Thread: What would you ship out of China if you have 1 40 ft container?

  1. #1

    Default What would you ship out of China if you have 1 40 ft container?

    Hi...

    would like some opinions here. I will be relocating from China in a few months time and will be allowed 1 container to brign back my stuff to Singapore. Just wondering what would some of the things that would be recommended to buy and bring back to Singapore....any suggestions?

    Previously I read that some people actually buy cheap furniture here and move it back. Unfortunately I don't a new apartment in Singapore, else I would have bought a whole set of complete furniture here! I got 1 mountain bike which I managed to get on the cheap though. Any other suggestions of items which are really cheap here but expensive back in Singapore?
