What You Need to Know About Moving to Europe from Singapore

After assessing the budget and timeline for your Europe relocation services, we will recommend the most suitable mode of transport. Our services in Singapore currently offer the following relocation service options throughout Europe:

Fastest mode of shipping but also the one that costs the most. Generally, an airfreight shipment is picked up, crated, and put on an aircraft within 48 hours of packing. Transit time is less than a day, but customs and quarantine clearances at destination may take up to 4 days.


Groupage shipping from Singapore is by far the cheapest way to ship smaller shipments (below half a 20ft Container) to Europe. Shipments are packed and held in our warehouse until we fill up a container bound for Europe. Typically the waiting time in Singapore can range from 4-8 weeks. This is for shipments that are not urgent in nature. Some of our customers use this option to ship the bulk of their goods, and then book a very small Air freight shipment to ensure their essentials get there on time.


An LCL service is usually quoted when you do not have enough volume to fill a reasonable amount of space in a 20ft Container, and you do not have the time to wait for us to fill up a groupage container. After packing is done in Singapore, your cargo will be sent to our freight forwarder, who has a weekly sailing schedule for moving to Germany or moving to the Netherlands. LCL Shipping is economical for small shipments that are too urgent to be held for groupage shipments, but are not time sensitive enough to be sent via Air Freight. This, by our assessment, is the 2nd most expensive way to ship freight from Singapore


FCL Shipments are the most economical mode once you have more than half a 20ft container worth of goods. This is because we book the whole container for your goods, there are no freight forwarders involved in the process. There is no additional handling to be done – i.e. The container will be trucked to and loaded at your residence at Origin. It will then be sealed and shipped out. The next time you see it, it will be at your residence at your destination (if access permits). This is unlike LCL shipping, where containers need to get consolidated at origin and deconsolidated at destination, and often involves more transport.
