When planning a move to Portugal, it is important to consider where to purchase electronics and appliances and what the cost may be. For those coming from countries outside of the EU, such as the UK, USA, Canada, South Africa the cost may be higher due to shipping and customs fees, and it may be more cost-effective to sell your existing items and purchase new ones once you arrive in Portugal.

Some common electronics and appliances that you may need include a washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, TV, microwave, fridge, and freezer. Additionally, you may want to consider buying smaller items such as blenders, food processors, home audio systems, and coffee machines.

There are several shops in Portugal where you can purchase electronics and appliances, including:

Additionally, many Portuguese towns and cities have smaller shops that sell white goods and appliances. Shopping online is also an option, with Amazon Spain (https://www.amazon.es)  and Amazon Germany (https://amazon.de) delivering a wide range of items to Portugal, and Kuanto Kusta (https://www.kuantokusta.pt/)  being Portugal’s primary online comparison shop. However, it’s worth noting that when shopping on international sites like Amazon, the price may not include installation and you may need to hire a plumber to install the item.

Additionally, purchasing second-hand items is an option through OLX.pt (https://www.olx.pt/), local Facebook Groups, or Facebook Marketplace. There are even some Cash Converters (https://cashconverters.pt), but only a few shops in Portugal in Lisbon & Porto. There are also some 2nd hand shops dotted around that might be able to assist.

In conclusion, buying electronics and appliances in Portugal can be a great experience, with a wide range of options available both in-store and online. Whether you’re a local resident or an expat, it’s important to do your research and compare prices before making a purchase.
