Cost of Moving from the UK to CO

Cost of Moving from the United Kingdom to Colorado

When you move from the U.K. to Colorado, you will need to decide how best to transport your goods overseas. Most people moving overseas work with an international moving company. There is a lot of paperwork to complete, and the red tape can be daunting.

Now for the important part: what does it cost? The cost to ship a full container to Denver from London is around £8,500 – £11,400. The trip will take between 5 – 7 weeks, so the way you pack is just as important as what you pack. That is a long time to keep your grandmother’s china from breaking, so working with a shipper will give you the best chance of success.

Importing a Vehicle to the U.S

When you import a vehicle to the U.S., you will have to meet criteria related to emission standards and vehicle safety.

Emission standards

Emission standards in the United States are set by the Environmental Protection Agency. Cars imported to the U.S. must be certified by the EPA to comply with their emission standards. Vehicles manufactured for use outside of the U.S. are not automatically certified, so imported vehicles will be subject to inspection and modification as needed.

Safety standards

Safety standards for your vehicle include an examination for basic mechanical safety and compliance. A safety inspection will evaluate basic safety measures, such as seat belts, wipers, headlights. Mechanical modifications will also be needed for your vehicle to be safely driven in North America. These modifications can be expensive and unsightly, so be sure to do your research before you decide.

As always, vehicle imported into the U.S. must have a clean title with no liens. You will be required to pay a customs duty of 2.5% of the value of the vehicle.

Importing Household Goods into the US

When preparing your household goods for import to the U.S., remember that customs declarations will require you to present a box-by-box, detailed inventory that includes descriptions and any applicable serial numbers.

Will you need a full container or a half container? A full container refers to a 40-foot space, and a half-container is a 20-foot space. Shipping a half container is usually just a few hundred dollars less. Most people choose to pay for the full container so they can bring all of their belongings and worry less about space.


Customs Duty

As far as duty and taxes go, goods valued at less than $800 are not subject to customs duty and taxes, but you will owe customs duty for shipments above that value. Check with your local U.S. embassy for the most current guidance, or work with a shipper so you never have to worry about it.
