Removals to Slovakia from UK

Documents you’ll need to move to Slovakia:

Relocating from the United Kingdom to Slovakia requires a bit more paperwork, ever since Brexit happened. The reason for that is residential moves between the UK and EU are being processed only under the Transfer of Residence status, which comes with certain requirements from the customs authorities. It boils down to convincing the customs officer that it is indeed a house removal and not a regular import, therefore there is no need to charge you the import VAT rate (which would be 20% of the total value of goods).

To help with that we’ve assembled the basic set of documents that we will need you to supply us with at least a week before we proceed with your relocation:

  • A copy of ID card or Passport.
  • A certificate from the local council in Slovakia 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 listed documents are required prior to collecting your belongings. On the day of your move you will also receive a cargo movement form (the CMR) 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 Slovakia.

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

How to prepare:

There’s a famous saying in the British Army, “Proper planning prevents poor performance.” The same is true when moving home. 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, do check our online store where you’ll be able to order protective blankets and heavy-duty shrink wrap.

How long does the journey to Slovakia take?

The average drive from the UK to Slovakia is just 32 hours, so before you know it you’ll be relaxingin the comfort of your new home.

  • If you are moving from Wales or Scotland, the journey could take up to 48 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 find the cheapest international removals for your move to Slovakia

If you are preparing for a move to Slovakia from the UK, you need a reliable and affordable removals company to take your possessions from A to B. VanOne is a London based removals firm and we can assist with house and flat removals to Slovakia. We want to make sure that you are finding the best possible deal for your move: and not paying extra for middleman services that you do not need.

  • When you search in Google for cheap removals to Slovakia, the highest ranking results are often from price comparison websites and middleman agencies. These may appear to offer great deals, but they actually charge higher fees to cover the middleman’s cut of the costs.
  • It is almost always cheaper to contact a genuine removals company directly, because you only pay for the moving services and there are no hidden fees.

Cut out the middleman fees for your move to Slovakia

If you want to avoid paying too much for your house removals to Slovakia, you need to know how to tell the genuine companies from the fake removals brands. There are several ways you can tell the difference, including:

Checking the Companies House database to see if the business is registered. Genuine international removals firms based in the UK need to be registered, so you can quickly discover if you are dealing with a real company or not.

Visiting the company’s website to check the images. A real company will use images of its own vehicles and staff, while a fake brand will source its images from an online picture library – or via Google Images. Check out the website so you can see for yourself whether the images are authentic.

A safer choice for your UK to Slovakia move

Moving through a middleman service is expensive. It can also be less safe. Your goods may be passed through different logistics centres and depots, raising the chance of something being lost or damaged. As a dedicated removals company, VanOne only takes your goods from Point A to Point B. Be sure your that possessions are protected: choose VanOne for your move to Slovakia. Get in touch now because we could save you money on removals. Finally, we never compromise on quality or safety. This is why we are different from some third party companies.
