Removals to Tromsø | European Removals Service | Removals to Norway
Removals to Tromsø – Norway’s Largest Northern City
Situated 350 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle, Tromsø is a perfect entry point to large tracts of beautiful, untouched wilderness in northern Norway. It’s also a popular spot for tourists who come from around the world to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights. Known as the ‘Gateway to the Arctic’, Tromsø has become a 21st century destination offering specialist restaurants, micro breweries and ice bars to its global visitors.
Tromsø is more than just a tourist destination, though. The city, founded two centuries ago as a trapping centre, remains a busy working environment for its population. It is home to Norway’s biggest fishing port, and there’s a university that leads the world in Arctic research. There’s also an annual international film festival that draws growing attention each year.

Choose Schepens for Your Removals to Tromsø
Whether you’re moving to Tromsø for work, as a student, or because you want to live life on the edge of the Arctic, you’ll be looking for a reliable removals partner to help with the move. Schepens is a 4th generation, family run company, and we’ve been managing removals to Norway for over a century now. We regularly move people to this part of the world and our aim is always to provide stress-free removals for our customers.
A European move is a major logistical challenge, which is why we provide every client with an experienced Move Co-ordinator. They know the process well, and have a wealth of local knowledge. Your Move Co-ordinator will provide you with a detailed quotation, and then work with you to manage the move from packing, through customs clearance, to a successful move into your new home.
Schepens for Tromsø Removals and Storage
Schepens ships regularly to a number of destinations in Norway which means that we are able to offer flexible scheduling to our clients, and keep our prices competitive. Our removals teams know the terrain well, and have the experience to be able to choose the most efficient routes, and best times of the year. We can offer shared or dedicated containers for the transportation of your goods.
Early on in the planning process, your Move Co-ordinator will discuss with you any storage needs or non-standard shipping requirements you may have. Schepens has secure storage facilities in a range of locations across the UK and we can arrange door-to-door storage for your goods. If you have a valuable, or fragile item you wish to ship, we can arrange bespoke packing and insurance.
Residence in Norway
Currently, British citizens and British subjects need only a valid British passport to enter Norway. If you plan to stay in Norway for longer than six months you will need to apply for a residency permit. This will equip you with a personal number which you will need to rent a home, for example, or access the health service. Once the UK leaves the EU, entry requirements will change, and are likely to become more stringent.
Healthcare in Norway
For the first six months of your stay, British citizens can access the excellent Norwegian healthcare system so long as they have a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). Once you apply for Norwegian residency you will be required to join the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme (NIS). This allows you to gain access to low cost healthcare via Norway’s public healthcare system.
Norwegian Education System
It will probably come as no surprise that the Norwegian education system is well funded, globally recognised, and free to residents. English is spoken in Norwegian schools but children are encouraged to learn Norwegian. There are an excellent range of schools and universities across the country, including international schools teaching the UK curriculum.
A Range of Schepens Services
It’s rare that our movers have an extensive experience of European removals, which is why we offer first class support and guidance at every step of the way. Experience tells us that every single move is different. That’s why we create a bespoke removals package for each client, based on their unique requirements. The services you choose may include:
- Packing – this is a cost-effective, stress-busting service that can be tailored to your needs. Our BAR trained professional team will use professional materials to pack your goods securely, label all boxes clearly, and create a detailed inventory.
- Insurance – all your goods are insured whilst they are in transit. We offer specialist insurance for valuable goods, and can arrange additional cover for accidental damage or extended liability.
- Storage – if you have storage requirements, we can provide a comprehensive service. We will deliver your container to your door, provide packing support if required, and transport your goods to a Schepens owned local secure storage facility.
- Removals Fleet – Your goods will be shipped in one of our state-of-the-art removals vehicles which maintain a constant temperature and humidity, run on air ride suspension and boast an adjustable bearing system, which ensures little or no movement of vehicle content.
