Shipping from Dubai to Italy

Steeped in history and culture Italy is a vibrant, sociable country to live in, and then there is the food! Not just in restaurants but in amazing markets and stores with regional cuisine popular throughout the country. However, whether you are shipping from Dubai to Italy for the first time, or returning home as an Italian citizen. Relocating can be a daunting experience and the upheaval of changing Jobs/Lifestyle/Location can be stressful.

What should I prioritise when moving from the UAE to Italy?

When should I start obtaining quotes for my relocation to Italy?

We would suggest you start obtaining quotes for shipping to Italy at least 2 months before the target move date.

This provides time to compare your quotations, formally advise the shipping company you have chosen and importantly, secure your preferred moving dates.

Also, this allows sufficient time to finalise your visa/travel/shipping documents and all the other formalities you have to contend with before your move. Italy is a county with quite a bit of red-tape and so this is likely to take more time than you anticipate.

What is the cost of moving to Italy from Dubai?

The cost of relocating from Dubai to Italy depends on a few factors. The most important factor is the volume of furniture. Generally speaking, the more furniture you include in your move, the higher the cost. 

Secondly is the Mode of shipping you choose. 

You can choose to move your items in your own shipping container, or if you’re moving only a few items and only a small amount of furniture you could choose a shared container.

This is known as “Groupage” in the moving industry. Of course, sharing a container, or Groupage, is likely more cost-effective than a dedicated container. However, the compromise you make is shipping times can be a little longer.

Approximate shipping cost options to Italy are as follows:

Full Container (20ft / 40ft) – Starting from AED 18,000 AED

Groupage (Shared Container) – Starting from AED 800/CBM

LCL (Less than a container load) – Starting from AED 950/CBM

Air (Quickest, Most Expensive) – Starting from AED 35/KG

How long does it take to ship my goods to Italy?

When estimating how long shipping from Dubai to Italy takes, we have to consider the mode the goods would be travelling in. Air is the quickest and Sea is the slowest. 

Approximate transit times

Air Shipment – (3-4 Days)

Sole Container by Sea – (25-30 Days)

Part Container by Sea – (45-60 Days)

Another consideration when estimating time-frame is processing the shipment and customs clearance in Dubai and in Italy. We would allow up to 1 week at both ends. (Airfreight should take a couple of days at both ends).
