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.

Where can we improve our removals day experience? It was the least stressful part of the whole procedure of selling our property, buying another and moving, So no improvement needed as far as we can see.
Why did you use us? Other firms would not do a home visit and we wanted a well- known reliable company that would understand our requirements.

We could not have asked for better moving service
We had 2 crews; Brian and George moved us out into storage. This time Sonic and Paul moved us from storage
into our new home. Both crews were excellent! They were very helpful and very professional. I cannot think of anything that I was not happy with.
Why did you use us? We had to choose the lowest of three quotes. Furthermore, having the consultant visit before quoting gave me confidence in the service that we would receive.
Do you have any additional comments or concerns regarding any portion of the service you received? I would like to commend the crew who moved in by name: Sonic and Paul. We could not have asked for better service.Colin SouthwayManchester
