Forwarding services for furniture (from US/Australia)

Post by clairengxy » Wed, 14 Jul 2021 9:46 pm

Does anyone have recommendations for reliable forwarding services that can ship bulky item (e.g. sofa/dining set) from the US/Australia to Singapore? Ideally looking for a service that is reasonably priced, easy to use and ensures that items are packed delivered safely.

A friend has recommended vPost as they have an insurance option for higher ticket items. Has anyone here used them before and have any good/bad feedback? Please share!

I don't think ppl here use vpost to send furniture items. Only mails and packages.

You might want to check for global freight companies like Tiger, Allied Pickfords for your furniture items to be shipped.

Thanks for the recommendations! Shall do some research on them. In the meantime i managed to try out vPost to forward some of my smaller shopping items over from the US. Will update if they are any good!
