Shipping and Removals in Guangzhou

As a large port city and an air hub, shipping household goods to Guangzhou is easy for expats. It is advised to get several quotes from companies as costs and options for services may vary significantly.
Some service providers can completely pack up a house in one country and unload the contents in another, while others offer assistance with only part of the moving process.
Much of the popular expat accommodation in Guangzhou comes already furnished. Furthermore, it is often more expensive to ship furniture from overseas than to buy completely new pieces in Guangzhou. The city is the site of a lot of manufacturing, and expats can sometimes find great deals on electronics. Thus they should choose carefully the items they’ll need to ship to Guangzhou.
Air freight is more expensive but quicker than longer sea shipping routes, so it is recommended when shipping smaller items.
