And if you have any old items that are still usable but you do not use it or find it necessary for your new home, it is better to donate those items in a charity. This will be a grateful gesture and the needy ones will get them. There is no point of throwing the stuffs out if they are usable and if can be used by someone who will be pleased to get it.

For moving your house in Singapore, your top most priority should be packing. It is important to start the preparation as early as possible to avoid rush, chaos and mess up. In the last minute packing, many things can go wrong such as missing items, not packing carefully and also packing some unnecessary items. So, it is better to prepare a list before you start to pack.
