Settling into a new home comes with challenges, but knowing what to expect is half the battle. Here we discuss how to shift to a new home easily.
First and foremost, before you can get yourself moved into a property, you will need to check if you require a moving-in permit. Most communities and building owners require you to fill out a move-in/ move-out form and provide the details of your moving company. The process and documents you will need to provide can vary, but as it can take up to 5 working days to receive your permit, you should check the process in advance.
2. Choose wisely
There’s a long list of moving companies , so do your homework. Check online for recommendations, get the lowdown from those who’ve been through the process and examine reviews before getting in touch for a home survey.
3. Credentials check
A valid trade licence and insurance are non-negotiables. It’s also essential that the staff aren’t outsourced, as building security will usually ask to see Emirates IDs before allowing access.
4. Cost it out
Great movers aren’t cheap, and cheap movers (generally speaking) aren’t great. Most companies offer online quotes, therefore compare prices. That said, for moves larger than a one-bedroom apartment, it’s always best to get your home surveyed to get an accurate price.
