Moving to Ireland

Wisse Moving is an international removals specialist with offices in Spain. We can take care of moving to Ireland from Spain. Our services are door-to-door, and include packaging. For a move to Ireland from Spain there is no customs clearance to be done, as both countries are members of the European Union. We will prepare a free, detaled proposal for your move. If required we take care of packaging, and we can also store your goods temporarily in Spain or in Ireland. Transport insurance is available for all services we carry out.

Free proposal for moving to Ireland

The first thing to do when you are moving to Ireland is to contact a professional mover and get a clear idea of the budget. Wisse Moving makes a detailed proposal in writing for all moves we carry out. When you contact us we will make an appointment for a pre-move survey. The pre-move survey is normally done by video call. You can download an app (normally we use Google Meet) on your smartphone, and show one of our consultants all the goods you want to move. The consultant will estimate the volume of the goods, and will also bear in mind any packaging to be done.

Apart from the volume of the move and the packaging, other relevant factors are the moving dates, the access situations and whether storage is required. The quote will be free of charge and will clearly specify all the inclusions and exclusions of the service.

Methods for moving to Ireland

By sea container or part-load container

As Ireland is an island, we usually carry out moves from Spain by sea container or part-load sea container. Both methods are equally safe, and the desicion whether to use one a sea container or to do a part-load is merely economical.

  • Sea Container or Full Container Load (FCL). We pack and collect your move anywhere in Spain, and load the goods into a sea container. The sea container will be transported by a container ship from Spain to Ireland. In Ireland we deliver to your new residence. Often it is not possible to place a container at a residence for loading and unloading, in which cases we will do the loading or unloading at our warehouses. We have storage facilities in Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia, Alicante, Málaga, Palma de Mallorca and Gran Canaria. In Ireland we can also deliver through the warehouse in Dublin, Cork or Limerick, and store the goods temporarily if required.
  • Part-load container, shared container or LCL. If you don’t have many goods, and no or only some small furniture, then we might decide to use only part of a container. We would pack and collect the goods at your residence in Spain, crate them at one of our warehouses into a “liftvan”, and ship in a sea container together with other goods. A liftvan is a multilayer, cardboard crate. This liftvan is light weight, very resistant, economical and is adaptable in size. It is a very good solution for smaller moves.

Moving by truck

Other options for your move to Ireland are to transport the goods by a moving truck. In the Summer season we sometimes can combine several moves into one large moving truck and transport your goods in this way.

Depending on the costs of transport and availability, and if you don’t have many goods, we might also decide do the transport by truck. This is basically the same option as transporting in a part-load sea container, but instead of going by sea, we transport by truck and ferry. We would also crate the goods into a liftvan in this way. Whatever option we use to carry out your move, we will find the fastest and safest way. We adapt everything to your needs and preferences!

    Perfect service. Moved work items and home contents Barcelona to Lanzarote. Professional, calm plus accurate information (this move involves boat transport and customs). Zero drama. Nothing missing, nothing broken and kept to agreed times … More and budget. All of this during the Covid problems, and at the last minute as another 2 companies couldn't handle the move. Thank you René, yes I would absolutely reccomend this company.

    In almost thirty years of intercontinental moves along the ex-pat trail with many of the biggest names in the business I have never had better service than Wisse Moving. From the first contact, and initial video call with René to assess … More our move, to the last box unloaded in our new city they were the most professional, friendly and courteous moving company we have ever used. Hurdles that would have had many movers hand the issue over to us were ironed out and always in good nature and patience. I can't say enough good about these guys and without a shadow of doubt we will be using them on our next move. The absolute gold standard.

    We used Wisse Moving for an international service with 2 locations to pick up in Spain and deliver to the US. The service and attention was excellent. We had many fragile items, including several glass pieces. The packing was perfect and … More they delivered on time and with no surprises. We highly recommend Wisse Moving.Servicios: Empaquetado y desempaquetado, Mudanzas de larga distancia


Packaging of boxes

For a move to Ireland we always take care of wrapping the furniture in such a way that it will arrive in the best conditions to its destination. For boxes we offer two options:

  • Wisse Moving takes care of everything. On the moving day, our crew of packers comes to your home with all the necessary materials. We pack all the small items into boxes. You don’t have to do anything, we take care of it all. You don’t have to worry about purchasing boxes and other packing materials beforehand; everything is included in the price. You safe yourself a lot of time and headaches. Especially for busy clients and families with children things can’t be made any easier. A bonus of letting Wisse Moving take care of the packaging is that you can be sure that everything will be done professionally. Having the packaging done is not very expensive. The extra costs will be more than compensated with the time you safe yourself!
  • You can pack your own boxes. This option might be suitable for people who are handy, and have lots of spare time.

Wisse Moving can detail the rates for both options. Just give us a call or send us an email, whatsapp or chat message. We’d be delighted to organise your move!
