With a move to Norway you shouldn’t find the prospect of shipping your belongings overwhelming. The main port is in the capital Oslo, where items can then be transported all over the country. MoveHub can help you find the right shipping company to make it happen.
Regardless of where you’re moving to, be it Oslo or somewhere further away like Bergen, we can help make shipping items easy.
As part of mainland Europe there is always the option to send your stuff to Norway overland via the Eurotunnel, but this is likely to take much longer than if you opt for air or sea freight.
If time is of the essence, air shipping will give you the quickest solution, but it is the most expensive.
However, if you have time and pack your belongings in advance, shipping by sea can be very cost effective; and it actually doesn’t take much longer than a few days, depending on the amount of goods you’re transporting.
Of course, not everyone will be living in close proximity to Oslo, but with international shipping door-to-door delivery is standard, so you can make sure your possessions are taken straight to your new home.
Norway isn’t part of the EU, so before you ship your items across it’s a good idea to check if there are restrictions on bringing certain items into the country. You’ll find a list of general items below, but more up to date information can be found on the Norway Toll Customs website.
