Why International Movers Differ from Local Movers

Whether you’re moving to another country, a different district or across the street, you’ll still require a decent amount of planning to pull off your move in Singapore without a hitch. An international move will of course require additional steps, which you will need to research beforehand. Unless you lead a completely minimalist lifestyle and only have the barest of essentials in your possession, you will likely want to enlist the services of a professional local or international mover in Singapore. You might be wondering about the differences between these two services providers and how each of them can help you. 

Local Mover

If you are relocating to a new neighbourhood in Singapore, you will need to enlist the help of a local mover. You will be able to find a large array of companies that offer local moving services or you might be tempted to rent a van and do it on your own. When it comes to a local move, you can spend more time shopping around for a company that offers what you need. 

You can opt for a full-service move that includes packing, loading, transport, unloading, unpacking and even reassembling household furniture and equipment. If you are not time-poor or you’d like to cut costs, you can pack and unpack your belongings yourself and only pay for transport. Make sure you understand what services you are paying for to avoid any misunderstandings. 

Specialised Movers

If you have antiques or heavy items (such as pianos or pool tables), you will need to hire local or international movers in Singapore that can deal with these objects. These items are not only large, they are also fragile and valuable. You will need specialised movers, which have the necessary equipment and training to handle your valuable belongings with care. 

International Movers

While an international move is very exciting, you’re likely to be feeling apprehensive as well. There are plenty of opportunities ahead but before you can enjoy them, you need to find international movers in Singapore that can handle your needs. Unlike domestic movers, companies that manage international relocations always tend to be well-known. The team at Allied Pickfords is very proud of the fact the brand has gained a reputation for providing excellent international moving services in Singapore and around the world. 

An international mover needs to understand customs and international regulations, import restrictions, quantity types of shipments and many other intricate matters. Their vast experience is reflected in their level of professionalism, since they have to operate on such a large scale. International movers in Singapore aim to make the transition much easier for you. There will be a few steps to get you from A to B, yet you are more likely to have everything under control thanks to the guidance of your moving advisor.
