If you’ve just moved over to Dubai, you may be wondering if it’s cheaper to ship your furniture from overseas or to start over from scratch. Francis Morgan of The Auction House Dubai offers his advice.
It’s definitely more cost-effective to buy your furniture again in Dubai, as shipping from your home country will be surprisingly costly. This is one of the world’s most transient cities, making it very easy to buy affordable second-hand furniture as people leave. Head down to The Auction House, as you can buy at the price you want on both new and old furniture, with everything checked and appraised before it reaches the auction. It’s also worth joining community Facebook pages where items are regularly advertised for sale.’
