Why should you move to the Dubai or the UAE with Britannia Bradshaw?
We have an established, long standing and successful relationship with a network of dedicated removers in the UAE. Before your goods are forwarded, their full contact details will be sent to you. Our agents are part of our extended Britannia family and we meet with them on a regular basis to ensure high standards of service are maintained. We'll help you with the paperwork for customs, and inform you of any restrictions and requirements for importation into the UAE.

Moving personal effects to the UAE and Dubai
Your household goods and personal effects are allowed duty free entry, provided that they have been owned and used prior to importation. Before your shipment is sent, all necessary documentation must be submitted and you must be in the country in order to successfully complete all customs clearance procedures.
All books, CDs, videos, DVDs and magazines are subject to physical inspection and need to be packed in separate cartons and marked clearly. They will be subject to review and censorship by the UAE Ministry of Information. Your items will be released if nothing abnormal is found. This procedure will take from 10 to 15 days.

- Firearms & ammunition (real or ornamental)
- Swords, daggers, spears, etc.
- Military uniforms and equipment
- Inflammable goods & substances

UAE removals transit times
Groupage or shared load consignments usually take eight to 12 weeks, door to door. Keep in mind this can vary depending on volumes being shipped, customs or immigration delays and weather conditions. Sole use containers usually take five to six weeks door to door. More information on shipping your belongings overseas by ship.
All Groupage consignments will be bar coded before they are loaded into the shipping container. This will ensure that no items are left at origin.

Helpful all day long
Very jolly, helpful all day long, nothing was too much. I had two quotes and felt Britannia Bradshaw was only a little more expensive but gave me reassurance that the job would be done better
The lads who did the removal were excellent.

A massive thank you to lovely Les, Paul and the gang who did a grand job of packing up all my stuff, and were always patient and good-humoured and nice to have around.Barbara TilsonBirmingham
Out of nowhere another team of guys appeared to lend a hand
Ryan was a great people person - with the hard working crew & me the client. Very good with scoping out the property & took on board advice from crew if it was a better option.
Nowhere to really improve as I've given all ten's, maybe send a couple of City fans rather that Utd.
Used based on recommendation from people who'd previously used the service.
The guys were lovely, efficient, & early all days which was amazing. It was stressful day but with your team it went better than expected. Our key was late, but from out of nowhere another team of guys appeared to lend a hand.
Comments regarding your initial enquiry - Succinct & to the point , very polite & answered all my queries
Went really well despite getting the key quite late. Ryan and the boys did a fabulous job , very patient , nothing too much trouble & very funny , It’s hard being a City fan doing a move surrounded by 7 united fans!!
