Removals to Dubai & the United Arab Emirates (UAE)
If you are planning on moving to the United Arab Emirates, whether to Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah or another location, Britannia Bradshaw has the expertise to tailor the move to your individual needs.
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.
If you want to store some of your personal items in the UK, we can also handle that for you in our modern, purpose built warehouse.
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.

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.

Excellent service - the removal guys (3 of them) were very helpful, kind and did an amazing job - couldn't have asked for more! Everything went as well as it could have. I used based on the price and the service they offered.
I could not be happier with the service. I was nervous about moving as I haven't used a service like this before but everything was just perfect. It was some of the best money I have ever spent - everything from start to finish was perfect. Thank you so much for the excellent service, I will definitely be recommending your services and use again if I move (hopefully not for a while!!!)
Very helpful with regards to arranging a video call and working through what needs to be done.Alexandra HessBirmingham
Took the stress out of the move
Efficient, friendly and very organised - took the stress out of the move. The company was a recommendation from friends.Gareth JonesManchester
[We had] Only one gentleman, but he was very efficient and did an excellent job. A great job. Very helpful and appointment made.
Made the process effortless
Your team were fantastic. We had packing the day before - and all the lads that turned up were brilliant. They were very friendly and they made the process effortless.
I've forgotten the names of the guys that did the move - but if you could thank them for being superstars I'd appreciate it.Steve AllottManchester
