4 expert MoveCube® loading tips

Securely packing your belongings is essential for international removals to Qatar. We recommend hiring a professional packing service to ease some stress. Otherwise, set aside lots of time and follow our removals experts' 4 top tips below. For further advice, check out How to load a MoveCube® and How to pack our boxes.



Have a declutter:

Walk from room to room in your home and make a detailed list of what you will and won't be shipping to Qatar. For example, will you have use for thick winter coats in the sweltering Qatari heat? Plus, the fewer things you send, the more affordable it will be.

Sell whatever's in good condition on online auction sites like eBay and Facebook Marketplace. Take whatever remains to charity shops, recycling centres and your local tip.


Treat delicate items carefully:

Seal your removals box's base using three layers of overlapping parcel tape. Repeat at the top once full. Use bubble wrap on every item and several layers for fragile goods. Place your heaviest effects at the bottom and lighter things above and away from the sides.

Create extra space inside the MoveCube® removals container by disassembling applicable furniture. Then, cover everything in removal blankets to stop them rubbing together during the long journey to Qatar.


Buy parking tickets:

Enjoy a smooth MoveCube® loading day by purchasing necessary parking tickets or permits in advance. Doing so ensures our movers can park twenty metres or less from the entrance to your home.

It's your responsibility to load the MoveCube(s)®, so why not ask friends and family for some help? We can loan you a trolly to move removals containers but for security, our driver must always keep the vehicle in eyesight.


Carefully load the MoveCube®:

Use your Starter Pack's floor sheets to determine how much will fit inside the MoveCube® removals pod before loading day. Put heavy goods like sofas and tables at the bottom, then carefully slot in lighter things above and around them — just like a fun game of Tetris!

Only fill gaps with solid containers. Loose items could break easily and could damage the rest of your belongings.

We moved across the world and used Seven Seas Worldwide to transport a Large MoveCube® of our belongings. It went seamlessly. Our empty MoveCube® arrived within two weeks of ordering, and two months later, it arrived at our new home. Ray, who delivered our full MoveCube®, was helpful and made the unpacking much easier. Their customer service team were also helpful and knowledgeably answered even my most obscure questions. I would recommend Seven Seas Worldwide if you're looking to move!



Moving to Qatar: everything you need to know

Balcony overlooking the sea, Qatar


In Qatar culture, family is highly regarded, with relatives often living together in close-knit communities. The Islamic religion plays a central role in daily life, and expats account for around 85% of the total population. So, if you're hoping for a multicultural atmosphere, a safe and respectful place to raise kids and endless sunshine, the State of Qatar is for you.

But before dashing to the airport, check out our essential Qatar moving facts:

Types of Qatar visas: expats wishing to work in Qatar need a temporary residence visa, which you can renew yearly. To apply for permanent residency, you must have lived in Qatar for twenty years, earn at least QAR20,000, have a clean criminal record, and good knowledge of Arabic.

Job opportunities: Qatar's economy is fast-growing. Finding a job should be easy, as the unemployment rate is only 0.1%. In-demand sectors include construction, tourism, healthcare, media and oil and petroleum engineers.

Healthcare: Qatar is one of the few countries worldwide that provides free universal healthcare for all its residents. The only required payment is a health card for QAR100 (£20).

Education: government schools run from ages 6 to 18 and are generally free for residents, but the curriculum is in Arabic. Options for expat children include international private schools and homeschooling. Well-regarded universities include Qatar University and the University of Doha for Science and Technology.

Lifestyle: while the hot weather in Qatar might be the primary draw, the multicultural atmosphere, safe streets, stunning scenery and colourful festivals add to the appeal. From relaxing on golden beaches to devouring delicious street food, there's plenty for expats to enjoy.



International moving checklist

Although our international removals service makes shipping household goods to Qatar easy, use this handy checklist to prepare for the big move itself:

  • Gather your paperwork: keep all important documents, such as ID and birth and marriage certificates, nearby for quick access.
  • Apply for a Qatar visa: research the best Qatari visa for you and your family's needs, then apply and await approval.
  • Arrange accommodation in Qatar: sell or rent your current house and choose whether to rent or buy in Qatar. Renting is an excellent chance to acclimatise before making a big purchase like a house.
  • Book international removal services: grab an instant free removals quote on our website, then choose a date so we can bring a MoveCube® or MoveCubes® to your door.
  • Arrange travel: book your flights to Qatar ahead of your removals shipment's arrival so you can settle into your new house.
  • Sort your finances: inform your bank you're leaving and withdraw some Qatari Riyal to cover emergencies or last-minute purchases.
  • Speak to a doctor: request a three-month supply of any current prescriptions, giving you time to arrange new healthcare once in Qatar.
  • Book pet relocation services: ensure your four-legged friends have valid health certificates, microchips, vaccinations and a safe pet carrier. Your pet must be over three months old and requires a pet permit to enter Qatar.
  • Declutter your house: only send what you'll need in Qatar. After all, the less you take, the cheaper the removal will be. Donate, sell or recycle everything else.
  • Pack your removals shipment: place all loose possessions into sturdy shipping boxes. Move all containers, baggage and furniture close to your building's entrance before our driver arrives for a successful removals day.
  • Settle into your new home: when your removals shipment docks in Qatar, your appointed agent will assist with customs clearance. Then, take the International MoveCube® container to your house, unload it, dispose of it, and start exploring your exciting new world!
