i've heard that past few batches of Singaporean military folks (that spend a year in Monterrey) have used https://www.agsmovers.com
I was using Transparent International.
I got this quote from a online shipping quote/review website where
people can put in their information and shippers will contact you.
This company is basically a broker, they will get a local mover(can't
recall the guys helping out in San Jose) and a overseas mover(Tiger
mobility in Singapore)
Overall experience was pleasant, but worried as the website looks a
bit dodgy. lol
Some other companies i was comparing with.
Lots of packing you need to do, can be done before they come and pick it up.
2. SevenSeas Worldwide International MoveCubes
Only can do loading within a few hours, unless you know exactly how
much you need it's going to be challenging.
Depending on how much you are shipping, if just a few items, maybe
upakweship and sevens seas are good enough.
I have also heard that relocation can be used to offset the taxable
amount for paying taxes in US, something to be reminded of.
Vanpac Group Asia https://www.prudentialmovers.com helped us w our move from Sg a year ago. Prompt, personal, and reliable. Super professional. Even gave us makan recommendations in the Bay area before we moved.
My recent round trip from US ->SG was https://www.bluehorizonshipping.com , SG->US was http://www.collinsmovers.com.sg/ . Collins was the company that blue horizon contracted with to handle the SG side logistics. For the return trip we contacted Collins and their quote was much cheaper, basically Blue Horizon’s USD price but in SGD 😁
Collins contracted with https://www.dynamicla.com to handle the US side logistics delivery to our door
You can try vpost and see if they offer a cheaper rate for you. I have used them in the past and they worked fine, but you need to follow their instructions for shipping: https://vpost.com/sg/
Local Movers in Bay Area
We have used Aaron moving multiple times and our experience have been good. https://aaronsmoving.com
Hi Michelle and Mary-Anne and anyone else looking to relocate back to Singapore.
These are my personal contacts. I work with them for my own logistics and they're both incredible at getting the job done and more importantly, done well. You can let them know that I recommended them to you (they both sent me an email to confirm they can support you and anyone in need to relocate out of the Bay Area or anywhere for that matter)
Please see their information below (both of them also connect with each other)

Hope it helps! 💛
I just used Seven Seas, they sent boxes over (with free tape and marker and (very little) bubble wrap) and had someone come to pick up the boxes. Totalled about 800USD for 4 huge-luggage-sized boxes and will take about 10weeks to ship. Would recommend calling rather than online, since the person on the other side was really helpful about general tips and advice. Will only receive my stuff in Feb tho so can’t say much about the care they put towards shipping
I think the major known ones are Asian Tigers and Allied Pickford - very good
but they’re more costly And others ive heard of are Santa Fe and Collins
