Your journey with us:

Everything begins when you open the door to our friendly driver. Trained in heavy lifting, he will help you transfer all your treasured belongings into our state of the art van, packing them neatly and safely inside. Once you’re sure everything is in, you can wave him off – the next time you’ll see him will be when he knocks at your front door in Bulgaria!

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.

House Removals to Bulgaria

Documents you’ll need to move to Bulgaria:

Bureaucracy in removals from the United Kingdom to Bulgaria became a reality in January of 2021. Ever since Brexit, there are only two options for moving furniture, household goods and other personal effects between the UK and EU. The first one is regular import, which is subject to VAT equal to 25% of the value of goods, which we – VanOne International Movers – do not offer. The second one is residential relocations under Transfer of Residence status – and this is what we would be most glad to help you with. However, to grant you the Transfer of Residence status, the customs authorities in Bulgaria will require several documents. Failing to provide the required documents or meet the official requirements can cause the customs officer to deny you that status, in which case import VAT may apply.

The listed paperwork is necessary and we won’t be able to collect your belongings before it is complete:

  • A copy of ID card or Passport.
  • A certificate from the local council in Bulgaria 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. 12 months of council tax bills 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 and that you aim to remain an EU resident for at least one year.
  • A signed authorization 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 driver that’ll come to collect your goods will also have a CMR form for you to fill in.

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

You can also visit this Bulgarian embassy in the USA website for more information about bringing personal effects to Bulgaria (or the Dutch Government website for information in the English language).

Find the cheapest deals for house removals to Bulgaria

When you are planning removals from the UK to Bulgaria, you will search for an international removals company on Google in the hope of finding the cheapest deal. However, you could fall into the common trap of choosing a middleman agency – and end up paying more for your Bulgaria removals!

  • Google search results will often return middleman companies and price comparison sites over genuine removals companies, and these sites tend to include commission charges.
  • Speaking directly with a removals firm such as VanOne ensures you only pay for the service, with no commission fees or additional charges.

How to prepare:

There’s a famous saying in the British Army, “Proper planning prevents poor performance.” The same is true when booking removals to Bulgaria. To ensure your possessions are secure and safe in transit, we recommend you pack loose items in boxes or in suitcases, and that you cover up any furniture.

If you need packing materials, feel free to check out our online store where you can order heavy-duty shrink wrap and protective blankets.

How long does the removals to Bulgaria take to complete?

You’ll be there in no time at all. Once our drivers have loaded up the vehicle with your furniture and items, they drive straight for your new home. The average journey from the UK to Bulgaria takes just 56 hours, so you’ll be sitting on your favourite sofa with a glass of wine in hand before you know it.

  • If you reside in Scotland or Wales it can take longer.
  • If you are moving a small amount of belongings relative to the size of the van (<15 cubic meters) it may take up to 5 days for delivery. For details, click here.

Here is how to spot a genuine removals brand:

  • Use the Companies House service to check whether the company is registered with the UK authorities. A genuine company will be listed, along with contact details and business history. Middleman companies and lead generation companies use fake brand names, and they take a cut from your payment when they pass you onto a removals company.
  • Does the website use real photographs of their staff and vehicles? Stock images often indicate that a website is designed for lead generation, rather than for selling a service directly. Check for genuine photographs, rather than those sourced through Google Images and stock photo sites.
