Moving to Singapore

Singapore is a popular destination for Cadogan Tate customers and we organise regular shipments from the UK and Europe. Whilst we understand that every overseas move can be a stressful time, Cadogan Tate International Movers aim to make it as simple and stress free as possible.

How much time should you allow for shipping to Singapore?

You should allow five to seven weeks for full load containers and six to eight weeks for shared load groupage containers. Your Move Co-ordinator will advise you on the transit time required for shipping to Singapore and any Customs clearance following the survey and acceptance of our quotation.

Customs clearance and import duties in Singapore are limited, except for alcohol and motor vehicles on which duties will need to be paid. We recommend that you do not include alcohol in shipments to Singapore, as these are likely to delay customs clearance.

Taking a car or motor vehicle

Importing a car into Singapore is possible however both duty and sales tax will be due on the vehicle. We recommend reading the Singapore Government website for more information on importing cars into Singapore. Your Surveyor can give you prices and further information on importing your car should you wish to.

Can you take pets?

Transporting pets is a very specialist area and each requirement is unique and therefore has to be dealt with individually. You can take common household pets such as dogs and cats to Singapore, however there are various restrictions that you need to be aware of. You may also need written permission from your landlord prior to importing the pet. We recommend that you research these prior to arranging the pets' travel - further information can be found here. You can also speak to your Surveyor who will be able to provide you with further information.

Your next steps

If you would like a quotation one of our Surveyors will arrange a visit to talk you through everything and answer any questions you may have. They will assess your belongings and put together an accurate quotation for moving to Singapore. Once you are happy we will draw up a plan of exactly what is going to happen, organise a convenient moving date and assign you a Move Co-ordinator who will be there to support you at every stage of your move.
