China is one of the world’s most rapidly growing economies and with more and more people moving to China from the UK or relocating to China having spent some time in the UK, PACK & SEND have a range of services to help you move your personal effects to China whether you are moving for business or are a student moving back to China after finishing your studies in the UK.
We will arrange everything for you from an initial assessment and quote for your move right through to customs clearance in China and delivery to your door – whether that be in Shanghai, Beijing or any other location in China.
We can also provide that extra peace of mind for your personal effects by putting in place cover against loss or damage whilst in transit for any item of any value.
PACK & SEND are proud of our high levels of customer service and our No Limits culture means that we will go the extra mile in putting together a solution for your international shipping requirement that is tailored to your needs no matter what your timescales or budget.
Whether your requirement for shipping to China is large or small, PACK & SEND’s wide range of international shipping services means we can handle your international shipment and delivery regardless of size either using our international sea freight or international air freight service.
Our professional packing solutions also mean that no matter how valuable or fragile your items may be our packers will be able to pack them for shipment to China to ensure your possessions are well protected for the journey.
Just like any other country, China does have restrictions over what can be imported to the country. Things that cannot be imported include alcohol over 24%, currency, some foods and certain medicines. A full list can be found here – http://english.customs.gov.cn/home/index. Whilst these goods are prohibited for import, solutions can be found in some circumstances, contact your local service centre for more information.
Just like with shipping to any country, the time it takes to ship to China can be very variable as a result of customs clearance. We do have some estimates of how long things might take to reach China. By sea we estimate things to take 8-10 weeks and by an estimated air 7-9 days.
