Before making the move to Denmark, you want to ensure you have thoroughly researched the four shipping options. The option you choose will be based on your preferences, requirements and budget.
Here are the shipping freights available:
You can use one of these options or a combination of more than one, depending on your needs.
Sea freight is a common removals method when shipping from the UK to Denmark. It’s not too expensive and you can ship the contents of a house with ease.
Denmark is known for its ports and shipping sector. It’s straightforward to ship your goods into the country. The system is organised and shipping doesn’t take too long.
The main shipping port is the Port of Aarhus, which is situated in Jutland. More than 60% of container traffic goes through this port. Other popular ports include the Port of Copenhagen and Port of Esbjerg.
With sea freight, you pay for a 20ft or 40ft container, instead of it being based on weight. It’s great for those shipping motor vehicles and contents of larger homes as these can be placed in one container.
Sea freight arrival times vary, but it's a slower shipping method. On average, it will take around a week for goods to arrive.
Road freight is one of the most popular methods of shipping from the UK to Denmark. This is due to its cost-effectiveness and speed. Removal companies will use local road and rail networks to transfer your goods as quickly and efficiently as possible.
The Eurotunnel is commonly used. As the roads in Denmark are mainly flat and wide, you shouldn’t run into many issues with the transportation of your goods. Road freight is a reliable option to consider.
It’s easy to transfer the contents of your house via road freight and the majority of removal companies will have a range of different-sized vans to choose from depending on your needs.
The time it takes will vary depending on the type of road freight you choose. On average, it will take around 3-4 days for your household goods to arrive. Express shipping will take anywhere from 1-3 days.
Air freight is useful to consider when shipping furniture overseas if you need them to arrive quickly. Copenhagen Airport is the main flight option when shipping air freight from the UK to Denmark. It’s in a convenient location, and goods can be easily transported to your new home from here.
As air freight is fast and straightforward, it’s the most expensive option to consider. If you need some items sooner than others, you can choose to ship these via air freight. Given that air freight is based on weight, it’s not cost-effective to relocate your entire home using this service.
It will take around 1-3 days for air freight to arrive. While this is quick, it’s comparable to the time it takes for road freight, but it’s more expensive to use.
If you’re looking to ship a small number of goods to Denmark, part-load is a useful option to consider. It allows you to save on the cost of shipping as you share a container and transport it with other people.
You are given the amount of space needed for your goods, which helps to lower your carbon footprint. The downside to part-load is that it will take longer for items to arrive.
This is because removal companies need to ensure everyone’s goods are safely packed, and they need to wait for all items to arrive before shipping. Items will take longer to be unloaded at the chosen destination too.
Given the waiting times with part-load deliveries, this can take anywhere from 1-2 weeks depending on the company chosen.
The cost of furniture removals will vary depending on the following factors:
The average costs of shipping goods via sea freight are:
According to the Transportica calculator, shipping 2 tons of goods from the UK to Denmark is estimated at around £1400.
Based on DFS Worldwide figures, air freight costs are around £850. This will change according to the total weight of your goods.
Part-load shipping is based on the amount of space used. You can expect it to cost less than an entire container.
Here is a list of everything you will need before relocating to Denmark:
You will need to register your car within 30 days of it arriving in Denmark. Insurance is mandatory for motor vehicles and dogs.
There are currently no restrictions in regards to Covid-19 in Denmark. Check the GOV.UK website for any changes.
Due to Brexit, British citizens need to apply for a residency permit to live in Denmark. You can stay in Denmark for 90 days before you need to apply for a visa or permit.
