Planning Your Removals from UK to France
Starting your new life in France requires careful planning and preparation. Just hopping on a plane and hoping for the best simply isn’t enough. Quite aside from anything else, you’re going to need to find a reliable and efficient way to transport all your belongings to your new home.
The team at Movewise Ltd has been helping people arrange their removals from UK to France for years. We know what you should be arranging ahead of time to make sure things go as smoothly as possible.
These are just some of the things you need to think about…
De-cluttering Your Home
When arranging removals from UK to France, it’s worth considering whether you really need to ship everything to your new home abroad. Indeed, it offers an excellent opportunity to rid yourself of some of the clutter in your life. Items you haven’t used in years or don’t into to in the foreseeable future can be sold, gifted, or donated to charity.
Packing Up Your Belongings
However long you think it’s going to take you to pack, be warned. It’s going to take longer! Always give yourself plenty of time to gather everything together and make sure all your belongings are wrapped with care using bubble wrap to protect them during transit.
Dismantling Your Furniture
While some items of older furniture can only be shipped as a single item, most modern pieces can be disassembled, saving space (and cost) during shipping. Here at Movewise Ltd, we always recommend our customers dismantle such furniture as they can. This is not just to reduce the costs, but also to limit the risk of damage in transit.
Removals from the UK to France will take some time, unless you’re prepared to pay exorbitant fees for immediate freight by air. If you pay the cost of an entire shipping container (whether it’s full or not), your belongings should arrive within a week or so. A groupage (or shared) shipment will take closed to 4-6 weeks.
It is likely you will need to find some temporary solutions to tide you over while you await your removals from UK to France. If your budget is exceptionally tight, you may have to make do with sleeping bags and camp beds for a few weeks. If you have a little cash to spare, you may be able to find some cheap furniture for sale locally that will make do for the time being.
