Recent global supply chains disruptions and Covid restrictions have caused many to rethink their international shipping and moving strategies. Even when considering a move to France there are a few important considerations to make to ensure your items get there just fine. 
 
While there are a few new post-Brexit uncertainties about the rules regarding moving furniture to France, we’ve collected a few things to keep in mind based on what we already know. 
International moves are expensive. Whether you're trying to negotiate a relocation package with your employer or looking for direct quotes from third-party shipping providers, the cost of moving so far away can soon add up. 
 
If you are planning a relocation and are worried about the container shipping costs when working with international shipping companies, we’ve collected a few pieces of advice. Here are some things you can do to save money on international removals. 
Moving home is always an exciting experience, but it can also be nerve-wracking because there are so many things to think about and to take care of that you can begin to worry that you might have forgotten something. At Movers International, the first piece of advice that we can give is to sit down and make a list of everything that needs to be done – and we do mean everything – and after you have done that, go through the list carefully and sort it into the order by which everything should be done and the dates that they should be done by. 
Portugal is a country that a lot of people visit for a holiday, especially the Algarve, for its’ stunning countryside, lovely weather, and for many, the amazing golf courses. On the eastern border there are some dramatic mountains in the Serra de Sao mountain park, in the north-west there are the Minho lakes, and there is Peneda-Geres National Park which is home to deer, wolves, and even golden eagles. There are also wonderful little mediaeval villages here too. 
France is a very popular destination for people in Britain who are retiring and would like the relaxed way of life out in the French countryside, or perhaps the warmth of the Mediterranean coast. Many of us learned some French at school and have been there on holidays so have got to know some of the places, and enjoy French cooking. 
 
If you are thinking of moving to Spain, you need to spend some time doing your homework because there are a lot of things to take into consideration. Sure, you may have been there on holiday. You may even have been several times. But a two-week holiday is very different from living there, full time. 
Moving home can be an incredibly complicated task for the simple reason that there are so many things that you have to do both before you move and after arrival in your new home. This is true whether you move down the road, across town, to the other end of the country, or even to another country. 
If you are planning to move to France, as of January 1st you will now need a visa since we are no longer part of the EU, and you can get this from the French embassy. There are different types of visa depending upon your situation: for example, you may already have relatives living in France, so you need to check which one you need. Unless you are on a pension, you will also need a work permit. 
At Movers International, as international movers and packers, we can move you anywhere in the world. We go wherever you want to go, and we have many years of experience, so it is almost a certainty that – unless you are going to some far-flung island in the Antarctic such as Deception Island, Bouvet Island, and so on – we have been there before, even if you have not.
