Why We're Different

Careful with the China prides itself on being a different kind of moving company. Founded in 2011 by Laura and Jim Melvin, Careful with the China specializes in packing, unpacking and setting up homes and businesses. It is the quality of our people that makes us stand apart from the rest.
