Cadogan Tate has a lot of experience with moving people and their belongings to the East, including the various regions and cities of China. We’ve gone through the complex customs procedure many times and are best placed to advise you on what you can and can’t take with you.

After you request a no-obligation quote from us, we will make an initial assessment of your possessions, and can produce a thorough and detailed moving plan. There are some items you may not be able to take with you to China, so we can help you arrange storage in one of our high-tech, secure facilities.

Planning is key when it comes to any international relocation, and this is especially true when moving to China. You need to apply for an import permit before you can arrange a shipment to the country, so you may already be living in China before your goods arrive. In many cases, you will need to be present in the country to file the application. We can store your shipment at our storage depot ready to ship as soon as the permit is granted.

You will be assigned your own Move Coordinator who will talk you through everything you need to know about moving to China. Why shoulder the burden yourself, when you can use a professional removals company to do the hard work for you?

China Regional Information

Moving from the UK to China can mean quite a lifestyle adjustment. We have been helping professionals and their families relocate to China for years and have built up a detailed knowledge of the process.

Cadogan Tate is one of only 500 members of FIDI (Fédération Internationale des Déménageurs Internationaux) and holds the FIDI Accredited International Moving Standard (FAIM). In order to maintain our high standards, we only work with moving companies in China that are also members of FIDI.

We will help you with the application of your import permit into all the major cities and regions. In some cases, you may have to be present at the customs office during the application.

We have also used our experience in all areas of Chinese relocation to put together a series of useful guides that will help make your international move that little bit easier.
