Default Furniture from uk

Want to buy some furniture from marks and spencer and they do t deliver to UAE yet.....so question: what is best way to get items shipped to Dubai? Obviously when we moved here, we used pickfords to ship all our possesses in a container but has anyone used another company to ship items from uk.....?

Some advice please. Thanks

Wouldn't of thought worth it? It would cost a fortune for furniture to be shipped ....

Probably be cheaper to get the furniture made than pay shipping costs.

IKEA is about the same as the UK, as a guide. Maybe marginally cheaper.
