Advice on Shipping Companies

Post by katieewer » Mon, 02 Jan 2006 8:29 pm

Hi there

My boyfriend and I will be relocating to Singapore in February and wonder if anyone has had experience of shipping their goods from the UK to Singapore. Any advice? What companies would you recommend? What sort of cost would we be looking at?

Also any advice on estate agents when we get there? We plan to stay in a Serviced Apartments for 4 weeks or so until we find something.

Thanks
Katie

Hi Katie,

We are moving from the UK as well, me in two weeks then my wife and son a few weeks later. We are using a company called Excess International Movers. so far they have been the cheapest, had good reports from other people using them to Singapore and they do groupage consignments, meaning that you do not have to book a complete container for around £3K!!, you can share someone else's.

We are shipping our sofa, chairs, bedroom furniture and personal items for around a third of a full crate price, door to door.

You can visit them at http://www.international-movers.com maybe if you mention me I might get a discount :lol:

Good luck with the move and maybe catch up with you on the flip side :)

Cheers
