Packing labour and packing supplies.

When relocating, it is very important to have your properties packed properly to minimize breakages. The moving company will use its staff to disassemble furniture including wardrobe and beds, and pack all your property safely ready for transportation. Although you may choose to disassemble and pack your property, it is more convenient to use the moving company staff. First, there is added security because any breakage and lose will be compensated. If breakage or any loss occurs due to poor package, they will compensate, unlike when you pack the property yourself. In addition, moving company staff is experienced in such work to carefully disassemble all your furniture, and to safely pack all fragile equipment such as fridge.


When moving, it is very important insure your property. Although your belongings are professionally packed, accident can happen. Relocating is a risk project that any home owner can decide to take. To ensure you are well protected in case of awful happenings, you should get insurance cover. Although home owners tend to take insurance cover as extra expense, it is unavoidable expense that you should be happy to pay for.

Storage fee.

It is very important to include storage fee in your budget. Most moving companies offer up to 30 days free storage period. But you never know what will happen in your new home. To ensure your property is safe even after free storage period as expired, it is very good to book excess days.

Unlike other hidden cost movers in Singapore, they quoted me a $450 NETT for a 1 truck 14 foot full load for my home relocation. They even offered me some moving tips and sent me the boxes for moving preparation. They are very honest and reliable. Highly recommended.
