Delivery time

As Portugal is about 1,500 miles away from the UK, the average journey usually takes between 36 and 72 hours. However, the exact delivery time depends on the volume you choose.

20m3 and 30m3 – large removals options – are the quickest to deliver, as the van once loaded goes straight to your delivery address. In this case, the delivery might be expected even two days after the collection.

Smaller, part-load volume options, such as 5, 10 and 15 cubic meters may be delivered to the final destination up to three days after the collection. These volume options slightly postpone the delivery, as they might include other pick-ups. Nevertheless, the idea of joining your removal with someone else immensely contributes to the final quote.

Next steps

Having learnt the time schedules for collecting different volume options, and knowing the size of your load, you can finally book a removal to the UK.

As soon as your booking appears in the system, you will receive the confirmation email from our Customer Service representative, with the blank inventory list attached. If you have not prepared the list of the items yet, you will be advised to use the document and prepare one now. This document is essential for both insurance and customs purposes.

Customs Clearance

As you intend to move to a country that is not an EU member, we will need to receive a set of documents for customs clearance. The documents for the removals to the UK include:

Now, if you have not purchased the materials essential to pack your items, that would be the next step to consider. You may find it helpful to read up on our articles concerning the necessary packing materials and tips for packing.

As you are packing your goods, it would be a good idea to compare it with the initial inventory list and make some amendments. Making an exhaustive inventory of your belongings is essential to establish a value statement.

The inventory list, together with the rest of the documents for customs should be sent to us at least three days before the planned collection date or slot.

Our Customer Service Representative will contact you at least one day before the collection to confirm the information about the date and time of collection and delivery, addresses, and payment.

Romania is known worldwide because of its historical region, Transylvania, which served as an inspiration for the setting of Bram Stoker’s critically-acclaimed novel, Dracula. But apart from its association with vampires, Romania is home to a number of majestic castles and prominent natural landscapes. People moving to Romania for employment purposes are required to obtain a working visa from the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection, together with a copy of a work contract from their Romanian employer.

Romania is an intriguing option for emigrants seeking work in Eastern Europe: it might not be your first choice but it is definitely worth considering, as the country is the new home to some big multinationals, has a relatively low cost of living, and a current low rate of unemployment which suggests that the economy is reasonably healthy.
