Customs duties on household belongings

Duty-free import of household goods is available, provided you purchased these items more than six months ago. You also won’t be permitted to sell them within Poland, during the first year that you live there. In addition, customs mandates that you export all duty-free items, once your Work Contract is up (1). Another sources states that staying in Poland for over six months, is also necessary to receive duty exemption (2).

It also appears that value-added tax (VAT) will still apply to duty-free shipments, though this isn’t entirely clear. If VAT is imposed on your goods, the current rate is 22% of the shipment’s value (3).

Global Moving Companies

Required paperwork for household belongings

You will need the Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill, passport and a valid Letter of Employment. If you’ll be working for a different company within Poland, then a letter from your last employer will also be required. A full packing list and a Residence Permit should be presented as well. A Work Permit may also be required, though this seems to vary based upon your country of citizenship.

Customs will request a comprehensive inventory as well, which should bear your signature and be written in Polish (4). Further documents are also mandatory, including registration papers for your employer, a Bank Guarantee, customer statement and Power of Attorney (if a third party will be working with customs on your behalf) (5).

Customs duties on vehicle imports

According to one knowledgeable source, duties can be waived when bringing a vehicle into Poland. There are many requisites to receive this exemption, such as living in the country for a minimum of the next six months. The vehicle also must have been purchased more than six months ago, and you’re required to have registered it in your origin country. If duty-free import is granted, then you’re prohibited from selling the vehicle for the next 12 months. If the vehicle is less than six months old, then excise tax and VAT will be incurred (6).

Movers In International City

Required paperwork for vehicle imports

You must show the vehicle’s title and registration, as well as a purchase receipt. Other documents confirming your ownership should be provided, along with a valid Residence Permit. An inventory for the vehicle shipment is needed as well, and customs will request a declaration for used vehicles (7).

Also required are your insurance policy and a valuation that’s been signed by you (8). A Certificate of Origin and your driver’s license should be included in the packet that you submit to customs. Finally, the year of registration, chassis number, make and model are to be listed on the shipment inventory (9).

Though this overview provides you with much of the information necessary when passing through Polish customs - it isn’t definitive. In the end, only customs can supply you with the latest regulations, policies and filing requirements. For this reason, you’re advised to speak with them about your particular shipments, before relocating to Poland.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

Start early

Indeed, starting early will help you avoid unnecessary delays especially, with customs departments. Most international movers advise their clients to begin preparations about three months to the day of moving. With such a timeframe, you will be able to cater to issues that take time such as applying for a visa and a passport.

Additionally, packing is at the center of your moving arrangements. Ensure that you go through your items and get rid of those things that you will not need. Also, pack your belongings according to sizes to save on space. Label your boxes so as to identify your valuables when loading them to avoid breakages since different items do not weight the same.

Valid Us Passport

Visa, passport, and other documents

Make certain that you have a valid US passport. Also, apply for a longer-stay visa if planning to stay for more than 90 days. This is because, under the Schengen agreement, you do not need a visa for the first three months, as a US citizen, traveling to Poland.

Also, find out if you need other forms of documentation such as a work permit.

Reach out to people

Definitely, if you know someone in Poland, it will be easy for you to settle-in. Such people will help you by giving you important information such as those regarding the business environment, local cultures, rules and regulations. Similarly, you can join online groups and forums and engage with their members to know more about your soon-to-be home.

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!
