What to Expect when Moving to UAE from New York

UAE or the United Arab Emirates are located just south of the Persian Gulf (by which it is bordered) and north and west of Saudi Arabia. Though the primary language used in the UAE is Arabic, English is a prominent secondary language that is used primarily amongst businesses. NY International Shipping suggests that you do a bit of research regarding the Muslim religion as that is the primary religion practiced in the UAE. Both men and women will be expected to adhere to certain Muslim customs in regards to dress and holidays in many places. Ask your relocation specialist to point you in the right direction for references on the matter if you are at a loss for where to start. If you are moving to UAE you will probably be happy to learn that the economy is booming, having grown steadily since 2005. Abu Dhabi and Dubai remain the two most wealthy, powerful Emirates of the seven. If you are moving to UAE, you probably already know that oil and gas are the main industries of the United Arab Emirates, which is one of the most prominent hubs for the world’s gas and oil production. As a result, many international companies relocate their employees here to establish business. For this reason you should have no problem moving to UAE with NY International Shipping. For information on how and where to obtain a visa, contact the UAE Consulate in your area for more information.

Which Overseas Moving Company should I use for Moving to UAE?

Choosing the right overseas moving company is one of the key components to successfully moving to UAE. When comparing different companies, NY International Shipping suggests approaching the matter using apples-to-apples comparison. By using this method you should be able to compare prospective international relocation companies accurately and quickly to assess which one fits your family’s needs in regards to services provided as well as which can also meet your budget. To do this you must acquire quotes from each of the overseas moving companies you are considering for moving to UAE based on the exact same shipment volume using the same services, start and end points and dates. Once you have these, you should be able to see who offers the most competitive rates based on the same factors.

Another thing to consider when moving to AUE is the reputation of the overseas moving companies you are considering. Ask for referrals from past clients. Companies that provide excellent service should have referrals from satisfied former clients to share with prospective clients. Also, check out third-party review sites regarding past clients’ experiences. These sites typically allow consumers to rate companies based on their experiences as well as share insight on the services they used. This is one of the most impartial, honest opinions you will be able to find. Consider paying a visit to the brick and mortar office of any overseas moving company under consideration. Never trust a company without a physical location that you can visit! While there, make note of the way in which they handle their business and customer service. Ensure that whatever overseas moving company you choose is a licensed Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier (NVOCC) by the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC), is licensed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and is properly licensed and bonded. Finally, look into what kind of organizations each international relocation company is affiliated with. Experienced, well-networked companies should be affiliated with applicable organizations such as:

Employee Relocation Council/Worldwide ERC®
Foreign Commerce Club of New York
IAM (International Association of Movers)
NY/NJ Foreign Freight Forwarders & Brokers Association Inc.
YP 35 (Young International Movers)
