2nd Hand furniture of Expats

Post by *NiC* » Wed, 05 Oct 2011 10:21 pm

Hi,

we are looking forward to move to Singapore in about a months time. We don't knot yet if we take furniture or not. I dont really like the idea of buying another set of furniture. So, I was wondering if there is a online 2nd hand furniture marked as there are so many Expats coming and going all the time?

Thanks for advice
Nic

from what i have seen, a lot of expats come to 'fully furnished' apartments, and rarely buy much, unless they are here for the long haul.

And those who do buy normally run a garage sale and disappear .. nobody is going to 'display' and sell as you are asking ..

oh, most second hand stuff end up at Salvation army, and that's a good place to start .. :D :D and they do sell them, and lot of stuff are really as good as new ..

You can check out Expat Auctions www.expatauctions.com.sg/

They also have a warehouse that you can visit and make offers on the furniture prior to auction directly with the owner.

Beside buying, you can consider leasing furniture as well.

I'd second expatauctions.com. I outfitted my whole house from there. :) GREAT bargains. They have just undergone a management/owner hand-over. But they've been amazing in the past and no reaosn to expect it to change.
