How to Compare International Moving Companies

Not all international moving companies are the same and not all moving companies that claim they can coordinate moving to China actually specialize in this type of overseas relocation. Beware of domestic moving companies that claim to perform international moving in addition to their other services! When handling the delicate transition of moving to China you want a company with the right experience, connections and know-how. As you compare international moving companies make sure you use the most accurate method of comparison. NY International Shipping has found that when looking for a professional international moving company for moving to China it is best to use apples-to-apples comparison to accurately judge how each company stacks up against the others you are considering. Here is how to perform this effective side by side comparison:

1. Gather overseas moving rates from each potential international moving company based on shipping the exact same volume using the same shipping services from and to the same locations.
2. Compare the quotes provided side by side.
3. Determine who is charging the best rates for the overseas moving services you need.

What to Look for in an International Moving Company

Rates are not the only thing worth considering when moving to China using an overseas moving company. You want to make sure you use the company with the right credentials, experience, services and proof of their quality of service. Here is what an experienced international moving company should look like:

What to Expect when Moving to China

As you probably already know, China, the capital of which is Beijing, is by far the largest country in East Asian and is made up of roughly an astonishing 1.3 billion people! If you’re moving to China it is also important to note that China has one of the swiftest growing economies, currently the 2nd largest exporter and 3rd largest importer in the world. The immense industrialization of China, enabling the country to mass produce a wide variety of things, has opened up many job opportunities for residence of the country as well as business men worldwide. China has a socialist republic government and is currently governed by the Communist Party of China. China continues to flourish into a mix of rich ancient culture and modern revolution. If you are moving to China you may wish to brush up on or begin learning Chinese as that is the primary language spoken. Although, if you move to a metropolis such as Hong Kong many businesses and business men and women speak English so you may be able to get by while you become fluent in Chinese. NY International Shipping reminds you that you may need to apply for a visa prior to moving to China. Contact your local Chinese Consulate to learn more about the visa types available as well as the process to apply. Give yourself plenty of time prior to moving to China to have your visa processed as it can sometimes be a time consuming procedure.

Whether you’re moving to China for a corporate relocation or simply wish to enjoy living in another culture, NY International Shipping offers the services and know-how to get you there smoothly.
