Moving to Iceland

Samskip emphasizes on providing good comprehensive services in the shipment of goods, but there are many things to keep in mind when moving from one country to another.


In order to get a price for shipping you have to fill out an offer request. It is important to fill in all * (asterisk) marked fields as well as the amount of goods to be transported.


How much bulk do you carry with you? It is usually more efficient to order a container if the quantity is larger than 16 m3.

How to order?

All transfers must be ordered at least three days in advance and this is done at Samskip's office in Reykjavik, tel. +354 458 8000 or by email at [email protected].
