Shipping Container Costs to Singapore, Singapore

The exciting, multicultural city of Singapore is a very popular destination for both expats and tourists alike. Singapore is one of the world’s most important cities for finance, commerce and transport, as well as being considered one of the most influential cities in Asia. The city features a tropical rainforest climate, with high humidity, significant rainfall and uniformed warm-hot temperatures year round. Cars are somewhat restricted in the city, due to the large population and small area size, so most people in Singapore use alternative transportation, such as buses, taxis and trains. Singapore is a very culturally diverse city, so expats are sure to settle in and feel very welcome in no time. Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay is the local performing arts centre made up a concert hall, theatre, two recital studios and a library dedicated to performing arts. If you want to experience Singapore’s natural beauty, visit the Singapore Botanic Gardens or make friends with the pygmy hippos at the highly rated Singapore Zoo. The city is known for its outstanding restaurant scene - with countless types of cuisine to enjoy, from Italian and American to Seafood and Indian, you are sure to never go hungry in Singapore! You will most certainly settle into the diverse city of Singapore in no time, but before you make the move, you must arrange the transportation of your household goods. If you wish to transport the contents of a 4 or 5-bedroom house, or a 3-bedroom house along with a family car, you should use a 40-foot container. However, if you wish to transport the contents of a 3-bedroom house only, you should choose a 20-foot container instead.
