I will be moving out soon (just in time for the summer - oh joy!) with my wife and baby to take up a new job. I'm currently getting quotes for shipping our personal effects - the contents of a one-bedroom flat, not a great deal of furniture - from London to Dubai.
I wonder if anyone on the forum has a view of total relocation costs - i.e. shipping our stuff, flights for two adults and an infant, plus setting-up costs (buying white goods and other fixtures, putting down utilities deposits etc) once we're there. My company is offering GBP5K to cover all these costs and I don't think this will be enough. I'm not counting upfront rental costs in this.
I'd be interested in other people's experiences and opinions, especially any good shipping company recommendations.
