Am travelling with a huge amount of luggage from UK to Australia via Hong Kong for 1 week
We need a van to transport all of our luggage into Hong Kong a taxi will be too small
Don’t know if there is such a thing. Take a couple of taxis....
Have a look on klook.com. They do offer van transportation from the airport.
Most cargo vans can actually carry up to five passengers(it's a squeeze), but if you have a truly "huge amount of luggage" they have to remove the barrier and fold the back seat to make space for your excess luggage. Then the van can only take two passengers.
Such cargo vans and other vans are only available through advance bookings. GogoVan and LalaMove are two of the largest online platforms.
The fare for a cargo van is approximately the same as a taxi.
How huge is huge amounts?
The vans can be called, but they are not allowed to carry passengers. Although "followers" do ride the vans too.
As I heard, vans are legally allowed to carry passengers accompanying their cargo, but they're not allowed to pick up just passengers. I routinely have vans move stuff around for me, and usually ride with them.
Travel luggage is a form of cargo. So basically you call a van to carry your bags, and as they carry your bags, you can ride the same van.
I'd recommend ordering an uberblack (they are often Toyota Alphards) so a lot more room than a taxi for sure.
There is free wifi at the airport.Edited: 5:49 am, December 13, 2017
>>> I'd recommend ordering an uberblack (they are often Toyota Alphards)
True many uber black are actually Alphard but why take the chance? There's a specific option (Uber 7-seats) to choose on the uber platform anyway
I have the feeling that hiring cargo van is illegal at the airport for carrying passengers with luggage and I think there were promotional campaigns about it a few years ago as taxis business will be affected.
Please be reminded also that Uber is not legal here
