Removal Service To UAE / Dubai
Simpsons International Removals is a leading removal company, offering you a comprehensive range of services if you are looking to move your belongings to UAE, each tailored to meet different needs and budgets.
Sea Freight Service – Container Shipping
For those who might be moving larger quantities of goods or seeking an even more cost-effective solution, sea freight services are also available. Whether that’s a full-load 20ft or 40ft container for larger moves or a part-load container for smaller quantities, sea freight is known for its economic value, especially for substantial moves, and while it may take longer than road transport, it offers a reliable and cost-effective solution for transporting your goods over longer distances.
Air Freight Service – For Small Moves
For the quickest transportation of your belongings to UAE, air freight is the recommended option. This express courier service is ideal for smaller moves, such as sending boxes or luggage. Air freight stands out for its speed, making it the perfect choice for those who need their items to arrive in UAE as quickly as possible. However, it is important to note that while air freight is the fastest method, it is generally more expensive than road or sea freight and is best suited for larger volumes of goods.

UAE / Dubai Removals FAQ Guide & Moving Checklist
What are the removal costs to UAE (including Dubai and Abu Dhabi)?
The cost of removals to the UAE obviously varies depending on the quantity you are taking and where in the Emirates you are moving to.
The good news is that, as so many people move from the UK to UAE, the cost of removals is surprisingly cheap – especially in areas around the popular Emirates such as Dubai and Abu Dhabi. But we are happy to deliver to all the Emirates including Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Fujairah, Ras Al Khaimah, Sharjah and Umm Al Quwain.
The cheapest removals to the Emirates are by sea and costs per cubic foot decrease significantly as volume increases. You’ll certainly find that it is a lot cheaper to use our furniture removal service than to replace them all when you arrive in the UAE.
We offer a range of removal options depending on your budget. This includes economy part load road freight or shared shipping container, dedicated road freight or full container load by sea or express air freight for small and urgent moves.
You can use our online cost calculator to get an initial price or for a more accurate estimate, we highly recommend booking a home or video survey to get a more formal quote for the cost of your move to UAE.
Remember our removal quotes are for a comprehensive door-to-door service including packing and standard customs clearance. Our quote does not include customs fees and duties which may be payable to local authorities on arrival.
How long do international removals to UAE from the UK take?
Removals to the UAE usually take 3-5 weeks for our full container service and 7-10 weeks for our part load (groupage) service.
These shipping times are for delivery to port, you will need to allow additional time for customs clearance on arrival in the UAE.
When relocating your belongings to UAE, Simpsons’ comprehensive packing services have you covered. Our expert packing teams excel in export wrapping your furniture and efficiently packing boxes to ensure their safe arrival in flawless condition. Our highly trained packing crews specialise in packing for overseas moves and have years of experience.
We offer a range of export quality double-walled boxes of different sizes including tea cartons, book cartons and bike cartons. Other packing materials include blanket wrap, flow pack, bubble wrap and secure packing tape.
We can also provide bespoke custom wood cases and crates for delicate and special items that need additional protection. Our service also includes specialised antique packing, ensuring these valuable items are meticulously protected.
With our extensive experience in managing delicate and fragile items, we assure that every piece, from everyday furniture to precious antiques, receives the highest level of care and professional handling throughout the moving process.
We provide a range of storage services for your belongings if you moving to UAE. We have storage facilities across the UK and can also store your goods in UAE until you are ready to receive them.
We have highly secure warehouses and can offer a range of flexible storage solutions depending on your needs including short term and longer term storage.
Removal Service for the UAE
At Simpsons we offer a variety of overseas removal services to meet your needs. Do not worry if you are unsure about which is most suitable for you as our advisers will be happy to talk you through the different options.
Full Household Overseas Removal Service
For full household removal of a 3 or 4 bedroom house we would usually recommend a full container for your sole use. These usually come in two sizes –20 and 40 ft.
We will pack the container at your house and it will be secured and customs sealed before heading off to the port.
Shared Container (Part Load) Overseas Removal Service
For smaller moves with furniture, boxes and other items, the most cost effective option is our shared container service, sometimes called part load. In this case, we pack your belongings at your home and take them to one of our depots where they will be loaded into a container with other customers belongings heading for the same part of the UAE.
This is a cheap option for removals to the UAE as the costs are shared proportionally.
Box and Bag Removal Service
For small moves to the UAE, we recommend our box and bag removal service. This is the cheapest way to move your belongings to the UAE. We provide you with export-quality cartons/boxes and packing materials.
We then collect your packed boxes and transport them to the Emirates by air or sea freight depending on your preference and budget.
International Removal Insurance for your Move to the UAE
We would recommend taking out Shipment Protection Cover for peace of mind whilst your belongings are on their journey.
Whilst we have expert packers who specialise in international removals and use accredited shipping lines who take special care of personal shipping containers, we cannot control every eventuality.
Just as you will likely have home contents insurance in the UK and travel insurance for your family, we recommend you discuss with your Move Manager the available options for protecting your belongings whist they are in transit.
Furniture removals UK to UAE
Moving furniture to the UAE from the UK needs far more care and attention than for a domestic removal. Each item is carefully packed using export wrapping before being loaded into the shipping container.
You can take all kinds of furniture to the Emirates including sofas, chairs, tables, cupboards as well as white goods such as washing machines and fridge freezers.
There are a variety of methods to ship your car or other vehicle to Dubai and the UAE. For example in a container or by a roll-on-roll off service.
It is often cost effective to send your car in the same shipping container as your house removal so that everything arrives at the same time.
There are some import requirements you need to be aware of before you ship your car to the United Arab Emirates. We suggest you contact our team to discuss options and the shipping process.
Although Simpsons will take care of all the details they can for you, this convenient checklist will make preparing for the move as simple and worry free as possible.
Moving out: Before the removal men arrive, be clear in what they are contracted to do and what you are expected to do. If in doubt, ask the surveyor or a member of our staff. Ordinarily, both householder and the removal men have fairly defined responsibilities (though a measure of flexibility on both sides is of course desirable)
Children: Children, who are naturally curious and can easily get in the way, may potentially be injured. The younger ones are best left with a neighbour or friend until it is time to leave.
Swings/Climbing frames: Generally dismantling these is one job you will do yourself, but be careful not to lose the bolts. If you wish us to arrange dismantling please discuss this with our surveyor
Garage/Shed: Tie together garden tools, and prepare items to be lifted straight onto the vehicle.
Self assembly furniture: If you have any furniture of the home assembly type particularly if made of chipboard, please note that we recommend dismantling units before the move, as the joints are seldom strong enough to survive even careful handling if the furniture is moved whilst still assembled.
Washing machines: Secure your washing machine drum, and disconnect from water supply and electric.
Books: Books are very heavy, use our book cartons as they are smaller and easier to manage.
China & glass: Wrap each item individually in packing paper or bubble wrap, packing the heavier items first with lighter pieces on top. Remember that plates and dishes are packed vertically and not laid flat.
Moving in: Make sure that you (or some other responsible person) is on hand to admit the removal men. If no-one is there and a reasonable waiting time expires, you could find yourself landed with storage and re-delivery charges. Enquire how long the vehicle will wait should you be inadvertently delayed on the way. It can also save time and confusion if you stand at the entrance and specify the location of each item as it is carried in.
Helping the move along: If you follow the guidelines suggested on this page you will find the removal men themselves responding to your good sense with extra efficiency and relaxed good humour. You can also help the move along by remembering to pack the kettle last. A cup of tea all round is a gesture always much appreciated.
Tipping: There is, of course, no obligation to tip the men, but, as with all personal services, people like to reward extra attention, willing good humour or a job well done. If you feel that a reward has been earned, the driver or packer in charge will distribute any gratuity given amongst the crew.
