Hello Mike,

A short note to say thank you for giving us Arama’s name as the person to organise our Building Consent.

He was great to work with and also had good advice. Easy to talk to.

Kind Regards



Hey Mike,

Just wanted to say a HUGE thanks to you and your team for all that you have done.

Thanks for being patient with me while we trawled through dozens of houses only to realize the 2nd house I looked at was the one I had already fallen in love with.

Thank you for organizing your draftsman to measure and draw my house seeing mine couldn’t make it through the Auckland border due to lockdowns.

You’ve always gone the extra mile and given great, honest advice.

I’m a solo mum so this was always going to be a huge undertaking with 2 under the age of 6.
You’ve made it seamless!!

Thanks to Andy and Bob for always keeping me in the loop as to timing of the shift etc and a HUGE thank you to your boys that did the move!!
Such pride was taken in there work. The job was done quickly and efficiently, big ups to you guys!

I will continue to recommend you to everyone


Kia ora Mike,We had your builder here on Monday this week to finish off the last of our house relocation. We love our new home and wanted to share with you how thrilled we are with the job your team have doneFrom the very first chat with Mike about viewing a possible house through to this final week we have had nothing but outstanding service. Mike listened to what we were looking for and found us that house. The house we purchased was as advertised, in excellent condition, no fake photos just the real deal.

Communication back and forward, initially with Mike and later with Rangi and Andy, was excellent. They responded to all if our questions quickly and with an obvious wealth of knowledge.

On moving day the team with Rangi were absolutely fantastic,  years of experience was forefront of everything they did,  our house arrived on time and in excellent condition, despite being cut in half. The focus, precision and careful use of high tech gear was evident throughout the lowering of our house off trailers and onto temporary piles. These guys were amazing!!!!

All of the tradesmen associated with Forde Brothers ie, piling team  where awesome.

After the move Andy took over and again answered all of our questions patiently and again with a wealth of knowledge and used his connections needed to make our relocation a smooth one. The builders that came to finish off were hard working, efficient and again full of experience in this field.

We would like to extend a huge thank you to Mike and his friendly and experienced relocation team. As first time relocators we were nervous about the idea of relocating a home but if we do it again we will only use Forde Brothers.


“Hi Mike , house safe to site this morning, just wanted to say how professional it all was, your trucks and wagons looked great, your guys were quiet and efficient, Bob is just so lovely both today and on the phone . Already recommended you to our ITM friend and will continue to do so. Looking forward to part 2. Please pass on our thanks to your guys you run a great operation. thank you.


We just wanted to say thanks for everything and to let you know what an awesome bunch of guys you have working for you!You have obviously established a great culture in your company.

We are really impressed with how the guys showed so much respect towards us, the equipment and each other. It was awesome to see the older guys mentoring and encouraging the younger ones and the work ethic of all of them is fantastic.

Andy did a great job of coordinating everything and keeping me calm! The main crew of Ethan, Chris, Charlie and Caleb were a pleasure to have around as were all the boys that came and went over the few days. You are all welcome at ours anytime for a beer, feed or a bed.

And especially thanks to you for your patience and advice. The house looks great in its new home and now the hard work begins…


What a day!  Your team rock!  Our special thanks to the guys for the successful delivery and placement of the house – absolutely incredibly Amazing!

For a first timer buying a relocatable, what an experience it has been.   From the very first meeting with you, I don’t know what it was, but felt confident right from the get go.

Your removal team whom you spoke highly of at our meeting – they have been absolutely amazing and please convey our hugest thanks to them all.  Even though we weren’t there in person, we received great feedback from our builder and the footage says it all too!  Andy and Rangi have been in touch with me every step of the way and have been a great pleasure to deal with , so again, huge thanks. I hope the guys enjoyed their beers!


We would like to say how impressed we were with the delivery of Ambury to our site. We realise now that it was a big job which your crew did really well.I think that I was most impressed with the care they took and the pride they have in their work. Thank you for all your efforts.


Thank you Mike , and your team, for all your help. You made the daunting tasks of selecting, purchasing and moving our new home to its site a breeze.


Just like to say many thanks for restoring my faith in your industry, your team was great and everything went as planned and promised. Look forward to doing it again!


Having brought and moved a number of homes over the past decade I have had my share of horror stories. Forde Brothers stands head and shoulders above the rest in terms of professionalism, communication and the ability to get the job done. Well done guys, I will definitely be back.


I wanted to let you know we’re really happy with the house & super impressed with the job your team did.



Thank you Forde Brothers. Great doing business with you. Nailed it again.


When we need a home removed from site it is critical that it is removed on time. We need to deal with a reliable company that delivers on time. Forde Brothers is that company.
