Cost of Moving from the U.K. to the Netherlands

Movers United Kingdom to the Netherlands

Moving to the Netherlands from the U.K. isn’t too expensive. You can move the contents of an entire two-bedroom home to the Netherlands from the U.K. for less than £2,500. This price is, of course, only an estimate of the cost to move a full-size shipping container, and you will have other expenses to pay. The best way to avoid an unexpected expense is to work with an overseas moving company.

The hard part of an international move isn’t really the international shipping logistics. The truth is, customs requirements before you even leave your home country can be onerous. Your shipment may only take 2-4 days to arrive in the Netherlands, less time than it took for you to pack your belongings and create your shipping manifest.

Can I Import my Household Goods to the Netherlands? 

Your household goods will be tax and duty-free if you meet the requirements. These requirements include:

  • You have lived in the U.K. for at least a year.
  • You are moving your main residence, rather than a vacation home.
  • You have owned your belongings in the U.K. for at least a year before your move.

Once you bring your goods into the Netherlands tax-free, you cannot sell, trade, rent, loan, or otherwise dispose of the goods for one year after your arrival. The Dutch government also stipulates that your household imports must be consistent with your reported social status.

Customs officials will require the following documents:

  • Copy of your Passport
  • Visa
  • Bill of Lading
  • Certificate of Residence with proof of address in the Netherlands
  • Comprehensive Inventory

Note: Unlike some countries, which require household shipments to arrive in one shipment, the Netherlands will allow you to import multiple shipments of your household goods within two years of your arrival in the country. However, you will need to plan ahead. You must obtain your import permit when you make your first shipment, but the permit must contain information about all your future shipments, as well.

How Do I Bring my Vehicle to the Netherlands?

Upon arrival, customs will determine if your vehicle is eligible for the removal goods tax exemption. If you meet the criteria below, you are exempt from this tax:

  • The vehicle is being imported due to your permanent relocation.
  • You have used the vehicle in the U.K. for at least six months.
  • You lived in the U.K. for at least one year.

As in most countries, driving a car without legal registration and insurance is illegal. Working with an overseas moving company specializing in international imports will help you meet all the requirements without hassle.
