Shipping Gas Grill from the US to Singapore?

Post by aquariuswinnie » Tue, 05 Oct 2010 6:10 am

Hubby and I will be moving to Singapore from the US next month, we both love to grill so much that we want to move our 4-burner gas grill to Singapore. Any suggestions and advice on any good shipping company to ship our grill? Any idea on how much we can expect to pay? Thanks in advance!

Do not waste your time in packing that Barbie Grill of yours from the US. I have no clue how much it will cost BUT I think getting one here is far more cheaper and new compare to shipping one from US. Don't you think ?

I just google and link you to one website

Unless you are sending a container, you will pay well north of a thousand dollars to ship it. Even if you break it down so that its shipping volume is less, expect to pay more than a thousand dollars.

DHL, UPS, and FedEx ship on a combination of weight and volume. But you'll find that if you contact a shipper about sending it as ocean going freight it will cost about the same.

BBQ's cost out the wazzo here in Singapore, and part of that is shipping costs to get them here.
