Which Shipping Option Do You Need?

Before moving to Romania from the UK, it’s important to arrange your shipping in advance. This will ensure your personal belongings arrive on schedule and when you need them.

Shipping furniture overseas can be costly. This is why it’s important to select the best shipping option for your convenience and also your budget.

As the UK has left the European Union, there are extra steps you will need to take when shipping goods to Romania. This includes providing extra documentation. The main shipping options to choose from are:

  • Shipping freight
  • Road freight
  • Part-load
  • Air freight

You can choose to use one or more of these shipping options depending on your preference.

Shipping Freight

Shipping freight is a cost-effective shipping option to consider when moving goods to Romania. Romania is located in the almost land-locked Black Sea. But, it’s still accessible to cargo ships.

Due to the current Russian war with Ukraine, there have been delays with shipping freights arriving in the Black Sea. This is worth keeping in mind if you need to receive your goods quickly. Typical shipping times are between 3-6 weeks.

Romania is home to a total of 39 ports, with the Port of Constanta being the main freight shipping port. Other ports include:

  • Port of Midia
  • Port of Bachet
  • Port of Medgidia
  • Port of the New Galati Basin
  • Port Calarasi

If you’re looking to ship the contents of a larger home, shipping freight is the best option. Costs are based on the chosen container size rather than the weight of your goods. It also provides you with the option of shipping a vehicle too. You can choose between a 20ft or 40ft container.


Road Freight

Road freight is another great shipping option to consider when planning removals from the UK to Romania. All international removal companies need to have both Goods in Transit and Public Liability insurance. This helps to protect your goods during transit. It’s a cost-effective option that allows your goods to arrive quickly.

It typically takes moving companies between 2-4 days to transport household goods from the UK to Romania. Road freight tends to involve a door-to-door service that’s included in the moving costs. Some companies may charge additionally for this. This shipping option will often use other modes of transport, such as the Eurotunnel and ferry sailings.

This shipping option is reliable and great for those looking to move on a budget. Removal teams will assist you in choosing the correct size van for your move, and can also provide packing materials and services if needed.

For those looking to ship fewer goods, part-load is the best option to consider. This allows you to share a container with other people. You are only expected to pay for the cost of the space used, which helps to lower shipping costs.

Transit times tend to be longer with part-load due to the container being shared, which causes longer transit and delivery times. On average, part-load road freight services will take 5-9 days to arrive. Shipping freight will take substantially longer.

You will need to consider part-load and groupage schedules as they tend to be less frequent than direct shipping. The more people that share a container, the longer the delivery will take.


Air Freight

Air freight is the fastest way to receive your personal belongings. This shipping option typically takes between 1-2 days to arrive. There are 12 international airports in Romania. The main airport is Henri Coandă International Airport. Other popular airports include:

  • Bucharest Airport
  • Cluj-Napoca Airport
  • Timișoara Airport
  • Iași Airport

If you need important belongings to arrive quickly, air freight is the best option. However, you will be limited when it comes to heavy furniture. Air freight is charged by weight and due to the size of the aeroplanes, you are limited with the volume of items you can ship. It’s also the most expensive and least eco-friendly shipping option.

What Documentation Do I Need?

Now that the UK has left the EU, there are additional visas and documents you will need to apply for and complete before moving to Romania. Some of the documentation needed to enter the country includes:

  • Valid passport
  • Travel health insurance
  • Police clearance certificate
  • Documents stating you have enough funds
  • Proof for the purpose of your stay
  • Relevant visas, permits and residence documents

Visas and Permits

To live in Romania for less than 90 days in any 180-day period, UK citizens don’t need to apply for a visa or permit. This is because it’s part of the Schengen Area. After this time, you will need to apply for the correct visa for your stay.

To apply for a Romanian visa, you will need to fill out the online E-Visa application form. This is via the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The form will need to be completed at least 2 weeks before you are due to travel to ensure the visa arrives on time.
