George Jack with some of his staff - Founder of Jack House Transit Ltd

We are Building and House Removal Professionals who also specialise in buying and selling used houses which can be relocated directly to your site, repiling, lifting houses for basements and the like. We insure all of the buildings we shift and also offer an optional in-house design service which can help in obtaining your Council consents if you wish.

In 1896, George Jack shifted his first building, in doing so founded the oldest building removal company still in operation in New Zealand today. We are proud to carry on the JACK family name with third and fourth generations currently involved.

You are invited to peruse this website hopefully finding useful information and options to help you start your project.

Try the Process & FAQ link which will answer a lot of your questions about shifting a building.

For details, photos and floor plans of our current stock, follow through the Buildings for sale link.

Be sure to view the Before & After Gallery which shows inspirational examples of what our clients have achieved after their house/building was shifted. This will be added to as we are able.

You will find other useful sections and links along the way, but if you need more information about anything, please feel free to contact us!
