Moving from the USA to Belgium, or any destination in Europe isn't your average household move across town.

Shipping Your Household Goods
Last year alone we moved hundreds of household goods shipments to Belgium. It's home to one of the busiest ports not only in Europe but also the world. Antwerp is our port of entry and because it's such a busy port, we have vessels leaving every other week.
Additionally, our rates generally include door to door pricing meaning that we'll pick up your effects in the US and deliver them right to your very door in Belgium.

Will You Have to Pay Duties and Taxes in Belgium?
This question depends on the specific of your move and the requirements need to be met. To ship your goods and import them without having to pay tax, the major requirements before moving to Belgium are that you have lived outside of the EU for at least 12 months.
Additionally, you will need to declare residency in Belgium if you are not a returning Belgian citizen.
Also, your belongings and effects being imported must used and at least 6 months old. Any new items or goods that do not meet this requirement will incur the standard import duties and VAT tax.
