Science Behind Our COVID Safe Packing

Palletised removals for a safer move overseas. Our shrinkwrap packing stops the handling of individual items to ensure a Zero Touch delivery. This also reduces the risks of damage and improves the security of your goods.

Pallets being measured

Measured Exactly for Accurate Billing

Size does matter! International moving costs are determined by the total volume of your move.
Each pallet is measured exactly after packing to ensure clear and accurate billing for your move abroad.

Unique COVID Safe Packing

Our packing procedures offer a COVID-safe method of shipping your belongings to Qatar, protecting your goods from unnecessary handling and isolating them from the outside world until arrival at your new door.

Rather than simply shipping items loosely in a container, we combine the contents of your move onto individual pallets and shrink-wrap each pallet to prevent any handling of individual items and to provide a shield against the outside world.
