Trade Winds (8 yrs ago)
Hello Expat Mover,


In 1991, I was a laid - off banker looking for a cheap local moving company with good English language capabilities. As I couldn't find one, I STARTED MY OWN called "Trade Winds," with specific attention to the "Self - Pay Expat."


Since the day I opened 20 years ago, I've been helping people like you with small and large local moves around HK. We provide "Van & Man," "Truck & Driver" or Full Packing & Moving services according to your needs. We also do storage and fully international relocations as needed.


Or you can just call me for boxes & packing materials / general moving questions. 2803-2561 or click here for quick & honest moving assistance.

Hi All


I don't usually do this but I must give Trade Winds a promo.


We used their service 2 weeks ago and were very very happy, friendly helpful guys (very efficient) and reasonable prices. Having frequently used local vans with limited cantonese TW took the headache out of moving for us! Highly recommend them.

As a veteran "movee" who has used 3 different movers for 4 moves, I must wholeheartedly agree with Team NZ.


I used Trade Winds for my family's recent move from Pok Fu Lam to Discovery Bay. Unlike movers I've used in the past, the TW staff all spoke excellent English and were a jolly bunch. They went about the work efficiently and communicated with you when they came across possible problems, like existing defects in furniture. My move was supervised by the owner and proprietor, Steve, who kept me updated on the progress every hour or so.


Pricing-wise, TW delivered a clear estimate that caps the maximum bill and gave me ways to make the move cheaper. I chose to do my own packing, and was able to shave $1500 off the bill. I could've supplied my own packing supplies, too, except I don't know where to get boxes in Hong Kong. In addition, TW lays out all the possible hidden fees in their estimate -- like the DB parking/tunnel charges -- so there were no surprises. This was such a welcome change compared to my previous move, where the mover had the galls to ask me for $2000 extra in fees because they completed the work 5 hours late!!


And this was the most important thing: TW completed the move in an orderly, timely fashion. Discovery Bay has a policy of having all moving companies out by 6 pm, so TW finished the job by 5:30 pm, with time to spare. They didn't rush near the end and throw boxes into rooms, and they didn't hurry through the reassembly of furniture. Even though I didn't use TW for packing, their policy is to pack a day ahead of time to allow ample time for the move on the day of.


Without a doubt, Trade Winds is the best local mover I've ever used, and I would definitely call on these guys again.

Trade-Winds recently moved me from Happy Valley to Sheung Wan. They provided absolutely one of the best moving experiences I have ever had. Steve, the owner, was friendly and accommodating when coordinating the logistics of the move. Steve even sent me boxes, tape and plenty of bubble wrap as I had opted to pack up everything myself. Once the movers arrived at the scheduled move time, everything was made extremely effortless for me as Steve and his movers were very pleasant, professional, experienced, organized and efficient. They packed and unpacked all of my belongings thoroughly; disassembled all the large furniture with expertise and efficiency; loaded and unloaded all of my belongings carefully and helped me set up the furniture as I desired in my new home. As an added bonus, they recycle all of their materials and are extremely environment conscious, which I found to be very appealing and rare for moving companies. In addition, Steve and the movers all speak English, so expats will not encounter any communication problems.



I highly recommend Trade Winds' moving service as THE best!!!!

Hi!

I moved my stuff with Trade Winds 2 weeks ago: Steve and his crew were efficient and nice and everything went smoothly.

I checked the prices of 4 other movers and there was few difference. Trade wings price is average but doesn't overcharge for stairs and other little extra as others do (and you don't really know if they'll add something as a suprise).

Storage fees are the lowest and overall I think it was a better deal with a no-surprise price tag.

In addition, Steve is a nice guy, gives better service and speaks English better than I do :) (as it's not my mothertongue).

He's storing my furniture for at least 2 months so I'll tell you later if everything will go as smoothly for the second part of the job!

Dear all,


I moved flat in June 2010 with Trade Winds in HK and the service was great at a good price. I recommend them. I found Steve a very nice guy efficient and problem solving. He personally came and supervised everything. I was very happy.

Recently used Tradewinds and was very happy with their service. I had been let down by an earlier request for a van from some other man and had to move quickly. Steve was flexible and prices fair and transparent.

LOL.. sorry to take a jab, you do realize that you named your company after an adjective that is... opposite of smooth....

rockey1 (6 yrs ago)

we just used Tradewinds for our move and are very happy with their service. They are on time, did a good job packing, moving and unpacking, very helpful even when the big cabinet is difficult to dissemble. Price is also very competitive (I got quotes from several companies)

snehe (6 yrs ago)

rockey1 (6 yrs ago)

koala226 (6 yrs ago)
I've gotta be honest here.Good news first. They charged us very little for a lot of work and a lot of manpower. Steve is a nice guy and the crew work very hard. But if you are a very specific person on how you want things done, or, you have very high standards, I suggest you hire Crown or Santa Fe, the big guys. They are professional by ten folds.

butternut10 (5 yrs ago)
I just moved to my new apartment on Caine road over the weekend with Trade Winds. I got to say that Steve is one of the nicest person you will meet. Steve and his team of 2 guys made the move a breeze. They are friendly and efficient. His rate is very fair, all the crew speaks English and they do a great job, i would use them again and highly recommend them.

dashley (5 yrs ago)
Just experienced Haarsh. They were brutal and they lie! Avoid this company! You'll thank me later.

Used Trade Winds last week and was very impressed with Steve and his team. He came with 3 guys, supervised, but also rolled up his sleeves to move all my stuff. The quote he gave me over the phone was EXACTLY what he charged and made this move easy, BREEZY. Highly recommend Steve Dressler and Trade Winds. If you need gweilo movers (and I do-- I do not speak a lick of Chinese), this is the guy.

shk8 (5 yrs ago)
whatever you do, don't bother with tradewinds!!! They wouldn't even bother to give me a quote. They say "no job is too small" but that is complete rubbish. I have a good size job with a 2500 sq ft house move and because I live on the south side of HK Island I was "too far away" Steve kept referring to the "fabulous" Maria who would get back to me "immediately" and was "so surprised" when I still did not have a response over a week later. I sent him a text asking him again for a quote, and about a week later had to follow up with Maria, who told me that none of them were interested in coming out to give me a quote and they were completely uninterested in my business!!! Makes you wonder what happens when they actually do take a job...

loninhk (5 yrs ago)
I used Trade Winds in May to move. I thought Steve was great, very easy to deal with and helped get the job done. The only thing I would recommend is to get a detailed list of charges before the move. I was told about the cost of moving supplies and their hourly rates. However an additional truck was required, which was an additional fee, and the movers also worked after 8 pm, which was an additional fee, neither fee was mentioned until payment was owed. I sent several requests for a receipt, and still haven't received one, nor am I getting a response to any prior inquires. The movers did a good job, just need to check all the costs before moving, and make sure you have all you need before the job is done, otherwise you may not get a response.

gihund (5 yrs ago)
Hi, could I get Tradewind contact number? Planning a move, but slightly complicated logistics.. Need to pick up from two places, swap a mattress along the eay then deliver to one location. Hearing the good reviews, I'd like to have a chat with that fella and see if he can help.

Can someone help me out finding a mover urgently as we plan to move coming Sunday from Mid level to Causeway bay. Thanx.

JJChan (5 yrs ago)
shk8 I had a similar experience as you with the very same company - I was not very impressed with them. I used Allied Pickfords in the end and on the whole thought they were very good. Price wise very competitive and the actual move itself was very well co-ordinated. They moved 3,000 sq ft in one day. It was a big job but as we wanted it done in one day they made sure there were tons of staff - on the whole a very good job.

Brilliant service: I've been in HK for 6 weeks. A friend referred Simon- he and his team exceeded my expectations. I needed 2 large expensive leather sofas moved from Mid-Levels to Gold Coast ( 26th floor ). His price was HALF that of Tradewinds whom many people have recommended on this forum. Simon's two man team wrapped both sofas in protective blankets etc and managed to take them down the owner's stairwell ( 5 floors ) . Upon arrival at my apartment, they attached the legs, helped me find the best spot for the L shape and even took away a gaudy cabinet for me, free of charge. I'm delighted to recommend him. Ph 69089063. Sry, I have no idea of his surname?! Suzanne
