How to Move to China from the USA
Estimate the Volume of Goods
When moving to China, the best place to begin to calculate the amount you are shipping. With an estimate size, we can better prepare you with the info you need for a successful move.
Use our Moving Calculator to create an estimate for the volume of your goods. For people who don’t know their move size yet, we also have preset volumes to quote on from 10 boxes all the way to a 4+ bedroom home.
Get Your Cost to Move to China
The cost to move to China depends on many different factors. Details like volume, origin, destination city, and service type all affect the price. An example is moving from LA to China will have a different price than NY to China. This is the case even if all other factors are the same. For this reason, our representatives create custom quotes specific to each move.
