Lifting House for a Basement

A1 Building Movers are the experts when it comes to house lifting. Our hydraulic lifting equipment ensures that house lifting is even, stable and safe.

House lifting is a great option when you want to add a:

  • Lower level to your existing house
  • Basement
  • Garage
  • Granny flat
  • Games room

House lifting is required when repiling, re-levelling or for laying new foundation work.

With over 30 years in the business, we have the industry knowledge, expertise and experience giving you the assurance that your project is in safe hands.

A1 Building Movers Ltd has over 30 years experience in the trade of house removal.


We have used the services of Dave and his team from A1 Building movers recently to move several Lockwood homes as a turnkey operation. One move in particular was very complicated, with a large, long and high load which Dave was able to move in 2 loads instead of at least 3, thus saving us time and money.

The moves were executed professionally and punctually at a reasonable cost. Dave and his team are hard working and do not let up until the job is completed. A real "can-do" attitude. I would confidently recommend Dave and his crew, with their passion and expertise, to anyone wishing to move a house.

Yours Sincerely

I just want to thank you for your energy, commitment, experience and eye for detail that you and your team displayed when re leveling our family home. While not necessarily challenging, there was a constant stream of unexpected issues that popped up (documentation discrepancies and geotechincal variations). This was complicated by the fact that you were working in Christchurch - a long way from home. Thank you for keeping the project moving.
All the best
