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.

How are our appointments carried out

In the current times you might prefer that we don't visit your house in person to carry out a survey. This is fully understandable and we can just as easily undertake the survey by video call, using whatever method you're comfortable with, usually FaceTime or WhatsApp.

All 5 removal men were very professional and hard working

All 5 removal men were very professional and hard working, we really appreciated the extra mile that they constantly went to. Made our daughter feel very safe and she made a friend for life (Lee). Used the company because you were the cheapest quote.

Utterly professional and charming with an outstanding focus on customer care

I would just like to give some feedback on the move carried out by your guys yesterday. The Team (John, Ian and Rob) were utterly professional and charming with an outstanding focus on customer care. The team were patient, efficient and made a stressful occasion so much easier from our point of view. These must be amongst your most valued personnel.

I thanked them personally but would like to register our satisfaction officially. In my role as a Management Consultant, travelling for many years and working for leading names in business across the globe, I have rarely experienced this quality of customer service in over 25 years of running a business.

Could I also record  my personal gratitude to you in your management of our case and in your admirable administrative skills, patience and efficiency.

We will certainly use you again when we have internal changes as we replace furniture etc.

Thank you once again for all your help. We will be in touch when we need to access the furniture and other valuables you are storing for us.
