Advice moving goods from UK to Singapore

Post by dashbad » Thu, 06 Nov 2008 5:19 pm

Hi,

I am looking for advice on moving a few goods to Singapore. I will not be doing a large house move but only need to transport a few boxes (perhaps 3-4) and an office chair.

Can anyone recommend a reliable company to help with this? I'm hoping that the small volume and weight will make air freight a possibility, does anyone have any advice as to how much this might cost?

Any help or recommendations would be gratefully received.

thanks

what's the estimated weight of your cargo? Cos i understand that for air freight, they charge per kg.

have a look at www.sevenseasworldwide.com and do an online quote for what you want to ship.

With this small amount of volume I would send it via DHL, that would probably be cheapest (airfreight). I don't know exactly what the cost will be, it depends on the weight and size of all boxes together. Measure your boxes length x height x width. They always calculate in cubic metres or cubic feet.

Let me know if you need more info.

Leave the office chair behind. I brought mine over from UK, and it just keeps going mouldy.

4 Boxes airfreight, depends on weight but 89£ sterling for first 10kg I believe for normal postal freight. Courier a lot more expensive. There is a size limitation, so forget the chair, it is probably not suitable for the tropics anyway!
