Moving Abroad to Denmark

As one of the happiest countries in the world, moving to Denmark is a very popular destination for those looking to move away from the UK. The climate is very similar to that of the UK and English is a widely and well-spoken language in the large cities across Denmark.

Our priority is to provide you a stress free move abroad, relieving the pressures of relocating to Eurpoe. Our team of professionals have been helping clients move abroad for over 50 years. We can provide a variety of useful tips ahead of your move abroad to Norway, discover our Frequently Asked Questions.

When moving to an overseas location, you will need to know a little about your destination before making the move.
Denmark covers an area of around 16,640 square miles, making its size just one-sixth the area of the UK. Over many years people have been moving to Denmark from other countries from Europe and other global locations. The country has borders with Germany in the south. With a population of around 5.6 million people, a tenth that of the UK, Denmark has a 50% lower population per square mile than the UK.

For those moving to Denmark, they will find the country is divided into 5 administrative regions. The regional names are Hovedstaden Region, Midtjyllan Region, Nordjyllan Region, Sjaelland Region and the Syddanmar Region.

The main exports from Denmark are machinery and equipment, foodstuffs and chemicals. There are many related industries that support these key industries and provide job opportunities for those moving to Denmark.

Denmark Residency

You can move to and live in Denmark with a temporary residence Visa if you are travelling from outside of the EU. It is easier to acquire permanent residency in Denmark if you are moving from the EU, but you can apply for permanent residency while living and working in Denmark. You will likely acquire a permanent residency card after 4 years of working in Denmark.

Moving Your Possessions To Denmark

Abels professional experience and local knowledge helps you by handling and advising of all aspects associated with the delivery of your possessions for you when moving to Denmark. Abels Moving Services endeavours to ensure your arrival at your new home overseas is smooth and trouble-free, to allow you to settle in as swiftly as possible.

For full house moves / large volumes it is recommended that a home survey appointment is made. One of our International Customer Service Managers can personally visit your home and discuss your moving requirements. They can then allay any concerns you may have and advise you on the whole moving process, and assess the items to be packed.

Also, they will explain how best to protect your items during their transit. The survey will also take account of access to your property to ensure that positioning a larger removal vehicle is possible. A full list of all items to be moved will be made by our colleague at this time. A detailed door to door removal proposal will be sent to you shortly following the visit after all costs are collated (including origin, road transportation, delivery services).

Smaller volumes can be discussed over the telephone, email or provided via our online service. Your volume, access, packing requirements and shipping method, will be assessed from the information you provide. A detailed door to door removal proposal will then be produced and either posted or emailed to you for consideration.

After you book with Abels you will be introduced to a Customer Liaison Move Coordinator (who will work on behalf of your Customer Service Manager) booking, organising and managing and assisting you when moving to Denmark.

Packing Your Possessions

Packing for your international move is extremely important, ensuring that all goods are packed to a high standard to meet exporting regulations for Denmark.

As your movers, we will strive to provide you with a comprehensive plan for exporting your goods to your property in Denmark. Typically, this will be completed by large removal vehicles. However, specialist vehicles and modes of transport can play a pivotal role in your international move. Ahead of your move, we will present you with the plan of action to ensure you are happy with the route and set expectations.

There may be occasions when items can require more extensive packing service for more valuable and delicate items. These items will be identified when discussing with your Customer Service Manager, we are renowned for moving antiques, fine art, and valuable items.

It is the Abels team’s responsibility to ensure that the proper precautions are taken into consideration ahead of your move to Denmark. This includes using high quality materials, and making you aware of how furniture and goods need to be packaged.

As part of your move to Denmark, we will assist with any packing and wrapping for your belongings. If you would like to complete your own packing of items, notify your moving specialist who will provide you with additional resources regarding meeting exporting and importing regulations for Denmark.


Fine Art & Specialist Packing Services

Moving Fine Art needs great care and will involve Enhanced Export Packing when shipping to Denmark. Items such as Fine Art Paintings and valuable pieces of furniture along with delicate items such as moving a Grand Father Clock, packing and shipping Barometers, transporting chandeliers all need careful handling while being packed in a specific way. The use of special cases built especially for these items needs to be utilized to give the highest level of protection. Find out more information about Moving Antiques, Fine Art, and Valuables.

The Abels team is specially trained in moving objects abroad to Norway, taking care and precision when handling specialist goods. With years of expertise, we have a plethora of Moving Advice to relieve stress and provide reassurance.

Abels Road Removal Services

Abels has a modern fleet of removal vehicles that are designed to be safe to transport items such as furniture, personal possessions and motor vehicles.

Abels maintains a variety of sized vehicles within our removal fleet to suit the purposes of the moves we undertake depending on access challenges, volumes to be moved and distance to travel.

Therefore Abels are ideally suited and can provide efficient moving services into all parts of Europe.

Customs Information

Since the UK left the EU we no longer have ‘free movement of goods’ between the UK and Denmark. This means the import of your household goods (furniture and personal effects) are subject to import and export rules and procedures. 

Your Abels Move Manager will provide you with tailored information to guide you through this part of the relocation process.

For now, here is a little breakdown of what to expect to help you start planning your move abroad.  

For your items to clear customs, you will need to provide some specific documentation. Our friendly team will discuss these requirements with you ahead of your move, the documents required at customs will depend on your status and personal situation.

Abels Destination Services in Denmark

With items moved by Abels Moving Services to Denmark, Abels will take care of all aspects of the destination services with our own removal teams on our vehicles.

For the majority of deliveries, we use one of our large removal vehicles. In situations where it is necessary to deliver items in Denmark by using a smaller delivery vehicle, Abels will make arrangements to transport the items by road in a normal removal delivery vehicle and then tranship to a smaller appropriate vehicle locally in Denmark.
Another consideration for delivery is the number of properties located on higher floors needing careful planning for delivery of your items. This can often be in conjunction with the concierge who will confirm the access possibility to the elevator and times approved for access. Some properties may only permit delivery utilising an external elevator.

An Advance Payment Guarantee Scheme operated by the British Association of Removers provides protection for prepayments made by our private customers (consumers) in the unlikely circumstance of Abels ceasing to trade and fulfilling a contract that has been paid for. This used to be provided by IMMI.

Normal service for delivery into Denmark includes delivery into rooms of your choosing, unpacking of carton items to a flat surface, set up of normal furniture removal and placement into positions as instructed, disposal of waste packaging materials. Should you prefer, arrangements can be made for a put-away service of carton items/maid cleaning/relocation or settling in services – should you have specific requirements, please discuss with your Abels Customer Service Manager or Abels Customer Liaison.
