From entire households to smaller boxes and parcels, find out how to move your stuff overseas or across Europe.
Whether you’re planning a move to Hungary from overseas or need to move your stuff across Europe, unraveling the ins and outs of international shipping can be tricky, not to mention costly if you don’t do it right.
Logistics company Eurosender has successfully helped people ship everything from entire households to beloved musical instruments by land and sea, from door to door. Here they outline how to ship anything to or from Hungary while offering up some important tips on how to make your move as smooth as possible.
Decide which items will come with you
First things first: Nail down dimensions. If you’re moving, take stock of all of your personal belongings and household items to determine what is essential and what is replaceable then get out your tape measure!
As you’re deciding what stays and goes, factor in the cost of buying certain items in Hungary, where electronics and clothes tend to be on the pricier side, versus the cost of shipping them.
Shipping, freight, or ground transport: choose the right service for you
Once you know what you want to ship abroad and how much space you need — maybe you can’t part with your beloved bedroom set, or on the contrary, want to send just a few boxes of clothes or books — it’ll be easier to choose the right shipping service.
The most important thing is to ensure that your package does not exceed the weight and dimension restrictions for your type of shipment.
If you exceed the weight limit, there’s a chance your package may not reach its final destination.
If you’re traveling light and just want to send a few boxes or suitcases, standard shipping (roughly 10 boxes max) is the way to go. You should get your things in 5-7 working days or if you opt for express shipping 24 hours (in Europe) or 48 hours (global).
Standard shipping dimensions are as follows:
Anyone who plans to move the majority of their home or belongings from within Europe to Hungary can do so via van delivery service in Europe, which can be used for moving any type of large shipment from a motorcycle to a few boxes.
If you need to transport a lot of boxes or larger items, this can be the most cost-effective option, because you don’t pay for each package individually (and you do not necessarily need to follow the packing guidelines, as you would with individual shipments sent through standard or any other type of service).
Delivery time for dedicated vehicles throughout Europe is an estimated 24-48 hours. Van sizes are:
