Removals UK to EU after Brexit

After Brexit, all goods including resettlement property, removals crossing the UK border need to be cleared by customs, regardless of whether they have any customs charges.

Customs clearance allows you not to pay any customs duties on your personal resettlement property.

  • You will also need customs clearance, please see details below for information and assistance in obtaining documents.

Customs clearance is the preparation of a document – called a customs declaration – which will enable the cargo to cross the UK-EU border, completing all the steps required by the rules of customs procedure, related to the passage of goods, persons, luggage through the customs border of a given country, which are subject to customs control.

We offer a remote service for your convenience. We accept scans of documents electronically, so no one has to come to our office.
