Office Move & Efficiency: The True Story of a Very Special Move

In the fast-paced realm of business, every second counts. In the event of an office move, the significance of a smooth transition can thus not be overstated to ensure no disruptions occur.

Last weekend, we had the pleasure to accompany a very special customer: our parent company ASI Logistics as well as our own teams!

The move was completed within a single day, allowing for ASI Logistics’ and ASI Movers’ teams to resume work seamlessly the following Monday in a brand new environment! How did we do it?

Today, we invite you to delve into the process of this very special move that hits very close to home!

Precision in Motion: Planning for a Seamless Move

In the world of office moves, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. ASI Movers understands this and takes pride in crafting tailor-made solutions that align with your company’s unique needs, priorities, and operations.

Prior to the office move, ASI Movers teams collaborate closely with our customer, in this case, ASI Logistics, to create a comprehensive solution tailored to fit their specific needs and priorities.

A dedicated relocation agent conducts a pre-move consultation in order to gain a deep understanding of the company’s operations, timeline, requirements, and fragile or sensitive items requiring special care.

ASI Movers leaves no stone unturned in understanding your specific requirements, ensuring you enjoy a relocation plan custom-built for your organization.

Packing With Purpose: Enabling Smooth Transition for Team Members

ASI Movers provided packing materials in advance, such as boxes, tape, bubble wrap & filling paper, as well as label stickers, thus allowing our teammates to pack their personal belongings according to their preferences.

Employees thus had several weeks to start sorting through their items and prepare for the move, while ensuring a smooth transition once in the new office.

Labeling for Efficiency

Ever wondered how ASI Movers achieves seamless transition for your home or office move? The answer lies in their secret weapon: labels!

Just like we do for personal effects moves, each carton and item (including furniture, appliances, and electronic devices) received a special sticker indicating its destination in the new office.

These labels minimized disruptions, eliminating the need for employees to look for their belongings as well as the risks of loss, and ensuring a smooth settling-in process.

Thanks to this meticulous labeling, we are able to minimize disruptions and enable swift identification and placement of items in the new office, so that operations can resume instantly. g>

Finding Fluffy: A True Relocation Story

Meet Fluffy, the adorable teddy bear who found its way into our hearts after a very special move.

As its family was getting ready to go to a new home, Fluffy decided to play hide and seek with such talent that everybody, especially the family's younger child, started to wonder if it would reappear before the big departure.


Fluffy may have a talent for disappearing, but at ASI Movers, losing is not an option!

With our dedication and commitment to our clients, we made it our mission to find Fluffy and ensure this family's move happens in the best conditions possible!

Whether it is ensuring that the family's favorite teddy bear is found, safe and sound, or that the moving schedule fits your own, we embrace the uniqueness of each and every request and craft the solution that best fits your needs!

How We Take Care of Your Belongings: a Visual Guide

A relocation is, more often than not, pretty stressful. If you move to another neighborhood, city, or to another country, it means you have to adapt to a new environment and make this new place yours, deal with paperwork and, if you move with your family, that you also need to take care of your loved ones.

As a moving specialist, our aim is to make sure the relocation itself is not one of these concerns.

To give you a better idea of what moving with ASI Movers means, let us introduce you to how we take care of your belongings as well as to our 7-step relocation process.

We thank Christian de Laubadère for granting us the pleasure to admire and move one of his beautiful paintings, which are combined with antique fabrics, printed paper and sculpted coifs.

How to Move to/from China With Your Pet?

You are soon to relocate from/to China and you already sorted out moving your furniture? Awesome! But how about your pet?
What are the Chinese regulations regarding the moving process? Which documents you need to provide?
ASI Movers compiled a guide to help you navigate China’s pet entry-exit requirements.

Is it in your pet’s best interest to relocate with you?

At ASI Movers, we know that your pet is a member of your family. You have a special bound with him/her, and leaving your best friend behind is something hard to consider.
Nevertheless, as for humans, traveling when old or sick is never advised...
As such if your pet is one of these situations, you might consider finding him/her a temporary or a brand new home. Yet, if your best friend is not in one of those conditions requiring extreme decisions. ASI Movers team assures you a stress-free, event free process.

What about the Chinese regulations?

Starting from May 1st, 2019, China applied some changes regarding pet relocation. Animals passing the test inspection and coming from these countries (New Zealand, Australia, Fiji, French Polynesia, Hawaii, Guam, Jamaica, Iceland, The United Kingdom, Ireland, Cyprus, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland, Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, China and Macao) will no longer be subject to quarantine.
However if your pet is not entering from the mentioned countries, you can still avoid quarantine, only and only if, the pet is microchipped, vaccinated for rabies twice, and has a rabies titer test done.
With that being said, if your pet does not respond to these criteria, it will be required to spend 30 days in quarantine, fees are around 300 RMB. Afterwards your pet will be released, if it is determined to be healthy and passed all the tests successfully.

ASI Movers will advise to notify Chinese customs of your pet’s arrival to China.

Relocating to China

Now that you have taken the decision to switch home for the entire family, let’s go more in depth into the process and requirements we will handle with you.

Your pet will transit by Air cargo.
We will take care of the customs clearance at his/her arrival in China and deliver her/him to your residence.

Please note that this solution may require a quarantine of 30 days as suggested above.

Documents you will need to provide:

  • Your passport copy

  • As stated before, your animal will be required to have a microchip and you must provide us with the related documents.

  • Rabies vaccination record (issued more than 30 days and less than a year before travel),the record must be issued by Shen Pu government vet.

ASI Movers going beyond moving for the Van Cleef & Arpels’ Exhibition in Beijing

At ASI Movers, we are dedicated to provide our partners the fittest and most effective service possible.
From April 21st to August 5th 2018, the Today Art Museum in Beijing was hosting the Van Cleef & Arpels exhibition “When Elegance Meets Art”. The famous high-end jewelry brand was displaying chronologically nearly 400 High Jewelry creations and precious objects as to introduce the evolution of Van Cleef and Arpels’ style.

The jewelries have been displayed in tailor-made displays fitting the exhibition's identity.

Transporting such elements meant finding safe and effective solutions specifically customized for them, ASI Movers went beyond moving the elements between Shanghai and Beijing and took charge of providing tailor-made wooden boxes (4 days span), packing, and crating the displays as for them to be safely delivered to their final destination.

Trust, effectiveness and professionalism are keys when it comes to moving fragile and high-end goods, and offering such built-to-suit services has been the occasion for ASI Movers to show what “moving in simplicity” means for us i.e. finding the solutions our partners need, even when it goes beyond traditional moving services. As stated: we see our clients as partners and as such do our best to help them to achieve their project.
