We’re proud to always provide a reliable and efficient service, helping to make your move to Hong Kong a success.
Hong Kong Removals
Britannia Ryansmove can move all sorts of items to Hong Kong from the UK. We’ll start by carrying out an extensive pre-move survey so we can determine exactly what will be required for your move. We can help further by providing you with packing materials or professionally packing your items to keep them safe in transit. We discuss with you exactly what you need in terms of a timeframe and schedule, to make sure your belongings can reach Hong Kong when you need them to.

We have extensive experience in overseas commercial moves, and we have the specialist equipment required to safely move your equipment.

Shipping to Hong Kong
Britannia Ryansmove can give you different options to transport your belongings to Hong Kong and we can help you find the best method for your schedule and budget.
Container shipping via sea freight is our most common method of transporting belongings to Hong Kong. It can take around four weeks for belongings to travel from the UK to Hong Kong, but we’ll work with you to find a timetable that works for your schedule. Sea freight is usually the cheapest option for transporting your personal items.
Air freight is more expensive than sea freight, but it is also much quicker. It can be a good option if you’re working to a tight schedule or need to move items before a specific deadline. However, there will usually be restrictions on weights, sizes, and products, so it may not always be possible to use air freight. Britannia Ryansmove will work with you to find the best solution to move your belongings in the timeframe that you need.

Hong Kong Customs and Imports
Britannia Ryansmove will be able to assist you with the customs and paperwork required to move your belongings to Hong Kong. You do not have to be personally present when your items arrive in Hong Kong, but they will all be inspected by customs officers. Once everything has passed inspection, you will be able to collect your belongings. There are no customs to be paid for moving your personal belongings but Hong Kong does have some strict restrictions on what can be imported.
Hong Kong has an extensive list of what is and isn’t allowed to be imported through customs. Included in this list are specific foods, as well as herbal medication and other medicines. Sometimes it is possible to obtain a special permit if you wish to take in items that are restricted under these categories.
Hong Kong has strict restrictions on tobacco. Only 19 cigarettes or 1 cigar, or 25g of tobacco can be imported by an adult. If you want to bring in alcohol, you’ll find a little more leniency; you can bring in any amount of alcohol under 30% strength.
