Thank you for this info - it is printed out and in our "Cyprus bible" ready for our move in a few months time (hopefully)

I would only bring my tv and high-fi system, and bedding.

When we originally came to Cyprus in 2004 we brought all our household and personal possessions and only sold the household items when we moved away in 2008. When we returned in 2013 to live we brought everything we could from our previous abode and still use them, so I would suggest bring everything you can with you - you can always get rid of it here, but some things are irreplaceable. In 2004 importing a vehicle would have incurred high import charges and as Cyprus had only just joined the EU we didn't consider bringing a vehicle.

All down to the individual I suppose. I have a cousin who's just moved to Limmasol, packed a suitcase and got on a plane!

Our car is in good condition with low mileage so we thought it would be cheaper to ship over than buy 2nd hand in Cyprus. And we wanted to bring a fair amount of our stuff with us, once we've decluttered a bit.

If you give me the emmission for the car, the engine size and the milage, I will give you the tax cost. If you want to bring it as personal goods you must have owned it at least six months

Emissions are 120, 1.4 engine & 31,000 miles. Bought new a few years ago and well looked after so presume it would be just as expensive to buy 2nd hand in similar condition hence decision to bring it with us

Thanks,
Pauline

Nothing to worry about, the excise duty is under 100 because of the low emmission

Just had my quote come through from Car Shipping | International Vehicle Shipping to r&r my car from either Bristol or Southampton with vat it costs 576 that does not include collection, insurance, storage, and import fees/permits. If i use Bristol then I can drive it there, from Southampton its 14 days from Bristol its 21 days and sailings are weekly. I will try to find out how much it would cost for a 20ft container instead.
Cheers
