Moving from Spain to the UK
Moving home from Spain to the UK involves coordinating international relocation logistics. From our fleet of removal vans and lorries to our team of specialists, we streamline the process while you handle the important personal aspects of your move.
Our Spain to UK removals team follows strict protocols for packing, loading, and customs transit. Your assigned move coordinator will be your single point of contact throughout. They will oversee the end-to-end process – liaising between teams and providing updates. You’ll receive regular inventory checks and status reports each step of the way.
On move day, our removal team will arrive on-time with all necessary equipment. They’ll disassemble furnishings and use premium packing materials to protect your valued possessions during loading and transit. For added reassurance, full goods in transit insurance is included.
Moving to the UK after Brexit
Brexit has brought changes to the process of moving to the UK from EU countries like Spain. However, it is still possible for EU citizens to relocate to the UK after Brexit.
Some key considerations include:
- If you are an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen, you can apply for a visa to live and work in the UK. See the government website for more information.
- When moving goods from Spain to the UK, you now must complete full customs declarations and may have to pay import taxes. We assist with customs brokerage.
- Pets moving from Spain to the UK need an EU Pet Passport and may require additional health checks. We work with pet relocation specialists.
- There are limits on how long you can drive on a Spanish license before requiring a UK license.
- UK import rules restrict certain foodstuffs coming from the EU. We advise clients on prohibited items.
While Brexit adds complexity, we are here to guide you through the new requirements. Our removals team handles all transportation, documents, and customs clearance to ensure a smooth, stress-free move to your new UK home.

Other Considerations for Moving from Spain to the UK
Here are some other important things to know about moving from Spain to the UK:
- Currency Exchange - Move funds from euros to British pounds and open a UK bank account ahead of your move. We can recommend foreign exchange companies.
- Schools - Research and apply for schools well in advance. Requirements differ in the UK, especially for secondary school.
- Healthcare - Apply for a UK European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) to access NHS services as an EU citizen. Be aware of coverage differences.
- Housing - The UK rental market moves quickly, so line up accommodation ahead of your arrival. Temporary corporate housing is an option while you search.
- Driving License - Spain and UK licenses are interchangeable for now, but you'll eventually need to convert to a UK license once resident.
- Post-Move Admin - Notify authorities and update records with your new UK address for tax, voting, vehicle registration, and more.
- Visas - If seeking work in the UK, check that your visa covers employment authorization and any family members.
- Pensions - Contact providers to arrange continuing pension payments and access. Retirement plans differ between countries.
