu
  • Matamata
  • Auckland

  • Gisborne
  • New Plymouth
  • Wairapa

The moving truck fleet to suit your needs

It can be surprising how little space an average apartmentful of home furnishings takes up. Likewise, it is equally surprising just how much you can accumulate in a five-bedroom house over time.

Decades of experience means we’re experts at estimating which truck you’ll need to move all your possessions in the most efficient way. 

Our truck sizes range from 6-tonne/40 cubic-metre units out to 9-tonne/60 cubic-metre vehicles.

Contributing to the local and global community

As well as being a local North Island business committed to the national economy, Fragile Removals is also engaged in broader charity work.

As major corporate sponsors of both World Vision and UNICEF,  Fragile Removals aims to help people across the world, not just in New Zealand.

As well as this, Fragile Removals often provides free transport services to people affected by natural disasters, or who have just met with the misfortunes of life.

About Stephen Foote , CEO

Established by Stephen Foote, Fragile Removals has become a successful business that’s still dedicated solely to the North Island. We are proud to be a friendly, medium-sized, family owned and operated removal company.

Stephen still manages day-to-day operations. Right from the start he instilled a business philosophy that has remained constantly focused on satisfying every customer at a fair and reasonable cost.

Stephen’s simple motto:

A good job at a fair price.

“After many years of operation, we enjoy an enviable reputation throughout the industry and the wider community at large,” Stephen says.

“Our company is large enough to cope and small enough to care on a personal basis. With that in mind, should any client have concerns that aren’t being met by our Operations Department, I am personally available to answer questions and resolve any issues.”
