    Moving to Shenzhen - Any decent moving companies?

    Hi,

    Has anyone moved from HK to Shenzhen and used a decent moving/shipping company they can recommend?

    Some were quoting over $50k to move items less than 15km as the crow flies. I appreciate that the China licence plates are hard to get with the criteria, but surely there is someone who doesn't have to ship by land, sea and air for such a short trip.

    The cheapest I've found takes 21 days. Can anyone help with a decent company who is quick and reasonably priced that they can recommend?

    Thanks

    We paid ~40k to move back to HK from Shenzhen. Took up a 24 ton truck and including packing, unpacking and storing.
    Depending on the amount of stuff 50k doesn't seem too much.

    We used Santa Fe. No complaints. No idea of price since it was a corporate move. Had we had to pay out-of-pocket, we'd have left most of the dishes and simply replaced with Ikea.
