Finding The Right Moving Company
With such a transient population of ex-pats to cater for, there are 100+ moving companies in Dubai who offer moving-related services ranging from packing and wooden crating, to local moves within the city, domestic moves to Abu Dhabi or any of the 7 Emirates, storage services, and moving overseas services by sea or air.
It is also important to understand moving companies in Dubai tend to specialise in different areas. Some movers have their roots in shipping and logistics and have created a moving company department in order to boost revenues and diversify their portfolio of services.
Others specialise in storage and warehousing and have added packing and moving services. In addition, there are several established moving companies in Dubai who have multiple offices throughout the Middle East and in many cases several International offices.
Whether you are searching for a small family run moving company or a blue-chip moving company present in multiple International locations, it is all available in the UAE.

Getting a Quotation
When do I receive the quote?
Depends on the requirement, if your move is relatively small and straight forward, a quote could be emailed to you almost immediately after the mover has called you.
On the other hand, if your move is a little more complex, an appointment is required and after the pre-move survey is completed.
Quotes usually take 24-48 hours due to the need to get refreshed updated rates from the shipping line and moving agent at destination.
How much does this cost?
Our service is totally FREE, you will be contacted by moving companies for your free quotes.
How much does moving cost?
Straight forward moves, with easy customs clearance generally are unlikely to incur additional costs. However if the container/shipment is selected for a physical inspection then additional costs can be applied. This can be an extensive topic and we would recommend you reading our article about Hidden Moving Costs and how to avoid them.
Are all quotes door to door?
All quotes provided are door to door unless specified otherwise.
There are certain mitigating circumstances for example, the delivery area at destination is tricky and additional services is required such as long carry, delivery above 1st floor without elevators, heavy items which require extra equipment etc.
This is all specified in the moving companies’ quotation. Take the time to go through it so you are prepared.

How much advanced notice should I give?
It is unusual for any moving company in Dubai to be solidly booked up all year round, so, in general, between 2-3 weeks is normally more than sufficient. However the peak season (May – September especially) booking dates 4-6 weeks ahead is ideal.
Should I leave anything I pack unsealed?
Yes! Discuss this with the packing crew foreman so he can quickly confirm the contents and that the goods are sufficiently protected. This avoids the need to write Packed by owner or PBO on the packing list.
Can I pack some of my own items?
This is a very common request and the more professional moving companies in Dubai are normally willing to drop some packing materials ahead of moving day, allowing you to get a head start on personal items such as sentimental keepsakes, clothing, trinkets etc… which many people feel more comfortable organising in advance.
Do I have to pack anything myself?
Most movers offer a packing service – some more comprehensive than others. So, the bulk of the work will be handled by the moving company. Most moving companies in Dubai provide basics like boxes, tape and bubble-wrap, however, the more professional movers can also provide hanging cartons for clothing, paper blankets, styro-foam chips and wooden crates.
How is fragile items handled?
This may take the form of, special handling or a particular packing/crating request. Always specify your requirements to the moving consultant/surveyor at the pre-move survey. They will in-turn ensure the instructions are passed to the packing crew leader on the day.
It is always a good idea to walk through your home on the first day of packing to make sure all instructions are clearly understood.
Some moving companies in Dubai invest heavily in training and personal development of staff members which results in excellent packers and great support staff who can help you through the entire moving process.
Other movers focus on their logistical strengths and may even outsource the packing and loading to a third party company.
Industry accreditation such as FIDI/FAIM and OMNI in addition to ISO 9001-Quality Management System and to a lesser extent IAM and BAR are good indicators of a professional moving company.
FIDI is the global alliance of quality-certified international moving, storage and relocation companies.
The International Association of Movers (IAM) is the moving industry's largest global trade association.
BAR is the trade association for removal and storage services UK with over 250 International Associates worldwide.
FAIM (FIDI Accredited International Mover) is the most stringent quality programme for the moving industry.
American Moving & Storage Association, USA's national trade association for the professional moving industry.
OMNI (Overseas Moving Network International) is a network of moving and relocation companies operating on every continent.
Many moving companies in Dubai claim to provide complete peace of mind during the stressful time of a local or international move but that is easier said than done.
It is important to obtain a reasonable number of quotations from a variety of movers in Dubai so that you can properly contrast and compare the service and value for money you expect to receive.
