Moving to the UK from Spain after the Brexit

Many expats are enquiring about moving to the UK from Spain after the Brexit. Both UK citizens as well as people from other nationalities are wondering what the possibilities are for moving.

Customs clearance for importing household goods

Eventhough Great Britain left the European Union in 2020, it is still possible to carry our removals from Spain to the UK. It will be necessary to customs clear the household goods in order to import them into the UK. Wisse Moving will take care of all the customs formalities.

In order to avoid import duties and taxes you will have to apply for a “Transfer of residence Relief”. In case you do not have a Transfer of Residence relief you would pay import duties and taxes.


How to get a quote

In order to get a quote for your move to the UK, we would have to determine the volume of your move, and your preferences. It would be important to know the exact addresses, so we can check the accesses. Furthermore, we would have to know if you would pack your own boxes, or if you want us to take care of this. Wisse Moving offers a full packing service if you prefer not to pack yourself. We can connect anytime by video call to estimate the volume of the goods, and to discuss all the possibilities.

Part-load moving service from Spain

Wisse Moving offer a part-load service between Spain and the UK. There are regular, almost weekly, transports to England. We can collect in Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia, Alicante, Málaga or any other place in Spain. The transport is often done with large trucks, so it is important to know the access situations both at collection as at delivery. In case you live in a city where a large truck cannot get to your residence, we can decide on loading with a shuttle vehicle, or the collect with smaller vans to our warehouse. It is also possible to pack and collect on the day of your choice, and store your belongings temporarily if required. We have crews and warehouses all over Spain, so we can solve almost any situation.

Packaging of boxes and protection of furniture

If required we can take care of packaging your personal items in boxes. We can also disassemble and assemble the furniture, and everything will be well protected in the move to avoid damages. If you have any particularly fragile items like large paintings, we can also prepare wooden crates or special packagings. We can assess your needs in the pre-move survey.

Transport insurance

Our teams and movers are professionals, often with many years of experience. We handle all moves with due care, and we take care of protecting the goods in order to avoid damages. However, in an international move there is always a small possibility that an accident occurs, or that there are damages. For these case we offer a transport insurance. We will inform you about the conditions and premium of transport insurance when we prepare the proposal for your move to the UK from Spain.

    An excellent service by Wisse in organising our move to London. Everything arrived safe with no problems. Very careful handling. René was very professional and very responsive, trying to accomodate dates and all. Will choose them agian … More if need to move. Highly recommended.
  • Paddy Thomas ★★★★★
    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.
