If you’re relocating to Cyprus, then shipping your belongings over doesn’t have to be an ordeal. MoveHub can help you find the right shipping company to get your belongings to Cyprus, whether you’re going to be based near Larnaca on the south coast, inland in Nicosia where or anywhere in between.
There are various shipping routes, so you can choose the Cypriot port that’s most convenient for you.
As an island in the Mediterranean Sea, you have to reach Cyprus by air or sea, which makes these your only options for shipping too. Air freight will inevitably provide the quickest means of getting your belongings sent over, but this quick and convenient service comes at a higher price.
