Moving to Singapore

When you move to Singapore, it is worth considering taking your belongings with you. To do so, you can choose among several transport options. You can choose sea freight with direct transport, meaning that your goods will be transported in their own moving container or you can opt for groupage transport where your goods are in a shared container. There is also the option of sending a small consignment via air freight, which is particularly useful if you need your goods at short notice.

The costs of moving to Singapore

The biggest advantage of moving by sea container to Singapore is the cost. A huge number of containers go on one boat, which means that the price is naturally lower than when moving by air freight. When using groupage service you share a sea container with others, which makes it even more advantageous. Transpack can give you a tailor-made offer with all the costs.

How long will my possessions be on their way to Singapore?

How long your belongings are on their way to Singapore depends on the kind of transport you choose. When you choose air freight, you can expect your belongings in your new home within 2 to 3 weeks. When you choose to move your belongings by private sea container, it will take about 8 to 10 weeks, with groupage it can take a bit longer with about 10 to 12 weeks on average.
