The cost for 1.6M3 of 250kg of items came to a total cost of 4,500RMB for door to port service. Even though the contract states that it is from China's door to Brisbane, Australia's port; the company now claims that what it really meant was that it is from your Chinese door to the Chinese port. The allege that the contract is now invalid -as it's passed the Chinese port - and they have passed on our details to a Chinese-owned local company called:
Lefeng Logistics ( Protected content ) - who have billed us for an additional 450AUD to unload our stuff off the boat.
If we don't pay them the money, they will sell our goods. This is extortion scam, and I wish to warn all you lovely expats in Beijing. This has been a public service announcement from Matthew Parker.
