Relocation businesses offer companies and individuals moving to China a full suite of services including pre-departure orientation, neighbourhood orientation, home-finding services, lease negotiation and utility hook-ups, as well as school selection. While removals companies offer a more limited range of services that tend to focus only on transporting goods, relocation firms are a one-stop solution that covers everything.

Moving to China may seem daunting: dealing with visas, adjusting to new laws, culture shock, an unfamiliar language, not to mention finding a place to call home. Whatever expat's needs, relocation firms can give personalised and flexible assistance.

Here are some relocation companies that can help when moving to China.
