Cost of Movers U.K. to Ireland

Cost of Movers U.K. to Ireland


As international moves go, you can’t beat a move from the U.K. to Ireland. The cost is reasonable, and the special relationship between the two countries makes it even easier. By road, a full container can be shipped from the U.K.  to Ireland for as little as £1,500 – £2,200. Your belongings will arrive in Ireland within 2-4 days. By sea, a full container will cost £4,200 – £5,800 and take between 25-31 days to arrive. For obvious reasons, most people choose the former option.

Ireland and the United Kingdom’s fortunes are bound together in a way that even Brexit can’t tear apart. Sharing a Common Travel Area, the citizens of these two countries can live, work, and travel freely across their shared borders.

For the most part, your household goods can be imported to Ireland tax and duty-free.

Required Documents:

  • K. Passport
  • Bill of Lading if by land or sea
  • Air Waybill if by air
  • Form 1076
  • Comprehensive inventory, signed and dated
  • Proof of prior residence in the U.K. and new address in Ireland
  • Work Permit
  • Lease, rental agreement, or proof of home purchase in Ireland
  • Proof of 2 years of employment in Ireland

Moving a vehicle to Ireland

Thanks to the Common Travel Area, moving a vehicle to Ireland is pretty easy, too. You will need to be present for the customs declaration process and will be charged VAT at a rate of 21% and VRT (vehicle registration tax) when applicable. Residents of the U.K. should claim “preferential treatment” on their declarations.

The VRT is calculated based on your vehicle’s book value. It can be hard to know what your VRT will be ahead of time, so working with an overseas shipper is smart. An overseas shipper has the expertise to give you cost estimates you can count on.

Common Travel Area aside, if you plan to stay in Ireland for longer than six months, you should get your Irish driver’s license.
