Burke Bros Moving Group have over 35 years’ experience of moving many hundreds of people to and from areas all over France. We know the country incredibly well and are well-versed in the logistics of moving to the continent.
Crossing the Channel
Of course, unlike a move within the UK, the Channel is going to have to be negotiated. We commonly use all ports, but most commonly we make use of Dover and Portsmouth in the UK and Le Harve, Caen and Calais in France.
Access to the New Property
It is always important to have keys to the new property prior to the delivery day. Always discuss the access at the French property as sometimes a shuttle service from the vehicle to the new home will need to be arranged.
Many clients do not need the use of a full-sized furniture van, so Burke Bros Moving Group can offer prices for ‘part loads’. This means that you can send a small consignment of belongings over to France which goes on a shared vehicle with other customers. The cost will then involve the space pre-booked in the van rather than having to pay for the cost of a sole-use vehicle.
Delivery dates will need to be flexible as our van will have several deliveries to make. Normally part loads can be collected and delivered within two to three weeks depending on traffic. We run services on a regular basis to all regions of France.
Moving motor vehicles
We can also arrange collection and delivery of motor vehicles and motorbikes which can be transferred in road trains (a vehicle with a boxed trailer).
