Share cost of freight from Singapore to Australia anyone?

Post by ctst » Thu, 12 Mar 2009 11:44 am

Hi, I have a couple of pieces of furniture I'd like to move to south east Queensland (Brisbane/Sunshine Coast) from Singapore, and was wondering if there's anyone out there who going to be moving too that I can share the freight costs with.

It's just a big bookshelf and possibly a single bed (both can be flat packed). Let me know and we can work the costs out! Thanks!!!

CTST - also try Move Management Australia - http://www.movemanagement.com.au/ - They moved us up here and I know the MD very well. Ask them about "backloading" onto a container they might be shipping back. Backloading is precisely what you're asking for, basically helping fill up another container. No harm checking with other companies either!

HTH, Mr. P

Hi! Thanks so much for the tip. Didn't realise that they could do backloading with overseas moves. Will check with Move Management. Let me know if you hear of any Singapore freightforwarders that do this. Thanks again!
