Expert Packing for Moving to China

It's a packing day.

After booking your move, it's time to start packing for the international move to China! It's important to know that, unlike local moves, most countries do not allow for furniture and boxes to be packed by the owner (PBO). If customs reject your PBO container and you don't have enough time, extra charges and dramatic delays may occur.

Fortunately, Hercules Moving Company has years of experience in international packing and moving. Our team of expert packers is well-trained in using the best packing materials and techniques while preparing all your items for international shipping.

We use branded Alligator Wrap instead of moving blankets, and extra sturdy international moving boxes.

International packing requires a higher level of expertise than local packing - we make sure that all items are properly packed in order to ensure their safe delivery during overseas transport. Before sealing each box and furniture piece, our team will create an inventory list which meets all import/export requirements.

That way

Customs Clearance When Moving to China

After the expert packing is done and your items are ready to be loaded and shipped to China, the next step is to navigate the complex regulations and requirements of the customs clearance process.

Every country has its own customs clearance process, so it’s essential to make sure that paperwork is completed correctly in order to ensure that your items are cleared for entry into the destination country.

At Hercules Moving Company, we provide specialized services for handling customs clearance procedures. We make sure all documentation is completed accurately and on-time in order to avoid delays during the customs process.

Our experienced professionals are highly knowledgeable about international moving regulations, and they can easily navigate any complex procedures required for shipping goods overseas.

We also provide personalized support to our clients during the customs clearance process. This includes assistance with completing paperwork, addressing any concerns or questions, and helping clients understand all the necessary steps involved in this process.

With our expertise and personalized support, we can help ensure a smooth transition for our customers when moving internationally, minimizing any delays and ensuring that items arrive on-time without any issues.

Delivery to China

Once your items have cleared customs, it is time to have them delivered to your new home overseas. This process is handled by a trusted agent in the destination country, and they will take care of the entire delivery process.

This service is known as destination service or delivery and is included if you have selected door-to-door service with your international move. While delivery is an optional service, should you choose to manage this process yourself, our movers can still help.

One of the services included in the move day as part of our delivery package is debris removal - a free service that helps you keep your new home clean and tidy after your move.

Our team can also help stage furniture within your new home so that everything looks exactly how you would like it when you arrive.

Our delivery services ensure that you can focus on settling into your new home without worrying about the logistics of moving. We are here to help make sure the entire process goes smoothly and stress-free for you.

What Clients say About Us

Hercules movers moved our [very heavy & expensive] upright piano from Toronto to Stratford. These two brothers exercised thoroughness and care with the move. The brothers were very personable and professional. The piano was well wrapped, stairs were covered in blankets and our wood floor received no new grooves or scratches. Highly recommended. Choose The best from Moving companies Toronto.

3 guys picked up an upright piano from one location and brought it to another. It arrived wrapped very well and they laid down runners so they didn't scratch or mess up my wood floors. They were very careful and put it where I asked without a problem. They were polite and accommodating. I would hire them again and refer them for sure. Igor was easy to deal with and returned my calls and gave me a quote all within a timely fashion.

Hercules moving guys were AMAZING!!!! They were moving a very heavy old piano. They were very polite, courteous, & very conscientious of all they did...ensuring that nothing left a mark anywhere. They even had trouble with opening one of the double doors (a lower lock had jammed) and Vidas took the lower lock apart , repaired it and put it back in place- that is service! No one does things like that anymore! Great guys- I would highly recommend them to anyone! Thanks guys!!!

The movers showed up on time and ready to work, they were very efficient and professional. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Anastasiya Mamayeva

These guys are amazing. They are fast and reliable. They are reasonably priced compared to other big companies. They moved 3br appt on a very short notice with no extra charge. All my furniture arrived in the same condition as before the move. I would definitely recommend them!

Pick up and delivery were done right on time. Very professional. They even cleaned the rear side of the piano for me. Highly recommended.

Very pleasant movers. Worked diligently without a break from 10 to 3. Would definitely recommend them.

My heavy piano was transported within a few hours, taking into account the time for descending it from the second floor and lifting it to the fifth floor using the freight elevator. The price at first seemed to be a bit high, but after calling other piano moving companies in Ottawa, I’ve realized that it was no more expensive than others, even a bit cheaper.

Urban North Inns

Excellent experience with movers of Hercules Moving Company. They moved a baby grand piano for us. The 3 movers were careful, efficient, and respectful of our premises. They also understand the nature of the furniture (piano) they were moving.

The team was very efficient and professional. I would high recommend them for all of your moving needs! :)

Hercules movers was amazing. They moved a piano and freezer from an apartment to my house this past June 2017. They were meticulous with wrapping and moving my piano (and this feedback was from the person whose apartment they were moving it from, who has moved over 10 times in his life and is very particular about his belongings and getting things done right!). They also covered their shoes and laid down runners so as not to dirty or damage the floors. They really took their time and were incredibly professional.I would recommend whole-heartedly!

A++++++++. Hercules Moving is the only company I would ever hire for small moves if I had to move again. The crew was amazingly fast, professional, and very careful with our stuff. They wrapped all the furniture with pads and plastic wrap making it very difficult to scratch. Not only to mention the excellent customer service they provided all along. Hercules is simply the best!

I recently had a packing and moving with Hercules! Excellent customer service, polite and everything on time! Michael and his team did a wonderful job and I am very glad I planned my move with this company! Highly recommend!

Matt Singer

I used Hercules Moving to move a piano from my basement to a purchaser. They were very professional, packaged the piano carefully, put down mats on flooring and removed it very efficiently. I'd recommend these guys for any moving needs for sure!!

Thank you so much for the professional and efficient work. I was surprised to see how much work went into protecting the vanity from damage. The 2 man team made the job so easy, maneuvering with ease up the curved staircase and around the tight corner into the washroom. Your professionalism, efficiency and care was much appreciated.
