Our Story

Why the name Monarch Moving?


One of nature’s most famous journeys is the mystery of the great annual migration of Monarch butterflies. Monarch butterflies are the only insects to migrate such vast distances and at each stage of their journey they transform. Their metamorphosis sees them growing from an egg into a caterpillar through the chrysalis stage to become something entirely new.

As they are known for their incredible resilience throughout this annual journey, Monarch butterflies are the ultimate symbol for change, adaption, and transformation. We chose this symbol and name for our business because we realise with every move, our clients are also transitioning from one stage of their lives to the next.

Your journey from one location to another, and all the changes that go along with it is a transformative process which marks the beginning of a new phase in your life.

While you may be packing up some parts of your current home and belongings to take along with you, an entirely new adventure lies in wait.

Just like the “Monarch butterflies complete their journey in such an optimal, predetermined way…” we strive to help you in the same way, with yours.
