Frequently Asked Questions

Q1. Can I receive my parcels upon arrival at destination?

With regards to customs clearance, customer have to submit unaccompanied baggage declaration form once they arrived at destination country. The clearance process will take about 2 weeks for sea freight and 3 to 5 days for air freight.  You can submit the documents even in the event of temporary arrival, however, please contact us in advanced.

※Customs clearance will be separate for sea and air freight using  the unaccompanied baggage declaration form.

Due to the above reason, it is not possible to process customs clearance at the same time.


Q2. Is it possible to send items from a warehouse and a home located in Japan?

It is possible to arrange for import in Singapore before returning to Japan.


Q3. Is it possible to move pets?

We do not have pet moving service but we do provide documents related to pet relocation.


Q4. Is it possible to dispose garbage?

We provide disposal services for bulky items and electrical appliances. However, we do not provide any disposal service for personal items and garbage.


Q5. Do you provide removal services on weekends and public holidays?

We operate on Saturday mornings. However, we do not operate on Saturday noon, Sunday and public holidays. Some condominiums do not permit moving on Saturdays.


Q6. Can I still move if the destination address is not confirmed?

Sea freight can be used even though the destination address is not confirmed but will be confirmed upon arrival at destination. If there is a need to store your belongings in the warehouse for a long time, please inform us in advance.


Q7. What are the common problems during removal?

A common problem is misplacing passport or contract documents in sea freight. Another common problem is that landlord may claim that you took their item along with your baggage. Hence it is recommended that you segregate the items properly to ensure a smooth transition.
