Part Load Or Full Load Removals?

At Palmers, we can relocate any size shipment from a single box of clothing up to a 40ft container of household goods and cars.

We provide a full up-front cost for your relocation to Singapore and will guide you through each stage. This will cover all costs associated with the move both in Singapore & Australia allowing you to budget for your move in confidence.

Full Container Load (FCL)

If you know you will be relocating to Singapore with a two-bedroom or larger shipment or perhaps transporting your car or furniture to Singapore, this international shipping solution will suit you. As a general rule of thumb, once a shipment is the equivalent of more than half a container (20 cubic metres), it is best to relocate via an FCL rather than a shared container.

Whilst this might sound strange, the money you might save through combining shipping costs in this case is actually outweighed by Singaporean customs, haulage and clearance fees. The best way to find the most cost-effective solution for your move is to arrange for a Palmers Relocations consultant to provide you with an obligation-free in-home move survey.

Groupage (Shared Consignments)

Shared Consignments refer to a shipment of multiple consignments within the one shipping container bound for Singapore. Our combined shipments (groupage) arrive in Singapore regularly to be cleared by customs and delivered to your home or chosen address shortly afterwards.

Moving your Boat to Singapore?

Moving a boat to Singapore is very similar to moving a car to Singapore. However, there are a few different things to consider that are specific to boats arriving in the country. Upon arrival, boats will be thoroughly checked for any marine species that may need be quarantined in order to prevent their introduction into Singapore’s waters. That’s why it is best to thoroughly clean your boat before relocating to Singapore. However, it is also worth noting that should you wish you sell your boat, even at a later date, high duties will apply.


What Documentation is Required?

When moving to Singapore, the correct documentation is paramount. We at Palmers Relocations will consign you with a single point of contact who will manage and lodge all documentation on your behalf to ensure the process runs smootly.

As standard, this documentation includes:

  • A copy of your passport (photograph and personal information pages)
  • Declaration of Facts Form
  • Original Bill of Lading (completed by Palmers)
  • A copy of your Employment Pass / Green Card (both sides)
  • A Goods and Services Tax Relief form (GST0)
  • A Wine and Liquor Declaration form if you wish to transport alcohol.

How Long Will it Take to Move to Singapore?

The time it takes to get clearance when moving to Singapore is generally 5–7 working days if you are using a full container (Full Container Load = FCL). However, if you are sharing a container (Groupage = GRP), it should take around 7–10 working days.

Shipping your Belongings to Singapore

If all documentation is in order, a duty exemption should be given. Goods should be in your possession and used for more than 3 months whilst in Australia to avoid duties costs. Shipment must be imported into Singapore within 6 months of your first arrival into Singapore otherwise it will be subject to 7% GST plus the Cost Insurance Freight (CIF).

If your shipment arrives more than 6 months after your arrival into Singapore, you may be subject to a 7% Goods and Services Tax (GST) on the Cost Insurance and Freight (CIF) value of your belongings so it is important you plan your shipment to Singapore with this in mind. If you are unsure of anything to do with your removal to Singapore or shipping conditions, simply call Palmers Relocations and one of our friendly staff members will be happy to run you through the motions.
