    Moving to USA

    hi

    I will move to USA by the end of October! Can any one suggest a
    moving company? Should we buy the furniture in USA or
    in HK?

    try Crown relocation.

    Which state are u moving to? If you move to CA or states where there are many chinese, it maybe cheaper just to buy the furnitures in the US since you can find good deal at the local Vietnamese furniture stores.

    Who is paying for the shipping?

    Agree with above comments on depends who is paying for the shipping and which state you are moving into. If you already have customized furniture here, you will find it virtually impossible for it to be duplicated in the US at a reasonable price as labor is quite expensive there.

    Another thing to consider is weather, since it is humid in HK, if for example you move to CA where it is dry, Rosewood furniture has a good possibility of cracking, so shipping said furniture would be a waste.

    Yes, if you have to have a specific type of furniture in the US, and it isn't a mass production item, it will be expensive.

    Thanks to all of you. I will move to Sunnyvale in California at the beginning of November and all the shipping cost is paid myself.

    After reading your comments, i decide to buy the furniture in USA.
    By the way, can anyone of you advice where to buy second hand furniture in CA?

    Many Thanks!!

    For 2nd hand furnitures you might have better luck at consignment shops or some non for profit thrift stores. You might also be able to pick up some stuff from garage/estate sales & ads in pennysaver magazines. Keep in mind that you might not get very high caliber stuff unless you're really lucky.
