i can't help you there because i'm not sure what your end is. i assumed we were talking about a simple pulley for the purposes of moving non-heavy boxes (as raj mentioned earlier in the thread)... not scissor lifts, cranes or other types of lifting appliances used to move grand pianos into homes.x9200 wrote:I don't think it is a practical approach for the Movers:taxico wrote:replace the word "singaporeans" with the term "commercial Movers," then.x9200 wrote: Following this logic changing flat tire by a private person is illegal or at least not tolerated.
- it is building dependent - needs to be installed, just think about lifting a washing machine this way. It won't be trivial to install it and secure the area. Would it fit the window? It would be useful for limited weight and size only (50kg?)
- it is limited to lower rise buildings (4-5 floors max) - how many of them are around, 5%? Many of them have lifts. For 1-2 storey building a forklift, cherry picker or just a conveyer belt would be a safer and quicker option
- it provides advantage mostly with limited manpower and the Movers seldom are a 2 people company.
i concede i do not have the lengthy list of restrictions that are imposed on every resident in singapore through the town council/condo by-laws, nor do i know the exact statute that was meant to deter/penalize killer litter offenders.
but because i was an ex-MOM Designated Workplace Doctor (all hazards), your above-mentioned scope of work is definitely something i know about, and i agree it would not be practical for Movers to install such lifting gears/appliances for most jobs.
