As part of our packing services, we will then account for custom made boxes to keep your most prized possessions as secure as possible throughout the whole process.

Our relocation specialist will discuss the entire process with you. They will address any questions you may have about your move.

If you require, we are can also advise you on the process of home finding, pet relocation services, school search and more!

Our team of movers is one of the best amongst the moving companies in Singapore. We specially hand-pick each of our staff to ensure that our clients have the best possible experience.

The international moving process can be a nightmare sometimes, especially for clients without prior moving experience.

As your preferred international moving company in Singapore, Classic Moving guarantees an easy, stress-free move.

We do this by assigning each of our clients a move manager. These move managers will be your single point of contact throughout the entire relocation process, guiding you through all the necessary formalities and logistical elements.

That means our customers will always have one of our extremely responsive employees on call to handle your questions, provide regular updates and ensure your items arrive safe and sound.

If there are items that you would like us to dispose of on your behalf, let us know so we can amend your quote and make the necessary arrangements.

It’s important you set aside any personal items that you wish to travel. We wouldn’t want our movers to pack essential items by mistake!

Preparing for Your Move

  • Ideally, the more time you have to plan, the better. Therefore, we suggest scheduling your pre-move survey around 4-8 weeks before your move.
  • Our peak season in Singapore is usually between June and August. If your move falls within these months, contact us as soon as possible to secure your preferred packing date.
  • Surveys typically take 30-60 min depending on the size of your property.

  • While it’s not mandatory (we also offer virtual surveys), in our experience, it is always better to meet you to understand your needs and view your belongings in person.
  • We recommend that you are on the property while the survey is taking place as it gives you the ability to identify what you are taking and what you are leaving behind. Our surveyor will also be able to answer any questions you may have about your move.
  • It would be difficult for us to provide a quotation without knowing the exact volume of goods to be shipped. If you are pushed for time, please send photographs or meet us over a video call.
  • Our relocation company offers corporate relocation as a separate service, available here.

  • It’s a good idea to clear out unwanted items as you approach your move date; this will help our team determine what items you are taking with you.
  • Check to see if you have the original boxes for some of your fragile items. If you don’t, that’s not a problem. We have our crate making facility that makes custom-built boxes.
  • Your quotation will be based on the total volume of your goods and the moving services you select. Our surveyor will determine the best options for you based on your needs.

  • You should book our moving services as soon as you decide your preferred pack date. However, if you are two or three weeks away and running out of time, we will do our best to accommodate your booking on short notice.

  • It is not unusual to not have a precise delivery address when booking your move. However, we can offer secure storage services at both your origin and destination city. So as long as you notify us a few days before your goods arrive at the destination location, we’ll be able to deliver them to your new address.
  • If the volume of your goods alters from the time we survey to your packing date, the cost of your move will change as the price is determined by final volume and/or weight (depending on the mode of transportation).
  • (SG) You’ll need to pay a 25% deposit to secure your booking. The remainder of your invoice will be required by your packing date.
  • (MY) You’ll need to pay a 50% deposit to secure your booking. The remainder of your invoice will be required by your packing date.
  • Your quotation will be valid for 30 days. This, however, excludes the freight cost that is broken down separately in your quote as carriers fees are subject to change which is unfortunately out of our control.
  • Groupage is a transportation method that groups together items dispatched by different moving services into the same container. This type of transportation method is typically the most cost-effective way of transporting smaller volume shipments.
  • Your quotation is based on the volume of your shipment – if this changes, the final cost will change too.

  • Most countries allow the duty-free entry of used household goods if you meet residency requirements. Our team will be able to provide specific information about foreign regulations based on your destination.

Insurance

  • Yes. Our all-risk policy works on a door-to-door basis, meaning that you will be covered from packing to unpacking at your destination address. Your premium will be worked out based on your declared shipment value.
  • Insurance is not mandatory, but we do recommend it! As a professional moving company, our team takes care to ensure your belongings arrive safe and sound in your new home. However, in the unlikely event of damage or loss, insurance is there to safeguard your belongings.
  • No, insurance is a separate cost to the move itself. However, you’ll be provided with all of the documentation required at the same time you receive your quotation. Your insurance premium will be based on the declared value of your possessions.

Moving Day

  • For security reasons, many countries no longer accept shipments packed by the owner. In addition, any damage incurred to items you packed yourself may not be covered by transit insurance. Therefore, we strongly advise that you let our team pack all of your furniture and personal effects.

  • If you are moving locally, our relocation company offers tiered packing services tailored based on your needs and location.

  • We highly recommend that you keep your jewellery in your hand luggage when you move.
  • Each country has its own restrictions, but as a general rule, the following items should not be included in your shipment:
    • Alcohol
    • Firearms and ammunition
    • Food, including herbs and spices
    • Hazardous items (including adhesives, ammonia, bleaches, chlorine, detergents, disinfectants, dyes, flammables, gas cylinders, insecticides, mercury thermometers, methylated spirits, paints, pesticides, photographic chemicals, pressure packs, thinners)
    • Items made from endangered animals
    • Unprocessed furs, skins
    • Plants, dried flowers, bulbs, seeds
    • Pornographic material
    • Soil or sand of any kind
    • Swords, spears, switchblades
  • Yes, we will be able to drop packing materials to you – you’ll need to let us know during your survey.
  • For some countries importing food & alcohol is strictly prohibited.
  • Meanwhile, a detailed inventory list will need to be submitted to customs for countries where alcohol is permitted, and duties will apply. We recommend that you do not include any food in shipments as it can cause delays with customs clearance and additional charges.
  • Ask us for more specific information about your destination country policies.
  • Yes. Please let us know your plans before your packing date so our team of movers in Singapore can make sure essential items, like beds, are packed last.

  • While it’s not mandatory, we do recommend that as you’ll be able to discuss any last-minute details with your crew supervisor.
  • Tropical climates typically come with high humidity. While the moisture does not directly cause mould and mildew, it does speed up the lifecycle.

  • All unwanted packaging will be removed and recycled once it has been delivered to your new home.
  • Our moving services include unpacking your goods and disposing of any debris on delivery day. In addition, our team uses a numbering system that allows us to match boxes with rooms, simplifying the unpacking process at the new location.
  • We offer storage solutions where your belongings can be stored either with us at origin or your destination with a trusted partner company for as long as needed.

  • Your Move Manager will keep in contact with you throughout the move process. When you arrive in your new city, you will be contacted to organise a date for delivery.
  • Many countries require you to be present for your goods to clear customs, but different rules apply. Our company will be able to confirm the regulations for you accordingly.
  • Yes, your surveyor will note everything that needs to be disassembled and reassembled during your move. Trickier items to put back together like cabinets, Ikea furniture and hydraulic beds may require a handyperson – our company will make all of the service staff arrangements for your peace of mind.
