How did you transport your belongings from the USA to Estonia?

Answers:

  • Im not American though, but you need to hire a cargo (packers and movers), who will deal with overseas cargos. As you are moving household goods it’s very straightforward procedure. The company packs everything for you and all the boxes needs to be labelled and they need to know the content of the box. Moving household goods you do not pay any tax only the transportation fee.
  • I would advise to check all electrical appliances and devices for compatibility with EU voltage and frequency. Month ago here was a person selling stuff, which he brought from states, but it doesn’t work here.
  • We just moved to Tallinn from Florida. I called a few companies and the procedure they indicated was either they come to you and figure out a quote based on what you’re bringing, or if it’s all packed then you can give them numbers of items/boxes and weights. We didn’t move any furniture or household items so didn’t go with that option, but the estimates where all free so you won’t have anything to lose to call.
  • Before choosing a moving company, Google them and find some candid reviews from customers. We were just minutes away from committing to one company – giving them thousands of dollars and everything in our household – when I thought to check them out online. Their customers had the bitterest experiences: damaged goods and delivery that was often *months* late.
  • It is pretty easy to find a furnished apartment in Estonia and as mentioned, the voltage for appliances is different, so think about what you really need to ship. We brought only our clothes and some important books/toys and we were able to bring it all by plane.
  • We did the same and just got a furnished apartment a couple weeks ago. We actually only saw a couple unfurnished apartments offered though I am sure you can get them.
