Removals to Israel | Shipping to Israel | International Moving Companies

Dolphin Movers carry out frequent removals to Israel for people who are moving house to Israel to live and work there either temporarily or permanently. We arrange removals to Israel or back again several times a month to all destinations in Israel but especially Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Haifa, so if you are looking for international moving companies which already have extensive experience of shipping to Israel, Dolphin Movers should be your first choice.

Shipping to Israel involves a sea journey through the Mediterranean with belongings packed into container units and delivered into one of Israel's ports such as Haifa or Jaffa, followed by a lorry journey to your new home or business premises ready for unloading and, if required, unpacking.

Most removals to Israel are for private individuals and many UK residents are attracted to Israel for family reasons or to work in a variety of growth industries including information technology, real estate, desalination and nuclear technology, although of course the Mediterranean climate is also greatly appealing. However there are also a number of moves for business reasons and Dolphin are equipped to deal with either type of move.

About Israel

Geography and Demographics
Israel lies on the easternmost end of the Mediterranean Sea and has borders with Syria, Lebanon and Egypt. The capital city of Israel is Jerusalem. Other major cities include Arad, Beersheba, Eilat, Haifa, Modi'in-Maccabim-Reut, Rishon LeZion and Tel Aviv. There are two international airports in Tel Aviv and Negev as well as additional domestic airports in Herzliya (Herzlia), Jerusalem, Kfar Sirkin, Megiddo, Kiryat Shmona and Rosh Pinna. Flights between London and Tel Aviv take around 5 hours. There are sea ports in Ashdod, Eilat, Haifa, Jaffa and Tel Aviv. The population of Israel is nearly 7.8 million.

Economy
Israel's economy is well developed and based on a market economy. As well as a strong agricultural industry, technology and finance are also prominent, along with a variety of service industries. Major industries include metal products, electronic and biomedical equipment, agricultural products, processed foods, chemicals and transport equipment. The Israeli diamond business is one of the best in the world for diamond cutting and polishing. Israel's main exports are machinery and equipment, software, diamonds, agricultural goods, chemical products, textiles and clothing.

History
The Israelis trace their source back to Abraham, the name Israel being derived from the name that was given to Jacob, Abraham's grandson. The Israelites formed a nation in 1300 BC, under the leadership of Moses, who freed them from slavery in Egypt. The Israelites spent 40 years in the Sinai desert, before Moses took them to the Land of Israel, which is mentioned in The Bible and believed to be the land promised by God to the offspring of Abraham.

The time between 1000-587 BC is known as the "Period of the Kings". The most well-known kings were King David (1010-970 BC), who made Jerusalem the capital city of Israel and his son King Solomon (Shlomo, 970-931 BC), who constructed the first temple in Jerusalem as stipulated in the Old Testament.

In 587 BC, Israel was invaded by the Babylonians and the army occupied Jerusalem, devastating the temple and sending the Israeli people to Babylon (modern day Iraq). Since then Israel has been occupied by a series of superpowers: Babylonian, Persian, Greek Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine Empires, Islamic and Christian crusaders, Ottomans and British.

In 1948, David Ben-Gurion re-established Israeli rule over their promised land. British forces left Israel and the Declaration of independence of the modern State of Israel was announced.

Landmarks and Attractions
Israel is famous for being the place where Judaism and Christianity originated. Landmarks and attractions include the Dead Sea, Caesarea City, Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Church of the Nativity, Jerusalem Old City, Eilat's Beaches, Masada's Desert Fortress, Sea of Galilee (Lake Kineret), Wailing Wall (Western Wall) in Jerusalem, Via Dolorosa and Yad Veshem. Israel's landscape is quite diverse and includes desert, hills, small mountains, valleys, rivers and lakes.

Israel combines a wide range of cultures, religions and immigrants resulting in high quality and varied cuisine. Typical dishes include falafel, hummus, tahina, couscous and gefilte fish. Israeli's tend to eat later than Brits and lunch can be as late as 3pm and although restaurants open at around 6 or 7pm they generally don't get busy until 9pm onwards.

Expats in Israel
Many expats are drawn to Israel because of culture or faith and for others the lively economy and prospering technology sector is what pulls them. Expats will love Israel's warm climate. Israel's technology sector has attracted large foreign investments and this flood of wealth has brought many job prospects for gifted and skilled expats.
