International Move Service in Beijing

International Door to Door Move from China
A good move planning is a half success to an efficient and hassle-free move. It’s always advisable to plan 4 ~ 6 weeks ahead of actual moving taken place. Please refer to our moving counting down for details on planning.


However, if you have to move in emergency or very short time, with our emergency systems BeijingMover does have the flexibility in moving you as per your tight schedules.


The following 7 steps will lead you the way to a successful ‘door to door’ move.

Step 1–Premove Survey
Each move is different and with customer’s special needs. A premove survey plays a vital role to establish the chains of understanding to meet customer’s needs. We provide you this service FREE of charge and without any obligation.


Contact BeijingMover to setup a date of premove survey. One of BeijingMovers' moving consultant will come to meet you. And right from the start, he/she will be your personal contact to take care of you until final completion of your move in destination.


It will take 20 minutes to one hour for a premove survey.

Assess quantities: our moving specialist will walk through with you room by room,
record all items you point out for moving, from which to enable us to work out
the estimated volume of your shipment. As the quotation is based on the estimated
volume,please make sure that any item to move is pointed out. If you intend to buy
more furniture/items or have any items from your office, please inform our moving
specialist at time of survey.

Brief moving process and necessary paperwork: after walk through our moving
specialist will sit down with you and provide you with all necessary information
relative to your move - professional packing & protection on your valuable goods,
antique inspection for old items, insurance, customs paperwork at origin/destination,
shipping method & transit time, destination delivery process.

Specify moving details: we will discuss with you for packing/moving schedule,
destination access, heavy/bulky items handling, record your special requirement &
concerns and answer all your questions to your satisfaction.

Step 2–Quotation and Confirmation
Based on the premove survey results and communications, BeijingMover will create a moving package specifically tailored to your relocation needs with realistic cost-effective rates. The moving package will be sent to you in short time via email/handover at your convenience. You will find all details in this moving package – competitive rates, inclusion/exclusion, insurance policy/premium, requirement on customs document, payment term, moving schedules etc… For your benefit all costs are clearly communicated and understood before any work is started.

Shortly after the moving package sent out, your moving specialist will contact you to answer your questions and discuss any aspect details you may concern.


Once the quotation is accepted, please sign and chop by company stamp (if company pay) and fax the copy to our office. Packing date/time will be setup according to your time schedule.



Step 3–Get Goods Ready for Packing

Insurance
BeijingMover has arranged a comprehensive program of household goods transit
insurance underwritten by American Home Assurance Company (a member
company of AIG). The insurance premium is calculated at a percentage of
your declared value.


An Insurance Declaration Inventory Form will be delivered to you for
completion. Please read carefully of insurance terms shown on reverse side
of application form before fill-in.

It is most import that your completed Insurance Declaration Form is
returned to us prior to commencement of the packing.

Antique Inspection
Any Chinese old furniture or small decoration items(carpets/vases/wooden
pieces, etc…) need to be inspected by Chinese Relic Bureau and obtain
Antique Export Certificate before shipping it out of China.
BeijingMover can make reservation with inspection officers to come to your home
for inspection, or for small quantity BeijingMover can send them to inspection
center for inspection. It’s important to schedule the inspection as
early as possible especially in a busy moving season.


Customs Paperwork Preparation

Please refer to our moving package in the section of ‘Customs Clearance
in Origin & Destination’ for the documents required. Make sure to get it
ready before packing. For certain destinations the overseas customs forms
can only be completed after your arrival in your new country.

Some client will prefer to pack personal effects (clothes, books…) by
themselves. You can call us or complete & return the Premove Carton
Request Form to our office. Upon receipt of your request BeijingMover will
deliver cartons and material to you for premove packing. Please leave any
breakable items/electronics appliances/furniture to BeijingMover's packers for
professional packing and protections. Refer to our Guideline for Premove
Packing for more details.

Step 4–Professional Packing
On the packing date BeijingMover's packing crew will arrive at your place punctually. One English-speaking packing supervisor will introduce the packing crew to you and will brief the working schedule. Then he will walk through with you room by room to have a picture in mind on goods to pack.

The packing supervisor will communicate with you during the packing and make sure all your requirement is followed carefully and strictly.

Organized by the packing supervisor, packers will start to pack your goods with suitable packing material, with heavy/bulky items/valuables often being specially crated so to ensure that each piece of goods receives the best protection during its transportation.

Each packed boxes will be marked with a series number and description of content. A consistent packing inventory list will be made during the packing, you will be asked to sign on the packing list after packing to confirm the content inside and the packages. A copy will be then passed to you for records.

Once the packing is completed, the packing supervisor will inspect with you room by room to make sure nothing left behind before them leave.

Necessary paperwork (customs documents, original insurance form, contact form, job evaluation form, etc…) will be collected from you after packing.

Step 5–Origin Customs Clearance, Shipping and Storage

Your valuable possessions are handled with care at all times. Your shipment is always under constant tracking and supervision from port of origin to destination. You can check the status of your goods at any time.


We can provide storage for your possessions at our warehouse after packing or at destination upon your request.



Step 6–Destination Clearance and Delivery
