MOving from the U.S. - when is it allowed to ship the move

Post New Topic

Hi! I am moving from NY to Luxembourg, and was informed that the shipment of our household goods will only be allowed when we have the "visa" - Is the "temporary authorization to stay" enough? I am concerned, because since the move takes about 6 weeks to arrive Luxembourg, I will stay almost 2 months without my furniture and stuff...
One more question: does anyone knows if appliances (such as vacuum cleaner, steamer, hair drier, etc) from the U.S. work in Luxembourg?
Thank you!

Hello. I'm not totally sure about the answer of when you can ship. But it makes sense that you would have to have a visa before you'd be allowed to ship all of your goods (i.e.- move) to another country. Otherwise, you'd be moving a bunch of stuff without the right to actually live in the country you're shipping to. I would recommend that you speak with a moving company that does international moves. They should be able to advise you on things like this.

Regarding hairdryers and other electronics... take a look at the electrical specs on the power block and/or cable. The voltage here is 220-240V. In the US, the voltage is 110V. Most electrical components these days have built in transformers that allow you to plug into either voltage (in which case you would only need a cheap adapter to plug it into an electrical outlet here). But many devices do not. Most hairdryers do not for example. And I would doubt that most vacuum cleaners do either. I would recommend selling or giving away any electrical devices that do not have multi-voltage features and repurchase them once you are in Luxembourg. Good luck!

We did purchase dual voltage hair dryers in the US and they worked fine. Also, I’d suggest purchasing a large bag of adapters. We brought our lamps and with an adapter they are fine, but leave your lughtbulbs and purchase new ones in Lux. We also had a large transformer that we brought so I could use my kitchen appliances like hand mixer, stand up mixer, immersion blender, printer etc. Purchasing one large transfer allowed me to bring all my small appliances and saved money there.
