Residential Moving | Business Moving | Storage Services
We carry out hundreds of moves, on behalf of families and individuals, to and from France every year and operate services to and from all departments of France on a weekly basis.
Since 1982, Burke Bros Moving Group has been a leading name for removals to France. We employ the most experienced and professional removals team you will find and have detailed knowledge of local conditions.
We attend, and exhibit at, many of the highest profile France related exhibitions and shows all across the UK. We are a mainstay at the annual France Show in Olympia.
Burke Bros Moving Group have had a long standing association with all the Archant France publications from their first publication in 1989. We are regularly asked to contribute expert advice and articles to their France publications. Here are some of our recent articles:
We offer an excellent service for our customers to move their possession to their new premises, swiftly and securely. We can move entire household contents, part loads and vehicles.
We can move you to any location in France including the popular locations: Aquitatine, Brittany, Burgundy, Champage, Paris, Lorraine, Midi-Pyrénées, Nord – Pas-de-Calais, Normandy, Rhone-Alpes and Cote-d’Azur.
If your home contents have to come into store for weeks or months, Burke Bros Moving Group have 50,000 sq.ft of storage facilities and offer two options: containerised storage self-access storage
One of our experienced estimators will visit your home to determine the volume of goods that will be making the trip to France, as well as your packing requirements. Our representative will discuss with you how the moving process works, from the collection stage in the UK, right through to delivery to your new residence in France. We will give you a realistic quote, without obligation, based on a first class, high quality service.
Our membership with BAR and FIDI organisation guarantees your money and move are thoroughly protected. It offers our customers financial security, operational competence, worldwide support and redress facilities that give you total satisfaction that your possessions are being thoroughly cared for.
It provides a scheme of pre-payment protection. As payments are made prior to moving, it is more reassuring to use a financially bonded mover who belongs to the BAR or FIDI. The BAR comprises movers that offer a guarantee that customers advanced payments are protected should the company cease to trade. All of this means that if you have paid prior for your move and that company ceased to trade before your move, your payment is protected.

We just wanted to say that our move from the snowy Alps went extremely well....(the removal crew)... arrived puntually at 9.00am. They were exceptionally helpful, friendly and most of all, careful with our belongings and they did a really professional job. It made the whole thing less stressful for us and we are grateful to them for an excellent service and their sense of humour. (Moving France to Suffolk)
I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how hard your guys worked. They hardly stopped from the moment they arrived and really impressed us, as well as being really obliging. We would definetely recommend you to our friends because of the way they conducted themselves. (Moving Bristol to France via store)
Please pass on our thanks to the lads that conducted themselves impeccably and worked hard to make sure we had no issues at all. I know we paid for the complete service, but we got exactly that and were extremely pleased. It was also good that the lads enjoyed the banter and gave as good as they got. Once again thanks. (Moving France to Suffolk)
(Move from Paris to Carnforth) Just a quick note to say we're back home ok, Martin arrived on schedule on thursday morning with our worldly belongings. Have spent the weekend unpacking! Thanks for your help and support. Regards

"Dear Chris, Just a note to say thanks for a courteous and very professional move of the furniture from just outside Paris to Surrey. The crew arrived right on time both ends; their efforts were greatly appreciated. Moving isn’t something I’d like to do too often, but if the need arises again I’d be sure to give you a call. Best wishes, (Paris to Surrey)
Dear Chris As I’m sure you will know, our removals were completed yesterday evening, and I’d just like to thank you most sincerely for the wonderful service we received from your company from start to finish. Shaun and Chris could not have been more helpful and obliging and worked tirelessly to get the job finished by yesterday evening. They were unbelievably efficient, but also a real pleasure to have with us, and nothing we asked of them seemed to be too much trouble. I was only sorry there was not a bit of time for them to relax before they set off for home, but I realise there were deadlines to meet……thank you once again for being such a wonderfully calm and efficient company to deal with! With kind regards, Ms Graham (Monaco to Shropshire)
“The move has been successfully completed and we just wanted to say how pleased we have been with your service. Stuart and Mark, who carried out the whole move from start to finish were excellent. They were courteous, polite, highly efficient and were a pleasure to work with throughout the whole move. Nothing was too much trouble for them and, importantly, every item arrived intact and without any damage. Having spent many years training customer service within the highly demanding airline industry, I can confidently say that Stuart and Mark are a credit to your team. We would certainly recommend Burke Bros to anyone in the future. Once again Gary, many thanks for all your assistance, and please convey our thanks to all your team.” (London to Dordogne, France)

I write today to say thank you to Burke Bros for your rapid and helpful response to our problem a few weeks back and also to say a big thank you to (the removal crew) who were magnificent.

Just to thank you for the splendid service you and your team performed in getting all our household effects back to the UK.....
