Sorry. I am trying to figure this out and the AED numbers donít make sense to me yet. The conversion would be 440700 and 110200 respectively. This totals 550900 AED for the entire package.

Until you get the hang of it, I would maybe suggest just putting 1/3.67 or in the case of ten dollars, $10/36.70dir.

If its really nice stuff that you want to keep for 20 years, then I would strongly suggest do not move it and get it ruined. Just store it.


I'm not the only one at work that I know of thats brought good stuff here without any incidence ... realy comes down to how good your removalist does the initial packing ... our company provides for individual 20' or 40' private container both ways, so it realy is down to the packing !

Believe me, with me hovering when its being packed I'd be the first to object if something is not right! ... ... After all, they're being paid good money for a service !!

Also, is anyone in IT Project Management or knows of what some average salaries are for these positions. I guess Iíve gotten use to US companies always verifying how much you are currently making and not wanting to give you much more, but is this the case there?

Thanks again for all the help. This information is invaluable.
