House Removals to Croatia from UK

Documents you’ll need to move to Croatia:

Moving between the UK and EU is not the paperwork-free experience it used to be before Brexit. The reason for that is reintroduction of borders and customs to all transport. There’s quite a few documents required in order to relocate under the Transfer of Residence status and be exempt from import VAT (at the rate of 25% of the value of transported goods). We will gladly help you with your post-Brexit removal to Croatia and advise you on the basic paperwork required by the customs officials; however the documents have to be completed by you to be valid.

We will only be able to collect your goods after receiving the following documents:

  • A copy of ID card or Passport.
  • A certificate from the local council in Croatia 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.

Other than the documents above you will also need to fill out the CMR form but you will receive it from our driver on the day of your move.

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

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

How to prepare:

There’s a British Army saying that’s equally useful for anyone moving home: Proper planning prevents poor performance. When packing your belongings, make sure you: protect furniture by covering or placing padding on it and secure loose items by placing them in boxes or suitcases.

If you need materials for packing, you can check out our online store where you’ll find heavy-duty shrink wrap and protective blankets.

How long do the removals to Croatia take to complete?

It’s really quick actually. Once the driver has loaded all your belongings into the van, he will drive straight for your new home. The typical length journey from the UK to Croatia is just 36 hours, so you’ll be sitting on that comfy sofa again in no time.

  • For moves from Wales or Scotland, travel times can take up to 48 hours.
  • With orders that are smaller than the full capacity of the removal vehicle (<15 cubic meters), delivery can take up to 5 days. For more details, please click here.

How to find the cheapest removals to Croatia from the UK

Are you planning a move from the UK to Croatia? You’ll need an international removals company who can transport your possessions safely into Europe, and deliver them to your new home. VanOne knows that many people search on Google and the other search engines for cheap house removals. However, we also know that this method of finding removal companies could actually cost you more.

Here’s why:

  • Middleman services and price comparison sites often rank more highly than national and local businesses. These sites generate leads and pass those leads onto third party companies – for a fee. Your ‘cheap’ removals to Croatia deal could actually cost more, as those commission charges are usually passed onto the customer.
  • Contacting a removals company like VanOne for your house and flat removals to Croatia is actually the best way to get a competitive price, with no hidden fees.

Avoid the middleman fees when booking your Croatia move

Learn how to spot a genuine removals company from a middleman’s lead generation ite, and you could save a fortune on your move to Croatia. VanOne has some tips so you can tell the real businesses from the fake ones.

  • Does the business appear on the Companies House database? This UK service lists all registered companies, so a genuine international removals firm will be found here.
  • Are the images on the company’s website real, or from a stock image library? Removals companies such as VanOne will use their own photographs of their actual staff and vehicles, so you can see who will complete your Croatia move for you.

How to find the safest international removals to Croatia

Moving to Croatia is cheaper when you contact the removals specialists at VanOne directly, and it can also be safer for your possessions. Third party removals firms used by middleman companies are often shipping and haulage firms, who treat your goods as cargo. Everything may be frequently unloaded and loaded at different locations before it arrives with you. This increases the chance that something may be lost or damaged. VanOne travels directly from your UK house to your new home in Croatia, minimising the risk. We also have comprehensive Goods in Transit insurance, giving you additional peace of mind.

Easy, Safe & Cheap:

We provide a simple and efficient removal service to our customers, but we don’t stop there. All our customers are special, so to make sure your house move goes without a hitch, we abide by three core values. What they mean to you is, your move will be easy because of our great service. It will be safe because of us taking care with your possessions. Finally, it will be cheap because we believe in charging fair prices. What more could you want? Click for a quote right away.
