My husband and I are moving to Singapore from Texas in exactly 3 weeks and we are using Crown Relocation. They have offices worldwide and have really excellent moving/relocation services. We had 3 different companies come and survey our place and Crown was definitely the most professional and easiest to work with. The main benefit they had is that they have offices all over the world, so you're working with Crown on the US side and Crown on the other side. With the other 2 companies, it was one company in Singapore dealing with another company in Houston who sent out a surveyor from a different company here in Austin -- a whole mess of different contacts. With Crown, you just deal with Crown (the Crown guy mentioned this when he came to survey, he was our first surveyor, and I was like -- okay, so what? But it really is a big deal, now that we've been talking with all 3 of these companies via e-mail and getting quotes from them. When we ask one of the other companies a question, they have to ask their US partner the question, who has to talk to the surveyor again, and then the answer has to go back the other way -- it really is a huge headache sometimes. With Crown, it's just one person we talk to. And they were actually the lowest priced company of the 3 -- we thought sure, they seem the most professional, but you probably pay for that too... but you don't really. Their prices were actually a bit better than the others.). I'd definitely recommend them. They also have all sorts of moving in services (we haven't actually gotten there yet so I can't vouch for how good they are, but they have them), and the people who work there can help you with visas and stuff that you need (although we had people at my husbands new office who helped us handle this).
