How much does it cost to move from the UK to Ireland with MyCheapRemovals?
The cost of your removal to Ireland depends on two main factors: the volume of your belongings and the distance between your old and new homes.
In terms of volume, we offer two types of removals: small (5 and 10 cubic meters of volume) and large (15, 20 and 30 cubic meters).
For example, if you are moving from London to Dublin, a small removal (5 cubic meters) would cost £1169. If you are moving the contents of a house (minimum 15 cubic meters), prices would start from £1919.
Please keep in mind this, to book a removal service with MyCheapRemovals, we are asking for only 10% of the deposit.
How long does it take for my belongings to arrive in Ireland?
Delivery times from the UK to Ireland vary depending on the chosen volume. Dedicated 15, 20, and 30 cubic meter options typically take 1 -2 days, while part-load options (5 m3 and 10 m3) may take up to 3 days. This is because part-load options require you to share the loading capacity with other customers, which can increase delivery times.
For dedicated options, the loading capacity of the van is at your exclusive disposal. The goods once loaded go straight to the delivery address, without any additional stops. In this option, you can expect delivery even 48 hours after the collection.
5, 10, and 15 cubic meters would work for customers who opt for smaller removals. Obviously, these volume options are way cheaper. However, it requires a 3-day slot for collection and might slightly postpone the delivery which may take up to 72 hours.

Can I move to Ireland with my pet?
Yes, it is possible to take your pet with you when you move to Ireland from the UK.
However, it is highly important to arrange the essential paperwork and choose the pet-friendly means of transport.
Required documents for moving from a non-EU country with your pet, are as follows (please note – because of Brexit, all non-EU requirements also apply to UK pet owners as of 2020):
- Microchip or tattoo identification issued before 2011
- European pet passport
- Vaccination against rabies
- Pets from certain countries need to have a blood test for rabies (serological test) too.
- Declaration to state that the relocation of the pet is for non-commercial purposes
You must bring the original test certificate, or a copy received from the lab, with you when you come to Ireland.
If the blood test is taken in a non-EU country, the three-month waiting period will always apply.
If your pet is travelling to another EU country first and you have a check there, then your pet does not need another check on entry into Ireland. If however, you entered another EU country and were unable to arrange a check to be carried out there, you must arrange a compliance check on arrival into Ireland.
