Last-minute surprises when it comes to the big move are the last thing you want, but with IKA you’ll be given a precise quotation using their online system, which requires you to list out all the items and quantities you’re looking to move so they come prepared.

The DIY Approach
If you’re one of Hong Kong’s rare minimalists, then taking moving matters into your own hands can be a more cost-efficient choice. Boxes can be sourced from the Post Office, and apps like GogoVan and Lalamove provide transportation for minimal costs from across Hong Kong. They can be booked in advance or on the day, and if you need additional help moving your items, this can be negotiated directly with the driver.
