One of the most recommended Hong Kong moving companies, Setia Movers offers efficient moving with quality service and good prices. The company handles both local and international moves and, if you need to put your things in storage while moving, they can find you a great warehouse solution.
The fact that this removal company has many repeat customers is a testament to their level of service. These local movers will get the job done, and you won’t pay through the nose for it, either.

Another one of the most popular Hong Kong moving companies, Yun Kee has a great rep and is super efficient and responsive. Their professional team will do a quick site visit and provide an on-the-spot quote so you can get a very quick estimate of your moving costs. And, you can choose to save money by packing and unpacking yourself (though they can do this for you at extra cost). Once you confirm your move with them, they’ll very quickly drop off packing supplies so you can get started.
The ultimate in full-scale budget moves, Hippos calculates the cost of your move by putting a price on every item. Check the price list on their site to get a rough estimate of how much your move will cost – they have separate prices for everything from beds and wardrobes to pianos and washing machines. They’ll do a pre-move inspection for a very accurate quote, give you all the necessary packing materials, and handle everything with care. They also offer handyman services in case you need to sort out a few things at your old or new digs.
Another precise mover, IKA’s online system will get you to list out everything you’re going to be moving (and exactly how much of each item) so that they can give you their lowest and most accurate quote. Great for home and office removals. They definitely skew more towards locals though, so if your Cantonese isn’t up to scratch, you may want to keep looking.
Few Hong Kong moving companies have been around since the 60s, but Yan Yan is one of them. The award-winning local removalists will get you into your new place quick-smart, and with free packing supplies and furniture assembly. Get the ball rolling by filling out the form on their website.

Perhaps one of the most expat-friendly Hong Kong moving companies, Trade Winds offers quick, professional moves with English-speaking staff. You’ll need to WhatsApp photos or get them in for a site visit in order to get a quote, but once you do that, everything should proceed pretty smoothly. They get booked up fast though, so you’ll want to try and schedule your move with them early; they can also be slow to respond because they’re a small team.

Planning to DIY the move in order to keep your costs as low as possible? This is the way to go. Simply download the app, book a van or truck that suits your needs, and you’re ready to go. These are basically the Uber of moving companies. Once you choose your transport, you can choose to add-on services like choosing a particular route or getting the driver to help you carry things (all at extra cost, natch).
