Could anyone please tell me approx. what the cost will be to come to Cyprus, I am just looking for a ballpark figure as I know it is impossible to give an accurate one.
There will be just the 2 of us plus our dog, we will be renting fully furnished so will not be bringing a vast amount over with us. I am not sure whether to bring our car or sell it and buy one once we are there. Any help/advice much appreciated. We are both retired so will not be looking for work.

Hi
We are moving to cyprus next month and I would advise selling your car and buying one there. our car is only worth £1000 yet they want 4500 euros to ship, register, mot, tax etc. We feel this does not warrant the expence of bringing it with us.
Other quotes for shipping your stuff varies alot to how much you bring. A 20 ft container was quoted of around £3500 and an 8m3 shared container from £1000 + vat. We dont have a dog so cant help you there but I am sure someone else will pop up and help you and give you their advice and experience.

Good luck with the move if you do it. From what I have read on these threads then it is well worth the move :)

Hi, I used PBS International Freight to ship my 2 Springers over, I purchased the travel crates from them too, so it all depends how big your pooch is to the size of crate needed, they have to be able to stand, turn and lie down in them, then it goes on weight. I found they were very competative on the crates, they even provided the water bowls.

They provide all the paperwork, all you do is turn up at the freight depot before the flight with all your paperwork, dog passport and of course,:) dog!

It may seem daunting to us, but these people are dealing with it daily so are experienced, when I left the lads at the freight depot I felt a bit happier they were in safe hands.

By the way, they are based at Gatwick and Heathrow, but I flew out from Manchester, they cover the world.!!

I used PADDS ( Pissouri Area Daily Delivery Service) 96306766 to pick me and the dogs up from the airport on arrival, the crates were huge and my car was still on the container......good service.

Hope that's some use to you.:D

i am pretty much in the same position as you. me the wife and the dog. i have a lhasa apso which jet set pets quoted me £496 including everything flying with thomsons. i will be bringing my new ford transit van which as long as you have owned the vehicle for at least the last 6 months you should be able to import free as it is classed as your personal effects. you would need to pay to re register it with cypriot plates which for my van will be about £800. i will also be moving all my stuff including my van in a 40ft container. i have a quote from www.cargo-overseas.co.uk they quoted me £1980.00 plus vat.

hope this helps.
