Shipping abroad can be complex with each country’s customs requirements and local regulations being different. The precise cost for shipping or air freight will depend on the exact size (and sometimes the weight) of your consignment.

We recommend air freight if you require your effects promptly. If you wish to ship most or all of your household effect we recommend FCL (Full Container Load) for your removals to Singapore.

For smaller shipments, we recommend our part load (groupage) service as the most practical and cost effective option. The exact price will depend on the cubic capacity, container size, and service required. Part loads will be returned to our warehouse for consolidation and loading.
