Shipping Container Costs to Denmark

With a move to Denmark, there are lots of things to consider. With shipping routes to Copenhagen from various ports abroad, getting your belongings where they need to be doesn’t need to be complicated.

Whether you’re relocating to Copenhagen or further afield, MoveHub can help you find the right shipping company to get your items to Copenhagen and beyond.

Sending them by sea freight, however, can be much more cost effective if you can afford a longer shipping time. All you need to do is pack essential items to travel with you to Denmark and the rest should follow in a matter of days, depending on the amount of items you’re shipping.

Of course, Denmark has numerous attractive locations beyond Copenhagen, and with international shipping including door-to-door delivery as standard, wherever you’re moving to, it will be brought direct to you.

Bringing items into Denmark

Although Denmark is a member of the EEC, whereby the freedom of movement of goods within EU countries for personal belongings is allowed, there may be some items that are still restricted. You’ll find a number of general items below, but for peace of mind head to the Danish Customs and Tax Administration website for further clarification.
