Cheaper to ship or buy?

Moving to Singapore? Ask our regular expats in Singapore questions on relocation and their experience here. Ask about banking, employment pass, insurance, visa, work permit, citizenship or immigration issues.

Buy the electrical appliances. For one thing, it's 220 V in Singapore. Using transformers isn't worth it.

One big thing to think about, mattress sizes.

Do not bring your own mattresses/bed frames unless you are very very sure you can fit them into your new place here. Better come here first, have a feel, and then buy your mattresses/bed frames here instead.

Sometimes a matter of few inch difference between European size and Japanese size will cause a huge headache (and a very expensive shipping cost plus storage cost afterwards when you realise you can't fit it in)

Be prepared to pay a huge sum here for a decent mattress, though. Or rent a furnished flat.
