For some people, (particularly students and those on short term contracts) moving to France is simply a matter of loading a few cases into the car and setting off for their fully furnished flat on the continent. For many others, it’s not that simple.
For those who have more to move that can’t be loaded into their car, there are several options available. The do-it-yourself options seem cheaper at first, but this can be very misleading as the costs can be way more than the expense of hiring a van. Fuel costs need to be taken into account and additional expenses can include tolls and tariffs, insurance, even overnight accommodation.
Then there is the risk of unexpected additional costs. Inexperience in loading furniture for long journeys and a lack of the proper protective equipment can lead to goods getting damaged, (sometimes irreparably) and those goods will need to be replaced.
The cost of moving furniture to France with a removals company can be considerably cheaper, (and a lot less stressful) than the D.I.Y. option, but it’s important to use a company that has a lot of experience.
The removals company will need to know all the relevant rules and regulations to transport goods within France and ideally should be a member of a trade body that enforces a Code of Practice.
