Arranging Removals to France in Part Loads

Despite it being the nearest country in mainland Europe to the UK, moving to France can be a costly business. Quite aside from securing a home in the country, there are several administrative charges and fees involved in the emigration process. Naturally enough, many ex-pats looking to relocate to France seek out to reduce their outgoings.


At Movewise Ltd, we know that, for removals to France, part loads are one of the easiest and most effective ways to bring down the overall cost.

Removals to France – Part Loads

There are two main options when it comes to shipping your belongings to your new home in France – single loads and part loads (or groupage). Single loads mean your possessions are packed up in a shipping container and immediately freighted to France. With a part load shipping service, your items are held at our storage facility while we wait for another customer (or customers) also moving to the country. Once we have sufficient items to fill a shipping container, we send the whole lot over as a single shipment. This allows us to defray the cost of shipping, splitting the fees between multiple customers, reducing the amount each has to pay for the service.

Pros and Cons of Part Load Removals to France

The main advantage of part load removals to France is the saving made in terms of shipping costs. All customers still receive the same high standard of service that we always deliver, with a door-to-door service provided by our trusted delivery partners in France. The only disadvantage that comes with groupage shipping is the unavoidable delay in shipment. In our experience, this can take anywhere between two and six weeks.

For many people arranging removals to France, part loads are the best of the available options, but the decision is ultimately yours to make.
