Congratulations and Karibu Sana ya Kenya!

Worldwide Movers Africa (Kenya) was established in November 1997 and offers international packing, moving and storage services, pet relocations and orientation programs for new arrivals.

Country Profile

The team members are recruited for their experience, honesty and competence and the administration is made up of young enthusiastic professionals with skills in removals, export/import, freight and customs formalities. Workshop programs, and attendance at overseas conferences with agency network partners, help to keep our strategies right up to date.

Due to some security issues, many relocations to and from Kenya include pets, dogs in particular. With the help of our sister company Priority Pets Africa, we move your pets safely and comfortably and we ensure that direct flights are used whenever possible and that the transit time is kept to a bare minimum. In most cases we construct the transit containers to IATA specifications but you may use your own if it conforms.

We encourage you to use the transit container well before the move so your pet can feel completely at home in it. Delivery of your pet to your new home is looked after by professionals, all of whom are members of the necessary international trade associations. It is the responsibility of the pet owner to comply with veterinary and quarantine requirements.

Special training is also focused on presentation, timely arrivals for moves and packing and crating of high value items. We have three full-time packing crews, each comprised of one team leader, an assistant supervisor and three packers. Worldwide Movers Africa (Kenya) boasts a well maintained fleet of six vehicles and allied support.

Orientation Services

It’s not easy finding your way around in a new city if you don’t have the resources of a resident friend to show you the ropes. The aim of our City Orientation Tour is to show you where to find what you need and make your initial settling-in period a little easier. As well, you can use your own car if you like (or ours) to get you accustomed to driving in local city traffic.

The tour includes: favoured expat residential areas, shopping centers, the central business district, schools, hospitals, embassies, specialty shops such as delicatessens, hardware stores, furnishing stores, liquor stores, opticians, major hotels, restaurants, entertainment spots, and points of cultural interest. In addition you will be shown sports and social clubs as well as spots to acquire a reliable vehicle. A Worldwide Movers Africa representative will collect you from your hotel or office where we will generate an orientation tour that suits your particular needs. The tour lasts approximately four hours and includes lunch. Please contact our office for more information.

Safety

Most African metropolises are considerably safer than some larger western cities. Common sense and some pertinent advice make life easier and more secure. Please call Worldwide Movers Africa who will be pleased to organize an Orientation Tour for you during which time you can discuss home security, car security, security companies and various methods to prevent theft.
