Some Of The Things To Consider When Moving To France
Posted on 23rd July 2021 at 12:13
If you are moving to France, there are a lot of things to take into consideration. One of the first things is to take into account whether or not you have sufficient money not just to move, but to live for several months in France. Even if you have a job to go to you are not going to get a pay cheque until the end of the first month, but that is the least of your problems. When you move abroad there are always things that you haven’t though about or things that crop up, which mean that you have to buy bits and pieces that you haven’t allowed for. The best advice for moving abroad, even if it is only across the Channel, is to be certain that you have enough to live on for six months.
Another very good idea is to get rid of all the “stuff” that you don’t need. So many of us acquire things over the years that seemed like a good idea at the time, or that have fallen into disuse, and yet cannot bear to be parted from them. Moving home is the time to get rid: sell them, give them to a charity shop or friends, hold a garage sale, or just take them to the tip. The less that you move, the less it is going to cost you to do so.
Now it may seem like a good idea to do the packing yourself in order to save some money, but this is rather a case of cutting corners. Whether you need France removals or New Zealand removals, having your goods professionally packed will see to it that they arrive at your destination in the same condition that they left. Packing items safely is a skill that has to be learned in the same way as any other skill.
Even so, you need to take out insurance for your belongings in transit. Many people believe that their goods are covered by the removal company’s insurance, but the fact is that this is limited. It can also be complicated, depending upon what and who were in charge of the goods at the time of any damage or loss. Insurance coverage for France removals will not be very expensive and will give you peace of mind in case anything is lost or damaged on the way.
Despite the best efforts of our team of packers and movers at Movers International, there are always outside situations that are beyond our control. Consider the possibility of a crash on the motorway in which our removals lorry is involved through no fault of our driver. It is a rare sort of possibility, but then again it can happen.
Wherever you are moving to in France, at Movers International we can get you there. We have weekly road train runs to France too, so if you only need to move a few items they can go on one of these which will save you money. If you are moving to one of the small villages in the Alps where the roads are narrow, we can switch your belongings into smaller vans in order to get you to wherever you need to be. Just let us know beforehand so that we can arrange everything so that it runs smoothly.
We can also store your goods here at our depot in Preston if you are not able to move into your new home in France immediately. Storage is free for four weeks, and you can also have any new furniture or other items that you are buying sent direct to us by the supplier so that they can be included in your move.fran
