How to Move to Denmark with Schumacher
Estimate the Volume of Goods
When moving to Denmark, start by calculating the size of your move. With an estimate size, we can better prepare you with the info you need for a successful move. Our consolidated shipments allow customers to only pay for the space they need. This also gives us the flexibility to handle shipments of all shapes and sizes.
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 for Moving to Denmark from the USA
The cost to move to Denmark 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 Denmark will have a different price than NY to Denmark. This is the case even if all other factors are the same. For this reason, our representatives create custom quotes specific to each move.

Start Shipping the Goods to Denmark
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.
Complete the Move at Your Home Overseas
As your goods begin their import to Denmark, they begin customs clearance. When they clear, they are unloaded and prepared to move to your home. You will receive a call to confirm address and delivery date. Your goods are then taken and delivered to you where you need at the scheduled time. All that’s left is to enjoy your time overseas and the completion of your move to Denmark.

Beyond those cities, Schumacher can just as easily move you to anywhere within the country. Moving to Esbjerg will be just as easy as moving to Copenhagen for us. The main ports are in Copenhagen and Aarhus, so your goods will enter there then move inland to wherever your new home is.
