Your journey with us:

The journey starts as soon as our experienced, friendly driver arrives. He will help you carry your belongings to our state of the art van. Trained in heavy lifting, he will treat your belongings with care and pack them securely. Then it’s off to Hungary! Of course you’ll want to know your belongings are safe, so we will keep you updated throughout our journey. Two hours from your door, we’ll let you know our estimated arrival time; two hours later, the same driver who helped you load your belongings will be on your doorstep. He will help you unload your belongings and carry them into your new home. Sounds easy? It is!

International Removals to Hungary from UK

Documents you’ll need to move to Hungary:

After Brexit, removals to Hungary from the UK are subject to certain bureaucracy processes. There are official requirements placed on all residential moves, and the only alternative to complying with those requirements is sending your belongings as regular export/import and paying import VAT at the rate of 27% of the total value of goods. To achieve the Transfer of Residence status and tax exemption, the customs authorities in Hungary will need the documents listed below. Keep in mind that requirements for removals after Brexit are still in flux and we will do our best to update this page, but the best source of up-to-date requirements for post-Brexit related paperwork is the Customer Portal.

We can only proceed with your removal after you’ve completed the following paperwork:

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

We will also need a CMR form, but your driver will have it on the day of your move, you’ll just need to help fill it out.

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

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

How to prepare:

There’s a British Army catchphrase that’s just as appropriate for people moving home as it is for soldiers! “Proper planning prevents poor performance.” So to keep your belongings safe and secure, remember to place loose items in suitcases or boxes and to cover or place padding on furniture. For great prices on packing materials such as protective blankets and heavy-duty shrink wrap, just visit our online store.

How long does the journey to Hungary take?

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 Hungary is just 48 hours, so you’ll be sitting on that comfy sofa again in no time.

  • Please note that moves from Scotland or Wales can take longer.
  • Orders smaller than the full loading capacity of the removal vehicle (<15 cubic meters) can take up to 5 days to deliver. For details please click here.

How to get cheap removals to Hungary from the UK:

When people are moving from UK to Hungary, they will turn to the search engines in the hope of finding a great removals deal. Cheap removals are not always what they seem, so beware. Many of the top search results actually come from price comparison websites, or middleman agencies. Their job is to create leads for removals firms – and they take a commission, which pushes up your fee!

However, you can avoid this additional cost by learning how to spot a genuine removals company for your house removals to Hungary. Check out this guide by VanOne removals and find cheap removals to Hungary from the UK.

Avoid the middleman fees when you move from UK to Hungary

You may be wondering how to avoid paying more than you need to for international removals. VanOne will help you spot a genuine removals company, so you can contact them directly and get a fair price for your move.

  • Be sure to search the Companies House database. A genuine UK removals firm will be registered here. If you cannot find evidence that a brand is listed there, it is safer to avoid them and look for another service.
  • A real removals company will use images of their own staff and vehicles, rather than stock images from Google or a photo library. Check for genuine sounding testimonials, staff bios, and other details. The VanOne website is a great example of what to look for.

Choosing a safe and trustworthy removals company for your Hungary move:

As well as the extra cost, using a middleman service can put your belongings at risk. It is far safer to use a real removals company such as VanOne. Agencies and large chains often treat removals like a shipping operation. Your possessions may be passed around several different locations and storage facilities – increasing the chance of damage or loss. VanOne will always take your goods from Point A to Point B, making your Hungary move cheaper, fuss free and simple. Put your trust in our removals team. For removals to Hungary, trust VanOne.

Easy, Safe & Cheap:

We believe you are special; so we want your experience with us to be pleasant and hassle free. The best way to achieve this is by staying true to our three core values. Here are what they mean to you: our fantastically cheap prices mean you can spend the money you save on something you really want, the care we show to your belongings means you can rest assured they will arrive in the same shape they left, and our top notch customer service means you will find the whole process easy.
