International Removals

Removals to UAE

Are you moving to Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Al Gharbia Dibbar or anywhere else in UAE? We can help get you there!

Excess International Movers is one of the largest international moving companies in the United Kingdom after 30 years within the industry. With the thousands of UK to UAE removals we carried out last year alone – it’s safe to say we’re well experienced.


Made up of seven states; Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al-Qaiwain, Ras Al-Khaimah and Fujairah, the UAE has become a desirable destination for expats worldwide looking to enjoy a quality of life unaffordable elsewhere.

Britons are within the top three nationalities of expats now living in the United Arab Emirates, drawn in by the perk of paying no tax on their earnings as well as beautiful beaches, active social lives and the opportunity to explore a unique landscape quite different from home. It is also the most westernised of the Middle Eastern countries, marrying the comforts of home with a glamorous and exotic lifestyle. If you’d like to learn more on relocating to the UAE, get in touch today.


There are two major transit modes when using our international removals from the UK service. Your budget, end location and urgency for your removals will help determine the most appropriate method for you.

We provide a complete door-to-door shipping service from the UK to UAE, so you can deal with the more important things, such as getting to know your new neighbours, or finishing off your itinerary.

The options when using sea freight are:

Less Container Load:

If you are shipping the contents of a small apartment, flat, a small office or even just large furniture items from your house – LCL 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.

Send Your Removals via Air Freight

Air freight is the fastest way to move goods worldwide from the United Kingdom. Air freight removals costs are calculated on the total weight of your load so it is rather costly. It is best if you are sending minimal items of furniture, a one bedroom apartment, or one or two specific rooms. When removals arrive at the end destination, there are a number of options, each varying in cost and transit time.
