Retiring to France

Feb 03. 2017

After 35 years of moving families and individuals to all parts of France, we have an in-depth knowledge of the country, the customs and of executing smooth and efficient removals.
Many of our customers who are moving to France are doing so as part of their retirement plans. We fully appreciate that the move to France can seem a daunting process. Many of our customers who are moving to retire have often accumulated substantial amounts of furniture and personal possessions which they want to accompany them in their new life in France. This is why it is of paramount importance to choose a removal company which is highly experienced, reputable and which you feel comfortable with.

The remover should absolutely be a member of the UK trade body, the ‘British Association of Removers.’ Members are audited on a regular basis and must have all of the appropriate licenses and insurance in place.  Whichever mover you opt for, you will need to give them as much notice as possible and it is worth bearing in mind that the industry experiences quite a degree of seasonality. Summer months can often prove to be very busy, with some removal companies being fully booked for months in advance. Don’t delay in contacting a few removal companies to obtain pre-moving surveys and quotations from them.

The amount of household items you want to take with you will determine the size of the removal you’ll need, be this; a partial load or a full load. We also understand that customers who are moving to France to retire, often have acquired a lot of items of sentimental and great personal value. For this reason, and to ease the process further, we offer a partial or full packing service. We ensure fragile items are individually wrapped with professional packing materials and if necessary we can build crates for specialist items.

For further information on the removal services we offer to all departments France on a very regular basis please contact us on 01902 714555 or by sales@burkebros.co.uk. We would be only too happy to answer your questions or to arrange a free pre-move survey.
