Moving to Austria

For your move to Austria it is possible to transport your goods by road. There are two options, namely direct transport and combined (groupage) transport. Since Austria is part of the European Union, customs formalities do not apply.

The costs of moving to Austria

Direct transport is more expensive than combined transport because a lorry has to leave for Austria just for your move. With combined transport you share the costs of the journey with others, which makes it much cheaper.
