Business is booming in the Regions!

We would like to assist more people and families to move to one of our beautiful regional towns.

There are many benefits of living in the regions: Earnings are the same as the big cities, costs are way less.

There is less traffic, it’s cheaper to rent or buy a house, there are great schools with many sporting opportunities, and polytechs and universities are accessible. Overall a great lifestyle, better than the cities.

We offer full-time cleaning businesses, and family sized businesses. We are looking for keen couples or families who would like to have their own successful business, with the back up, training and support of a strong national company.

We have immediate start opportunities available in many South and North Island regional towns.


Move to Cromwell, and we will find you a house, and pay the rent for 6 weeks!

CrestClean’s current relocation offer is for the beautiful South Island town of Cromwell. We will arrange a rental house for you, pay the bond, and pay the rent for 6 weeks.
