How to move just one piece of furniture?

Post by pel » Wed, 24 Sep 2008 2:05 pm

We moved from New York where "A man with a van" or similar small business could be found easily if you wanted to pick up something large and move it. For example, if you bought a piece of furniture off Craigslist and needed to get just that piece home. (This is, in fact, what we'd like to do here.)

I know there are moving companies that move whole households within Singapore. But, are there any companies that work by the hour with a truck, etc? I'd hate to pay more for the moving than the furniture!

Unfortunately I've just joined and the PM function doesn't work. I'm glad to hear there may be a man with a truck here tough! Let me know how else I can get this info from you. And, thanks.

Just look in the classified section of the daily newspapers, always a bunch of them on offer.

Can't recommend anybody personally, as I normally just rent a ute and grab a BiL and off we go.

i wasn't sure i should post his number - but it's a small business so i'm sure he wouldn't mind the referral. he was recommended by someone from this site originally and i've used him several times and have had friends use him. he owns a couple of trucks and has a handful of guys working for him - i've been charged $40-50 for pickup & delivery. nigel 92709182
