What people are saying

Hey Guys

Just wanted to say Well Done!!! Saw your episode tonight.  What an amazing job!!! Your skilled crew made it look so easy.  You did two moves for our clients when I worked At Jack House Transit and both clients were really impressed with your guys and I can see why.  Just wanted you to know you did a great job.  We always hear the whinging and not often the praise.

 I just wanted to say a massive thank you to all your staff/tradies who assisted with my house removal. You have all been so friendly and helpful. I really couldn’t have asked for better.
Perry finished up today, and I am absolutely delighted with how it is all coming together!
So, thank you so much.

We have been very pleased with the work the CWBR crew have completed, a big thank you to all involved. It has been a huge relief to finally have the house arrive onsite and in good condition, and the care that the team showed when putting it back together. It was obvious that your team is well experienced, and has the necessary machinery to make the near-impossible happen! We would certainly recommend your company to anyone in need of a building relocation.

On behalf of Te Aitanga a Māhaki Trust, thank you for the successful delivery of REWA to Tūranganui. Thanks for your patience, and ongoing advice to us, people who knew nothing about relocating a home, now know a little bit. Dave and the crew were so professional, in communication, arrival, looking after the whare. We wish our other experiences were this seamless.

We look forward to more business with you all in the future.

Hello Kylie and everyone at CWBR, Just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with our very successful house purchase and move process. From my initial contact and purchase agreement on viewing the house with Kylie, with assistance from the friendly office team, Craig’s silent and unseen site visit, and Dave doing such

Kirsten & Tony

I would like to thank you so much for what you did, the finishing work, in a perfect way, professional performance with intelligence. I am so happy to do work with your company in the future. I am appreciative and thankful, I wish you all the best in your business.


Thank you and please pass on thanks to all involved from Gael and I. It has been great to re-establish contact with Craig Walker Building Removals and to re-experience the high professional standards that we were so impressed with 25 years ago. Rangi, and his team executed the removal extremely well and represented the business to high standards.

I popped over this afternoon around lunchtime to Santiago Cres. (I finish early on a Thursday) and briefly met with the men there while they were on their lunch break and was lucky enough to see them put the trailer under the house after that. ( I stood on the other side of the road well away as I was very mindful of health and safety).

It was fascinating watching them all work independently but together like a choreographed play of movement. They all seemed to know exactly what to do to support each other without much talking and not much hesitation. I guess they have done it all many times before.

I know people are often quick to complain and probably don’t take the time to say how well the job was going. But I think the workmen are a credit to you all as they worked very efficiently and cooperatively together, sensibly and calmly.

It really was an enjoyable sight to see.

So I just wanted to pass on how impressed I was with those guys and the job they are doing. amazing, and obviously they have had very good training and experience.

I hope you are well and have gotten through lockdown ok.  Following from my voice message last week I wanted to say thanks very much to you and the CWBR team for the amazing job you did in arranging and ultimately taking our old place away pre-lockdown.

Rachael and I obviously had mixed emotions watching our house of 8 years being taken away but the level of skill and professionalism along with the huge effort put in on that last day from your guys was outstanding and a credit to your business.

I assume you pulled out all the stops to get our house off in the nick of time ahead of NZ’s move to level 4 so thank you very much for your efforts.  We would recommend you any time.

Mark & Rachel Williams

I want to express my appreciation to you all for delivering such exemplary service in relocating our house last month. You rescued us from imminent disaster and we are so grateful. You worked to a tight deadline & met all requirements and promises with a high professionalism. Your team of workmen all spoke so highly of their boss, company and now I know why. 

Kaye Mckean

Very grateful for the way the move wentVery professional. The best of our moves

Ralph & Marjolijn

A big thank you to you, and your team for another fantastic job in the delivery of our new house.  Again your company has been extremely professional to deal with.

Linda & Brent

I just wanted to thank you for everything.  David and his boys did a fantastic job, so professional and so much fun to be around.  Could not have asked for a better team to make us feel at ease.

All the professional support from you and Craig.  Chris with his drawings and dealing with the Council trying to make sense of things and guiding us along the path with Council was more than one could hope for.  It certainly was trying but Chris got there for us.

So I hope you and your family have a lovely Christmas holiday and enjoy some well-earned rest.

We have no hesitation in recommending Craig Walker Building Removals to anyone who is thinking of going down that road.

Leonie Jarman

I just wanted to thank you for the way the house move went, the professionalism, and the amazing customer service provided by everyone involved.

Rangi was a hero, and I will forever be grateful for him agreeing to reposition the house after I hadn’t considered how far it stuck out into the paddock.

He also identified an issue with the foundation plan which needed to be corrected by the draughtsperson, so another problem avoided.

He and his team worked tirelessly and efficiently to get the job done.

You have great people working for you on these projects.  Would you please convey my appreciation to everyone.


Just wanted to thank you all so very much.  Your team has worked so hard over the last few days, and are a real credit to CWBR.

It pretty special to have the house here now.  She’s not so pretty at the moment but already feels “right” and like home.

We will be forever grateful to you all when we are making new memories over the coming years.

Dayna & Jason

I just wanted to mention that we are so happy with the work you all have done, and with the work last night, and continuing today with Dave and his team.

Dave is just brilliant to deal with, as you all are.  Excellent communication.

Excellent management of his team during the move and a really great job being done.  We feel very well looked after, so thank you.

Mike Holloway

We never thanked you for your amazing service, and commitment.  Our experience dealing with the Craig Walker team has been brilliant.

Nothing was too hard or too difficult.  We highly recommend you to anyone who would want to relocate a house.

CWBR has been one of our best service experiences ever, period.

Hi Kylie,

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you, Craig, Dave and all the crew that moved “Beau” onto our section so professionally.

We are so pleased to have the house on site.  All the family watched it arrive and come down the long driveway, hvaing spent the night camping out at the section.

We were both impressed with the service from start to finish and wouldnt hesitate in recommending your compnay to other people.

Thanks so much,

Jo Montague & Kate Blenkinsopp

Just a quick note to thank you and your team for the house move this week.
Your guys were great, and the house looks better in position than I was thinking it would.
Glad to finally get it all done!
Thanks to David too, he ran a pretty slick operation getting it onsite and in position.
Hi Kylie
 I have never seen something done so effortlessly and with such precision!! so impressive, we are chuffed.
Just to say how awesome they also were with that beautiful truck!!
Morag, Jon & Nath

Hi Kylie, I just want to thank you and your awesome husband and his crew for their work this week. You guys are the best, as I’ve always said. 

Dave and his team are just brilliant! Not trying to single any of them out they’re all awesome, but the older Māori gent is inspirational he works so hard. 
Thank you all
