Transport Services In Singapore: Drive Your Worries Away With This Van Hire Site

This van-hire service does all things transport.

Ever been caught in a situation where you had to book multiple transport services in Singapore on moving day?

What about the stress of not finding a large enough vehicle to immediately transport all those goods and parcels? Booking transport services in Singapore can be a challenge, but GetVan founder and CEO, James Neo, is no stranger to such woes.

For James, it all began with a trip to IKEA, “I needed a big enough goods van to deliver my bulky hauls home that same day,” he recounts. “I couldn’t find one, and resorted to using IKEA’s delivery service.

However, their earliest delivery availability was the following week. I even had to take a day off from work to oversee it!” How did James solve this frustrating problem? Oh, you know, by founding van-hiring service GetVan in 2016 (Psst, this sporty-and-smiley business owner was also recently featured in our latest #SGFaves cover story!).

What Is GetVan?

When we think of transport services in Singapore, the immediate thought is two services: 1) passenger and 2) goods – transport and moving respectively. The caveat? You may need to switch between service providers if you need to use more than one service – which, we know, can be a huge hassle and pain in the butt, especially on big occasions like moving day.

Like James, finding last-minute or immediate delivery service may be a challenge, especially if you require a large vehicle. With GetVan, you can solve all your transport needs with their goods AND passenger services.

Why GetVan Over Other Transport Services in Singapore?

Full Flexibility

If you’ve ever experienced the frustration of having to find last-minute rides or delivery services for large groups or goods, you’ll find that GetVan solves that issue instantly. Schedule a booking in advance or, if you need, book it immediately for same-day service.

Affordable Pricing

The best thing about GetVan? They work very closely with their driver-partners. Founder James completely understands the concerns of demand-induced transport price-hikes and the unstable economy caused by the pandemic. “Keeping prices appropriate is extremely important,” he explains. “It is key to be ultra-sensitive to the earnings of our drivers, and we aim to strike that balance.”

Price Transparency

Don’t worry about hidden charges, GetVan shows you were every single buck you spend is going. In addition to keeping prices affordable, GetVan strives for price transparency. GetVan is transparent with their prices – from extra surcharges that may entail due to ERP or parking, you’ll find that they provide a full cost breakdown when you review your cart.

Bye-bye Price Hikes

When it comes to transport services in Singapore, pricing has always been a sensitive issue. Ever known what it’s like to need to transport a family of six during a festive holiday, only to be mortified by the insane price hikes? What about wanting to move in during New Years only to fall victim to price exploitation due to the peak season?

Well, you don’t have to worry about that with GetVan. The prices are fixed and will only change according to the services you require for your needs. Seems pretty reliable to us!
