Our European Moving Services

Our European removal services are designed to meet the real needs of real people. Our experience in international removals is unrivaled, so you can feel confident when moving with Abels. We can provide expert guidance on your unique requirements, from overseas currency transfers to moving pets abroad.

Our removal services benefit from the following:

European Relocation Assistance

Our specialist relocation assistance service is available for all European countries and tailored to your needs to cover house and education provision, orientation and transit. This service is particularly useful for companies or organisations that are looking to relocate their employees. The relocation process can be disruptive to families, particularly when the move involves a new country, so it is essential that there is as little stress as possible. Abels can offer advice on moving with children as well as a personal assistant service to give an added feeling of security and support.

Abels Storage Facilities

European Storage Solutions

If your new property is yet to be completed, or if you are moving to a temporary address, we can provide short-term or long-term storage. Then, upon completion, we can deliver your possessions to your new home.

Our purpose-built storage facilities, across Europe, have round-the-clock comprehensive security systems with 24-hour red care monitoring; all staff hold a full security clearance.

Whether crockery, curtains or your collection of fine art, our knowledgeable teams have specialist handling techniques, ensuring your property is in the safest of hands. Our ‘new for old’ insurance offers even greater peace of mind – you are of course, welcome to visit our warehouse facilities yourself.

Personalised Moving Services

In addition to our European relocation assistance, we also offer Personal Moving Assistant services to help facilitate your move. Services can be tailored to your specific needs and requirements but could include:

  • Photographic inventories, including help with insurance issues
  • Pre-move visit to both the current and new properties to plan and label furniture, to ensure a smooth move takes place.
  • Packing precious personal belongings, for example, clothing or fine china.
  • Unpacking and placing items into cupboards/wardrobes
  • Food shopping for the new home
  • Food preparation during the move, especially when a move will take several days to complete.
