How do I move my car to China?
Moving motor vehicles and motor bikes to China is possible provided Customs criteria are met.
This service is usually depot to depot, meaning the motor vehicle will be collected by you from our partners depot in China mfollowing customs clearance.
Customs may require evidence that the owner of the vehicle has lived abroad for 12 months or longer, so a copy of your passport with date stamp showing arrival in China, or copy of lease or rental agreement on in China would be sufficient.
Can I move my boat to China?
Moving a boat to China has similar requirements to moving a car to China when it comes to registration requirements and process.
Customs and Quarantine in China will have a special interest in the boat due to its exposure to marine life, however as Australia has a fairly clean marine environment, your boat should pass customs and quarantine without any problem.
How long will my move to China take?
Clearance of your move into China takes approximately 5 to 7 working days for an FCL (Full Container Load e.g. not a shared container), and 7 to 10 working days for a GRP (Groupage or shared container load) once the shipping container has been unloaded from the vessel.
What insurance should I have when moving to China?
OSS offers a full range of moving insurance options depending on your needs.
Although your shipment to China will be packed to export standards (designed to withstand the the longest journey), the small cost of insurance gives you complete peace of mind with regard to the exposure and rigours inherent in moving from one side of the world to the other.
