Tips for Choosing a Professional Moving Company

With so many people moving internationally and within the UAE there is certainly no shortage of moving companies in Dubai. However, not all companies are equal, here are some tips on how to choose a professional moving company.

1. Check their credentials and certifications

It is important to check the company has a trade license. A trade license is a legal certificate that allows a company to operate within the UAE, companies without a trade license are operating illegally.

It is a good idea to choose a company that is a certified member of an association such as IAM. IAM members must meet strict criteria to join the Association, so you are more likely to receive high-quality service.

2. Read the reviews

Reading reviews on Google and Facebook is a great way to see what sort of experiences other customers had with the company you are looking to hire. These reviews will give you a sense of the company’s strengths and weaknesses.

3. Ask how your goods will be packed

A reputable moving company should have a professionally trained team, who will pack your goods and furniture for you, using high-quality packing materials.

4. Select a company that has been around for a while

Selecting a company with a proven track record will ensure that the company is reliable and knowledgeable within the moving industry. Companies that have been in existence for a long time will have a trained team of experienced packers.

5. Vehicles

Although we operate in a dry climate it does rain and we do suffer different weather elements that are detrimental to your personal belongings – ensure your moving company provides closed vehicles.

Whilst everyone has a budget to stick to, the price should not be your only deciding factor. All of the above should be carefully considered before making a decision based on costs. Generally, you will get what you pay for and if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.

Most reputable moving companies in Dubai will have an agent who will pay you a visit, free of any charges or obligations, in order to provide you with an accurate quote.
