Default Would like to hear any ideas on moving furniture to Saudi from Uk!

Hi to all & thanks for replies so far.

The wife & I would like to take our furniture from UK to Riyahd if we move, does anyone have experience of a move and is it a good idea to do it?

Thanks

I used "city moving" to take a container from London to the UAE. I organised seperate marine insurance through Locktons. Worked for me and was the cheapest solution.

Hi, I have had quotes for the same UK to KSA move.

I expect to do the move in 4 weeks or so.

What I have been told is that it takes 4-6 weeks via sea freight, 2-3 weeks air freight (at higher cost of course).

All cargo is itemised and insured (check this point) so you should be protected against losses in transit.

Company is paying for me so I'll take as much as I need or cannot get rid of in the UK.

Hope this helps ?
