What is the estimated cost to ship?
We charge via actual or volumetric (length x width x height) weight, whichever higher.
A popular and practical box size for relocation is our standard 17kg box (56 x 43 x 35) cm. If the actual weight of the box is under 17kg, the cost to ship 1 such box from Singapore to USA will be approx. $429. This cost includes regular packing and shipping costs, and excludes optional insurance cost, and import charges if any.
