Everything you need to know about moving from Qatar

Moving from Qatar? It must be a bitter-sweet moment to leave the place you have called home for some time but still excited about new beginnings.

We are sure you have a lot of unanswered questions about international moving and we have compiled a short guide to help you plan your relocation to your new country of residence.

Where can I find an international moving company?

ServiceMarket offers you an easy way of finding a reliable international mover in Doha by simply visiting the website and requesting quotations from verified companies. You can request up to five quotes and the ServiceMarket team will be at hand to assist you with any queries and make your moving process smoother.

How do I know which is the right company to choose?

The ServiceMarket site offers you a special feature that enables you to filter the service providers based on your needs, budget and preferences. The filter categories include price, customer ratings and promotional packages. We recommend that you always read other customer reviews to help you make a decision.

What determines the pricing?

Apart from the company’s pricing policy, other factors that determine your costs include the destination, the quantity of the goods being shipped, storage facilities required if any and the time when you need to move.

Will the moving company assist me in packing my stuff?

Yes. There are certain specific standards of international moving packaging that need to be adhered to and the mover will do this for you. It is important to sort your belongings to ensure that you keep your valuables and necessities with you as shipping can take long periods.

How long will it take to relocate internationally?

This depends on a lot of factors including final destination, shipping schedule as well as customs clearance in the new location. It is important to plan early too to avoid inconveniences and also to ensure that you know the customs rules of your new country.

What else should I know?

It is important to write up your inventory list before shipping and to label all your boxes and packages - the moving company should do this for you but just in case you should keep your own list too. Also, remember that international moving can be expensive; sort out what you do not need to ship to lower your budget.

All said and done, teary goodbyes, farewell parties, pictures, videos and mementos will help you feel better about leaving this beloved country.
