Moving from one location to another can be stressful. There’s the fear of cargo getting damaged and lost and of course the stress of packing it all so nothing gets left behind. Today, you don’t have to do this on your own. There are a number of packaging companies in Dubai that can make your move a smoother experience. A Google search will give you a long list of names but how do you choose between them? Here are a few tips.

ReferralsIdeally, don’t start your search online. The number of options available will only confuse you. Instead, ask your friends and family for references. Almost everyone has moved at some point of time or the other and it shouldn’t be too difficult to get a few names of packing companies that your friends have had experience with. You can also ask your friends for details about their referrals such as how prompt the response was, the amount of work they needed to do themselves, types of packing material used, etc.Shortlist companies that have an office in your city. Once you have your shortlist, then take your search online. Read through other testimonials to further shortlist company names. There will always be the odd bad experience in the list of reviews but if there are more good ones than bad, your cargo is in the right hands.

Scope of ServiceIf you’re handling the move on your own, it would be ideal to work with a company that offers end to end service. This means, they take responsibility for packing your cargo, loading it onto the moving vehicle, transporting it and unloading it at the destination. Depending on the type of cargo and destination, you may also want to check their availability for unpacking the cargo. However, there may also be instances where the move is being handled by someone else. For example, if you’re sending your motorbike by rail, you need to find a packing company that packs the bike and keeps it ready to be transported.

ExperienceMost packaging companies in Dubai offer a wide range of services. However, they may also offer specialized services. For example, household packing, vehicle packing, packing in skeleton crates, heat shrink wrapping, etc. Depending on what you need packed, look for a company with relevant services and experience. You don’t want to find yourself working with a company that has only worked with household moves when you need to move heavy machinery to a new factory location! Many companies also offer customized packing solutions.

When you’ve got a professional to handle the packing, moving should be stress-free. You will typically get multiple quotes from all the different packaging companies in Dubai you’ve shortlisted. While it is important for their service to match your budget, don’t let this be the deciding factor. It is more important for your cargo to be safely transported and reach the destination intact than to save a little money. If you’re moving expensive cargo, you may also want to look into insuring it during transportation.
