Hungary International Moving Services

When an individual or a company moves their property and valuables from one country to another, the process is called relocation. Relocation or international moving is often characterized by long and sometimes complex processes. This brings about the need for international moving services provided by professional moving companies. If you would like to ship a car to Hungary or move to your new office or apartment, you can have a stress-free experience after hiring the services of a qualified moving company.

How Much Does It Cost to Move to Hungary?

The cost of moving internationally to Hungary (HU) can range anywhere from $2,000-$12,000 depending on various factors such as the move size, total distance, route, transportation method, and current market trends.

Housing has a considerable influence on the costs associated with shipping goods internationally. The price range for a two-bedroom apartment in Budapest is approximately $3,700- $6,300, while the price range for a four-bedroom apartment is roughly $9,600- $15,800. Other aspects that will determine the final price include the attorney's fees, the customs and tax fees, the cost of moving insurance, the cost of a visa, the shipping rates, any additional services, and the cost of storage:

Custom Duties and Taxes

In addition to shipping charges, you may be responsible for customs duties and taxes if you move items by air or water. You'll be charged based on the total cost of the things you're shipping. The majority of domestic goods are exempt from customs duty. In most countries, secondhand household products are exempt from customs duty. Some countries, on the other hand, may charge customs fees on newly purchased items that are being transported.

Moving Insurance

International moves, like those inside the United States, are usually covered by a free insurance policy. Keep in mind, though, that the free coverage is, at best meager.

Damaged or missing items are likely to be replaced or mended for pennies on the dollar, if at all possible. The best course of action is nearly always to get additional insurance (value) like Full-Value Replacement Coverage, which gives you various deductible options to select from. Determining whether or not to disclose a figure lower than or equal to your shipment's total cost is also critical.

Storage

The use of storage space is yet another consideration when making an international move. Traveling is an option for some people who are moving abroad for the first time. For this reason, individuals frequently store their goods while on the road. If the new house is still under construction, more storage may be required. According to the size of the unit, storage might cost as much as $200 to $400 each month. A climate-controlled unit could further add to this cost.

Duties levied by Hungarian customs on household goods

If you have a valid Resident Permit, then Hungarian customs allows you to import your shipment of household items without paying duty. You will need to put up a Bank Guarantee, if your Resident Permit is good for less than 12 months (1). You are required to either take the goods out of the country when your permit expires, or have them go through customs clearance again (at which point you’ll have to pay duties) (2).

Paperwork called for by Hungarian customs

Customs will ask to see a comprehensive inventory for all the items in your shipment, and this must include values and be written in English. A valid Resident Permit, Work Permit, registration card or Hungarian ID also must be shown. Your Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill and a packing list should be filed as well. You’re also required to provide documentation that demonstrates residency in a non-EU country for the last 12 months. Finally, your passport and a Bank Guarantee (if needed) are obligatory paperwork (3).

Duties levied by Hungarian customs on vehicles

The International Association of Movers doesn’t mention duty exemption for vehicles, saying only that the rate is based upon the origin country for the vehicle (4). However, other informed sources disagree, stating that you can receive duty exemption. To be eligible, the vehicle must have a catalyzer installed - and you’re also required to show a valid Residence Permit (5).

Vehicles are also required to submit to an inspection, to ensure the vehicle meets Hungary’s environmental and emissions standards. All vehicles also must adhere to Europe’s required technical benchmarks (6).

Paperwork required for vehicles

You must provide the vehicle’s registration and title, issued from the origin country. Your driver’s license, passport, Work Permit and/or Residence Permit are also required. You must file a Power of Attorney, to enable an international shipping company like A1 Auto Transport to help your vehicle pass through customs clearance.

Proof of liability coverage is also mandatory, and this isn’t available for vehicles manufactured in the U.S. A Declaration of Auto that verifies certain key details, such as the model and mechanical condition, is also necessary (7).

A number of other documents must be filed, when shipping household goods and vehicles into Hungary. There are also additional regulations, which aren’t covered above. Therefore, it is critical that you discuss your upcoming move with Hungarian customs - to learn all the requirements you’ll face during customs clearance

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
