Moving & Storage


Since our first day as a destination service provider, Scout Relocation has formed strong partnerships with some of China’s leading moving and storage companies who are specialized in diverse moving and storage expertise (Household good, Vehicle…) in order to improve the overall support to our assignee’s moving and storage needs.

Scout Relocation with the help of its partners is now able to provide you with a one stop solution for all your relocation moving and storage needs.


Moving your household objects (Furniture, Clothing…) to China should take between 4 to 8 weeks depending on the origin. Start receiving quotes a minimum of 4 weeks before your actual move in order to select the right moving company who will take care of your move to China (Beijing, Shanghai….). Our partners and Scout Relocation have been working together for many years and can bring you a very comprehensive package for your move in China (Beijing, Shanghai….).

  • Pre-Move Survey: During this stage of your move, our team will try to identify your needs and make you aware of some of the most important shipping and customs regulations for your move to China (Beijing, Shanghai….)
  • The Quotation: Price often is a large part of an assignee’s decision on which moving company to choose; however, this is also when you will be able to compare the size and weight of your shipment, the destination of the shipment, the approximate transit time as well as whom you are dealing with.
  • Packing & Loading: This stage of the move is the time that all moving companies have to show their professionalism and bring the best of themselves, use the most adapted packaging methods and assure quality control to their assignees.
  • Customs Clearance: To import or export any shipment to China (Beijing, Shanghai…) regulations have to be followed (residence permit required). For your move, our team will provide you with all the necessary paperwork.
  • Forwarding: By land, sea or air, your move to China will have to be forwarded to the most appropriate forwarders. Our team experience is here to select those professional forwarders for you and therefore ensure you with a safe move.
  • Delivery: Together with our moving relocation coordinator and your HR department, our team will arrange the necessary customs clearance and other formalities to ensure the delivery of your shipment as fast as possible.
  • Insurance: Our moving team partner will provide you with complete transit insurance coverage to secure your move to or from China (Beijing, Shanghai…).



No matter where in the world you need to import or export your car to conserve your mobility, Scout Relocation and its trusted moving partner can assist you in your Vehicle relocation (Car, Motorbike, etc.…) following international shipping and Chinese regulations. Door to door delivery with comprehensive vehicle inspection (pick-up and delivery inspection). Insurance options are also available.


When an assignee and their family arrive in China it can be still unclear whether or not their property will have the available space for their furniture and personal belonging. Scout Relocation and its storage partners provide flexible and effective storage.

Your belongings will be stored in our partner’s storage facilities until your final departure or anytime you want them. Scout Relocation is always by your side to keep an eye on and to protect your goods and furniture during your storage lease.

Thanks for your contact! Helped us save a lot of time finding a reliable storage supplier and the service was quick and affordable.
