Finding The Best Singapore Moving Company

One proven way to getting started on your search for movers is to first scan for customer reviews. 

Shortlist 3 to 4 moving companies based on the google reviews of the moving company, then proceed with enquiring with them. That way, you would have already filtered out the moving companies who provide bad service.

Remember, price is not the only factor. The service level and how the movers handle your items are equally, if not, more important than just price.

Overall Conclusion On Moving Companies

Moving is a difficult job. Judging from the comments from the google reviews of many of the moving companies, it is inevitable that there is the risk of items do get damaged during moves.

No moving company is perfect. The older companies run like a small business, so you won't get the 5 star professional service that you are hoping to get. The larger moving companies can give better service, but are typically more expensive.

If you have expensive / fragile items that can be hand carried, do move them yourself. Otherwise, if the expensive / fragile items are too large to be managed yourself, it is worth paying the moving company for extra protective wrapping.

 

Singapore Movers Have A Tough Job - Lets be Nice

It is not easy to ensure that all moves go smoothly as planned. This is one job that requires a lot of physical strength. A lot of movers who have been moving for years have sustained physical injuries. Sometimes, Singapore movers may appear to communicate roughly, but thats just how the people in the industry communicate. Tough job, challenging take home pay. Let's be nice to them!

All the best in you upcoming move!
