The cost of moving homes in Singapore can vary greatly depending on a number of factors, including the size of your home, the number of belongings you have, the distance between your old and new homes, the time of year you are moving, and the services you require from the moving company.
On average, you can expect to pay around S$500 to move the contents of an average-sized 3-room HDB flat, including furniture and packaging. However, you can expect to pay more if you have a larger home or a lot of belongings.
Factors affecting the cost of moving homes
Like everything else, the cost of moving is dependent on several factors. Here is a breakdown of some of the factors that can affect the cost of your move:
1. Size of your home
The larger your home, the more belongings you will have to move, and the more expensive the move will be.
2. Number of belongings
If you have a lot of belongings, you may need to hire a larger moving truck and/or more movers. This will increase the cost of your move.
3. Services required
If you require the moving company to pack and unpack your belongings, disassemble and reassemble furniture, or store your belongings for a period of time, you will need to pay additional fees.
To get the most accurate estimate of the cost of your move, it is best to contact a few moving companies and get quotes. Most moving companies will offer a free consultation, so you can discuss your needs and get an estimate of the cost.
