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.

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

Tips on how to make your international move easier

The following handy tips can help you make your international move easier:

  • Research: Find out the visa and shipping requirements that will enable you move to Hungary. There are also informative sources such as the US Department of Transportation (USDOT) website which you can make the most use of.
  • Packaging: Your goods will be moved and stored at various points and you therefore need to package them well to make their handling easier.
  • Document preparation: Apply, fill and prepare the required documents way in advance and present them for processing as and when required.
  • Liaise with the moving company: Establish a good relationship with the moving company and clearly communicate your expectations so that they may make the required actions.

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!
