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.

Professional, courteous. Lee and Clive were absolutely great, cheerful and did all we asked.

Used the company on a recommendation. Comments regarding your initial enquiry - Excellent.

Keith Inman

Appreciated everyone being so efficient at ensuring social distancing

We had John, Kim and Rob to pack our things and Lee and the team to do the removals. Everyone was so friendly and did such a great job, and we really appreciated everyone being so efficient at ensuring social distancing too as we have a very young baby who we are trying to shield. Everyone also treated our belongings with such respect which we really appreciated after a bad experience with a different removals company previously resulted in lots of our things being damaged.

Used the company because of good online reviews and great service from staff when we initially contacted with an enquiry.

Comments regarding your initial enquiry - Received a response to my initial enquiry really quickly and had all my questions answered.
