Storage

Housing prices in Hong Kong are renowned for being some of the highest in the world. Often when people relocate to Hong Kong they are required to downsize and as such are left with a large amount of unneeded furniture. This is why we at Allied Pickfords offer storage solutions to all our customers during relocation. We have storage facilities both in Australia and in Hong Kong, so wherever it is that you require storage, we can provide for you.

Vehicle Transport

If you cannot bear to leave your beloved car behind in Australia, then Allied Pickfords can organise transport for your vehicle.

Hong Kong has strict rules and regulations when it comes to importing cars. There are strict rules regarding emissions and noise pollution when it comes to owning a vehicle, so it is important to check that your car complies with their national standards.

Once you have imported your car you must be able to provide a letter which confirms your vehicles compliance as well as to present it for examination at the To Kwa Wan Vehicle Examination Centre.
