Your journey with us:

It starts when our friendly, experienced driver knocks on your door; ready to help you carry your belongings to our state of the art van. Being trained in heavy lifting, he will ensure your items are loaded and secured carefully. Once everything is neatly packed, it’s destination Latvia!

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!

House Removals to Latvia from UK

Documents you’ll need:

Moving to Latvia from the UK is not as straightforward an experience as it used to be before Brexit. Nowadays, all relocations need extensive paperwork in order to prove to the customs authority that the removal qualifies for the Transfer of Residence status – and therefore is eligible for import VAT exemption. Otherwise, a fee of up to 21% of the total value of imported goods can be incurred.

To collect your goods as Transfer of Residence we will need the listed documents:

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

On the day of your move you will also be provided a cargo movement form (CMR) by the driver.

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

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

How to prepare:

There’s a British Army saying that should be taken to heart by anyone moving house: Proper planning prevents poor performance. To keep your belongings safe and secure, remember to:

  • Cover or place padding on furniture.
  • Place your loose items in boxes or suitcases.

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 Latvia take?

The average trip from the UK to Latvia is just 48 hours, so it’s very quick. The driver will simply load the van and head straight for the destination, so it’ll be no time before you’re sitting in that old armchair of yours again drinking a cup of tea.

  • Please be advised, moves from Scotland or Wales may take longer.
  • Orders that are smaller than the loading capacity of the removal van (<15 cubic meters) can take up to 5 days to deliver. For more details please click here.

Get the cheapest deal for UK to Latvia removals

When moving from the UK to Latvia, you want a cheap removals deal. Many people turn to the search engines to find the best deals. If you are looking for cheap Latvia removals options online, here are some things you should know before you start.

  • The top results on Google are often the price comparison sites and middleman agencies: not genuine removals brands.
  • Middleman services often charge additional fees for passing your details onto a removals firm: so you pay more for your move.
  • You can avoid these fees by speaking directly with a real UK based removals company like VanOne. We will carry out your move to Latvia.

Avoiding the middleman fees for a cheap move to Latvia

A cheaper way to move from the UK to Latvia is to contact an international removals firm directly. VanOne has our own staff and our own vehicles, so we can facilitate your move. Here is how you can spot a genuine removals company, and avoid paying extra in middleman fees.

  • Check the company name through the Companies House database. All companies registered in the UK are listed here. Fake removals brands are used by lead generation companies to build and sell customer referrals – which pushes up the price you pay for Latvia removals. These brands will not appear in the company register.
  • Look at the company’s website to determine whether the images are real, or are stock photographs sourced from an online directory. Genuine removals brands like VanOne use images of their actual vehicles and staff to advertise their services.

How to make your UK to Latvia move safer

Another drawback of using middleman companies is the risk to your goods. Goods may be shipped through logistics and haulage services, rather than dedicated removals companies. There may be frequent loading and unloading, and the need for storage at various locations. All of this increases the chance that your goods will be damaged.

VanOne always transports your belongings directly from point A in the UK to point B in Latvia, so you know your goods are being looked after. For flat removals to Latvia and house removals to Latvia by a company you can trust, call VanOne today.
