2017-07-03 : Customs Duty Exemption on used HHGS to France

The two main requirements for entering goods duty-free into France are as follows:

1. The shipper has to have lived outside of France for at least 12 months prior to arrival of his goods

2. France must be the primary residence

The easiest way to satisfy French authorities is for the shipper to obtain a change of residence certificate from the French consulate in the country of origin before leaving the country. Alternatively, if the shipper is moving for professional purposes, his employer can provide a document that needs to state period the shipper has lived outside of France and confirm that France will become the primary residence - this letter should be in French.

2014-12-15 : rules for sending pet dogs to USA

CIM would like to draw your attention to the regulations regarding the import of puppies into USA: On July 10, 2014, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published Issuance and Enforcement Guidance for Dog Confinement Agreements in the Federal Register. The guidance pertains to the issuance of confinement agreements for dogs (CDC form 75.37) imported into the United States that are not adequately immunized against rabies. The guidance became effective on August 10, 2014. You can find more information on CDC’s website at: CDC advises people who want to get a dog outside of the United States to make arrangements to delay importation until the dog is fully immunized against rabies. Puppies can be vaccinated as early as 3 months of age and must be vaccinated at least 30 days before arrival in the United States. Therefore, dogs must be at least 4 months of age to be imported to the United States, unless they are being imported from a rabies-free country. In most cases, CDC will not allow the importation of puppies that are not fully immunized against rabies. Failure to comply may result in the CDC refusing entry and the dog may have to be sent back to the dog’s country of origin at the customers expense.

2013 Chinese New Year holiday NOTICE:


2012-08-10 : Outing to Baiyangdian from Aug 10th to Aug 12th

Summer time is always the peak season for the movers. After continuously concentrating ourselves on the never ending like jobs, we finally grabbed a flashing moment to snatch a little leisure under the pressure of heavy workload.
On Aug 10th, CIM staffs and the families started out to Baiyangdian, a waterside village in northern China, which is about 120km from Beijing, with wild ducks, blooming lotus, fishing boats, farmer houses scattered on the water and, of course, the farmer food waiting for us ahead.

We visited the Grand Lotus Garden, which is built up on the vast lake water, full of wild ducks and the various lotuses. The zigzag bridges made of wood and stones over the water led us deep into the garden. The huge statue of Guanyin Buddha, the hall in shape of a turtle, various water game facilities, everybody speeded up paces in order not to miss any wonderful sight and seeing, because the garden is really big.

The engine boat is an indispensable traffic vehicle in the local people’s life in Baiyangdian nowadays. Wherever you go, you have no other choice but to take a boat. This is of course the only vehicle which brought us into and out of Baiyangdian. Boating in Baiyangdian brought us special experience as the boat went the vast wild water densely covered by the lotus and reed.

Living in farmer house is another exciting experience. Farmer food is organic. Who said this? Handmade pan cake and buns, fresh salted duck eggs, stewed wild ducks, and more... DAMNED GOOD! Are you slavering? But be careful, while you are fressing and guzzling, mosquitos are doing the same on you.
