International Moving to China

As the country with the largest population in the world at 1.38 billion, China has always been a popular destination to move to. The government estimates that there are currently over 600,000 expats in China today, and that number is only growing. With economic opportunities and the prospect of a rich new cultural experience, there is no wonder why so many people are moving to China.

Moving your household goods to China from the US takes time and proper planning. You have to consider your living situation, time frame, importing costs, and any regional taxes on specialty items. Our job as a full service international mover is to help make every part of your move go as smoothly as possible and with 40 years of experience as an international moving company, you can be assured that your move is in safe hands.

So while you focus on the most important steps of setting up your new life in China, we can handle all the stress and logistics of wrapping up your life here in the US and moving it to your new home.
