Moving to France

France moving and removals guide

Moving to France
France is one of Abels’ main destination – we are moving people to France all the time, and our vehicles also have to go through France to get to the rest of Europe. There are over 200,000 expats in France, with numerous others owning second and holiday homes in the country, especially the south of France and French Riviera.

As France is in the EU, moving to France is fairly straightforward with few formalities that have to be gone through. There are no official documents required for personal effects and household goods being moved from another EU country.

Moving to France will be via a dedicated vehicle and team. We will come to your home and load your furniture and effects into a pantechnicon, transport them to France via the Channel Tunnel or ferry, and then unload at destination. If required, we will also pack at origin and unpack at destination.

France is one of three major economies in the EU, and the sixth largest economy in the world. With an area of some 675,000 sq km it is more than twice the size of the UK, but the 64 million population is not dissimilar to the UK.

France has a very distinctive style all of its own, with architecture and the arts at the forefront. The capital and main commercial centre is Paris.
