Removal Service To Hong Kong

Simpsons International Removals is a leading removal company, offering you a comprehensive range of services if you are looking to move your belongings to Hong Kong, each tailored to meet different needs and budgets.

Sea Freight Service – Container Shipping

For those who might be moving larger quantities of goods or seeking an even more cost-effective solution, sea freight services are also available. Whether that’s a full-load 20ft or 40ft container for larger moves or a part-load container for smaller quantities, sea freight is known for its economic value, especially for substantial moves, and while it may take longer than road transport, it offers a reliable and cost-effective solution for transporting your goods over longer distances.

Air Freight Service – For Small Moves

For the quickest transportation of your belongings to Hong Kong, air freight is the recommended option. This express courier service is ideal for smaller moves, such as sending boxes or luggage. Air freight stands out for its speed, making it the perfect choice for those who need their items to arrive in Hong Kong as quickly as possible. However, it is important to note that while air freight is the fastest method, it is generally more expensive than road or sea freight and is best suited for larger volumes of goods.

Hong Kong Removals FAQ Guide & Moving Checklist

How much do removals to Hong Kong from the UK cost?

The cost of removals to Hong Kong obviously varies greatly depending on the quantity you are taking and where in Hong Kong you are moving to. The good news is that, as so many people move from the UK to Hong Kong, the cost of removals is surprisingly cheap – especially to Hong Kong Island (such as Central, Wan Chai and Causeway Bay) and Kowloon (including Tsim Sha Tsui and Mong Kok).

However we are also able to deliver further afield including the The New Territories (Sha Tin, Tsuen Wan, Tai Po) as well as places such as Lamma Island and Lantau Island.

The cheapest removals to Hong Kong are by sea and costs per cubic feet decrease significantly as volume increases. You’ll certainly find that it is a lot cheaper to ship your furniture and other items than to replace them all when you arrive in Hong Kong.

We offer a range of removal options depending on your budget. This includes economy part load road freight or shared shipping container, dedicated road freight or full container load by sea or express air freight for small and urgent moves.

You can use our online cost calculator to get an initial price or for a more accurate estimate, we highly recommend booking a home or video survey to get a more formal quote for the cost of your move to Hong Kong.

Remember our removal quotes are for a comprehensive door-to- door service including packing and standard customs clearance. Our quote does not include customs fees and duties which may be payable to local authorities on arrival.

How long do removals to Hong Kong from the UK take?

Removals to Hong Kong usually take 5-7 weeks for our full container service and 7-9 weeks for our part load (groupage) service.

These shipping times are for delivery to port, you will need to allow additional time for customs clearance on arrival in Hong Kong.

When relocating your belongings to Hong Kong, Simpsons’ comprehensive packing services have you covered. Our expert packing teams excel in export wrapping your furniture and efficiently packing boxes to ensure their safe arrival in flawless condition. Our highly trained packing crews specialise in packing for overseas moves and have years of experience.

We offer a range of export quality double-walled boxes of different sizes including tea cartons, book cartons and bike cartons. Other packing materials include blanket wrap, flow pack, bubble wrap and secure packing tape.

We can also provide bespoke custom wood cases and crates for delicate and special items that need additional protection. Our service also includes specialised antique packing, ensuring these valuable items are meticulously protected.

With our extensive experience in managing delicate and fragile items, we assure that every piece, from everyday furniture to precious antiques, receives the highest level of care and professional handling throughout the moving process.

We provide a range of storage services for your belongings if you moving to Hong Kong. We have storage facilities across the UK and can also store your goods in Hong Kong until you are ready to receive them.

We have highly secure warehouses and can offer a range of flexible storage solutions depending on your needs including short term and longer term storage

International Removal Insurance for your Move to Hong Kong

We would recommend taking out Shipment Protection Cover for peace of mind whilst your belongings are on their journey.

Whilst we have expert packers who specialise in international removals and use accredited shipping lines who take special care of personal shipping containers, we cannot control every eventuality.

Just as you will likely have home contents insurance in the UK and travel insurance for your family, we recommend you discuss with your Move Manager the available options for protecting your belongings whist they are in transit.

Removal and Shipping Services for Hong Kong

At Simpsons we offer a variety of overseas removal and shipping services to meet your needs. Do not worry if you are unsure about which is most suitable for you as our advisers will be happy to talk you through the different options.

Full Household Overseas Removal Service

For full household removal of a 3 or 4 bedroom house we would usually recommend a full shipping container for your sole use. These usually come in two sizes –20 and 40 ft.

We will pack the container at your house and it will be secured and customs sealed before heading off to the port.

Shared Container (Part Load) Overseas Removal Service

For smaller moves with furniture, boxes and other items, the most cost effective option is our shared container service, sometimes called part load. In this case, we pack your belongings at your home and take them to one of our depots where they will be loaded into a container with other customers belongings heading for the same part of Hong Kong.

This is a cheap option for removals to Hong Kong as the shipping costs are shared proportionally.

Box and Bag Shipping Service

For small moves to Hong Kong we recommend our box and bag shipping service. This is the cheapest way to move your belongings to Hong Kong. We provide you with export quality cartons / boxes and packing materials.

We then collect your packed boxes and transport them to Hong Kong by air or sea freight depending on your preference and budget.

International removals to Hong Kong from UK

Furniture removals UK to Hong Kong

Moving furniture to Hong Kong from the UK needs far more care and attention than for a domestic removal. Each item is carefully packed using export wrapping before being loaded into the shipping container.

You can take all kinds of furniture to Hong Kong including sofas, chairs, tables, cupboards as well as white goods such as washing machines and fridge freezers.

As people drive on the left side of the road, it could be well worth your while taking your car with you to Hong Kong – especially if it’s a new, luxury or classic model.

It is often cost effective to send your car in the same shipping container as your house removal so that everything arrives at the same time.

There are some import requirements you need to be aware of before you ship your car to Hong Kong. We suggest you contact our team to discuss options and the shipping process.

Although Simpsons will take care of all the details they can for you, this convenient checklist will make preparing for the move as simple and worry free as possible.

Moving out: Before the removal men arrive, be clear in what they are contracted to do and what you are expected to do. If in doubt, ask the surveyor or a member of our staff. Ordinarily, both householder and the removal men have fairly defined responsibilities (though a measure of flexibility on both sides is of course desirable)

Children: Children, who are naturally curious and can easily get in the way, may potentially be injured. The younger ones are best left with a neighbour or friend until it is time to leave.

Swings/Climbing frames: Generally dismantling these is one job you will do yourself, but be careful not to lose the bolts. If you wish us to arrange dismantling please discuss this with our surveyor

Garage/Shed: Tie together garden tools, and prepare items to be lifted straight onto the vehicle.

Self assembly furniture: If you have any furniture of the home assembly type particularly if made of chipboard, please note that we recommend dismantling units before the move, as the joints are seldom strong enough to survive even careful handling if the furniture is moved whilst still assembled.

Washing machines: Secure your washing machine drum, and disconnect from water supply and electric.

Books: Books are very heavy, use our book cartons as they are smaller and easier to manage.

China & glass: Wrap each item individually in packing paper or bubble wrap, packing the heavier items first with lighter pieces on top. Remember that plates and dishes are packed vertically and not laid flat.

Moving in: Make sure that you (or some other responsible person) is on hand to admit the removal men. If no-one is there and a reasonable waiting time expires, you could find yourself landed with storage and re-delivery charges. Enquire how long the vehicle will wait should you be inadvertently delayed on the way. It can also save time and confusion if you stand at the entrance and specify the location of each item as it is carried in.

Helping the move along: If you follow the guidelines suggested on this page you will find the removal men themselves responding to your good sense with extra efficiency and relaxed good humour. You can also help the move along by remembering to pack the kettle last. A cup of tea all round is a gesture always much appreciated.

Tipping: There is, of course, no obligation to tip the men, but, as with all personal services, people like to reward extra attention, willing good humour or a job well done. If you feel that a reward has been earned, the driver or packer in charge will distribute any gratuity given amongst the crew.
