Removals to France FAQ's

Moving Costs for France
Pinnacle offer competitive pricing for removals to France. Your move professional will create a bespoke moving quote that fits your needs to ensure all your moving requirements are met. The cost of moving to France will depend on the method of transportation you choose and the size of your shipment. If you are looking for ways to save money when moving to France, talk to your Move Coordinator about full and part loads to France to see what would be the best option for your budget.
Part Load Removals to France
Our flexible removals to France offer many options for transporting your belongings. Depending on the size of your house move, dedicated loads to France or part loads are available for your move. Our fleet of vehicles have an extremely large capacity so it is common for multiple removals to be housed in one lorry for European home removals. Our small loads, also known as shared loads or groupage to France are ideal if you only have a few boxes to move or an average-sized home move. By choosing part-load shipping, your belongings will be combined with other households in a high-capacity container to save time and reduce transport costs. If you can be more flexible with your moving date, part loads are ideal. This can be a great option for those who are downsizing or retiring abroad and only need to move limited belongings overseas.
Dedicated Loads to France
Alternatively, Pinnacle Removals also offers full-load moves to France. These can be ideal if you are moving to France permanently and would like a full house removal to France. Also known as FCL shipping, this is the more costly method of moving to France but allows for more space to transport all of your household possessions. Full loads to France are a more premium option for those who require a faster service on a specific date or a very large volume of belongings.
Removals to France by Road
When booking your household removal to France, you’ll typically have the choice of land or sea transport for your belongings. Each type of removals process has a different cost and time frame which your France removals expert will explain to you during the quotation process. Whether you are moving from a flat or a 4-bed house, we have the capacity to transport your belongings to where they need to be. Our overseas removals services use road freight as the primary mode of transport to move your belongings to France by land. Our professional fleet of vehicles and moving specialists can transport your household goods to France using high-capacity lorries. Whilst slower than some moving options, road freight to France is a very cost-effective option and offers both full and part load options. Our experienced team will take your belongings from A to B safely helping make moving to your new home in France simple.
Sea Freight and Container Shipping to France
Our European sea freight services to France are a good choice for those looking for a cheaper way to move to France and are more open in terms of delivery dates. When planning your move, you’ll be offered a choice of FCL, full container load, or LCL, less than container load. Whilst this is the slower method of freight shipping to France, it can be a good option for those who do not need their household belongings immediately and are looking for a way to keep costs down when moving to France. Whilst slightly less common, sea freight can be a cost-effective way to ship furniture to France. A full 20ft container is usually enough for a typical 2-bed home.
Air Freight to France
The fastest way to transport household belongings to France is by air freight. If you have a specific date you will need your household goods by or are looking for a fast turnaround time for your move to France, choose air freight to France. However, as this is the fastest international removals service, it is also the most costly. Due to the nature of this mode of transport, it is more commonly used for smaller moves such as those with just a few boxes. If you are looking for a cheap way to ship items internationally, road freight to France will be more cost-effective.
Small Moves, Boxes and Luggage to France
If you are thinking of shipping boxes to France, sending luggage or would like help with a small move to France with fewer belongings, contact the experts at Pinnacle Removals. We can send luggage to France in a cost-effective manner to save you money on overweight baggage fees and ensure your belongings get where they need to be when you need them. We can ship suitcases of any size overseas to any destination in France, even remote locations. Our box shipping service is ideal for those only sending a few boxes to France as part of a smaller move, or to send belongings to someone studying abroad. We offer a range of box shipping sizes to choose from for quick, cost-effective delivery. If you require a very quick turnaround for your small move or luggage delivery to France, air freight is the best option.
How Moving to France Works
When preparing for your move to France, our professional team can help you to prepare. Whether you are moving furniture to France as part of a full house move or moving just a few boxes, we can help. In order to move to France, UK nationals will typically need to apply for a visa which is best to do before booking your household removal to plan ahead for any delays or problems with your French visa. You can apply for a French visa through the French consulate in Manchester, London or Edinburgh. Once you have moved to France, you will also need to apply for a residence permit. French residency permits are split into short-stay visas which allow you to stay for 90-180 days and long-term visas or ‘regular’ residence permits which are necessary for those looking to stay in France for longer than six months. Once you have made an enquiry with us, you’ll be assigned a Move Coordinator who will discuss all moving requirements with you and ensure you are aware of any French customs requirements. During the enquiry process, we’ll also conduct a thorough moving survey to help create your France moving quote. This can be conducted through either a home visit moving quote or a video survey to assess and measure your belongings and advise on the costs of moving your belongings to France from the UK. If you are aware of any access issues for your new home such as narrow or remote country lanes or other obstacles, it is best to mention this to your move advisor at this stage so they can plan accordingly. Additionally, some rural locations can be hard to access in France, your move specialist may discuss move options depending on the time of year you will be moving.
