What Happens on Moving Day?

Your Move Manager will advise you on what you’ll need to do to prepare items for moving day, including which items need cleaning and disinfecting.

Please advise us beforehand if you decide to take additional items so we can ensure that they will fit on the container and also if necessary update your quote.

On moving day our professional and friendly international movers and packers will take care of everything for you. Typically for a full house overseas removal, they begin packing furniture on day one and your shipping container will arrive for loading sometime on day two.

For part container loads we will take your packed belongings to our depot for loading onto the container.

How Are My Belongings Packed?

Our specially trained and experienced export packers will ensure all your belongings are speedily but carefully packed before being loaded into your shipping container. Over 10,000 miles by sea from UK to the United Emirates is a long journey so higher packing standards and different techniques are needed than used by a standard domestic removal company.

For delicate items and antiques, we have even higher grade materials including custom made wooden crates if required.

Furniture Removals to UAE

Can I Self-Pack my Furniture Removal to UAE?

It is recommended to use professional international removalists who are specially trained and experienced in export wrapping and packing for overseas furniture removals.

However, we do have an option available if you want to pack your belongings yourself.

Can I Ship my Car, Motorbike or Other Vehicle?

We are able to help you ship vehicles overseas including cars, motorcycles, motorhomes and caravans to the Emirates. They can be shipped in the same container as your household goods or separately.

There are a number of factors you need to consider when importing cars into Dubai or the UAE, so we suggest you speak to one of our advisers or visit our UAE vehicle shipping page for more information.
