    <p>I've just bought a second hand bookcase from around Sanlitun and am looking for ways of transporting it to Shuangjing tonight.

I've found a load of moving companies on the Beijinger but they're more geared towards moving the contents of whole apartments, and they price accordingly. There was one company who could do it for 100RMB but he's out of the city for a few days, so I'm really looking for that price range.&nbsp;</p> <p>Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.&nbsp;</p>

    Daniel, I don't suggest moving company or drivers on individual business.

    Days ago I was moving, less than 2km, contacted over 10 drivers, they either were drunk or asked too much. They demanded 150-280yuan without giving a hand. Thing is I didn't have many stuff.

    In the end, a warm-hearted stranger helped me with his car.

    If you can handle the price, try

    @DD, if I knew anyone who did, would I posting here? :P 

    @Star, Thanks for the website, it's more useful than the ads I was previously looking at. 

    @Lee: Decent suggestion, but finding a budget furniture location close to the apartment I'm picking it up from and then haggling over transport costs in my broken Chinese seems a little too 麻烦
