Moving to Denmark from India

Did you know that the Danish flag, the Dannebrog, is over 800 years old? Denmark has had the same flag flying over its country for longer than any other country in the world. Famous for the concept of “hygge”, the Danish people have found creative means of staying warm and cozy during Denmark’s long and dark winters. 

Coming from India, you will need to acclimate to a vastly different climate, but you should find the Danish people to be welcoming and helpful. Denmark is, after all, one of the happiest countries in the world. This guide is intended to give you the basics of moving your household from India to Denmark. 

Moving and Shipping Household Goods 

There are multiple ways to ship your household goods to Denmark. You can choose air, sea, rail, or road, depending on your budget and timeline. Air freight is quickest and most expensive. Sea freight is the cheapest and can also take the longest.  That said, the difference is shipping time is a matter of days, making sea freight a better option for most consumers. 

Be advised that you should pay close attention to customs regulations and allowances in the country. Make sure to establish your legal residence in Denmark before importing your items if you hope to avoid paying duty and taxes on your belongings. 

Customs Regulations in Denmark 

As with all countries, Denmark’s import rules have rules about who may import goods and how they may import goods. Here are the general guidelines governing imports to Denmark: 

  • You must already be in the country when your items arrive.
  • You will need to be officially registered as a resident of Denmark in order to import your goods duty and tax-free.
  • You must complete all of your imports within one year of your move to Denmark. The items that you import must be at least six months old.

To avoid delays, make sure you have the following with you:

  • Valid ID and Passport
  • A complete, itemized inventory of all your imported goods, either in Dutch or English
  • Proof of residence in Denmark
  • Permits for restricted items, if necessary

Danish Customs Allowances  

Since you are moving to Denmark from India, your imports will be taxed and subject to excise duties if they exceed the following benchmarks for value:  

  • $480 USD if shipped by air or sea
  • $330 USD if shipped by other means

This means that you will almost certainly have to pay customs and duty, unless your shipment is very small.  

Can I Bring My Pets?

Pets brought into Denmark from outside of the EU will need to be checked at an official Traveler’s Point of Entry. Here, you will present documentation regarding your pet, to include proof of ownership. Denmark has a list of 13 breeds of dogs that are excluded from importation, including some you may not have thought of. Make sure you check the rules before attempting to bring your pet with you into Denmark.  

A-1 Auto Transport has the Answers You Need

Moving internationally can be stressful. It isn’t only the packing – it’s the process of creating a detailed inventory, completing the proper paperwork, and making sure you have everything you need to declare your goods. All of this in a language that isn’t your own, in a strange and new culture. The worst part is when you end up paying more than you expected in duties or taxes or have to surrender or send back household items that are not permitted. 

Avoid all that mess by contacting A-1 Auto Transport for a free, no-obligation shipping quote. Our dedicated team of international shipping experts will work closely with you to get you where you need to go, with as little hassle as possible.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!
★★★★★

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
