Our 4 best MoveCube® packing tips for overseas moves

Securely packing your possessions is essential for international moves to Kuwait. We recommend hiring a professional packing service to ease stress. Otherwise, give yourself plenty of time and follow our experts' best tips below. For more in-depth advice, read our How to load a MoveCube® and How to pack our boxes resources.

 

one

Declutter your home:

Walk from room to room, making a detailed list of what you will and won't need to take. For example, you’ll have little use for thick winter coats in the sweltering Kuwaiti heat! Plus, the fewer belongings you move, the cheaper it will be.

Sell your unwanted goods on auction sites like eBay and Facebook Marketplace and take everything else to charity shops, recycling centres and your local tip.

two

Be cautious with delicate items:

Seal the base of your box with three layers of overlapping parcel tape. Use bubble wrap on everything and three layers on fragile goods. Place heavy effects at the bottom and lighter things above.

Create more space inside the MoveCube® by disassembling as much furniture as possible. Then, cover everything with removal blankets to prevent them from rubbing together during the removals journey to Kuwait.

three

Ensure our movers have a place to park:

Enjoy a successful MoveCube® loading day by purchasing any required parking tickets or permits in advance. Our driver must be able to park twenty metres or less from the entrance to your door.

It's your responsibility to load the MoveCube®. Why not ask your friends to help? You can borrow a trolly from us to move containers, and our driver will offer removals tips. However, they must keep the vehicle within eyesight.

four

Load the MoveCube® with care:

Use the Starter Pack's plastic floor sheets to determine how much furniture and boxes fit inside the MoveCube®. Place heavy goods like sofas and wooden cabinets along the bottom, then carefully slot in lighter things above them — like a fun game of Tetris!

Only fill gaps with solid containers. Loose items will likely break easily and could damage the rest of your removals shipment.

An amazing removals service from start to finish. Everything was explained in detail, there were no hidden charges, and I paid exactly what I was quoted. All the staff I spoke to over the phone were super friendly and helpful. The delivery driver was so lovely and made unloading a dream. I would definitely recommend Seven Seas Worldwide to anyone. Everything arrived as it was packed with no damage at all.

Moving to Kuwait: everything you need to know

Al Tijaria Tower, Kuwait

 

In Kuwait's culture, Islamic traditions, such as hospitality and respecting religious practices, are highly regarded. Modernisation is a priority, and the importance of family is evident in close-knit communities. So, if you're hoping for a forward-thinking and family-orientated place to raise kids or retire in a sunny climate, the Pearl of the Gulf could be for you. But before you rush to the airport, check out our essential relocation facts:

Types of Kuwait visas: to live and work in Kuwait, a private business or Kuwaiti government organisation must sponsor you. Visit the State of Kuwait Ministry of Interior website to apply for a three-month eVisa and learn more.

Job opportunities: Kuwait has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the world at just 2.48%. Expats with in-demand skills stand a good chance of securing a role, although often only temporary jobs. The country’s biggest industries include oil, manufacturing, real estate and finance.

Healthcare: free medical services are available for all Kuwaiti citizens and residents. Expats can enjoy the same level of treatment via public insurance schemes, but private healthcare may provide quicker access.

Education: Kuwait led the way for literacy among Arab states in 2010. Schooling is compulsory for all students aged six to fourteen. Well-regarded universities include Kuwait University and Arab Open University.

Lifestyle: while the warm weather and tax-free incomes might be the main draw, the welcoming people, safe streets and modern amenities add to the appeal. From upscale shopping malls and outdoor activities to folk arts and delicious cuisine, there's plenty for expats to enjoy.

Moving home checklist

Although our international removal services make moving furniture and personal effects easy, use this helpful checklist to prepare for the big move itself: 

  • Gather your paperwork: keep important documents, such as identification, marriage certificates and proof of address, nearby for quick access.
  • Apply for a Kuwait visa: research the most applicable visa for your and your family's needs, then apply on the Kuwaiti Government website and wait for approval.
  • Arrange accommodation: either rent or sell your current home and then find accomodation in Kuwait. Renting is an excellent way to acclimatise to life in a new country before making a big purchase like a home.
  • Book Kuwait shipping: grab a no-obligation free removals quote on our website, then choose a date so our expert movers can bring as many MoveCubes® as needed to your door.
  • Arrange travel: book your flights to Kuwait ahead of your removals shipment's arrival so you can settle into your new home.
  • Sort your finances: inform your bank you're moving abroad and withdraw some Kuwaiti dinar to cover emergencies and travel purchases.
  • Speak to a doctor: ask for a three-month supply of any current prescriptions, giving you time to arrange a new healthcare practitioner in Kuwait.
  • Pet relocation: ensure your furry buddies have up-to-date health certificates and vaccinations and a safe pet carrier. You must also obtain a pet import permit and have your pet implanted with an international standard (ISO) microchip.
  • Have a declutter: only take to Kuwait what you need. After all, the less you move, the cheaper it will be. Donate, sell and recycle everything you’re leaving behind.
  • Pack your removals shipment: pack all loose belongings into sturdy cardboard boxes. Then, move all containers and furniture as close to your building's entrance as possible before our movers arrives.
  • Settle into your new home: when your removals shipment docks in Kuwait, your appointed agent will help you clear customs. Finally, take the MoveCube® to your new home, unload it, dispose of it, and relax!
