Need shipping to Hong Kong?  Imove is a specialist UK International Removal company providing a professional removals, export packing and shipping service to Hong Kong and other worldwide destinations.  

We can assist with a small baggage shipment to a full house removal, motorbikes and motor cars. Imove can arrange a share a container service or your own dedicated container for shipping to Hong Kong. We can arrange collection of your shipment from all over the UK and Western Europe.

When planning your move to Hong Kong there are many considerations to take into account; such as how much do you want to send, how much do you want to pay, and whether you want a full packing service, partial packing service, or whether you intend to pack everything yourselves. Then there are budget constraints, how much you have to spend on the removal and shipping costs. Do you want to take your car or motorbike with you, if so what are the costs and documentation requirements in Hong Kong. That’s where the Imove Move Coordinator can help and be on hand to answer all those questions and work with you to arrange the shipping to Hong Kong on time and within your budget.

Our experienced Move coordinators will plan everything for you from providing the initial quotation, packing and collection right through to delivery to your new home in Hong Kong. When planning your shipping to Hong Kong we can quote you for:

Full container load / Sole use container

Depending upon the volume of household goods and personal affects you are intending to ship to Hong Kong you will need a 20ft, 40ft or 40’ high cube sole use container for shipping to Hong Kong. Your household goods and personal effects will be export wrapped and packed at your residence and loaded directly into the shipping container. The container will be transported directly to the docks and loaded on the next available vessel.  Vessel transit time is between 16 and 24 days. On arrival of the vessel in Hong Kong your goods will be customs cleared and delivered to your Hong Kong residence, unloaded, unwrapped and the waste packing materials removed. 

Share a container to Hong Kong.

Sharing a container reduces the cost of shipping as you only pay for the space you need. If you only have some personal belongs to ship or a small volume of furniture then a share a container service is the cheapest way to ship your personal effects & furniture to Hong Kong, as you will only pay for the space your goods occupy in the shipping container.Imove will pack your effects in your home on an agreed date. Your goods will then be transported to our warehouse to be grouped into a shipping container with other clients shipping to Hong Kong. We will advise shipping dates, on arrival of your goods in Hong Kong the container will be customs cleared and our agent will make arrangements to delivery your goods to your new home in Hong Kong.

Costs of shipping to Hong Kong

Prices for shipping to Hong Kong are dependent upon the amount of furniture, household goods and personal items you have to move.  We measure the items and work out the volume in either cubic feet or cubic meters.  Prices are then based on the amount of space your goods will take up in the shipping container. Other factors that affect the cost of the removal and shipping to Hong Kong is the amount of export packing required, cost of the ocean freight, and delivery agent’s costs in Hong Kong. Prices also take into consideration the service level required, whether you require a box packing service or if you are packing yourself, whether you require an un-packing service or a straight forward delivery into rooms designated by you. You may require a special crating service, parking suspensions, ladder lifts, tran-shipment vehicles all these costs will be factored into your removal quotation. 

Packing:

In order to save costs many people opt to pack their own boxes, cartons, or cases in preparation for their international move. It will certainly save on the removal company’s labour costs.  It is important to remember that your goods are going to travel a good distance to Hong Kong and that the packing cartons and boxes should be of good quality. Double wall cartons are the best. Packing boxes.co.uk supply removal packing cartons and provide a next day delivery service. 

When packing your own cartons and boxes for shipping you will need to make a note of the contents of each box for the inventory/packing list that will need to be prepared for the Hong Kong Customs Authorities. You should also bear in mind that owner packed goods will not be covered for damage and breakages by the Removal Companies insurance policy.

Export Packing Service:

Imove provides specialist export packing and wrapping of your possessions. When you are moving overseas you will want to ensure that your furniture and personal effects arrive in the same condition as they left. Our packers are all experts in export packing and loading containers for safe transit across to Hong Kong and across the world. For items of high value we can provide custom built crates.

I was impressed by the communication. IMove dealt with all my queries and requests promptly and efficiently. The crew contacted me directly to advise on their arrival and kept to time. All together a good service and reasonably priced. Thank you.
We recently used Imove International to move all of our household items from UK to Thailand, and found the entire process from initial quote to final delivery very easy. We had a sole use 20ft container, which was perfect for the contents of our 2 bedroom house. The chap who came to do the quote was able to reassure us that the container lorry would be able to reach our house ok, as that was one of our worries. The 2 man packing team arrived at 8:30am on the Thursday and set about wrapping and boxing everything. I can't speak highly enough about how hard they worked that day - it was virtually impossible to get them to stop for a tea break. The only thing it would have been useful to know in advance at that stage was that they wanted us to remove the pedals from our 4 bicycles, and turn the handlebars so that they were in line with the wheels, but it was sorted in a matter of minutes. The following day a 3 man team turned up and completed the packing. The lorry was due a 12:00, but in fact got delayed until about 3:00pm. As the weather was good, the lads moved everything out on to the front drive in the meantime, in order to make the loading faster. I had asked the neighbours to leave the communal parking area free for the day, which made it much easier for the lorry to manoeuvre when it arrived. The loading only took about 30 minutes, and we waved goodbye to our goods, en route to Felixstowe Docks. The thing that amazed me most was that there was not a single scuff mark left on the internal walls of our newly decorated house! Imove had provided us with a link to a web portal which had all the details of our shipment updated on it, including estimated arrival date in Thailand. It also included the name of the ship our container was on, and I was delighted to discover a web site (https://www.marinetraffic.com) where I could track it's progress in real time. (Note to Imove - perhaps you could add that link to your web portal?). About a week before it was due to arrive in Thailand the agent at this end contacted us and talked us through all the paperwork necessary for customs clearance at this end. The ship arrived exactly on schedule, and we visited the agent to drop off passports, ID cards, etc that they needed to clear the shipment with customs. That went very smoothly, and when we returned to the agent to collect our documents we got to meet the driver who was going to deliver the shipment to our house in northern Thailand - a 700km journey. Luckily I was able to give him our exact location on Google Maps, which avoided the hassle of trying to explain a rather obscure location. The lorry arrived exactly on schedule, at 8:30 on a Sunday morning, and again it only took the 4 lads about 30 minutes to unload it. They did offer to unpack everything and remove all the packing materials, but we declined that, as most of our stuff will probably remain in boxes for the next few months while we build a new house here. So, all in all it was a very simple process, and very professionally managed.
The crew worked extra hard and returned on a Sunday to finish our packing. I can't thank them enough. Please feel free to select IMove with confidence. My bit of guidance or recommendation is to sort out the insurance ASAP.
