Your journey with us:

Once everything is packed in neatly and securely, it’s off to Austria we go!

We know we’re carrying your most valued possessions, so for your peace of mind we’ll keep you updated throughout the whole journey, and when we’re two hours away from the destination we’ll give you a courtesy call to confirm our arrival time.

Two hours later you’ll open your front door and be greeted by the same friendly driver, who’ll happily help you bring all your items into your new home. It really couldn’t be easier.

Documents you’ll need to move to Austria:

Though we used to offer a nearly “paperless” European relocation service, it is no longer possible. Removals to Austria after Brexit are very much a bureaucracy-riddled process. We will, of course, still carry your possessions safely from the United Kingdom to your new home – and do our best to help you comply with the official requirements – but collecting all the necessary paperwork must be performed by you.

People moving home to Austria in a post-Brexit reality must achieve Transfer of Residence status in order to be exempt from import VAT (20% of the total value of goods). Whether a transit qualifies as Transfer of Residence or not is the decision of the customs authority, and the paperwork listed below helps the Austrian customs office make the correct decision.

We will only be able to collect your goods if you supply us with the following documents:

  • Identity card or Passport copy.
  • A certificate from the local council in Austria to certify residency. Alternatively, suppose the EU customs agent agrees, it might be enough for you to supply a document confirming that you are an EU resident or intend to become one, for example:
    • If you live with your family in the EU, please ask them to complete and sign this template and provide a copy of their personal ID and a utility bill with the address.
    • Or if you are employed in the EU, please provide your EU employment contract.
    • Or if you have living arrangements in the EU, please provide a utility bill with your name and address on it or your tenancy agreement, or the property ownership deed.
  • A detailed, signed packing list with the value, size and weight of each listed item. Please fill in all fields provided in VanOne Insurance Form.
  • A UK certificate of residence or other evidence that you’ve lived in the UK at least for the last 12 months (e.g. Council tax bill or bank statements showing address).
  • A self-certificate (please use this template) to inform the customs authorities that you’ve used the household objects at your usual residence in the UK for more than six months and that you won’t sell, rent or pledge them after receiving them in your new place.
  • Completed ZBefr2 declaration.
  • A signed authorisation for the customs clearance agent to act as your direct representative. A blank form will be supplied to you by VanOne after you confirm your booking.

You must print and sign all the documents and have them ready for the driver in a large envelope. Please also supply completed documents electronically via the customer portal for verification.

The above documents are required prior to collecting your belongings. On the day of your move we will give you a CMR form (cargo movement) to fill out.

If you want to speed up the process or find out more you might want to contact your local customs office in Austria.

You can also visit this government resource for more information about bringing personal effects to Austria (or the Dutch Government website for information in the English language).

How to prepare:

There’s an old saying in the British Army: proper planning prevents poor performance. The same holds true with moving. In order for your possessions to be as safe and secure as possible in transit, we recommend you place all loose items in boxes or in suitcases, and that you cover up (or place padding on) any furniture. If you need packing supplies, feel free to check out our online store where you can order heavy duty shrink wrap and protective blankets.

How long does the journey to Austria take?

Not long at all. Once our drivers have packed up the van with your belongings, they head straight for your new home. The average trip from the UK to Austria is just 36 hours,* so you’ll be sitting on your favourite sofa with a cup of tea in hand in no time. Please note that moves from Scotland or Wales can take up to 48 hours.

  • Orders smaller than the full loading capacity of the removal vehicle (<15 cubic meters) can take up to 5 days to deliver.
  • The weight limit for a 15m3 order is 1000kg.
