Did you know that there are 400 removal companies in the UAE, and that finding a good moving company can be more challenging than moving itself? Some would even say it’s more difficult than finding accommodations in Dubai.
So to help you out, we asked the experts at Wemove to compile a list of tips on selecting the “right” removing company in the UAE.
Tip No. 1: ACCREDITATIONS
Choosing a removal company that is certified by the International Association of Movers (IAM), or Fédération Internationale des Déménageurs (FIDI) is a good starting point. Look for additional certifications such as ISO to gauge a company’s efficiency and effectiveness.
Tip No. 2: TRAINED CREW
Most “man & van” companies in Dubai and Abu Dhabi don’t have permanent employees; instead they simply hire casual labourers to do all the lifting and packing. If the movers and packers aren’t trained, then your valuables won’t receive the respect they deserve. Find out if the company employs professionals, if they don’t, then you don’t need them.
Tip No. 3: CUSTOMER RATINGS AND REVIEWS
This doesn’t mean accepting what they tell you on their website or brochure. Make sure you visit online forums such as ExpatWoman, or portals for authentic reviews or call people who have experienced the service firsthand. MoveSouq.com collects and publishes reviews from real customers to help you in just that so you check out your movers there before you make a decision.
Tip No. 4: INFRASTRUCTURE & MATERIAL
In general, good removal companies have (1) uniformed professionals, (2) use branded packing materials, (3) use closed trucks, (4) and have their own warehouses for storage purposes.
Tip No. 5: INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE
Finally, experience matters. Look for companies that have been in business for over 5 years. A company’s age is a measure of its dependability.
We’re confident that these tips will enable you to select the right removing company in the UAE. However, if you still need help, please go right ahead and contact MoveSouq.com, we are sure they’ll be happy to help you.
