Shipping companies from Singapore to UK

Postby BigSis » Sun, 26 Feb 2012 10:39 pm

The time has come for us to up-sticks and move back - after 10 years here it's quite sad really - we'll miss Singapore.

There are quite a lot of threads about shipping companies but not many recently.

Has anyone got any recommendations?

We used Allied Pickfords coming over here - they were OK, but the company are nit-picking about cost so is there another one which is OK but a bit cheaper?

We're not the kind of people who'll be shipping precious stuff - no ming vases or valuable paintings - we just need a reliable company.

Ideally we'd like them to drop off boxes about a month beforehand and we'll do some packing ourselves - do shipping companies do that? (Pickfords just packed and loaded in one day, we didn't get boxes in advance).


Any info gratefully received :)
