Whichever walk of life we come from, it’s only human for us to make mistakes. But no matter how big or small they are, we all deserve a second chance to right our wrongs. This is where The Helping Hand, a non-profit organisation that offers painting and furniture removal services has come through.

The birthchild of the Ministry of Social and Family Development and Singapore Prison Services, The Helping Hand helps ex-offenders rehabilitate back into society through a range of home services, including furniture moving, painting & cleaning and disposal services. We’ve got the lowdown on what this volunteer welfare organisation has to offer.

The folks over at The Helping Hand have over 20 years of experience moving furniture across both residential and commercial spaces. This also means that they’re fully prepared to meet all your moving needs with covered fleets of 14-footer lorries and 5-man teams to get your barang from point A to B smoothly.

Movers from The Helping Hand can do everything for you from start to finish. By that, we mean that on top of transporting your furniture, they’re also able to help pack and unpack your furniture, as well as dispose of bulky and worn-out pieces you no longer want.

Be it old condominiums or new HDB BTO projects, they are well-versed in completing moves across all types of housing neighbourhoods in Singapore. This applies to commercial projects too, where they have experience moving in and out of hotels, offices and schools. 

To ensure that no hiccups occur on the day of the move, they’ll also conduct a site survey to check out how best to move into your new place. For example, if you have a grand piano in a flat with no elevators, they’ll scout out an optimal route for them to get it from point A to B before the actual moving day itself.

Aside from moving furniture, The Helping Hand also has a team that has been trained to paint and clean homes. This way, you can just get them to do your painting, moving, and cleaning for you, saving you the hassle of having to deal with multiple vendors.

They also have a woodworking workshop that churns out teak wood furniture in vintage and contemporary styles. The selection includes furniture sets for your living room, dining area, bedroom and the rest of your home.
