Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Filipinos moving in from their country to Dubai find themselves faced with a lot of problems. First they have to obtain working permits and fix legal issues. Then, they have to familiarize themselves with the new culture, adjust to new work atmosphere, and deal with new faces and new people. Even before they go to their respective Dubai areas, they have to make sure that they have a place where they can stay and move in.

Some Filipinos choose to deal with relocation issues just after they set foot on Dubai (typical “bahala na” attitude) and as a result, they have to shed extra amounts of money in renting rooms or checking in at hotels. Other Filipinos are wiser. Instead of dealing with relocation issues themselves, they hire the services of relocation companies so that they won’t have to worry about their residence once they move in to Dubai.

But there are numerous instances of Filipino residential movers being victimized by scammers, and they end up cleaning more troubles instead. To avoid this, it’s very crucial that movers pick a credible and reliable relocation company. Most would rely on suggestions and referrals from friends, families, and employers. It’s perfectly fine to just follow personal advice, but the best outcomes are often produced by informed decisions. Therefore, it’s most agreeable if movers will background-check and research on their prospective relocation companies first. For one, they can assess and determine the capacity of each relocation companies. Second, movers can compare the kind and price of each company’s services. And lastly, they can be assured that their money won’t be wasted on scammers and fraud movers.

Here are 5 tips that will lead you to the right movers.

5 TIPS for Finding the Right Movers.

Validate their Business Registration

Before signing up for their services, you must make sure that the relocation company is legally registered to conduct business both in the Philippines and in Dubai. Contact anyone of your friends or close acquaintances to call up the concerned government agency in Dubai, and ask them to validate the relocation company’s business registry. If possible, you can also ask help from your employers. This way, you can avoid the risk of being victimized by scammers.

Compare their experiences

Find companies who have long-standing experience with relocation service. As much as possible, find companies who have successfully worked with others from the same area you’ll be moving into. If not, find someone who has at least a varied portfolio because this is a great way to assess their capability in moving, packing and transporting your belongings. Client referrals tell a lot about the kind of work a relocation company provides. Even if they had long list of clients or vast collection of case studies, if their past clients are not very eager to refer them to other clients, you might as well start your search for another relocation company.

Verify their International branches and connections

Most probably, relocation companies with international branches can provide more satisfactory results than those who doesn’t. Having international branches means more knowledge about the field or area, ready supply of transportation facilities and resources, and established connections that will aid in their operations. Even if there are problems that would arise during your move, you can be sure that they have international partners ready to back up and stand on their behalf if they can’t work out the problems on their own.

Track their Online Reputation

Tracking a relocation company’s reputation can be done online. Type in the name of the company you're considering and connect both positive and negative adjectives to their names (ex. abc company good vs. abc company sucks)

Don’t just settle for information on their website, because you wouldn’t find anything on it except promotions and advertisements. Move out and find other testimonials and stories on other sites. Since they want to attract more clients, relocation companies would probably put in only the positive reviews and testimonials on their website. More than press releases and ad-pages, look for blogs and off-site article reviews. This way, you can truly validate if all past clients are really happy with the services delivered, or if not, whether the satisfied clients outnumbers the dissatisfied ones.

Compare their professional fees

Of course, the price of their service is an important factor for choosing the right relocation company. Don't settle on one provider just because they have the lowest rate because you might get substandard or poor quality of service in the end. Sometimes, those who have the highest fees aren't also the best;they just invest large money on advertisements and are charging high rates because of their ad-gained popularity.

When consulting with moving companies, don't be afraid to ask them right away about their operational fees. As much as possible, obtain a detailed price breakdown. Sometimes, other companies deceive their clients, only bringing out miscellaneous and additional fees after the services have been rendered.

Put in a ready list of relocation companies and apply this steps for each of them. Researching and looking for relocation companies might seem too easy, but you will be surprised if you’ll actually start working on it. It’s actually a bit hard and exhausting, especially when you try to filter out promotions and advertisements from pure facts. But if you’ll consider the headaches and stress it will save you if you contact a reliable relocation company, you wouldn’t really mind doing the extra research.
