Removals to the UK from Europe

Our removals team is continually on the move between Europe and the UK, and we don't like to bring our trucks back empty. Whether you're coming home or starting a new life in the UK, we can help make it reality.

Using Britannia Bradshaw is often a very cost-effective solution over local firms in Europe and you don't need to fill up our entire removals van. We are happy to take small loads and part loads.

Our European experts will discuss your move plan and check access to ensure your relocation goes smoothly. You will be kept fully informed of final schedules. We are experienced in providing outside hoists, shuttle vans and parking permits where required.

We can even store your furniture and belongings in our UK warehouses until you're ready to have them delivered to your new home.

Brexit & European removals

Brexit may impact your removal from Europe to the UK, including the transport of your belongings

Importing personal belongings to the UK

Shipments of household goods and personal effects are allowed duty free entry into the UK, provided that they have been owned and used for at least six months prior to importation.

It is possible to have your goods cleared by customs before you arrive in the UK, providing they do not arrive more than six months before your own arrival and that all necessary documents are completed correctly and received by Britannia Bradshaw in advance of the shipment.

Assistance will be given to help you with customs formalities, and we will provide you with the correct customs form to complete and return before the arrival of your goods in the UK.

Moving Motor Vehicles to the UK - New Rules began in 2013

Beginning 15 April 2013, for all vehicles (both new and used) entering the UK for permanent use on UK roads you must notify HMRC within 14 days and any VAT due must be paid or accounted for. This new system is called the Notification of New Vehicle Arrivals (NOVA).

You will not be able to register and license your vehicle(s) with DVLA or DVA until you have received confirmation from HMRC that your notification has been processed and any VAT due has been paid.

We will be glad to assist you with moving your vehicle to the UK. For more information on importing your vehicle, please visit the HMRC website.
