Moving to Belgium

If you are planning to relocate to Belgium, then we have a wealth of useful information that will make the process easier. To start with, Belgium is far more than French Fries, almost countless types of beer and delicious chocolate. As well as being the hub of the European Union, this tiny nation has a wide range of cultures and has three different languages: French, Dutch, and Flemish. But here we are concerned more with the practicalities of moving there.
Moving overseas to Belgium requires a substantial amount of planning, but with the right international removals company to help you, there is no reason why the whole process shouldn’t go smoothly. Here we will review some of the necessary logistics of the operation.
Transportation and logistics of shipping to Belgium
There are various ways of moving to a new house to Belgium, and the best one for you will depend on a range of factors including your timescale and budget. If your company is funding your move, then you are likely to be more flexible about costs than if you are financing it yourself, but either way, it might cost less than you imagine. International removal companies are competitive, so you should enjoy a reasonable amount of leverage if you shop around.
However, we don’t recommend that you chase the lowest quote if that compromises the quality of service you will receive. It is more important to safely relocate to Belgium with all your possessions intact than save a little money. A reputable international haulage company will always prioritise moving you to Belgium safely and efficiently. Let’s look at some of the choices available to you.

Air freight to Belgium

By far the fastest way to move house to Belgium is air freight. Most expatriate Brits move to Brussels, Belgium’s capital city, and freighting your goods to Brussels International Airport is fast and efficient. However, it is an expensive option so many people use air freight for essential items that they need immediately and use alternative transportation such as road haulage or sea freight for other items.

Sea Freight to Belgium

Sea freight to Belgium using single or shared containers is an economical option if you aren’t in a hurry and can wait a little time before your shipment arrives. Your international removals company will be able to advise you and the various options that are available. Usually, a 20-foot container will take around ten pallet loads while a 40-foot container will accommodate around 22 full pallets.

Usually, your sea freight to Belgium quotation will include pick up from your current location, customs clearance fees, ocean freight, and the final delivery to your new home.
Road freight to Belgium

Road haulage to Belgium is both efficient and economical; moving house from the UK to Belgium it’s not very different from moving to a new home to any UK destination. You can either pack your possessions yourself or arrange for your removals company to pack them for you. Your belongings and household items will be loaded onto a van and transported to Belgium via a ro-ro ferry, then onward to your destination. One your shipment arrives it will be unloaded into your new home.

Where in Belgium Can I Send my Items?

There are no real restrictions about where to send you items. Most expats move to Brussels, but some prefer the more picturesque locations such as Antwerp, Waterloo, Ghent, or Tervuren. There are also outlying towns and cities with excellent transport links to the main conurbations giving you an excellent commute and lower property purchase and rental prices. Whatever your choice, your shipment can be delivered there either directly or from an airport or seaport.

Belgium has several ports. The main seaports are Antwerp, Bruges/Zeebrugge, Ghent, and Ostend. The principal airports are Brussels Charleroi, Brussels-Zaventem, Ostend, Antwerp, and Liege. Brussels-Zaventem is by far the busiest.

Customs and excise in Belgium

As long as the UK remains within the EU, you are free to move your belongings to Belgium tax and duty-free. However, post-Brexit there could be changes to check back here to see how they could affect your move. You should ensure that your passport is valid for at least six months from your entry date though depending on the final UK EU deal, after 31 December 2020 you may need to apply for a visa and work permit. Note that under current regulations you should register your residency at your local town hall within eight days.
For non-European residents, moving your household goods and personal possessions to Belgium will pose no problem if you have lived for at least twelve consecutive months outside Europe and that you have owned the items for at least six months before your move date. You can also import a motor vehicle tax-free; pets are welcome too.

Accommodation in Belgium

If you are yet to find appropriate accommodation in advance of your planned home move to Belgium, then the good news is that buying and renting in Brussels and other main cities tend to be easier than in similar cities in the UK. Tenancy agreements are somewhat different than in the UK. The most common is a nine-year tenancy, though short term tenancies of 3 or fewer years are more popular amongst British expats.

If you are buying property, then the average price of an apartment is around 150,000 euros, and the price of a three bedroom detached house is around 280,000 euros. Naturally, prices are higher in the main cities. The most expensive region is the Brussels-Capital where the typical price of a detached house is 830,000 euros.

Removals from Belgium back to the UK

If you are coming to the end of time in Belgium, then you are likely to be interested in arranging removals from Belgium back to the UK. That should pose no problems at all; you can arrange to complete your move back home with companies such as Removals.co.uk, who are experts at handling home moves to and from Belgium.
