International Removal Companies to Dubai


When moving to Dubai, you will have the choice of shipping (cheaper, but slower) or having your possessions sent by air freight.

You removals company will be able to estimate the volume of goods to be shipped, list specific objects (including fragile items) and specify the way that furniture will be dismantled and reassembled, prior to providing an estimate of the cost of your removal. preliminary estimate will be established. On the day of the removal, a team will arrive to carry out the task. Every box will be listed (necessary to check if any box has been lost). Everything should be wrapped with specific protection. Containers are then sealed (check carefully) and forwarded to their destination. Classical problems are: containers are 32 m3 and the more you have, the longer it may take to transport your belongings; always check the date of delivery by calling the company; check seals at the departure and upon arrival; avoid the end of the summer holiday; and as you have to check the furniture upon arrival, be sure to be able to read and understand the list. European white goods will generally be useable in Dubai, but those purchased in the USA operate on a different voltage.

Your remover will be able to provide details of the level of insurance that is available for your possessions whilst they are in transit. You must read the policy document carefully and ensure that you fully understand any sections that may limit the liability of the removal company in the event of loss of, or damage to, your goods. If you require storage for some of your possessions, such as bulky items of furniture, your remover may be able to offer this service or recommend a local supplier.

It is unlikely to be economically viable to export your car to Dubai. Cars are relatively inexpensive to purchase in Dubai, particularly as regular 'trading-up' of cars by residents ensures a cheap and ready supply of second hand vehicles, some as little as six months old. It is probable that your car could be replaced by a vehicle purchased in Dubai at a lower cost than that of shipping it.

Highly recommended and to be avoided movers
We have done one local move within Dubai and one move from Dubai to Qatar.

We used Interem for the second move and they were outstandings - the best movers we have ever used (out of 7 moves). Very efficient and packed everything really well - zero damage in a 40 foot container of stuff.

By contrast Write Relocation, who handled our local move in Dubai, were a disaster. Refrigerated food left unrefrigerated for 36 hours, kitchen cupboards 'missed out' in the packing, a number of items damaged including an Indonesian poster bed which had previously survived moves to Hong Kong, London, Canada and back to Hong Kong, taking insurance premium for items which the insurance company subsequently said were outside the policy, and taking over 12 months to settle the insurance claim (they agreed to make a payment of about 40% of the value of lost and damaged good 6 months ago but despite numerous promises no money paid yet).
