If you are moving to the UK please apply for your ToR number (transfer of residence for duty and tax free entry of your household goods into the UK) at least 3-4 weeks before you plan on shipping your goods.
We can not load your items into a container until you have the ToR number. You can apply up to 6 months in advance so please apply as soon as you can.
UK Customs asks for a packing list when you apply for your ToR number so the best thing to do is use our online packing list creator and estimate boxes you might be shipping. If the final packing list is different it will be fine. At least you will have given Customs a good idea of what you are taking which is all they need at this point.
