Default Shipping of Car from Doha?

My husband is looking for a transport company to ship his small car from Doha, and also want to know if we have to leave the car empty or can put suitcases inside? Thank you

You'd have to get a Doha based company, UAE companies can only export cars, not bring them in. Infact, some cranes can probably do it for not too much (it's only 5-6 hours drive technically). I wouldn't leave bags inside; the less items in the car, the better. Saudi customs can be a bit fussy.

I've spoken to Crown Relocations in Doha to do this (we ended up selling it off tho' from the talk of it being too much hassle).

If you'd like to get started, their number is : +974 4462 1115. The person I dealt with is efficient although away for Christmas unfortunately. We moved from Doha to Dubai a couple of months back.

Good Luck.
