4 STEPS TO PACK AN ARTWORK SAFELY FOR SHIPPING

Thinking to participate in a big art competition across the seas and displaying your amazing artwork on international level? Great! But have you arranged for the packing of your beautiful creation to keep it safe from breakage and wear and tear during the transition? If you haven’t planned that part of your journey then you’re going to lose even before the commencement of the event. Being one of the leading Moving Companies in Dubai, we always advice aspiring as well as professional artists to pay due care on packing of the artwork. For your help, here are few useful tips that would help you pack the artwork safely.

COLLECT MATERIAL

If you’re thinking to wrap up your artwork in a big carton box then you’re taking risk of destroying your art before it reaches the destination. Being one of the leading moving companies in Dubai, we always advice our customers to arrange for proper packing material for paintings that they want to ship. For packing the art pieces securely, you need special packing material like bubble wraps, padded paper, glassine paper and rigid carton boxes of accurate size. Next, you need to arrange for tools like tape gun, box corners, stickers and rulers for measurement purposes. Before we move further, also arrange for foam to keep the artwork away from damages during the packing process.

TAKE MEASUREMENTS

After completing all the required tools for packing your masterpiece, you need to take correct measurements of your artwork. The reason for taking measurements is to avoid any shaking or breakage even after you pack and ship the painting to the desired address. During the transition phase, your artwork would be facing a lot of jerks that could break the frame or impact on the canvas. So you need to be sure that your artwork is packed without leaving a room empty and it would be delivered securely for the exhibition. Later when done packing the artwork using bubble wraps and padded paper, you may fill the gaps of half inches with additional bubble wraps. Just make sure the artwork stays in its place when you move the packing box back and forth.

LABEL YOUR ARTWORK

As a matter of fact, most accidents happen due to insufficient knowledge about how to handle an artwork but you can avoid such situation from taking place. Being one of the top moving companies in Dubai, we always ask our valued customers to label each packing box correctly so the moving crew can treat the packing box in accurate manner. You need to place a sticker mentioning the sensitivity level of your artwork and avoid any unfavorable incidents during the transition phase. The sticker helps the handler of your packing boxes to take of the artwork in right manner and deliver it securely at the destination.

ENSURE SAFETY

Now before you call in the professional moving companies in Dubai to dispatch your packed masterpieces and start dreaming about your success, you need to do one more thing. Check the packing box thoroughly to ensure that there is no chance of breakage and you may dispatch the artworks with a confidence. Look at the corners and see if they are in good conditions and also check for the tapes to make sure that they are placed firmly on the box.

5 ESSENTIAL THINGS TO DO FOR A STRESS FREE MOVE

The idea of changing apartment and starting your life into a new place might sound interesting but the process it involves would surely frighten you for a minute. After working with different customers as a Moving Company in Dubai, we realized what makes a move hectic either for individuals or when you’re moving with the whole family. So to make your move easy and stress free, here are essential things that you need to do.

INFORMING YOUR LANDLORD

Changing address and start living into a new place is not easy as you first need to look for an apartment that is ideal for your current situation. You’d definitely begin your apartment hunt to find the right place with ideal location from work once you make your mind to move on a certain date. What most people forget to do due to nervousness or excitement of moving is to forget about informing their landlord of their plan in time. Go through your lease contract and see the notice period so you can inform your current landlord in time and save yourself from any deductions in security.

FINDING MOVING COMPANY IN DUBAI

Informing your landlord is one of essential steps to make your move stress free but after that, you need to do another important thing and that is to locate a reliable moving company in Dubai. Get recommendations from family members, friends or colleagues who recently used a moving company in Dubai so you can select the best one that matches with your moving needs. Tell them about your requirements and discuss your moving date and the way you want to handle things. Before you give green signal to any of the moving company, be sure to get different moving quotes and based on those quotes pick the best one.

CANCELLING SUBSCRIPTIONS

Imagine everything goes well and you’ve successfully moved to your new apartment in Dubai but an unexpected SMS destroyed your contentment. In the hassle of packing everything up and handling things on move day, you forgot to cancel monthly service subscriptions that you were using at the previous apartment. As you still have few weeks to move in the new apartment, this is the right time to tell the service provider about disconnection.

PACKING UP EVERYTHING

When you’ve made your mind to move then giving the excuse of being busy won’t work in your favor. So if you want to keep the moving phase less tiring and stress free, you need to take some time for packing things up at least a week before your moving date. If you can’t take a full day off from the work or other commitments, try dividing the packing activities and tackle each set of items on routine basis.

CLEANING BEFORE MOVING OUT

Would you be happy to see your new apartment in poor cleaning condition? Well in the same way your apartment would be occupied with someone else and they would judge you from the cleaning condition of your place. And even if we skip this part then you still need to give back your apartment’s possession after cleaning it out according to the lease agreement. So ask the moving company in Dubai to arrange for move out cleaning for you.

4 SMART TIPS FOR PACKING YOUR HOME OFFICE

So you’ve decided to move away into a new city and start your awesome career but before that, a whole lot of items from your home office are haunting you with the packing phase right? First, you need to calm down and stay organized to handle the packing of your home office before the arrival of Movers and Packers in Dubai that you hired. We know the packing pain when you don’t have enough experience with packing stuff and the moving date is approaching on a thunderbolt’s speed.

Organize Each Item According to Size & Type

Your home office is basically your comfort zone that supported you up till now and will be your new den to think of amazing business ideas, project proposals and so many new things that are going to happen. But before that, you need to pack every important item carefully to carry it to that new place that you’ve booked already. Before you do anything, categorize everything according to shape and size so you can pack them effectively. First, you’ll be confronted with prominent furniture like tables, sofas and chairs but there are other items that might not be big in size but carry same value for you and your work. So segregate every item according to their size, shape and type for accurate labeling and organized packing.

Pack Liquid Based Items Separately

One thing that majority of people do is to stuff the packing cartons without segregating the items properly. For instance, if you’re carrying ink cartridges or inkpots and they are pressed under the pile of books, files or any important document then it may create problem for you. Chances are the bottle cracks a bit and spread ink all over the carton box. So if you don’t want to experience such discomforting instance then pack your home office items very carefully and save them from being destroyed. Arrange for a separate carton box for items that have some liquid characteristic in them or ask the packers and movers in Dubai that you’ve hired to provide special packing boxes.

Treat Electronics Carefully

Gone are days when people used to have spacious personal computers but there are enough electronic devices that carry space or have extra wires with them. So when you roll up to pack the electronic items like printers, scanners or monitors, make sure to remove their wires and pack them separately to avoid the chances of finding broken items later when you unbox the carton boxes. Arrange for plastic bags, put the wires in and place them very carefully with the electronics that you’ve put in the carton box.

Secure Books & Important Documents

Now come the most important items that you need to pack when moving into a new city i.e. books and documents. However the paper weighs less but when it is more in quantity, it may increase the load of the carton. So handle important books and documents that you intend to take with you very carefully. For making more room in a carton box, you may place them flat and pack more books, files and documents in one carton rather than placing them vertically.

HOW TO DEAL WITH STRESS WHEN MOVING HOUSE

When you’re moving house, fretting and sweating is natural by thinking of numerous perplexing thoughts about the move, the packing and the budget. It might be choosing the right Moving Company in Dubai that is making you sweaty or the thought of getting everything done as you plan but believe me, acting that way is 100% natural. As one of the professional moving companies in Dubai, we meet so many customers with such intentions running inside their heads so you first need to calm down. Here are some steps to deal with stress during your move and make the whole procedure less confusing.

Step 1: Don’t be hasty during research

You might be busy in preparing for that presentation or thinking to prepare dinner as you search best moving companies in UAE. We can understand how busy you might be but to be honest, investing some time in your hunt for a reliable moving company in Dubai will pay you off later when the moving day arrives. Be very organized and take time to review each moving company thoroughly before you select any. List down top 5 local and International Moving Companies and be sure they are what they claim to be. That’s the first step to reduce moving day stress and make your move less tiresome.

Step 2: Set things according to your budget

When we move somewhere, the first thing that will hit our mind is the budgeting phase that can’t be ignored. As a moving company in Dubai, we understand how things go out of our hands when we finally move into the new place and discover that excess amount of money has been spent on the whole move. So we’d advise you to plan your move according to your budget whether you’re moving out of UAE or starting anew in Dubai’s amazing lifestyle. Check with different Moving Companies and compare their prices so you can go with the most affordable offer.

Step 3: Use time wisely for packing

As a matter of fact, we feel overwhelmed when all the items are waving at us from every direction of the room. So what would you do when you’re all alone in the middle of furniture, groceries and upholsteries that need to be packed properly? When it comes to packing, our suggestion to every customer is that they should have a strategy for packing each and every thing in a wise way. List down items or specify them in section so you can pack all the items on specified days or time. This way, you won’t be dealing with moving day stress and can easily pack everything on time.

Step 4: Prepare for moving day

As a moving company in Dubai, we always ask our customers to segregate those items that they need on early basis from other packed items. Imagine yourself waking up the next morning and you have no idea where you put the toothpaste or the groceries which would lead towards frustration after you go through each carton box. So be wise and plan for such situations beforehand.

5 QUESTIONS TO ASK THE SURVEYOR WHEN MOVING

Are you in process of moving to a new location? You need to be very careful while choosing a Moving Company in Dubai if you don’t want to waste your money on an unprofessional mover. As you type in the query ‘moving companies in Dubai’, you’ll be amazed by the uncountable number of results the page shows but how to find the right one with real moving experience and skilled labor? To simplify the process and help you pick the right moving company in Dubai, we listed some essential questions that are enough to verify the authenticity of the company.

Question # 1: Since when are you in business?

Truth be told, there are too many Moving Companies that would claim of being a professional and you need to keep your eyes open. If they are professionals, they’d be having a work history and would proudly answer this question. But if they’re newly organized moving company in Dubai with an outsourced moving staff and no experience, you better continue your search for the professional movers in Dubai

Question # 2: Is your staff trained enough to handle my furniture?

Usually when we speak with our customers, they’re more inclined to hire trained staff that can handle both delicate as well as heavy furniture items. The reason is, you’re investing a considerable amount on your move and you wouldn’t want any novice to handle your precious furniture with such carelessness that you end up seeing a broken item. So make sure who will be handling your fixtures and upholsteries on the moving day.

Question # 3: Where are you guys located?

Due to the ease of setting up moving companies in Dubai, you’d find many businesses claiming to be the professionals. We’d suggest, from our moving experience, to stay away from such companies as they’re not reliable. Suppose, if you have an issue with moving procedure, where would you find them? As a professional moving company, it should have a real address where customers can reach them and fix their issues in person rather than over a phone call.

Question # 4: How will you move my stuff?

Now this is one essential question that you should must ask the surveyor before giving them charge to shift your valuables. Ask what process your stuff will go through during the moving procedure and how they guarantee the safety of your furniture? As a professional moving company in Dubai, we always explain our customers how we will be proceeding with their furniture and where we want their cooperation during the moving process.

Question # 5: What transportation options do you have?

No matter it’s your first time or you have a moving experience before during your stay at Dubai, this question is a must to ask. A good practice, on behalf of moving companies, is to secure each moving item with proper transportation medium. The movers should be having certified trucks (or any other transportation medium) to keep your furniture safe during the transition from your current location to the new address. If the company is using an open truck, that mostly happens in outsourced cases, you need to step back and continue your hunt for a professional moving company in Dubai.

5 THINGS YOU’LL SEE ONLY IN DUBAI (DURING DECEMBER)

Over the decades, Dubai has been a center of attraction to many people due to various reasons. Some visit Dubai for business purposes, others spend some quality time with their family and there are many with an ambition to settle in this amazing emirate of UAE. As an active Movers in Dubai, we often encounter with people having interesting stories about their experience in Dubai that refreshes our perspective about this beautiful emirate. Yet, there are those who are making their first visit to Dubai, moving in Dubai or still unaware of Dubai’s fascinating culture. As December is here and the Christmas is nearing, we thought to dedicate this post for things you’ll see only in Dubai (Specifically in the month of December).

Myriad of Languages:

Dubai is enriched with cultural diversity and that’s one of its beauties and you’ll encounter this language diversity in Dubai quite often. Sharing her experience in Dubai’s busiest lifestyle, We Move’s manager, Miss Fabina Nazeer states she learnt 3 different languages after moving into Dubai from her homeland. “I’m fluent in Hindi and English but after settling into Dubai, I found Arabic, Urdu and Filipino quite interesting. I just love the city and different people residing here.” And this language diversity increases during December as new expats make their way to this land either for long term residence or for spending their holidays.

Futuristic Architectural Work:

If you’re visiting Dubai after a long time, you’ll fall in love with Dubai Canal that’s been recently inaugurated. Dubai has a reputation for creating skyscraping building and amazingly constructed theme parks but the killing sunlight and boiling temperature proves a hurdle for many to witness these amazing places. To your relief, December eliminates this problem when temperature is mostly ‘human-friendly’ and allows you to explore these beautiful places. From our experience of professional moving service, we highly recommend these points of interests like Jumeirah Golf Estates, Museum of the Future, Aqua Venture Waterpark and Dubai Miracle Garden that will really refresh your mood and let you spend some memorable time with your family.

Seaside Evening Walk:

As movers in Dubai, we observed that beaches attract so many people to enjoy the after-work hours and proves an interesting place for many. You probably visited Jumeirah several times before but this time of the year has something special to offer. If you’re missing home, want to have some time with your spouse or in need of a calm feeling, visit Jumeirah beach in the evening when the temperature is moderate. You’ll love the floating waves and water’s sound increasing and decreasing in a variable frequency. The sunset, mild cold air in fact the whole atmosphere refreshes one’s mood and bring a new urge for life.

Floating Vehicles on the Road:

Apart from gigantic buildings, amazing shopping malls and unique lifestyle, Dubai is also famous for its traffic system. You might be missing Italy’s streets or fond of USA’s clean roads but if you’re an expat in Dubai, you should really check this out. Stand at the corner or get a top view of Sheikh Zayed road and you’ll be fascinated by the floating vehicles of every size and shape. Do it in evening when offices are closing and people are rushing back to their homes. The twinkling headlights and constant vehicle speed depict nature’s flow in them this plethora of cars, trucks and other vehicles is one of the things you’ll see only in Dubai with such uniformity and rhythm.

Amazing Night Life:

As the New Year is approaching after Christmas, you’ll not find yourself feeling bored if you’re in Dubai. Dubai never gets you bored with multiple things happening each day and that’s the best part of this place. If you’re fed up from shopping malls or don’t want to visit theme parks for some time, musical concerts and entertainment shows can be a great way to revive the fun element in your life. Shake your legs on Hip Hop beats in Atelier M, experience Sami Yusuf’s soothing voice or witness roaring cars at Meydan Racecourse during your stay in Dubai in December.

3 THINGS SUCCESSFUL INTERNATIONAL MOVING COMPANIES DO

IAM has been serving moving industry from years with useful insight reports, seminars and presentations. If you’re in moving industry, you would always find something interesting in each event they organize. In a recent international event held at New Orleans on October 24, 2016, we got the opportunity to meet IAM’s President Mr. Terry R. Head the man behind IAM’s success and witnessed his modest yet witty personality. Behind his humble behavior and mildly sarcastic nature, you’ll find a vast sea of knowledge having different tips for International Moving Companies and managers that are engaged into moving business.

Representing We Move, Mr. Taarek Javeeid (General Manager We Move) attended the 54th IAM Annual Meeting and he was quite “moved” from everyone’s friendly behavior and the tendency to share few words about their business experiences. We observed few things from this mega event in moving industry that are essential to adopt for all international moving companies in order to grow big and improve service quality. And here they are!

ADOPT NETWORKING HABIT:

What we learned from this amazing event, held by International Association of Movers (IAM), is that networking is one of your strongest arsenals to boost your business reach across the globe. Make carrying visiting cards with you a permanent habit so when you meet someone, you’d have something to build a communication bridge on the go. It might look a formal activity that we often do in professional life but mark my words it would pay you off in surprising way as it did in our case and helped us to grow internationally.

KEEP AN EYE ON FUTURE CHANGES:

For success, and new moving projects of course, you need to be able to see where the industry is going? What major changes are going to hit the moving industry and what you can do to turn it into an opportunity beforehand? And events like 54th IAM Annual Meeting are like your best option to make future predictions about your moving company. The main event was full of such opportunities where we learned so many new trends that are influencing the moving industry at international level.

LEARN ABOUT DIFFERENT BUSINESS CULTURES:

It’s true that during working hours, most moving executives rely on phone calls and emails but that’s not sufficient to learn what other businesses are doing in their workspace (or warehouse)? During the 54th IAM Annual Meeting, we met so many great people from moving industry and shared their knowledge and business experiences in odd situations. And it really helped us to plan our strategy in a similar situation. If you want to be in successful International Moving Companies, you need to reach out likeminded people and see how they handle things in different situations.

IS THIS THE RIGHT TIME TO MOVE INTO DUBAI?

Living into a metropolis like Dubai is no lesser than a dream lifestyle but the only concern many people have in mind is the skyscraping rent that makes it a bit expensive to live into Dubai. If increasing property rent is your concern then you need to read this post till end. In a recent report, Asteco revealed that landlords are willing to lower down the rents as tenants are in search of cheaper accommodations. With this rental relaxation, just get in touch with a professional Moving Company in Dubai and plan your move to live your dream lifestyle.
What Does Asteco Q3 Report Says?
Asteco is a leading real estate service company that monitors Middle East’s real estate market and buyer’s behavior throughout the year. In its 3rd report for the year 2016, it has been observed that areas like Jumeirah Village Circle and Dubai Sports City have seen an overall 2%-3% increase in rents and an even bigger percentage of 5% can be witnessed in Business Bay area. But instead of compromising on these values, tenants have started to find cheaper accommodations in different parts of Dubai.
What Can I Do?
This sudden change in tenant’s behavior is forcing landlords to lower down the rent bar for retaining existing tenants and saving money on maintenance and refurbishment before handing over keys to new renters. And the possibility to living into Dubai at a lower rental cost gave Moving Companies a green signal to stay proactive. This is because makes it evident that if you rent an apartment in Dubai, you will be saving a significant amount from rent. Not only on residential properties, you can even save a specific amount of money on commercial properties and pay less for continuing your business activities.
So if you’re interested to relocate with your family, shift your workforce or initiate a new business in Dubai, this might be the right time to make your move. Get in touch with a moving company in Dubai to obtain moving costs and schedules and start anew in Dubai’s land of opportunity.
