Hi,

Headed down to JB today and did some shopping ard JB area.

Visited a few furniture shops, notably

(1) Rustica

(2) Lorenzo

(3) Miva

(4) Raywillis and some smaller neighbourhood like shops...

Anyone has any experience with furnitures hunting in Malaysia to share?

Thinking of getting those furnitures at Miva cos saw some really nice ones..

Anyone bought from there before? Care to share?

Hi very interesting post

Are the pictures taken from Miva?

Is this the location and their website?

http://miva.com.my/

http://miva.com.my/location_map.html

The price below includes transport and miscellaneous costs?

sorry so many questions cos i was quoted by Evov at 1.6 k for the same table

thanks

Hi u refering to the dining table? I was quoted at 1,999RM, transport at 250 RM + 7% GST.

But if you buy above a certain amount, then transport its free...

Yup u are rite.. thats the one I went, but their website not very informative though..

Hmm the quality is pretty alright.. btw that table I saw at Raywallis.. ard the same area as Miva

Miva is not bad.. heard they have new stock coming in June..

They have Red Apple there too..

Can see see lorenzo or Rustica if you like their style also..

Maybe if you want, we can pool and see if can save on transport cost?

But I haven decide wut to get yet though.

Woo looks very nice, the dining table. :thumbs up: Saw that shop before I think but never go in at all.

Like glass tables with steel/chrome legs somemore. More classy. Its about 1000+ sgd if converted into sg currency right? Does it come together with the dining chairs or just on its own? 'Cos furniture shops will have their pricing differently for dining table & chairs separately. So it will work out to be slightly more if it does not include the price for the chairs as well.

The price does include the chair.. but I think its not chrome legs maybe just some metal leg or something..

Finishing not as exquisite but not bad for the price itself..

That would be a good buy if includes the chairs too. But I notice that you mention that you were quoted the price + transport + 7% GST right? But where is the tax levy??

You have to pay for the tax levy, confirm chop. 'Cause got to bring into sg ma. Unless the furniture shop absorbing the tax levy cost?

Not too sure abt the tax levy, but check with Miva and levy abt 100RM.

But normally if above a certain quota, transport and levy is absorbed by them..

Only need to pay GST ...

Better be sure about the levy when you've purchased your furniture. 'Cos I believe that the tax levy is like if you bring in goods into sg where the value has to be declared & the levy calculated by the relevant party, ie; the custom, is based on the value.

Happy shopping though with more pix of your buys. :P

With the exception of skilled carpenters whom make/produces furnitures in sg locally, almost all of the furniture you see in market are imported from outside. Some are from malaysia also. lol. Not surprising that you will find this or that same model. Its just the price difference. And besides, prices will be different depending on the demand for this and that model actually. See how 'hot' it is or not

I've got my furniture from Miva in JB. 1 x 2M L shape sofa, 1 x Coffee table with 2 chairs, 1 x Dining table with 6 chairs. Total plus transport and tax is 3K plus SGD. Would cost me upwards of 5K if i were to get similar items in Singapore and from OM.

Again, the tax levy is dependent on the value of the furniture you bought. This is what I understand.

Secondly if you intend to get most of the furniture from JB required for your place, the total costs is still worth it even more. Because if you calculate the costs spent in sg for the same no of furniture you get in sg will easily be around 10sgd max which will be around the same spent in malaysia except it is in ringgit currency. That is half the price you could get in sg currency for getting most of your furniture from JB. So the tax + transport levy will be calculated based on that value which would still be much more worth it based on the currency exchange rate.

Even if you get a lorry, you will have to pass customs at the sg checkpoint & declare the total value of your furniture on your own which means you will be paying the tax levy in SGD not in RM there besides rental of lorry + fuel costs.

That sounds a good buy looking at miva's products from their website. :thumbs up:

Just made some purchase at Miva today. Was surprised with the quality there. I was expecting similar quality like those sales item in Singapore shop. But i was presantly surprised.

3+ 2+1 L-shape sofa, 1 Dining table with 6 chairs (love the thick temper glass top and chrome legs.), 1 King-size bedframe, 1 coffee table. RM$8000. Transport free. LevyRM $100.+ GST. :deal:

I must say they do have quite a few nice designs. Value for money

SImilar sofa in Sinapore would have cost me S$3K. Got it RM$3K.

Dining table-S$2K (4 chairs). Got it RM$2.6K.

BEdframe S$1.2K becomes RM$1.9K

Coffee Table - S$500. Got it RM$500

Delivery early Sept.

I'll try to laod some pics later. Now got to go sleep... :P

Hi,

You will have to undertake a certain amount of risk when you buy from M'sia, I have very faint scratches on the dining table but that is a minor inconvenience since the table is going to get more scratches in the near future. As long as there are no major defects like broken glasses or missing legs, I'd reckoned the risk is worth it.

Hi guys, for those of you who bought furniture in malaysia, how did you settle the payment? Did you pay in full? place a small deposit and paid remainder in cash when they send over or? Any bad experiences? Thanks!

U place a deposit first. Then when near to delivery date , 1 week or so before delivery, u pay up the remainder. They don't collect $ upon delivery for obvious reason.

My previous purchase was 8 years ago. No problem with it. This time round also buy in JB. Just hope everything ok.

One piece of advice though,. Better to get from bigger and established furniture shop (eg/ MIVA, Rustica, Lorenzo then those small ones). Though u'll never know..

The furniture shop I bought my things from 8 years ago is no longer in business

Happy shopping.. :)
