What Is the Cost of Moving from The UAE to Another Country?E. Ali
Ask yourself this question:
- Do you only want to bring a few boxes?
- Do you want to bring all of your personal and clothing?
- Are you looking to move furniture?
- Do you need move your appliances?
Do I have to sell my stuff or should it be taken with me?
In the UAE, second-hand furniture and household items sell for very little. You can see the unsold sofas on any of the online classified sites.
Many people, especially families and those who have lived in the area for a long time, choose to ship their belongings back.
Once you have decided what you want to do, it might be a good idea to get in touch with movers in Dubai. You could also decide to give away, sell or bring most of your stuff on the plane.
What will it cost?
If you’ve already packed your items for shipment abroad, then the last expense you need to pay is international shipping costs. Here are some tips:
- Container size – It is more expensive to have a larger place than you think.
- Shipping method – There are only two options. Shipping by sea is the most economical, but shipping by air is more expensive.
- Distance – It is more expensive to move to a country that is farther away.
These are the approximate shipping costs for a two-bedroom apartment of approximately 25 cubic meters.

How do I pack my house?
Before you make your move:
- Eliminate things that you don’t use
The first thing is the most important! You don’t want to waste space by moving items you don’t need or use anymore. Start by selling or donating any extra items.
- Lookout for boxes
If you are short on cash, go to the supermarkets or furniture stores before closing and ask if they have any of their boxes left over.
- Do not grocery shop
You should avoid buying groceries for at least two weeks before moving in. Your fridge should be empty before you move in.
- Purchase a roll of ceramic wrap
Protect your furniture by keeping it together with ceramic wrap. This will help you keep your furniture safe during your move.
- Pack an overnight bag
You should always have a small bag with all of your essentials. You will need to have a spare pair of underwear, a toothbrush, and some change of clothes so you don’t have the hassle of looking through boxes.
