Shipping Details....

Post by CRB » Fri, 10 Jul 2009 12:35 pm

my husband and I have just moved to Singapore on our own accord. we are needing to ship our things from the US to here. Any advise on a company that we can use for a good price? how long does it take to freight belongings to Singapore from the States?

Many thanks.

We have used Crown, KC Dat and Santa Fe. That would be a good place to start. KC Dat tends to be pricey, but they are fantastic, at least from Singapore - US. They can 'crate' anything, no matter how strange the shape ~ it's kind of a shame to tear the crate apart at the other end. All 3 mentioned are top-notch.

If you are partially filling a 20ft or 40ft container, I'd search this forum for some advice on how to fill any empty space. Singapore is deceptively western, but there are lots items I think you'll be thankful you packed with a little prior planning.

Hope this helps.
