Moving to the UK from Ireland? VanOne can take your possessions over the Irish Sea and deliver them to your new UK home.

Your journey with us:

As soon as our driver arrives at your home, you’ll discover he is friendly and experienced. He’s also trained in heavy lifting, so he’s the ideal person to help you carry your possessions to our state of the art van, and to secure them safely inside. Once he’s packed everything, he’ll set off for Ireland!

Of course you’ll want to know your possessions are safe, so we’ll keep you informed of our progress throughout our journey. Two hours from your door, we’ll call to confirm the estimated arrival time. Two hours later, the same driver who helped you load your belongings will arrive, ready to help you unload them again and carry them into your new home. Sounds easy, doesn’t it? That’s because it is!

Removals to Ireland from UK

What documents do you need to move to Ireland?

In terms of paperwork, removing from the UK to Ireland after Brexit is slightly more complicated than it used to be. Be not afraid, though – your friendly European removalist is here to help. We’ve assembled the list of essential paperwork necessary for the post-Brexit removals, according to the requirements of customs authorities in Ireland. The customs officers will need those documents to grant you the status of “Transfer of Residence”. Failing to attain such status can cause the import VAT (23% of the total value of goods) to be charged.

We will only collect your belongings as Transfer of Residence if the following paperwork is complete:

  • Completed Irish ToR relief form.
  • Identity card or Passport copy.
  • A detailed packing list with the value, size and weight of each listed item. Please fill in all fields provided in VanOne Insurance Form.
  • Scanned proof of your address in Ireland, such as a tenancy agreement or Deimhniú cónaithe (certificate of residence) – if you do not have an address in Ireland, you’ll need to provide a statement from the person you’ll be living with, that is signed by local An Garda Síochána Station (police) and scanned proof of their address.
  • 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 document certifying cessation of living arrangements in the UK. For example a letter from the former landlord or a deed of sale.
  • A document certifying cessation of employment in the UK. For example a p45 form or a letter from the former employer.
  • An employment contract or a letter from the new employer in Ireland.

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.

On the day of your move our driver will also give you a CMR form 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 Ireland.

You can also visit this government resource for more information about bringing personal effects to Ireland.

How to prepare:

There’s a famous saying: To be prepared is half the victory. The same is true is when planning for removals to Ireland. To make sure your possessions are as secure as possible during transit, we recommend you pack loose items in suitcases or boxes, and cover up or place padding on furniture.

If you require packing materials, just pay a visit to our online store where you can order protective blankets and heavy-duty shrink wrap.

How long does the journey to Ireland take?

It’s incredibly quick. Once everything is packed, the driver heads straight for Ireland. The journey takes just half a day, so you’ll be sitting back on that comfortable armchair with a mug of hot chocolate in hand in no time. We make sure removals to Ireland run smoothly and simply.

  • If you are moving from Wales or Scotland, the journey could take up to 26 hours.
  • When a removal vehicle is not loaded to full capacity (<15 cubic meters), it can take up to five days for delivery. Please click here for details.

How to get cheap removals UK to Ireland:

When preparing to move from the UK to Ireland, many people turn to the Internet in the hope of securing the cheapest removals deal. However, it is important to know a few things about the international removals market before you make a decision – otherwise your move to Ireland could end up costing you more, not less!

  • The highest ranking results in Google are often the price comparison sites and middleman services, which refer customers onto removals companies. These services charge commission fees to the removals company – which will be passed on to you for your move.
  • The cheapest removals are found by contacting genuine international removals companies like VanOne directly, as there are no hidden fees or charges.

Avoid middleman costs when arranging removals to Ireland

If you can spot the genuine removals companies from the middleman services, you can secure a great deal without paying extra for the referral. Follow VanOne’s advice and learn to tell the fake brands from the real businesses.

  • A genuine removals brand operating from the UK to Ireland should appear on the Companies House register. Middleman sites use fake company names to create leads, which they pass to other companies. Search the database to find the company name.
  • Check the removals company’s website. Authentic removals brands such as VanOne use real images of their staff and vehicles to advertise their services. On the other hand, a fake brand will usually use stock images sourced from libraries online.

Move safely with a genuine removals team

Middleman referrals can often be extremely risky. Your goods may be passed through a number of different locations and storage depots before they reach your new home in Ireland. When VanOne carries out house removals to Ireland, we always travel directly from Point A to Point B. This reduces the risk of loss or damage. This is so you can be sure your possessions will get back to you safely. For more information and to get your free quote – with no hidden service charges – call VanOne today.
