The ART OF MOVING with MOVEPREP


Moving Knowledge, Professional Advice, Attention to Detail, Planning and Execution are pre-requisites in every move. Imagine Experiencing More.

You will, will SIR’s MOVEPREP™.


Moving has many facets.


SIR’s professional experience of over 30 years has taught them that the complexities of moving do not only involve the physical aspects. They have learnt that emotional support and well-being are essential to complete a successful relocation.


Success is often measured by the end result, however their belief is that success is about the little milestones that add up, making a move more than a physical relocation.

Very often the milestones are in the details; the listening ear, a thoughtful act, a patient presence, an understanding voice, valuable advice and pleasant surprises.


MOVEPREP™ was developed with these milestones in mind.

Their team has been known to visit customers with a bouquet of their favourite flowers or coffee/tea, they have hunted for special keys for antique cupboards and have even minded children during moves.


SIR offers MOVEPREP™ for both Individual and Corporate Household Goods Moves irrespective of International or Domestic and this service is complimentary to all SIR customers.



"The Art of Moving is about Attention, Patience and Details".


SIR MOVEPREP™ is a move system that was designed by Shyla Mathews, Co-Founder and Managing Director to help customers prepare and plan for their moves. More importantly, it introduces the systematic methodology the company applies to all their moves. According to Shyla, “ The art of moving is about attention, patience and details”.

In essence, it will enable the operations team to ensure that moves are seamless and hassle-free as much as possible.


The relocation industry is labour intensive, and is completely reliant on several factors that can sometimes disrupt the flow and process of a move. Once such current example is Covid-19, which has led to many moves being rescheduled due to various versions of government lockdowns, restrictions in manpower allocation and a realistic fear of exposure to the virus.


As such, the SIR Team is constantly planning to ensure contingencies are in place to rectify unforeseen circumstances/situations.
