Moving from Basel to Singapore

Hi, I am moving from Basel to Singapore and is looking for cheapest option to ship my stuff back. Have approached a few relocation company but the quotation is high as I am only planning to ship clothes, shoes and some personal stuff so no worth paying a few thousand franc for the shipping cost. Would be great if anyone has experience or recommendations to share. Thanks heaps!


Cheers,

Re: Moving from Basel to Singapore

There are local companies that might be kind of expensive: Settelen, Packin pex.

you can also check out Sterling Relocation, they seem quite good.

Ask at the post office. Their parcel rate is surprisingly cheap.

Re: Moving from Basel to Singapore

Have you checked what the extra pre paid hold luggage rate may be?

Differerent airlines have different rates, but one should pay in advance, obviously if you arrive at the airport the Extra kilo rate is usually high.

Re: Moving from Basel to Singapore

Hi all, after some research, I think the best option is to ship using DHL Paket International service across the border in Germany. A box with max weight of 31.5kg (max dimension 120cm x 60cm x 60cm) rate is EUR124.99. It's a good deal . Swiss Post in Switzerland offers the same service at CHF204 for same weight.


A relocation company suggested the option of using the service of Intrapass at Zurich airport. However it is only possible if one has friends to help carry all the extra luggage /boxes. I will not be able to handle the extra boxes other than my check-in luggage(s) from Basel to Zurich


Cheers,
Felicia
