Furnishing Your Holiday Home In France

France is still the most popular country for many British people who wish to buy a holiday home. Because it is easy to get to by car or a short flight the house can be used more often during the year. If you are thinking of buying in France take a minute to think about how you will furnish your holiday home. Although driving round flea markets and second hand dealers can be a fun part of a holiday buying all your furniture and white goods in the UK is more sensible.

Moving them to France is simple with the services of an experienced removals company like us here at Europe Remove. The furniture and other goods that you need to take to your holiday home can be collected at your convenience, stored if required, and then delivered when you are there to receive them. Furniture and white goods are generally cheaper in the UK and many people already have furniture that they would like to use in the new house so the cost of shipping included you will still save money as many people who are moving to France discover too late.

When you are moving to France, to a holiday home, you actually want to be able to be comfortably settled there as soon as possible. Then you can enjoy your holiday time to the full and not come home exhausted so it makes perfect sense to put in the majority of the furnishings in one go. Of course you will still want to potter round the Vide Grenier picking up beautiful French pieces for your home but that will be part of the pleasure of your holidays to your home in France, rather than something to stress you out when you should be enjoying your Bon Vacances.

A Year In Europe

Most British Universities offer degrees that require students to spend a year in a European country. Generally the degrees are either language or business based but either way moving to France, moving to Germany, or moving to Holland or whichever country is involved, can be a great adventure. Even with the best intentions of keeping the stuff you take when you are moving to Germany to a minimum you may find that you need to take more than you first thought.

Shipping personal belongings to another European country doesn’t have to break the bank, generally you can find a removals company, like us at Europe Remove, who will have space for a part-load. This is when they move more than one person’s goods in the same vehicle and because the cost is divided it makes it cheaper when you are moving to France for your year’s experience. If you are moving with friends on the same course then you could get together to move everything in one load and split the costs.

Of course you are likely to find that even if you get there with very little you will pick up rather a lot of stuff in the year that you are there and we often find that we are called in to help people move all their accumulated things back to the UK, after all we do have removal vans going both ways. So you don’t have to give up all those wonderful things you bought you can bring them back to be treasured for a life time. When you are ready to make your move just get it all wrapped and boxed up and we can do the rest for you so you can concentrate on more important things like studying, or a night out in a great bar.

Retiring To The Sun

Regardless of how the pound and the Euro behave there are thousands of British couples who decide to pack up and move to France when they retire. And who can blame them when the pace of living is a little slower, the food is better and in many areas the weather is better throughout the year. Settling into a new country and a new way of life is actually far easier if you have your own things round you so generally when the retirees go abroad they will take the contents of their homes with them.

Moving to France with your own furnishings can be far more cost effective than buying new when you get there and certainly means that the feel of being home can be created immediately. A specialist removal company, like us at Europe Remove, will take any hassle out of the move and deliver to your new home at a date to suit you rather than us. Our wagons are helping people moving to France every week and we can even offer to move part-loads if you don’t want to take everything when you move.

If the property that you are moving to in France is not immediately habitable we can arrange to store your possessions in the interim so that it can be delivered as and when you are ready to receive it, after all many people buy properties that they are going to either renovate or at least bring up to date. When you are moving to France using the right removal company can make a huge difference to the amount of stress you feel so do make sure that you pick one that has plenty of experience and knows the ropes so that everything goes smoothly to help you ease into your new life.
