How Long Does Moving to Luxembourg Take?
There are variables that affect the overall amount of time your move will take. Generally a shipment takes about 8-10 weeks door to door. This does not account for factors like consolidation time if you choose that method. The actual time to move the goods to your door in Luxembourg from the port has many factors involved as well.
As international movers, we do everything that we can to deliver as soon as possible but these should serve as a guide as they are estimates and transit can change.
Consolidated Container Service
A consolidated move to Luxembourg is when your goods ship alongside other customers in the same container. This service offers the best value as you only pay for the space you use inside. On the other hand, consolidations add time to the overall move so you may use another service if speed is what matters. A move to Luxembourg will not start until the container is full, which can take a variable amount of time. Though this should move faster as your goods can join popular European containers.
Full Container Service
As opposed to consolidations, full container service is when you ship your own personal container. We offer both 20 and 40 foot containers that hold 1000 and 2000 cubic feet respectively. If you are close to those amounts, a full container is definitely the right choice. The price is efficient, while you also do not have to wait for anyone else to ship.
Air freight moving is the fastest possible way to ship. Your items are loaded onto a plane and are flown right to the nearest airport to the destination. With this your international move can be finished as fast as one to two weeks. This is generally only used if cost is no issue as it is the most expensive option.
Domestic Transport and Completing the Move
The main port for importing goods in Luxembourg is Antwerp in Belgium. For shipping household goods to Luxembourg, we offer door to door services meaning you can choose for us to deliver anywhere in the country once they arrive.
When arriving, your goods enter the custom clearance process. As they clear, they unload into the warehouse and a representative will contact you regarding the next step. Your delivery will be scheduled as transit is secured and then delivered to your door. After receiving your goods, all that’s left is to enjoy your time as an expat in Luxembourg .
