Expats will find plenty of shipping and removal services to Ireland, particularly to Dublin. The large marketplace of competition can often help to lower prices, thus expats should take care to get more than one quote.


Shipping goods to Ireland

Expats from European Union countries can easily bring their cargo into Ireland with few restrictions. Although expats from countries outside the EU face some duty restrictions, foreigners seeking residence in Ireland can import most of their household goods duty-free. This allowance is limited to a time frame of six months before the move and 12 months after. Motor vehicles are included in duty-free imports for resident expats.

It is recommended to take out movers' insurance for any items of value being shipped to Ireland.

For expats moving with their animals, there are a number of specific requirements in place to relocate with pets to Ireland
