Relocation firms are a one-stop solution to the moving needs of individuals, families and companies. When moving to the UAE for work or just to explore a different area of the world, expats may hit a few bumps in the road. Relocation businesses offer a full suite of services from visas and pre-departure orientation to neighbourhood orientation, home-finding services, and lease negotiation as well as school selection. Removals companies, on the other hand, focus their services on just the transporting of goods.

Many expats may handle a move themselves, thinking that it's a waste of money to go through a company, but those that invest in the assistance will have a much smoother ride when moving to the UAE.

Here is a selection of relocation companies that can help make your move to the UAE (Dubai, Abu Dhabi or one of the other Emirates) easier.
