Moving to Singapore
If you’re moving to Singapore, there’s no reason why you can’t take your possessions with you. Britannia Ryans is a specialist in Far East removals, with an expert team based in the UK and trusted, reliable partners in Singapore itself to help when your items reach your destination. We have team members in the UK who speak Mandarin, ensuring seamless communication between the two locations.
We can work with you to create a bespoke removals plan, working to your required timeframe and budget. We’ll ensure your possessions are transported safely and efficiently, so you can settle into your new home in Singapore.
We’re proud to have the Chinese embassy as one of our repeat clients, demonstrating our expertise in East Asia removals. With Britannia Ryans, you’ll know your possessions are in the best possible care.
We can help to transport all manner of goods to Singapore from the UK. We’ll first conduct a pre-move survey, either in-person or via video. This will let us see exactly what is required for your move to Singapore, allowing us to properly prepare for a hassle-free move. We can also discuss your moving dates and potential timeframes for moving your belonging to Singapore.
If you don’t want to take all your items with you, we can further help by providing long-term storage in our state-of-the-art storage facility. We’ll keep your items safe and sound until you return.
Commercial Moves to Singapore
Britannia Ryans is well established to help with your commercial and business moves to Singapore. We have the equipment and knowledge to transport your items safely and securely, so you can set up in your new location in Singapore. We can tailor your removals plan to your specific requirements, and we’ll always go the extra mile to ensure things are managed efficiently. We can also provide business and document storage, archiving your paperwork in specialised boxes and ensuring it’s barcoded and ordered to your filing system.
Shipping to Singapore
We have a choice for transport to get your items to Singapore, and we can work with you to find the best solution based on your timeframe and budget.
Container shipping by sea freight is our standard mode of transportation. It is usually the most cost-effective method, although it can take weeks to transport your possessions in this way. It can be ideal for those that know about their move well in advance, allowing us to begin transporting your items before your moving date. We can often also provide affordable rates by combining shipments into one container with other movers.
Air freight is the quickest method for transporting your items to Singapore, but it comes with a higher price tag. It can be an effective solution if you have few possessions to move, or if you have a smaller timeframe to work within.
Additional moving services
We know that when you’re undertaking an international move, you’ll likely need more than just removals services. This is why we can offer you the following additional services, to help make your move stress-free:
- Storage facilities
- Full packing service
- Packing materials
- Custom crating
- Export wrapping
- Express delivery
- Disposal of unwanted items
Singapore Customs and Imports
Britannia Ryans can provide advice and guidance for the necessary customs forms and paperwork needed for your specific shipment to Singapore. In general, importing personal effects into Singapore will incur a Goods and Services Tax (GST). You will need to obtain a permit to import your items and pay the GST.
You will qualify for GST relief and be able to avoid the payment if you are a Singapore citizen returning to Singapore, or a foreign citizen transferring your residence. The goods will need to be imported within the first six months that you arrive in Singapore, and you will need to be present at customs for them to clear.
Liquor, tobacco, automobiles, private aircraft, boats and commercial goods are not eligible for GST relief, even if you qualify under the other conditions. The Singapore Customs website has a list of prohibited and controlled goods for import, so you can check before you travel.
