How much does moving from the UK to Italy cost?

The cost of removals to Italy depends on the volume and distance of the move. In terms of volume, we offer two types of removals: small (5-10 cubic meters) and large (15-30 cubic meters).

To give you an idea of the costs of moving for example from London to Italy, we have prepared some quotes. All of the prices are final and include the customs fee and other applicable taxes.

Here are some examples of our prices:

  1. London to Rome:
    • Part-load (5-10 cubic meters): £1,089
    • Full van (15-30 cubic meters): £3,019
  2. London to Milan:
    • Part-load (5-10 cubic meters): £919
    • Full van (15-30 cubic meters): £2,439

For detailed prices, please use our instant removal quote facility – it is no obligation.

How long does it take for my belonging to arrive in Italy?

The delivery from the UK to Italy takes two or three days. However, every move is different, so the duration depends on a variety of factors. Long-distance moving will always take longer than local moving. Also, home moving (full load options – 20 and 30 cubic meters) will take less time than small removals, as it does not require additional stops. However, since the UK is not a member of the EU additional procedures are implemented, that may affect this time. So now the delivery time depends on how long the customs clearance will take. Usually, the delivery time does not change and still takes two or three days.

I’m moving to Italy – what documents do I need?

The documents that you will need to submit to us include the following:

    1. The inventory list includes:
      • total number of items

    What are the living costs in Italy in comparison to the UK?

    Italy has a good healthcare system and a high quality of life. The cost of living is lower than in the UK, as are property and rental prices on average 30% cheaper. This is a contrast to the UK, as the cost of living crisis has impacted the property market and living costs.
    The UK has a high-paced life, which is a complete contrast to the more laid-back culture in Italy. For those looking for a quieter lifestyle, Italy is a perfect location to consider.

    Can I move to Italy with my Pet?

    Pets brought to Italy must have a microchip implanted linked to a pet passport. This is the only form of identification acceptable and must be implanted before the rabies vaccination is administered. All pets must have a Rabies Certificate signed by a vet. Pets need to be at least 12 weeks old to be given a rabies vaccination. You will have to wait 21 days before you take your pet to Italy. Pets can travel to Italy if they have a current one-year vaccination (a primary vaccine). They can also travel with a 3-year vaccine provided it has been administered less than a year before travel. Where you are coming from an ‘unlisted country’ it will also be necessary for the pet to have a blood test.
    Pet owners must arrive within five days of their pet, otherwise, it will be treated as a commercial move, which will involve additional costs and different regulations.


Dreaming of moving to Italy? Great choice! However, which city will be better to live in, Milan or Rome?

Milan is widely considered the coolest city in Italy, and with good reason—it’s a European metropolis that’s in tune with the times, and full of things to see and do. But what’s it like to live in Milan?

Milan is much less touristy than Rome.

If you have to choose between the two, pick Rome for a deep journey into Western civilization history, arts, and a good taste of Italian culture.

Choose Milan to experience modern and business Italy, and if you love the fashion world and luxury lifestyle.

In this article, we will walk you through the main similarities and differences that make Rome and Milan unique. Which city will be triumphant? Read on to find out and make your final choice!

Removals to Italy have never been so simple and cheap. In MyCheapRemovals we bend over backwards to make the whole process as straightforward and cost-effective as possible. So how do we work?


It all starts when our kind and experienced driver appears at your door to offer his assistance with loading your precious goods. His priority is to take some of the work off your shoulders and make the loading process as quick and pleasurable as possible!
