If you are planning to relocate from the UK to Austria (Österreich) and seek an affordable way to transport your furniture and belongings, we can provide assistance! Simpsons has extensive experience in facilitating house moves to Austria, offering specialised services in international and European removals. Our team is well-versed in handling all aspects of the process, ensuring that your home relocation is smooth and stress-free.
Typically, when moving to Austria, your possessions are transported via road freight. This may involve either a dedicated removals van or, for smaller moves, a shared van. Rather than using conventional removal vans, we utilize larger European road trains, which allow for cost savings through economies of scale.
We provide a comprehensive door-to-door service, wherein our packers will carefully wrap your household contents for export and ensure their safe delivery to your new home in Austria. To discuss your specific requirements, regardless of the scale, we encourage you to complete our quote form. We will promptly reach out to address any queries you may have.
Simpsons provides you with many outstanding International removals services to Austria such as:
- Door to door service to Austria
- Personally assigned International Removals Move Manager
- Free Home Survey
- Storage facilities
- Air Freight or Sea Freight removal service
- Trained removal packers and high-quality packing materials
- Customs clearance removals service

Part of our services includes helping you with customs clearance to ensure that you meet the requirements for shipping & removals to Austria. If you use an experienced removal company like Simpsons, the customs clearance process will be easier and less stressful for you.
If you are looking for a quick removal service to Austria, we recommend using an air freight service.
For a cheaper service for moving to Austria, we recommend that you use a sea freight service. However, your belongings will take longer to arrive using sea freight compared to air freight.
Moving to Austria is an exciting time as you begin to experience inter-connecting countries, glorious history and stunning, diverse natural beauty.
Simpsons operates regular road services throughout Europe, for anyone moving to Austria or relocating in Europe. The destinations range from the Netherlands to Austria, and from Finland to Greece, whilst the popular offshore destinations – such as the Canary Islands, Balearics, Malta and Cyprus – are covered by our International services by sea.
Removals to Austria
Our dedicated load service offers the freedom of a specific date for the goods to be removed from your current premises and, subject to the confines of driving, the delivery date to your new home in Austria. You will have the peace of mind of seeing your goods loaded safely, and leave to travel directly to your new Austria home – allowing you to see the vehicle arrive to unload.
This service can also incorporate a period of storage, should this become necessary, and as with all our services, you may elect to take a full or part packing service when you are moving house in Europe.

If your consignment is of a small nature, time scale is not a critical factor, or you are simply working to a budget, then our part load service will be the obvious choice for lower removal costs. Whilst still offering a fixed date collection of your goods and maintaining compatibility with a packing service, this cost-saving service still provides first class services to all popular destinations for removals in Europe.

Removals to Austria FAQ Guide & Moving Checklist
Removals to Austria Cost
The cost of your removal to Austria depends on a number of factors including where in the UK you are moving from and where in Austria you plan to move to.
Naturally the cost also depends on how much you are taking – the price per cubic foot drops significantly as your volume increases.
However, as a large number of people move from the UK to Austria every year, the cost may be much less than you think when you consider the distances involved from say London to Vienna or Salzburg.
Removals to Austria after Brexit
In the transition period following the UK leaving the EU, (up until 31st December 2020), free movement of goods and personal effects between the UK and EU / EEA countries, continues.
Therefore, shipping of personal effects and household goods to your home in Austria can continue as before. Some changes to residency status may apply since Brexit, so you should seek advice on your personal situation.
Once the transition period ends and Brexit takes full effect, regulations for shipping and removals to European countries may change.
Insurance for your Move to Austria
We would recommend taking out Shipment Protection Cover for peace of mind whilst your belongings are on their journey.
Whilst we have expert packers who specialise in international removals and use accredited shipping lines who take special care of your personal belongings, we cannot control every eventuality.
Just as you will likely have home contents insurance in the UK and travel insurance for your family, we recommend you discuss with your Move Manager the available options for protecting your belongings whist they are in transit.
We have a variety of house removal and shipping services depending on your relocation needs. So no matter whether you are just shipping a few boxes to Austria or moving your entire house contents, we have a cost-effective solution for you.
Dedicated removals service to Austria
If you are undertaking a large house removal to Austria then our dedicated removal service will suit you. You will be allocated your own dedicated removal van and packing team to take all your furniture and other goods from your home in the UK to your new home in Austria.
Small removals to Austria (part or shared load)
If you don’t have much stuff to take with you to Austria, then our shared load removal service is ideal.
We regularly transport people’s household belongings and furniture on a ‘European road train’. to all parts of Austria including Madrid, Barcelona and of course the popular Costas.
This furniture removals service is our most popular as the cost is shared amongst other customers moving to the same area of Austria. In fact, it’s usually cheaper than ‘man and van’ type removals service and your belongings are certainly a lot safer!
Box shipping service for cheap removals to Austria
All our shipping options are cost effective but if you only have a few boxes to send to Austria then our Excess Baggage or box shipping will likely be your cheapest option.

Although Simpsons will take care of all the details they can for you, this convenient checklist will make preparing for the move as simple and worry free as possible.
Moving out: Before the removal men arrive, be clear in what they are contracted to do and what you are expected to do. If in doubt, ask the surveyor or a member of our staff. Ordinarily, both householder and the removal men have fairly defined responsibilities (though a measure of flexibility on both sides is of course desirable)
Children: Children, who are naturally curious and can easily get in the way, may potentially be injured. The younger ones are best left with a neighbour or friend until it is time to leave.
Swings/Climbing frames: Generally dismantling these is one job you will do yourself, but be careful not to lose the bolts. If wish us to arrange dismantling please discuss this with our surveyor
Garage/Shed: Tie together garden tools, and prepare items to be lifted straight onto the vehicle.
Self assembly furniture: If you have any furniture of the home assembly type particularly if made of chipboard, please note that we recommend dismantling units before the move, as the joints are seldom strong enough to survive even careful handling if the furniture is moved whilst still assembled.
Washing machines: Secure your washing machine drum, and disconnect from water supply and electric.
Books: Books are very heavy, use our book cartons as they are smaller and easier to manage.
China & glass: Wrap each item individually in packing paper or bubble wrap, packing the heavier items first with lighter pieces on top. Remember that plates and dishes are packed vertically and not laid flat.
Moving in: Make sure that you (or some other responsible person) is on hand to admit the removal men. If no-one is there and a reasonable waiting time expires, you could find yourself landed with storage and re-delivery charges. Enquire how long the vehicle will wait should you be inadvertently delayed on the way. It can also save time and confusion if you stand at the entrance and specify the location of each item as it is carried in.
Helping the move along: If you follow the guidelines suggested on this page you will find the removal men themselves responding to your good sense with extra efficiency and relaxed good humour. You can also help the move along by remembering to pack the kettle last. A cup of tea all round is a gesture always much appreciated.
Tipping: There is, of course, no obligation to tip the men, but, as with all personal services, people like to reward extra attention, willing good humour or a job well done. If you feel that a reward has been earned, the driver or packer in charge will distribute any gratuity given amongst the crew.

I never had such nice people than the two who came to deliver our household goods, friendly the minute they exited the moving van, we waited at the curb. Nice, nice people I give them an AAAA + they deserve a raise.
May we say how professional, polite and efficient GRANT and JAMES were is methodically and carefully packing all our shipment items. Could not have expected more. We think it is a great service by all the staff and we always recommend Simpsons to our relocating friends.
