Post Brexit Customs Clearance
As UK is no longer a part of EU and Customs Union, all removals to and from the UK are required to go through the Customs clearance process. You are eligible for the tax-free entry if you meet the following criteria:

- All your goods have been used for at least 6 months in the country of origin before the move
- The usual place of residence has been outside the customs area for at least 12 consecutive months 
- Goods are brought to a new place of residence within a period of no longer than 12 months after arrival

The documents required for tax-free customs clearance are listed below.

If you are not eligible for tax-free entry, VAT and DUTY will be applied by the customs authorities upon entry.

Please note that in case of inheritance, cars and motorbikes or diplomatic removals additional documentation is required - please contact us for more details.

"By far the best"

Out of all the European removals companies, I have used in my life and I have lived in many different places, from Dubai to London to Paris your service was by far the best. Your service was always punctual, and professional, and took a lot of the stress out of moving, which is one of life’s most stressful experience.
Noor Kadhim
Manager, International Chamber of Commerce

"Company that cares"

They are the best case of what a service business should be like. From the move planner to the people that show up to remove your things, they are the only example to emulate for customer service, price and care for their clients…”
