Yes moving allowance is important because it's cost between 2K and 4-5K EUR depending on how many items you have to ship (this is the industry I'm working in)

Last point for rental cost, I'm based in South China so I don't know the market in Shanghai but here, a nice 1-2bedroom flat is around 7K to 10K RMB (+ deposit + real estate agent commission). There are lots of furnished apartments in China, not like in France.
It's better for you to check this point on the famous French website " Bonjour Chine "

Oh yeah I didn't know that website ! Cool.

They highlight many agencies (,, ...) which offer to assist in the first arrival days, can be also something to consider if the company doesn't any specific help to provide.
