There is no doubt about it moving to a new country can be overwhelming.

More often than not we arrive with a huge container but no extended family or support network.  Family members can obviously never be replaced but making new friends can be done (in time) as long as you join in with activities whether it be through work, school or hobbies.  However, there are often times where you need that extra support and would like to meet people who are in a similar situation to you whether it be to meet families with twins or children with Special Needs.  Maybe you are going through a divorce and need to speak to other people going through the same thing – Dubai is full of people with initiative who have set up some really useful groups that can help you through the ups and down of life in Dubai.

Moving Tips 2When moving always insure your goods  to cover all inherent risks as accidents do happen and some items may be lost or damaged during shipment.  Goods can be damaged for example during customs inspection or from heat and damp.

It also important to insure your items as the Moving Company does not know how many times your items have been moved or how stable they are it is only you who knows this so you need to insure your items.

messy-wardrobeAs the Festive Season fast approaches many expat families in Dubai will be preparing to move back to their own countries or may simply be taking this time to have a mass clear-out before the visitors (and Santa!) arrive.

If you have clothes, toys & books that are in good condition but you no longer require there is a charity in Dubai that is collecting these items to sell at the Dubai Flea Market this December in Zabeel Park.  The proceed from these sales will go towards supporting a charity project in the Philippines that is building a library and supporting a feeding and gift giving program.
