    Best removal companies from UK to HKG?

    What are the best companies to organise a removal from the UK to Hong Kong?

    Preferably not a company that will send a lone guy to handle the delivery of 11 cubic meters up to a fourth-floor flat!

    This was our experience the last time we moved to London, and we had to carry pretty much everything upstairs ourselves. Not surprisingly, we are not too keen to repeat the experience.

    We used Allied Pickford and they were very organized and helpful. From moving us out of the UK to when we arrived in Hong Kong, everything was handled quickly and smoothly.

    Here is there UK website: http://gb.allied.com/
    Hope this helps.

    We used Doree Bonner International for our move from the UK to HK - Baltrans were the firm here who delivered all of our stuff. They were extremely efficient. We live on the 47th floor and they had 2 guys loading the lift and then 2 guys emptying the lift - they were done in 2 hours! Hope that helps - good luck with the move!

    thanks for tips

    thanks for recommending Allied Pickford and Doree Bonner.

    Quick question: what was the service like in the UK, did they send enough people to pack quickly?
    Would hope for a removal company that would send enough people to pack and take stuff down four flights of stairs so we don't have to help out, and will also keep an eye on the truck so someone doesn't steal boxes (welcome to the joys of living in central London!)

    Doree Bonner send someone out to assess the size of container you will need by the amount of furniture you have - they also take in to account how many people they will need. We had 2 guys who took just over a day to pack and load everything and we didn't lift a finger - they did it all. With regards to keeping an eye on the truck...pass! A question for when you ring the removal companies. I am sure they have overcome that many a time.
