KAE International Movers: De verhuisspecialist voor de Griekse eilanden!

International Movers to the Greek Islands

Met geweldige cultuur, eindeloze stranden, outdoor activiteiten, een heerlijke keuken en een perfect klimaat zijn de Griekse eilanden de ultieme ontsnapping en de perfecte locatie voor een tweede (vakantie) huis.

Elk van de Griekse eilanden heeft zijn eigen onderscheidende en unieke culturele en topografische identiteit. De (antieke) geschiedenis, het prachtige landschap, de kristalheldere zee en de overvloedige zonneschijn dragen bij aan het ultieme geluk van vele mensen die besluiten naar een Grieks eiland te verhuizen. Wist je trouwens dat het er meer dan 2.000 Griekse eilanden zijn?!

Verhuizen naar de Griekse eilanden

Of je nu een tweede huis wilt kopen voor de vakantie of dat je besluit om (na je pensioen) voor langere tijd in Griekenland te verblijven, de Griekse eilanden zijn ideaal.

De architectuur van de Griekse eilanden

Het unieke landschap van de Griekse eilanden heeft bijgedragen aan hun beroemde architectuur. Op veel eilanden zie je kasteelsteden die behoren tot de bloeiende middeleeuwen, een tijd waarin de lokale bevolking bang was voor piraten. Daar kom je ook de typische Venetiaanse huizen tegen met twee verdiepingen die naast elkaar zijn gebouwd. Maar er zijn ook grote forten en andere middeleeuwse bouwwerken. Bezoekers van de traditionele Cycladische dorpjes zijn bekend met het slenteren door nauwe steegjes en straatjes, het lijkt wel een labyrint!

De talrijke geplaveide straatjes met de witgekalkte gevels en de prachtige huizen onder de Egeïsche zon vormen unieke beelden en een paradijselijk bestaan.

Verhuizen op de Griekse eilanden

De prachtige architectuur van de Griekse eilanden gaat echter ook gepaard met enkele uitdagingen. Veel huizen zijn moeilijk toegankelijk. Er zijn vaak steile hellingen, smalle wegen en kleine straatjes. Het wegennetwerk op de Griekse eilanden is vaak in slechte staat. Wist je trouwens dat op sommige Griekse eilanden zelfs geen auto’s zijn toegestaan? Op Hydra en Spetses zijn vrachtwagens en alle andere gemotoriseerde voertuigen verboden!

Om je inboedel en dierbare bezittingen naar de Griekse eilanden te vervoeren, kies je daarom het beste voor een lokaal bedrijf met kennis van zaken op de Griekse eilanden.

Door de slechte staat van de Griekse wegen kunnen vrachtwagens (ook containerwagens) sommige huizen niet goed bereiken. Om die reden werken we met shuttle wagens, kleinere voertuigen die daadwerkelijk tot aan de deur en tot in de nieuwe woning kunnen leveren.

KAE International Movers: The Greek Islands Specialist

With amazing culture, endless beaches, outdoor activities and perfect weather, not to mention the healthy Mediterranean food, the Greek islands are offering the ultimate escape and perfect location for a second home.

Each of the Greek islands has its own distinguished and unique cultural and topographical identity. Its (ancient) culture, beautiful scenery of crystal clear waters and non-stop sunshine is what contributes to the everlasting happiness for people who decide to move to one of the Greek islands. Did you know that there are over 2,000 of them?!

Moving to the Greek islands

There can be several reasons to be moving to the Greek islands. Most people are from European countries who want to buy a second home to spend their vacations in Greece or to get prepared to live during some periods of their life in Greece.

Greek islands architecture

The unique physical landscape of the Greek islands has contributed to the famous Greek islands’ architecture. Most islands have beautiful castle-towns that belong to the flourishing medieval years, at a time where the locals lived in fear, from the pirates’ invasions. There you will see the typical two-story Venetian houses built one next to the other, fortresses and other medieval structures. A beautiful and worldwide famous sample is Little Venice in Mykonos. Visitors strolling through the traditional Cycladic villages are often given the impression of a labyrinth.

The numerous cobbled streets with the whitewashed facades and the different sized houses shining under the Aegean sun, compose unique images.

Greek island Removals

The beautiful Greek islands architecture can come with challenges. Many properties on the Greek islands are difficult to access – steep ascents, narrow roads and tiny lanes are very common. The roads on the Greek islands are often in bad condition and narrow. Did you know that some Greek islands do not even allow cars? Hydra and Spetses for instance, have banned trucks and vehicles all together!

To transport your household and previous family items to the Greek islands, choose for local specialists who know the industry and have worked with the Greek islands for many years.

The importance of using a removal company with local expertise

Kae International movers has years of experience in dealing with the Greek islands challenges and is well-equipped to access any property. Our teams not only are familiar with the logistics and road networks on the islands, they are also specialist in the ferry network connections, ferry boat transportation and local customs.

Due to the condition of the roads, trucks (including container trucks) often cannot easily reach the properties. For that reason, we work with shuttle vehicles so that we can actually deliver at the door and all the way into the new home.

Why KAE International Movers for the Greek islands and mainland Greece?

If you are ready to transport your personal goods and follow your dream into Greece, then you need to be speaking to our international team of specialists. It may be that you might be permanently moving to the Greek islands or simply going to your vacation home for a prolonged holiday, KAE international movers will assist you at every point of the journey.

From tiny villages to homes on the edges of cliffs, from remote villa’s to historic town or city houses, they’ve seen it all. Some of the Greek island towns are very built-up, and specialist skills are again required due to the density of the housing and the difficulty involved in safely transporting fragile possessions inside the homes.

Moving from the UAE to Greece and vice versa

International Movers from the UAE to Greece and vice versa

Are you thinking about moving from the UAE to Greece or maybe from Greece to Dubai or Abu Dhabi? Whether you are moving from any of the UAE to Greece or the other way around, we have got your needs covered. In this post we discuss several important topics to take into consideration when moving from the UAE to Greece and vice versa!

Interview with our local expert Abhilash Nair in Dubai

For professional expert advice, we spoke with our local partner Abhilash Nair based in Dubai, about international movers to the UAE. Abhilash covers the relocation needs for the UAE, Oman, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and India. We talked about moving from Dubai to Greece and moving from Abu Dhabi to Greece.

Q: Abhilash, what is in your opinion the most important thing to take into consideration when moving to the UAE?

‘UAE is one of the most attractive places in the world today to work and live with family and one of the happiest and safest country as documented in many places. As in any other country, I would advise anyone to do their research before coming here. These are my tips:

  • You must try to and secure a job before moving or landing into the country or planning to move to the UAE.
  • You should bargain on a good salary and related benefits as it varies drastically from company to company / institutions you pick up to work or join.
  • I believe that accommodation is very important. You should stay in the city and be prepared to pay more, or you can decide to find something much cheaper if you plan to drive 25-30 minutes.
  • Make sure getting your tenancy contract in place correctly – it’s quite easy to rent a place in UAE.
  • Try to gather information on the local culture and the acceptable behavior while living in the country.
  • Avoid spending on too much luxury as there is sufficient flashy things around to deviate your savings and spend.
  • You should move around to check the access points of different needs related to individual or family.’

Q: What is in your opinion the most important thing to take into consideration for people who are moving from the UAE to Greece or Czech?

‘The cost of living and knowledge of local culture is key!’

Q: Can you tell us a bit more about the costs involved moving to the UAE?

There are 4 main cost factors:

  1. Renting a place
  2. Food
  3. Medical insurance – mostly companies do cover this and if not all, then often a major cost
  4. Schooling – if not covered by your company, then it is a key & major cost to consider!


Q: What is the housing marketing like in the UAE? Is it difficult to find a home?

‘The UAE offer one of the best options in terms of accommodation, its easy and simple to sign up a property for rental. To give you an example; studios of 1 BHK to 6 or 8 BHK flats to houses are available. The minimum need is to have a UAE residence on your passport and the EID (Emirates ID card). All variable cost options are available depending on the location you choose to live.’

Q: Do people use Long Term or Temporary Storage Solutions?

‘Yes. People do use long and short terms storage solution as at time they change the contracts or jobs or location, even self-storage also a popular option for many who at time downsize their living house or keep changing the interior etc.’

Q: Any other tips to make moving to the UAE or from the UAE a relaxing experience?

‘Other than securing your cost of living, the medical and/or schooling, almost everything here is the best in the world and very affordable. Starting from food to staycation, entertainment, and luxury, it’s at its best possible way.’

Q: Would you like to add anything for people who are moving from or to the UAE (or specifically to Dubai or Abu Dhabi?)

There many reasons to move into UAE. Here is my list!

  • Opportunities are vast for business and jobs
  • Manor earnings are tax-free in the UAE
  • Balance between city and costal living
  • Well planned city in the world
  • Dubai is an international transport hub
  • Safety & culture grows and thrives here
  • Properties to live in are beautiful at reliable cost
  • You can ice-ski in the desert
  • Shopping malls are amongst the best in the world
  • A strong and stable economy really does rule
  • Educational standards are high
  • There’s no language barrier
  • Indexes for Quality of Living rate Dubai and UAE highly
  • UAE is very family friendly
  • Excellent support for Expats
  • The new 10-Year Visa and 100% foreign ownership
  • The UAE rulers wants everybody to be happy

Thank you very much, Abhilash for taking the time to share your experiences with us!

International movers to the Netherlands: 5 things you need to know about moving to the Netherlands from Greece and vice versa

International movers to the Netherlands

A practical guide for international movers and packers Netherlands

What do you need to know for moving to the Netherlands from Greece?

Are you thinking of moving from Greece to the Netherlands? Being part of the EU, Greek citizens face fewer bureaucratic and custom restrictions moving to the Netherlands in comparison to third-country citizens. However, organizing an international relocation is not something you should do on your own. KAE International Movers has the experience to offer essential services and knowledge to help you move to (and from) the Netherlands easily.

International movers to the Netherlands

At KAE International Movers, we have a constant flow of weekly transports between Greece and the Netherlands, and we deliver everywhere in the country. That is why we offer a team of experienced local experts to help you move to the Netherlands or back to Greece, move your household goods, and settle into your new country. They will get your belongings from Greece to Holland (or the other way around) safely and on time.

KAE International, movers and packers Netherlands

To make things easier, we have listed the top 5 things to take into consideration when moving from Greece to the Netherlands!

Top 5 things to take into consideration when moving from Greece to the Netherlands

1. Method of transport

The choice in transport depends on what you want to take with you. The volume will help you choose the method of transport and consequently and most importantly, the cost of moving.

Small volume

If you are planning to move goods of a small volume, for instance one pallet (120cm L x 100cm W x 200cm H) and up to 25cbm (a normal sized local truck 6 to 7 meters in length) then road freight may be your best option. Once your household goods are packed and ready to depart, it usually takes between 5 – 8 days for the goods to arrive at our associated warehouse in the Netherlands. This is a good option for people who require a fast service. Road freight option also gives the flexibility of moving with the minimal of transport documents required between both Greece and the Netherlands.

Larger volumes of goods

For people or families who have larger volumes (25+ CBM), sea freight is often suggested. The customer can then compare and make the right decision in which transport method best suits them.

2 Time of delivery

Sometimes, families who have additional extra volume to take with them, need more time to find a residence. This process of finding the correct house could take a few months. This is why we also recommend the sea freight option since the transit time beginning from the time the goods are packed up to the time the goods arrive at the port, could take approx. 25 – 30 days. Within this time frame, it gives families that extra time to look for that ideal house. If the goods were shipped by road, they would arrive earlier, and the customer would have to pay the extra storage costs.

To summarize, to people who want to take their time, we recommend sea freight. For those who want their goods quite fast, we recommend road freight.

In some cases, people don’t mind waiting for the majority of their goods to arrive later, but they also need a few things that are essential to them which they would require sooner. For those who require both, the solution is to offer a combination of both sea and road or even sea and air freight, so that the essential items get there either within 2-3 days (air freight) or within a week (road freight).

3 Costs for moving from Greece to the Netherlands: international movers prices

Usually, the best option for a customer is the most economical one. The price of shipping your items depends on a few critical things whereby the most common denominators are the volume and how quickly you want your belongings to get there.

There are also secondary services that could influence the costs such as, what floor level are you moving from or going to? Will you pack things yourself? Are the access conditions at both origin or destination difficult that will require additional handing? You might even require a high value item to be crated such as a piano or a work of art. You may also require some temporary storage.

4 Legal requirements & customs regulations

The Netherlands does not impose rigid rules on importation of personal belongings. They can enter the country without major problems or taxation. However, if you wish to bring food with you, it might get a little more complicated as the country has some notable restrictions for it. Here’s a summarized list of prohibited and restricted items.

Prohibited and Restricted Items in the Netherlands

The import of the following items is restricted:

  • large sums of money in cash or securities (over 10,000 EUR)
  • animal products and food
  • art objects and antiques
  • cars and motorcycles

You cannot bring the following items to the Netherlands:

  • protected animal and plant species (tigers, snakes, sharks, elephants, etc.) or products made of them (bags, jewelry, coats, etc.)
  • weapons and ammunition
  • toy or fake weapons that imitate real ones
  • narcotics

5 Storage options

If you move to an unfurnished place (often the standards in the Netherlands) you need to bring you furniture along. In that case, choosing an appropriate storing facility for your household items is important. That way you will be ready to make your new house a home as soon as you arrive in the Netherlands.

Renting out safe storage space, whether for the short or long term, is a service that KAE International Movers will arrange for you. We will also help you to plan and ship your goods in advance.

A year of many successful international moves from Prague is behind us. Naturally, given the worldwide situation, all moves were performed in accordance with the corona crises safety measures issued by the Czech Republic government and the WHO such as keep distances and the use of hand sanitizers and face masks. 

In the summer, for instance, there was the relocation of the university staff member from Opava, a northeastern city in the Czech Republic, to Hanseatic Lüneburg in Germany. This door to door removal of 25m3 took us via the E1 highway via Poland towards Northern Europe. Although this road has been under construction for quite some time now, our team arrived at the delivery address the next day. The accessibility of the destination required this move to be performed with two small vans. The historic building 3rd-floor apartment had no elevator therefore our professional movers team carried numerous boxes with books, paintings and other objects with the help of moving straps up the stairs.

Another KAE project took place some 400 km away, in the city of Prague, in cooperation with our Euromovers partners. Here we moved the coach from one of the largest ice hockey clubs in the Czech Republic. For the 55 square meters full household relocation of this client and his family, we used one large truck to make the journey to Cologne. As the delivery address was located in a suburban dead-end street, our local crew handled the destination services with smaller vans to shuttle all belongings from the truck to the clients new home.  

We are looking forward to carrying out more safe and covid-19-secure moving project this new year.

A safe choice in moving with Kae International Movers in Prague

1. Choose a reliable moving company

Reliability should be your first step when looking for a safe choice in moving. Do the research and pick your moving company carefully. To make sure that the moving company is trustworthy, get referrals and start by asking friends, family members and co workers if they can make a recommendation. Research a moving company directory such as this one for Prague and the Czech Republic, for a list of reputable movers. Also look for website testimonials or verified customer review platforms such as Google Reviews and social media.  

Accreditations and awards

A great way to check the quality of the moving company you’re considering is checking to see if they are up to date on their certifications. Also check the moving company’s website for professional accreditations and industry memberships such as Euromovers or the IAM, the global association of movers and forwarders committed to providing customers with the highest level of service available.

2. Expect high level Customer Care

At a reliable moving company you may expect the highest level of customer care. A moving company is responsible and professional when they offer a trusted customer care department and have someone in charge of answering all your questions. Ask for an in-person estimate, since no company can really give you a thorough estimate without seeing your belongings. During the estimate, note how professional the movers are. Adaptability and flexibility must be key when addressing your concerns, and you should expect a fast and professional response to all your queries.

3. A safe choice in moving with Kae International Movers in Prague: Insure your personal effects

It is the moving company’s responsibility to provide the greatest care of every single item that is packed in order to protect all your valuable goods that are being moved. But any moving service can be exposed to risks. Unexpected events cannot be predicted, therefore it is always recommended insuring all your goods while in transit or in storage in the Czech Republic. 

Valuing your goods and completing your inventory is an important step ensuring your goods are well covered. In case of an international move, insure your personal goods or office effects for their full replacement value in the country to which you are moving. It is likely that the cost of repairs as well as replacement will be higher abroad. If you do not insure them for the full replacement value, you will only be able to recover part of your loss from the insurers. 

Have as much written information about your high value items as possible. The underwriters of your moving company may require proof of ownership and/or value of such items. Make sure you photograph these items, print them in color, date and sign the prints and add them to your inventory. For items of high value, you can never take too many precautions. 

Also pay attention to storage coverage. Some moving companies insure their clients’ goods from collection to delivery whilst others only insure goods while in storage. 

4. Check Security Measures 

Protecting clients information

Whether you are moving your family or relocating your company, keeping sensitive information safe during relocation can be challenging. Office moves in particular can get chaotic, which increases the likelihood of slipping away your confidential information to the wrong hands. Professional moving services will keep your family, client and business information protected when moving. 

It is a must to make a list of inventory, but it is essential for sensitive documents too. By making a record, you will get to know whether you have any client and business information that needs to be protected. At the same time, discard unnecessary documents. We all accumulate documents that are no longer necessary, so moving is the right time to dispose them permanently. It will make your move or relocation secure, efficient, and less messy. Use a shredder for hard copies with sensitive data and information. When deleting electronic files, it is vital to remove them from your server or computer. 

Do not pack confidential documents with other possessions. Always keep sensitive information locked up in drawers or cabinets when shifting your home or office from one place to another.

Take advantage of secure storage services to ensure the safety of your official documents and information throughout the process. 

Secure Storage Warehouse 

Not all moving companies offering storage facilities are created equally. Be sure to ask about their levels of security, access, and climate controlled conditions. Professional movers have the ability to store your household belongings in a climate controlled and secure storage warehouse. You also want secure storage location without unauthorized entry. These secure storage facilities have multiple levels of security. This can include video surveillance, locked gates, and on-site security personnel. 

5. Stay COVID-19 Safe

Make sure your moving company is COVID-19 secure (click here). Ask what measures they are taking to ensure a safe move experience during the COVID-19 outbreak because some measures undertaken by the Czech Republic differed in key aspects from other countries. Reputable movers must understand safety and health, and it’s imperative the moving company you choose demonstrates considerable vigilance at this time.

Get a virtual quote, and be clear on the process of rescheduling your move should corona crisis measures change. Choose a moving company that is flexible during these uncertain times. When you receive your moving quote, you may want to inquire about refund and/or deposit policies in the event you do need to cancel your move. 

When you are ready to move, clean and disinfect and make sure that you increase ventilation by opening windows and doors to allow in fresh air.  Once the movers have arrived for loading and unloading, practice the general COVID-19 protective safety measures advice by the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic*. These recommendations include but are not limited to the following: wearing masks and/or creating reminders to avoid touching the face, regular handwashing and regularly disinfecting surfaces, social distancing and protection of vulnerable family members. After you move, you should thoroughly disinfect your new home before you unpack and settle in.

Vetting your movers safety is the most important step to take when it comes to making your moving decision.
