How to Move to Belgium from the USA
Estimate the Volume of Goods
When moving to Belgium, the best place to begin to calculate the amount you are shipping. With an estimate size, we can better prepare you with the info you need for a successful move.
Use our Moving Calculator to create an estimate for the volume of your goods. For people who don’t know their move size yet, we also have preset volumes to quote on from 10 boxes all the way to a 4+ bedroom home.
Get Your Cost to Move to Belgium
The cost to move to Belgium depends on many different factors. Details like volume, origin, destination city, and service type all affect the price. An example is moving from LA to Belgium will have a different price than NY to Belgium. This is the case even if all other factors are the same. For this reason, our representatives create custom quotes specific to each move.

Ship the Goods to Belgium from the US
Once you finalize a booking with your representative, we will begin your shipment. Using our full service moves, we come to your home then pack and wrap the goods we are moving. We then take the goods to our nearest warehouse and prepare it for shipping in a container. As soon as the container is ready to ship, it will load into the vessel and begin sailing. You will then receive the Bill of Lading and an estimate for when the goods will enter.
Receive the Goods at Your Home Overseas
As your goods enter Belgium, they will undergo customs clearance. When your goods clear, they will be unloaded and prepared to move to your home. You will receive a call to schedule the delivery and book the best available time. Your goods are then taken and delivered to you where you need. All that’s left is to enjoy your goods and the completion of your move to 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.
