Movers are knights in shining armours, you never really know how much stuff you have until you move houses! Bookmark these moving companies in Hong Kong for when you need them.
Anyone who has ever moved houses knows that the amount of stuff can be overwhelming, especially kids’ rooms! But moving can be an opportunity to declutter, pare down the wardrobe and organise the keepsake folder full of children’s drawings, birthday cards and photos. For local moves, you will want to organise a deep clean of the new place, have pest control done and ensure essential services like water, electricity and internet are installed. For an international move, it’s best to keep an inventory of your items so you can arrange appropriate insurance and ensure that all boxes arrive at the destination. Read on for the pick of local movers and international moving companies in Hong Kong.

Advise the moving company of any restrictions with building or elevator access and parking facilities.
