Find a European transport company

Thinking of Moving to Europe

Moving to Europe may seem like a huge task, especially if you’ve never moved abroad before or are moving with children and pets.

Decide on a destination

If you’ve decided to move to Europe but haven’t chosen a country to reside in yet, make this your first port of call. Whether your heart lies in Italy or you’re dreaming of a new home in France, be sure to do your research so you know as much as possible about the culture of the country and you’re prepared for your move abroad.

Find out about the weather, the schooling system if you are moving to Europe with children, the property market and the realities of living there. Pay particular attention to all the things that will be important to your day-to-day life in your new country, such as employment, transport and taxation.

Whether you’re relocating to Europe or moving to a new house down the road in the UK, working out your budget is a crucial step in the house moving process. Assess the costs of a European move well in advance to avoid any financial disasters.

Think about:

In preparation for your move abroad you should also check the exchange rates of the country you’re moving to. You should be aware of how exchange rates and inflation could affect your income and pension, and factor this in to your calculations.

  • The initial purchase or rental of your new property
  • Legal fees
  • Agent fees
  • Taxes
  • Transportation costs for you, your family and your belongings
  • Costs for European Removals Companies
  • The costs of decorating and furnishing your new home
  • Any charges that might apply for setting up power, telephone and other utilities
  • Day-to-day living costs.

The best way to ensure a smooth move abroad is to find a reliable and professional European transport company who won’t leave anything to chance.

It’s strongly recommended that you use a removals firm that is a member of a recognised trade body such as the British Association of Removers (BAR), especially when moving overseas. Using a trusted and regulated European removals company to handle your move will give you peace of mind that your belongings are in safe hands – especially when they’re being transported halfway around the world!
