Transit methods for removals from the UAE to the UK

There are two main transit modes when using the UAE removals service and the best method for you can be determined by three key factors – your budget, end location and urgency.

Sea Freight 

GRP: If you are shipping the contents of a small apartment, flat, a small office or even just large furniture items from your house – GRP is the best option for you. Your effects are stowed and secured within a shared container and you will only pay for the space your possessions occupy.

Full Container Load: FCL is the favoured option for those shipping an entire home or large work offices etc. You will be charged for a 20ft or 40ft container depending on the volume of your international removals and you can fill the container how you wish.

Approximate Sea Freight Transit Time: 8 -14 weeks

Air Freight 

Although air freight is a more costly way to move goods from Australia to the UK, it is a far quicker and more convenient. All Removals from Australia to the UK costs are calculated on the total weight of your consignment when using air freight. It is best if you need to send a one bedroom apartment, minimal items of furniture, or just one or two specific rooms from your home or office, for example. Upon arrival of your removals, there are a few options each varying in cost and delivery time.

Approximate Air Freight Transit Times: 5 – 10 working days
