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 a cost-effective reality.
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.
Cost-effective removals to the UK
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.
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.
Removals to or from Europe, EU, and Brexit
If you're moving from Europe or an EU country - or moving to Europe and the EU to the UK - you probably have questions regarding the transport and importing of your belongings to your new country.
The transition period
During the transition period (scheduled to end on 31 December 2020), there are currently no changes to the free movement of people and goods between the European Union and the United Kingdom.
Should the United Kingdom decide to end the transition period early, requirements and processes may change. We will update our customers if circumstances and regulations change.
Moving Motor Vehicles to the UK
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.

Comments regarding your initial enquiry Very helpfulSusan BlakeBirmingham
Provided a competitive quote for our removal and storage needs
The crews on both days were very helpful, polite and efficient. They were careful with our property and belongings.
There were notes made in a telephone call to Lynne re access to the new property on August 19th which had not been given to the crew. This led to a delay because the information had not been passed on. We had to go out to meet the crew in their 17 tonne truck to reassure them that access was possible, which had previously been confirmed in a call to Burrows (another local removals firm).
They were recommended to us and provided a competitive quote for our removal and storage needs
Both crews (Richard, Tom, Tony and Andy on May 13/14th; Ryan and Mike on August 19th) were very helpful, friendly and did their best to ensure we were happy with the service provided. They took care to protect our belongings packing/unpacking.
Comments regarding your initial enquiry - Ernie responded politely and arranged an online assessment of our removal needs.Charlotte ClownesManchester
True professionals and were a joy to have around
Just a note of sincere thanks in appreciation of my recent move from Wolvey to Oadby. The Brum team Paul, Dan, Fabio, Chris and Ryan were wonderful. Kind, happy and nothing was too much trouble. Please pass on my thanks and good wishes. They are true professionals and were a joy to have around.
Your Leicester team…. Lynne, Trevor and Mark were welcoming, supportive and couldn’t have been more considerate. Bless you all.Julie FranksBirmingham
They even put our couch back together so our young kids had somewhere to sit
Ryan, Mike and the lads were fantastic. On the first day, three crew turned up and packed up the ground floor and a room upstairs in 2 hours. Due to the solicitors slowing down the completion, the lads had to hang on a bit longer but as the day was getting later two more guys joined the team giving us 6 people to unload the van and put it in to the correct rooms within the hour, they even put our couch back together so our young kids had somewhere to sit.
Couldn’t have done it without them though so I’m glad they had managed it so well on the day.
Comments regarding your initial enquiry - Ernie Humphries was straight to the point and extremely helpful in helping us to decide whether to pay for the packing service. Due to stamp duty ending, June had become a very intense and busy month so Ernie and Keeley were quick to help accommodate our needs. We couldn’t get two days together so they were able to pack on one day and load the van two days later.Rob DewhirstManchester
