Container Shipping Sydney to Singapore

Postby bec010 » Tue, 11 Jul 2017 12:54 pm

Hi All - how long did it take from when you packed up in Sydney, to your stuff arriving at your home in Singapore?

I seem to be getting general guidelines of between 3-6 weeks which is quite a large range and hoping others can share their experiences.

It is hard to get a closer number for a variety of reasons.

  1. If you are not buying the entire container you may have to wait until it is filled.
  2. Your container may be subject to inspection by customs on either end of the trip, from cursory to the "big dig".
  3. Your container may have to wait for the correct ship to haul it to Singapore.

Mine came from Perth and took close to 4 weeks for door to door. Hope this help.

Container took about 1.5 months door to door. It's stays at the docks for a while to be processed. Its not all about travel time.

That's why when I relocated there was also a airship allowance too to get your important stuff in SG sooner like 5 days.
