International Movers USA to Ireland

Overseas Moving Companies United States to Ireland

International Moving, international movers USA to Ireland

Almost 10% of the U.S. population identifies as Irish-American, which adds up to roughly 32 million Americans. This number is almost eight times the number of Irish people living in Ireland in total.

Ireland itself is divided, in a way. The island of Ireland is an independent nation, whereas Northern Ireland is a “partition” of the United Kingdom, in which citizens can choose to become Irish citizens, but are not considered Irish citizens by fact of birth. Culturally, you can see strong representations of both Irish and English culture in Northern Ireland.

When it comes to moving to Ireland with your personal belongings, one of the questions that come to mind is that of cost and what options are avalable for such moves. The options available are air freight and ocean freight. Air freight is for light, sensitive items and personal effects while ocean freight is for the bulk of items which can amount to half or full container load.

The cost of moving from the U.S. to Ireland will vary depending on the location of your departure and arrival ports. The cost of shipping container movers from New York to Ireland is between $6,800-$9,300. A similar move from Los Angeles will cost between $8,300 – $11,200. Shipping costs will also be determined by whether you choose a service from your home port to a destination port or a door-to-door service to move your shipping container. You check the websites of international relocation companies to get free online quote just to have an idea.

Moving your household goods to Ireland

If you have owned your household goods for at least six months, you can import them to Ireland tax and duty-free. You will be required to provide a lot of paperwork when you arrive for customs clearance, including the documents listed below.

  • S. Passport with at least six months left before expiration
  • Irish work permit
  • Proof or residence in Ireland
  • Proof that you have quit your residence in the U.S.
  • Bill of Lading
  • Detailed, box-by-box inventory of your imported goods

Importing a vehicle to Ireland

Moving a vehicle to Ireland from the U.S. can be complex. Not only do you have to manage the paperwork and the customs declaration, but you must also figure out how to get your vehicle altered so that it can be safely driven in Ireland. Modifications are needed to qualify your vehicle for homologation, which is a term used to describe the process of getting your vehicle approved for entry. For North American vehicles, you will need extensive modifications to convert your car so it may be driven on the left side of the road. A qualified mechanic will make changes to your acceleration, braking, and even steering. 

international relocation, moving overseas with your car

When your vehicle arrives in Ireland, you are required to be physically present for the Ireland customs declaration process. Your vehicle’s book value will be used to calculate your VRT (vehicle registration tax) and VAT (value added tax). VAT is calculated at a rate of 21% of your car’s value, so be prepared for this expense.

The best way to anticipate expenses for your overseas move is to work with an international shipping company and relocation services. They have the knowledge and expertise to forecast what your move will cost, enabling you to make more informed choices.

Customer Reviews

I just wanted to say thank you so much for the great help with our move. We have so much stuff and I was really worried about being able to take the time off work to pack and get everything moved and unpacked. Three Movers saved the day! Your men showed up and had our house and garage packed fast and even put everything in the precise room at the new house. You saved me a great deal of time and saved my family a lot of money! Thanks so much!

Annette P.
