How To Start A House Moving Business?

Just like any other business, starting a house moving business in Singapore requires a lot of planning and preparation. For the business to be successful you must input a lot of planning and above all follow the set down procedures. For starters, you will need to carry out some research about the house moving business in Singapore to establish what you need and how to go about it. The research will enable you to know what is required is such a business, the challenges involved and what else to expect. During the initial research you must establish the market demographics, the competition, business patterns and risks involved.

After the research is done you will move to the next stage of designing your business plan and sourcing for the start up capital.

How To Start A House Moving Business?

The following are some of the things you will require before starting a moving business in Singapore:

The business start up capital

Like any other business, you must have the start up capital for you to start a house moving business in Singapore. The start up capital will help you in getting the necessary equipment, registration and hiring staff for your new company. The amount you need as the star up capital will depend on how big or small your new company will be. When starting a house moving business in Singapore the start up capital can be obtained from banks and other financial institutions

The needed equipment
House moving is an activity that requires a lot of equipment and it is therefore important to buy vehicles and moving equipment which will be able to carry out the job. You might find it necessary to have moving equipment which can be used when transporting or moving delicate or fragile material or items. Among the items you might need moving trucks and pickups, trailers, wrapping blankets among others.

The business Registration

Before you can establish any business in Singapore you must get a clearance from the authorities. This involves registration of your new business and acquiring the business permits. Remember, you cannot be allowed to run any business in Singapore without the business permit. The business can be obtained from the registrar of companies and you will be required to pay a certain amount of money as the registration fees. The business permits can only be issued after you have met all the set down rules. The government Singapore reserves the right to issue or deny one a business a permit and can even revoke an already issued permit if it deems it necessary.

The staff

After you have secured the business permits, you can then proceed to the next stage of hiring staff to help you start the business. The actual work is not as easy as it may seem and therefore you need to get energetic people who will be willing and ready to get their hands dirty and do the job perfectly well. Your new staff might include drivers, manual labourers, marketers and accountants.

Getting Insurance for your business

House moving can be risky and tricky and this is why you must take an insurance cover for your business. This will protect you from any unforeseen accidents which might occur during the moving process. House moving might involve moving valuable goods from one point to the other, and this can only be safe when your business is fully covered.

Establishing your area of interest or specialization

It is important to decide whether you want to concentrate on domestic or commercial house moving or both. Knowing your area of specification makes it easier for you to market your business and maximize on the profits.

Marketing your business

Like any new business which has entered the market your house moving business will need vigorous marketing. As an investor you will have to dig deep into your pockets and sell your business to your potential clients. You have to go out and look for clients because clients will never realize that you exist unless you let them know. Another important thing to remember is that in Singapore you can register a business either as a sole proprietorship or a partnership.

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.
