UK and International Removals & Storage since 1884
Removals to Europe, EU, and Brexit
Brexit, as of this moment (May 2019) is a bit of an unknown, and if you're moving to Europe - or moving from Europe and the EU to the UK - you probably have questions regarding the transport and importing of your belongings to your new country.
The European Union has granted an extention of the Brexit date until 31 October 2019. Until that time, the United Kingdom remains a member of the European Union and rules for transport, export, and import remain unchanged. Should your removal occur prior to this date (assuming it does not get moved up), your international removal should not be impacted.
Uncertainty with import and export of goods
There is uncertainty regarding HMRC and Border Force regulations, which may affect the importation and exportation of goods from the UK from the official date of Brexit.
No deal Brexit
In the event of a no deal Brexit, and the absence of free movement of goods and people; any moves booked to and from the UK, into or out of the EU member states will require customs clearance at the border.
Additional documentation such as Transfer of Residence (ToR) into the UK and permission to live or work in the country of destination may also be required. As such, any move booked prior to Brexit for dates on or after the official date of Brexit may experience delays, changes in requirements, or may no longer be possible.
Due to the uncertainty surrounding Brexit, particularly a no deal scenario, we do not know what additional costs or fees may be levied on the transportation and importation of goods between the UK and the EU. Should any additional costs or fees be incurred as a result of Brexit and any new regulations, these will be passed on to the customer. We will keep you informed of any additional costs as soon as we are aware of them.
