Shipping Container Costs to China

The vibrant city of Tianjin has plenty to offer both visitors and expats alike, from quaint, European inspired neighbourhoods to fascinating historical and architectural landmarks. Some of the city’s unique landmarks include the Monastery of Deep Compassion, the Tianjin Eye and the Porcelain House. Expats should be aware that the city’s residents speak the Tianjin dialect of Mandarin, making it advisable to seek out language classes in the area. Seafood is one of the main ingredients in the local cuisine and you can sample some of Tianjin’s famous delicacies, such as Shibajie Mahua and Goubuli Baozi. Several universities and educational institutions are based in the city, including the Tianjin Medical University, Tianjin Foreign Studies University and one of China’s most prestigious schools – Nankai University. If you want some time away from the hustle and bustle, you can take a relaxing stroll through the People’s Park, Shuishang Park or the beautiful Tianjin Water Park. The city has a monsoon climate, which brings cold, snowy winters and hot, rainy summers. Sandstorms can occur on occasion in the spring, lasting up to a few days at a time. Moving to the Chinese city of Tianjin is sure to be smooth sailing, as long as you make the necessary preparations, such as shipping your household goods. Two shipping container sizes are available to choose from, depending on how much you intend to ship.

Alternatively, a 20-foot container can hold items from inside a 3-bedroom house, with some extra space for a bicycle or two.
