Accommodation & International Removals to New Zealand
There are plenty of accommodation options in New Zealand, from ranch-style family homes to modern bachelor apartments and expats will find they have plenty of choice. Do you want to live in land or are you searching for a home close to one of the beautiful beaches? Owing to the large number of forests in New Zealand, many houses are made from wood; it is always wise to check that insulation is adequate.
Another point to remember is that houses facing north will get the most sun, unlike homes in the UK. Properties in the larger cities such as Hamilton, Christchurch and Auckland will be more expensive than more rural locations. Most expats will usually decide to rent a property until they get a feel for the local property market.

Schools & International Removals to New Zealand
Education for your children is priority number one for any parent. The quality of education in New Zealand is amongst the best in the world and expats should have no problems finding a suitable school. State education is fully funded by the government and cities such as Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington will have a good choice of schools. Unless expats have permanent residency, they will need to look at either private or international schools.
You may wish to research New Zealand schools in the areas you are looking to rent or buy a house. See www.minedu.govt.nz for information on the New Zealand education system and reviews of New Zealand schools.
Private schools still receive about a quarter of their funds from the Government, often making them a cheaper option than international schools. Help to select a school can be found at: Schools Portal.
There are three international schools in New Zealand:
Auckland International College
John McGlashan College
