Every single item moving will be packaged in some form, thus if it is not packed in a removal carton it will be export wrapped. Once packed all goods will be numbered with a label sticker and recorded on a removal inventory.

Whereas if you store them in Singapore, you will have to plan around shipping transit and wait for their arrival.

This can reduce unnecessary shipping costs if you change your mind.
