FAQ for Shipping to USA

What is the cost of moving to the USA from Dubai?

The cost of relocating from Dubai to USA depends on a number of factors. 

The most important factor is the volume of furniture you are moving. The more furniture you move, the higher 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.


How long does it take to ship to the USA?

When estimating how long shipping from Dubai to the US 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 – (4-6 Days)

Sole Container by Sea – (40 – 50 Days)

Part Container by Sea – (60 – 90 Days)

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