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

Depending on the chosen volume, the delivery from the UK to Greece usually takes around 3-4 days after the collection. 15, 20 and 30 cubic-metre options are considered dedicated. For dedicated options, the loading capacity of the van is at your exclusive disposal. After pick up the goods go straight to the delivery address, without any additional stops.

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

OK, you have made up your mind to move to Greece and booked the removal service from our company. What comes next? Which documents need to be provided before the move?

No worries, we noted the list of documents and forms needed for the removal.
The required documents are as follows:

  • The inventory list
  • A copy of your passport/ID,
  • Proof of the destination address (current bank statements or credit/debit card statements, current utility bills, rental contract, storage contract etc.),
  • Proof of living in the previous address for the last 12 months. One of these documents should be enough: Council TAX Bill, utility bill showing 12 months old history, payslip for last 12 months, job contract, and Tax Return.
  • Filling in the non-cession document and CERFA form is also required.

Looks pretty scary and complicated, right?
However, it is not that bad.
Place your trust in our service specialists who, no doubt, will do their best to help you with this “mission impossible”.

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

It is beyond dispute that living in the UK is at least costly, if not highly expensive.
There is a plethora of places where living is much more affordable. And for sure, Greece is one of them.
Compared to the UK the living expenses in Greece are around 44% cheaper.
For instance, the average living cost for one person in Greece is £805 vs £1436 you would need to spend living in the UK on your own. The same applies to the family’s living expenses. £1962 in Greece against £3472 in the UK.
Moreover, it is essential to highlight that the exact location also affects the price range.
Nevertheless, to give the issue some justice, the level of Greek salaries is also lower. Just to compare, the average Greek salary after tax is £681, while in the UK you can earn around £2231 after tax per month.

Can I move to Greece with my pet?

Yes, it is possible to take your pet with you when you move to GREECE from the UK. However, organising pet transport to Greece involves research, preparation, and time. Firstly, start preparing all the required documents and choose a pet-friendly way of transport. Required documents for moving from a non-EU country with your pet, are as follows:

  1. Pet Microchip
  2. EU Health Certificate
  3. Rabies Vaccination
  4. Rabies Titre Test
  5. Tapeworm Treatment (dogs only)
  6. EU Pet Passport
