Duties you’ll face when moving to Ireland

Customs will allow you to bring your household goods into the country without paying duty, as long as you’ve owned them for a minimum of six months. If you’re coming from a non-EU country, then you also must have been living there for at least the last year. You also must be planning to stay in the country for at least the next 185 days. Your shipment can arrive up to one full year after you move to Ireland, or six months before establishing your residency there. Finally, you can’t intend to sell these goods during your stay (1).

Documents you’ll need when moving to Ireland

Customs will request your lease or purchase contract and a full packing list. You also must provide a TOR 1 Form, which is also called the Transfer of Residency. In order to prove that you lived outside of the country for the required 12 months, you must submit documentation for this purpose. Your past utility bills and a bank statement should also be included in your paperwork.

Your passport and Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill are needed as well. A valid Resident Permit, Work Permit and/or Letter of Employment should also be shown (2).

Duties you’ll face when importing your vehicle

If you’ll be transferring your residence (TOR) to Ireland, then your vehicle is eligible for duty-exempt import (3). This isn’t the only prerequisite, however, as other conditions apply. First, the vehicle must be brought into Ireland no later than one year after transferring your residence. You also must have owned and personally used the vehicle for a minimum of the last six months. Finally, you’ll be required to keep the vehicle for the next year - as you cannot sell it for 12 full months after duty-exempt importation (4).

Documents you’ll need when importing your vehicle

If you’ll be importing a vehicle into Ireland, certain paperwork must be submitted. This includes proof of insurance and the vehicle’s Bill of Sale or purchase invoice. Your passport and the Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill are also mandatory documentation. The registration for the vehicle, which was issued in your origin country, should also be given to customs (5).

These lists of paperwork, regulations and fees are not exhaustive - so it’s best that you consult Irish customs before moving.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

Make your international move easier by acting upon the following tips:

  • Your goods will be handled frequently and you therefore need to package them well. Boxing or crating them are among the packaging options currently available for different types of goods.
  • Prepare your documents well in advance so as to enable easy processing.
  • Liaise with the moving company. Establish a good relationship with them and keep the communication channels open. It is also good to make your payment as soon as possible to enable the moving company act upon your order.

Why you need a professional moving company when relocating overseas

International moving requires you to undertake many tasks such as visa applications, packing and unpacking, document preparation and transportation of your goods, just to mention a few. Hiring the services of a professional moving company will enable you lessen this burden. Your relocation process will be made that much easier since you will be provided with all the support you need.

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!
