Packing Considerations

Follow our guide and recommendations on how to pack your items for safe shipping

Box Shipping | Sherpr


When it comes to packing, the sturdier the suitcase the better – this goes for hard or soft cases. You’ll need to tuck in all straps, and if that’s not possible tape them down or remove them.  Next, put your labels in a plastic sleeve and attach this securely to the suitcase with cable ties. Lastly, make sure you leave your suitcase unlocked in case customs or the courier need to verify the contents.  

Unfortunately we don’t accept rucksacks and holdalls and we don’t recommend using designer luggage for shipping.

International Removals | Sherpr


For shipping boxes, choose a double walled box or higher and wrap fragile items individually, then cushion them with bubble wrap or something similar. If you can, spread your heavier items between boxes and include a copy of your label in the box. This helps with verification.

  • Relocation

    With the third busiest airport in the world and a huge expat community, relocating to the UAE is a popular choice. Aside from the obvious 365 days of sun and sprawling golden beaches, there are plenty of other reasons to make the move. English is widely spoken, the landscapes are varied, and the culture is thriving.  

    If you’re planning on moving to the UAE we can help. All we need from you is a short description of the items you’re planning on taking and your reason for moving (for customs purposes). Then you’ll need to pack your items in walled boxes and sturdy suitcases. We’ll do the rest.

    If you are a resident who is returning to the UAE to live, you will need to provide a copy of your passport and your Residence (Emirates ID) or Employment Visa.

  • Students

    Up routing and studying couldn’t be more exciting, however, moving your personal items can be a drag. Here at Sherpr, we are made up of people that have travelled the world studying so we know the pain points of moving items to and from different countries. Let us take care of the shipping whilst you travel hands free.
