So Mr Zhang thought of the domestic home of the old furniture shipping to Canada, so that you can save a budget to buy new furniture, old furniture also do not have to idle in the country, two birds with one stone.


Mr Zhang found Hippo International Moving through a friend's recommendation, and entrusted Hippo to pack and ship all the commonly used domestic furniture items to Canada. Mr Zhang chose Hippo's door-to-door moving service, so the packing, customs clearance, delivery and unpacking of the furniture were all done by Hippo, but due to the special nature of the Canadian customs, the customs clearance had to be done by Mr Zhang himself.


On the day of packing, Xipu's workers came to Mr Zhang's house with enough packing materials to carry out multi-layer fine packaging for the furniture, cotton white paper anti-scratch + middle layer of bubble wrap/pearl cotton anti-shock + outer layer of cardboard reinforcement. Removable large pieces of furniture will also be disassembled and then packaged to try to save volume, the whole process is very careful. The following is the same day pickup packing site:
