The removal costs for removals to UAE, including popular destinations such as Abu Dhabi, will depend on whether you use a full container load or part container load. It will also depend on whether you use an air freight service or sea freight service for your move to UAE & Dubai.

We recommend that you use an air freight service if you require quick transit times for your removals service to UAE and Dubai.

For a more economical service, we recommend that you use a sea freight service for your move to UAE & Dubai. However, the transit times will be slower compared to air freight.

Many of our customers will use both air freight & sea freight services. Air freight can be used for goods that need to be transported quickly, and goods that are less urgent in their move can be transported using a sea freight service.

Both our air freight & sea freight service offers an outstanding service and you will receive your personal effects in excellent condition.

Our export packing & wrapping service will make moving easier as it will ensure that your packing meets the requirements for moving to UAE including Abu Dhabi. You will receive vast knowledge about export packing and wrapping with our team. This will ensure that your goods arrive safe and secure for their journey to the UAE & Dubai.

Our international moving process includes a moving manager who will help you throughout your move to Dubai & UAE. The moves manager will answer any questions that you have and will be the first point of contact for your move.

Our comprehensive moving services also include inventory. This can be used if you require personal effects to be transported at a later date and need a reliable company to store your goods for when you need them.

UAE / Dubai Removals FAQ Guide & Moving Checklist

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.

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.

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.

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.
