Removals to the United Arab Emirates (UAE)

If you are planning on moving to the UAE, whether to Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah or another location, we have the expertise to tailor the move to your individual needs.

We have an established, long standing and successful relationship with a network of dedicated removers in the UAE. We'll also help you with the paperwork for customs, and inform you of any restrictions and requirements for importation into the UAE.

If you want to store some of your personal items in the UK, we can also handle that for you in our modern, purpose built warehouse.

Moving personal effects to the UAE

Your household goods and personal effects are usually allowed duty free entry, provided that they have been owned and used prior to importation. Before your shipment is sent, all necessary documentation must be submitted and you must be in the country in order to successfully complete all customs clearance procedures.

All books, CDs, videos, DVDs and magazines are subject to physical inspection and need to be packed in separate cartons and marked clearly. They will be subject to review and censorship by the UAE Ministry of Information. Your items will be released if nothing abnormal is found. This procedure will take from 10 to 15 days.

Very efficient at packing

Anthony, Darren G and Kim G moved me on Monday 8th March.

I just wanted to say that I was extremely happy with the service. They were polite, professional and did a brilliant job! They were very efficient at packing and they moved my belongings with care and there wasn't anything that I wasn't happy with.

Fran Chambers

Did everything needed to make the move happen smoothly, efficiently and painlessly

The three guys were excellent. Courteous, helpful, polite, friendly, made a traumatic experience palpable. The move went better than expected. Used the company based on reputation.

The three men deserve a pat on the back, they really did everything needed to make the move happen smoothly, efficiently and painlessly.
