The Moving Process

After the initial phone call/email from the international moving companies in Dubai. It is vital you arrange a pre-move survey a number of weeks prior to your move date.

A visit to you home enables the moving company to

  • Evaluate the volume of goods
  • Assess the logistics of the move at origin and destination
  • Fully understand your international moving requirements and schedule
  • Elaborate and highlight how they can help
  • Empower you with the knowledge to make informed decisions

During the pre-move survey, the moving companies consultant should walk around your home with you, making a detailed inventory of the items you wish to move. Based on this inventory, they will estimate the volume of your goods, allowing for an accurate quotation.

The moving consultant will be able to talk you through any paperwork you need to complete and find out more about your schedule, such as departure dates from origin, arrival dates at destination. This will help to determine the packing and shipping schedule and whether storage needs to be considered. Also consideration of  access at  your new residence is particularly important, providing a zip/post code at this time if possible is highly advisable.

You should expect a tailored quotation to be sent to you within 2 working days. It is important to check the quotation covers the full scope of your international moving requirements. If details are inaccurate or incorrect, ask the consultant to send a new quotation as this will form the basis of your contract.

At this point the moving consultant is your primary contact. Feel free to liaise with the consultant relating to the quotation or any aspect of the relocation process.

Once you are in a position to confirm the move, schedule dates taking into consideration any departure/delivery deadlines you may have.

Wise Move Tip – Confirm in writing. Most companies have a contract or acceptance form for you to complete. This is a key document as it will be referenced should there be any concerns/disputes later in the process. We cannot over-emphasise enough the importance of this document.

Once this is done, you will be assigned an operations contact person who will co-ordinate the move.

The packers are an integral part of any moving company. It is important the foreman/leader of the team is able to clearly communicate with you.

Wise Move Tip – We recommend you walk through your residence with the foreman checking details from his work instruction to ensure he fully understands the scope of the work he and his team will undertake, ie. items to be excluded, fragile items, items to be crated. This should be noted and catered for. Any concerns, do not hesitate to call the moving company and demand this is properly addressed.

The foreman should introduce all of the team members and work can begin. Ideally staircases, walls and doorways should be protected.

Every carton or item of furniture packed has a description,  and is assigned a number which are added to the packing list which is prepared by the foreman towards the final stage of packing.

Once the packing and list is complete the goods are loaded at residence, either directly into the container, or into a  moving trucks (if the goods need to be shuttled, or are transferred to a storage facility).

During loading the foreman uses a load list to account for every item removed from your residence.

Wise Move Tip – Before the team leaves, take 5 minutes to walk through your residence with the foreman to ensure nothing is left behind, check bathrooms, closets and behind doors. This also provides an opportunity to make certain all packing debris has been removed.

Airlines and shipping lines have strengths in certain regions and destinations. Your mover will have taken this into account when preparing your quotation. In order to proactively avoid delays it is important to ensure the routing is as direct as possible.

Wise Move Tip – Tallk to your mover about routing. This is particularly important if your goods have to change vessels/aircraft en route, note the transshipment dates (especially sea shipments).

The fact is despite best efforts delays can occasionally occur, due to congestion or bad weather, or other situations beyond the movers control.

Wise Move Tip – For the most up to date information you can always track your shipment directly from the carrier. Ask the mover for the website address and your shipment bill of lading or Air waybill number.

At destination all movers have a network of offices/trusted service partners. Your mover sends shipping and customs documentation ahead of time and liaises with the service partner prior to arrival, and during the customs clearance process to ensure everything is progressing smoothly.

Arrangements will be made in advance to cater for restricted access, for example a shuttle service to a location with narrow lanes, or an external elevator, or a long-carry (over 30 meters).

Wise Move Tip – It is vitally important to ensure this has been addressed and agreed upon during the survey/quotation stage, hence providing zip/post codes early in the process. If not, significant additional costs may apply.

Once a delivery date has been established the goods will be delivered to your residence and unloaded ensuring all boxes are accounted for. All items will be placed into appropriate rooms

The delivery team will unpack all furniture for you, and also contents to a flat surface. Basic furniture items will be re-assembled. They will even take away the packing materials for recycling, where available. Upon completion, you will be asked to sign delivery documentation.

Wise Move Tip – Prior to signing anything, make sure the scope of work has met your expectation. If not, call the mover. Ensure you note anything which appears damaged or unaccounted for.  

Damage is unusual and wide-spread damage extremely rare. However it is important you follow procedures in order to expedite a claim. You can read more about insurance here.
