Moving to Denmark is likely to be a big culture shock so it’s a good idea to research as much as you can about the country before you arrive. This guide to removals to Denmark will give you valuable information about your removal and help you decide how to prepare before you leave.
If you are organising a removal to any country overseas, it’s always a good idea to choose an international moving company which has experience in the region. Moving to Denmark means different road networks and weather conditions. Navigating abroad can be challenging, and the last thing you want is a delay in receiving your removal.
Europeans deciding on their removals to Denmark have a relatively easy removal to look out for as Denmark is part of the EU. There aren’t any cumbersome import restrictions other than on the usual items such as firearms, explosives etc. A European moving firm will be experienced in Danish customs and their requirements and will be ideally placed to give you any advice you need as you prepare to leave.
If your removal comes from further afield, there are some customs restrictions to be aware of, but in general, these aren’t as strict as many other countries. Medicine must be for personal use and approved by the Danish Health Authority, plus there are alcohol and tobacco limits too before duty applies.
At the time of booking your removal company, also schedule-in a rental housing agency. It will help find accommodation, especially if your Danish language skills are weak. Click here for one of the largest rental housing portals.
Because of the risk to native flora, removals to Denmark must obtain permission for plants, and can only bring in dry or canned foods (securely contained within the shipment). Antiques and art require paperwork to be exempt from duty but may be subject to a VAT charge of up to 25% of their value.
