International Removals

Career advancements, migrating to a new country and retirement are among the few reasons people leave UAE. The decision to relocate can be exciting however it can also be a stressful experience if not planned carefully and can be further amplified when it involves moving with family. You might want to take all your furniture with you, or maybe just a few selected items and boxes, but the bottom line is that you need options to evaluate before you can decide. It is important to choose a mover that understands your needs and offers you a customized moving experience to take the stress out your move, something we at Leader Relocations pride ourselves on.

With the advancement of the transportation industry worldwide, movement of goods has become a lot faster, economical and easier to plan that it has been in the past. However movement of household goods still requires an understanding of the process and experience to comply with customs regulations and to ensure a smooth door to door removal.


Make Leader the first choice for your overseas move

Leader Relocations has over 20+ years experience in relocating families worldwide and our presence in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah for such a long period has helped us forge strong ties with the local community of schools, colleges, hospitals, businesses and many multinational companies.

As part of the move process we are able to advise you of the documentation required and what factors to keep in mind when moving to another country 

and how to avoid complications with customs. This sort of knowledge can only be gained over two decades of moving families to almost every corner of the world; rest assured our experience has you covered.

It is important to get in touch with us in advance of your planned moving date. The earlier you get us involved the better as we will be able to advise you of important 

details based on which your decision on what to move and what to leave behind will be made easier. Also if the country you are moving to requires some specific customs documentation in advance we will be able to advise you. Moving abroad can throw up unexpected problems and talking to us earlier on can avoid trouble later.


Survey & Estimate – The first steps to your new adventure

It’s important to have a survey done to accurately estimate the volume of the goods to be moved since the removal cost will be based on this, however If you are short on time and if your move is relatively small you can inform us the list of items to be moved over the phone or e-mail

The benefit of having a survey done is that you will be able to meet us in person before the removal and ask us questions about the moving process. During the survey you can point out to us what items you wish to take with you to your new home and if you want quotes for different options. We will also be abl e to recommend if any items need special packing. Based on the surveyed volume we will be able to quote for the best and most economical method of shipment – via Sea, Air or Road or perhaps a combination of all three!

Why not put your feet up and let one of our professional consultants help you plan your move! Please note that our survey visits and quotes are free of charge without any strings attached.


Packing & Shipping – We get it Right

Getting the packing right is an important step. A poorly packed shipment will be a wasted opportunity and will likely increase changes of damages. At Leader we make the best use of our packing materials to properly protect your shipment. Once you have decided on the removal date, a team of highly skilled packers will arrive to your residence and commence the removal. Our well researched and internationally accepted packing materials will be used to protect the shipment are where agreed a wooden crate will be used to protect fine arts and fragile items. All packages will be numbered and a packing list prepared.

If you wish to pack some personal effects yourself before the removal, we can arrange for cartons and packing supplies delivery. Please contact us for details.



We will appoint a Destination Agent to arrange for completing the removal. The agent will coordinate all the import formalities and organize for customs clearance and delivery to your new home or storage if your new home is not ready. Our destination agents are moving companies with who we have been working with for many years and International Association of Movers (IAM) members. They are familiar with the customs regulations and culture and will be able to give you the same level of service as here in UAE.



Movement of household goods can be risky even though we take care to protect your property. Risks beyond our control such as fire, theft, accident, damages and breakages can happen and its highly recommended that you should have an insurance policy to cover you against these risks. There are 3 types of insurance policy:

  • All Risks Insurance
  • Total Loss Insurance
  • Excess Baggage Insurance
