Q: Use taxis or small truck to move in Beijing?

I'm going to be moving apartments soon in Beijing, and I don't know if I should use a few taxis or call a moving company for a small truck. I don't have much stuff - no furniture, just lots and lots of clothes and luggage (there's two of us), all the kitchen stuff, the big water bottle heater thing, winter clothes, etc etc etc. I think by taxi it would take us between 3-5 trips, but I don't know how much it is for a moving company to bring a small truck just for an afternoon (2-3 hours).

At least in my city there are small closed bed trucks and vans for rent with drivers, and they are not expensive at all.  But be aware, all the driver does will be to drive the truck, he will not move a finger towards loading it or unloading it.  He will sit and smoke, and watch you work.

There are also places were you see people sitting on sidewalks.  You can hire one or two to do the lifting for you at both ends, locally they charge between 50 to 80 Rmb per 8 hour day.

Or you could contact a moving company to do it all for you, make sure you do get estimates first.

 

A good friend moved between buildings in same complex a year ago.  Took him about 6 hours, and it cost him 200 yuan.  100 for the truck, 100 for two labors.  and all he did was issue instructions and warnings.

A moving company quoted him 350 Rmb for the move.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
