Our story

Over the past 40+ years, DASA has flourished alongside the ever-changing and exhilarating UAE. But as a family firm run by British expats, we haven’t lost the personal touch.

Trust comes with experience – ask any one of our tens of thousands of satisfied customers.

From humble beginnings, DASA is now renowned as the longest established moving company in the region, and has built a formidable reputation as a leading provider of international relocation solutions.

Founded in 1979 in a dusty and undeveloped corner of Abu Dhabi, DASA’s services were soon in demand as business professionals, entrepreneurs and their families flocked to this fast-developing hub.

From a single contract with a sub-agency of Seatrain to agreements with British Airways, Lufthansa and Emirates, to name but a few, DASA continued to hone its services as a relocation expert. Through the 1980s, the Gulf War, and into the 21st century we have emerged a sure and constant service provider, offering comprehensive and end-to-end mobility services that meet our clients’ every need.

Now under the leadership of CEO Craig Reilly, son of the original founder, DASA is set to continue its success into the next millennium, relocating a whole new generation of expats across the globe. Fully accredited, highly skilled, meticulously practised, you can rely on DASA to move you where you want to be.

A word from our CEO, Craig Reilly.


My father formed this company in 1979, from a small office in Abu Dhabi with a neon sign in the window. Since then, my family has helped to grow DASA into what it is today, a globally respected business with offices and warehouse facilities in Dubai. I look forward to leading DASA onwards and upwards into a more sophisticated and competitive market.

As my staff and I know personally, moving residences or countries can be very stressful; navigating new environments or a country’s bureaucracy takes a certain expertise. Our aim is to ensure our customers’ transition is as smooth as possible, relying on our extensive experience and knowledge to provide the best possible service, every time.


Whether you’re moving around the corner or half way across the world, we can help.

At DASA, we go beyond: beyond countries, beyond expectations. Fully accredited, highly skilled, meticulously practiced, you can rely on DASA to move you where you want to be.
