Removals to Norway obey slightly different rules to the classic European removals due to its status as EEA member. If you’re moving to Norway, there are also many things to discover about the country. Have a look at what awaits you in this land of Scandinavian beauty, to help prepare for your move.
The most northerly country in Europe, Norway is a small country with a population of around five million.
Although on the same latitude as Greenland, Siberia and Alaska, it tends not to be quite as cold. The Gulf Stream warms up the south-west coast, but inland and the north get much colder. In the winter temperatures plunge to way below freezing. In the summer, expect long days of continuous sunlight and long, hot days even in the north!
Norway isn’t part of the EU so has retained its currency, the krone. 100 ore make a single krone, also known as NOK or KR.
If you’re relocating from an EU country, the process of moving can be relatively simple, particularly when it comes to passing through customs. For international movers coming from further afield, there’s typically a bit more to arrange before your possessions arrive at your new home.
Norway isn’t part of the EU, and everyone needs to go through a more complicated process when transporting their items. Both international moving firms and European removals have to navigate customs in the same way.
Norway is part of the EEA, but not part of the customs union, so it is free to decide on its tariff. Hence why Norway removals need an expert team of experienced professionals.
