Chinese Customs Clearance Information    Declaration Form

All listed rates are quoted in U.S. Dollars and based upon a minimum shipment of 35 cubic ft in volume with a maximum weight of 500 lbs gross weight, unless otherwise specified.  Service includes  ocean shipping pallet and over-sized box or necessary shrink wrapping.  Also includes local (Ann Arbor, Michigan) pickup from first floor door and truck transfer to US port of departure.    If you are not familiar with ocean shipping, please email so that we can explain how ocean vessel shipment can cost effectively accommodate your television, computer, chair and other furniture along with your heaviest text books, clothing and other items.

Please email for rate quote for pickup that is outside of Ann Arbor or Ypsilanti, Michigan.  Prices do not include $25.00 accessorial charge, Chinese port charges or import taxes, delivery from port or customs clearance fees.   Personal effects shipments for returning Chinese citizens and residents can be duty free and most shippers personally clear their shipment at port and transport to their residence home from their local port so as to avoid those charges.  Port fees vary from port to port and can change without notice, but it is our experience that the recipient/owner of goods has significant ability when personally clearing to obtain a preferential rate and can obtain local delivery service in their home city at the lowest prices.

Beiijing, Fuzhou, Guangzhou, Macau, and Shenzhen are quoted at 35 cubic ft volume rate, but have higher minimum volume requirement and corresponding higher weight allowance for each shipment.  We allow our shippers to consolidate their shipment with room-mates and friends so as to achieve the minimum cubic ft volume size or greater discount.  Discounts can be arranged for shipments that are greater than 70 cubic ft in volume.  Please email for details.   Rates listed were effective on July 28, 2009 but may change without notice. 

Shipments can be picked up in Ann Arbor at any time and generally depart the US Port in 14 days, and arrive in the Chinese port within 28 days thereafter.
