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 Europe and overseas 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.
We would recommend taking out the 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 whilst they are in transit.
The cost of your International removals depends on a number of factors including where in the UK you are moving from and where 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 overseas every year, the cost may be much less than you think when you consider the distances involved from say London to Hong Kong, or London to New Zealand.

The removal men, James, Grant and Marcus arrived early and they worked so hard to get all our belongings safely into our new house. They were really accommodating and very careful with all of our things. I was expecting the day to be very stressful but as a result of them, it wasn’t at all. Would really recommend Simpsons.
From the intial survey, booking and then the actual move everything was done in an efficient and proffessional way. Would recommend Simpsons to eliviate the stress and hard work of a house move.
