Use A Firm Experienced In Overseas Removals

You may have occasionally heard it declared that moving house can be one of the most stressful undertakings known to humankind.  Admittedly this claim might be slightly over egging the cake – however, short of wars and natural disasters it does fairly succinctly capture the fact that moving house can be, and frequently is, very stressful. Add in the complications of not simply moving down the road or even to another UK town but to mainland Europe and clearly there is a whole new layer of potential trouble ahead.

Whether moving to France, moving to Germany or any other EU country, where you will benefit in making the whole experience much more straightforward is employing the services of a company that specialises in moving between mainland Europe and the UK. At European Removal Experts Ltd, we are a London based company that specialises in exactly this type of removal. In exactly the same way that you don’t visit the local English Chip shop for a sampling of Poulet et Frites, you shouldn’t be looking to a typical UK removal firm to help you navigate the roads and customs of moving to France.

The service offered is scalable to your needs and we offer removal of single items of furniture or complete or part loads to first, second or even third homes. Our service can assist in passing your belongings through customs with minimal effort and most importantly it can be ensured that either your handful of boxes or the entire house contents arrive at their destination when they are needed and in good order.

When moving to France or other European countries, the basic job of moving physical items may be the same, but the cultures, rules and expectations are not, so rather than be the guinea pig for a UK company to experiment with, choose a specialist provider.

Swiss Timing

Many of us think nothing of travelling to European countries such as France, Germany or Belgium for either business or leisure trips. Membership of the European Union facilitates easy travel and enables many to find employment throughout much of Europe with minimal fuss. Even visits to non European Union countries such as Switzerland are typically very straightforward and usually trouble-free.

Despite the ease of travel between these countries, the prospect of moving to Germany or moving to France involves a bigger commitment. At the best of times, moving house is a significant project. At the worst of times, it can feel one step from disaster at any point. Moving overseas clearly adds another dimension of complication through both the more complex logistics and the added difficulty of customs clearance. Moving to Switzerland places additional challenges in the form of very strict customs rules and also local laws surrounding behaviour in and around your property.

In order to ensure that any move to Europe runs smoothly, and particularly moving to a unique location such as Switzerland it is hugely beneficial to employ the services of a specialist removal firm. At European Removal Experts, we are exactly this specialist company. We are based in London where we are perfectly located to serve the British Isles in their movements of belongings both to and from Europe.

When moving to Switzerland, we can move either full loads in one easy go or smaller deliveries can be made. For smaller deliveries, we offer the capacity to share container space which ensures that the process is as cost effective as possible. It can be beneficial to not receive all of your belongings in one go and partial transport may be a clever way to achieve this when moving to Switzerland.

When utilising expert assistance, moving to Switzerland can run like clockwork.

Don’t Experiment

Any house removal benefits from both previous experience and meticulous planning. Typically, for most of us, the only way to apply experience to the whole process is in the removal company that we select. Many of us will have experience of moving house at least once and quite possibly more, but with these experiences commonly being spread over a period of many years, the knowledge we acquire is not very often put to practical use.

When moving abroad, such as when moving to Germany or moving to Switzerland, the knowledge and experience required becomes even further specialised. At European Removal Experts, our service is aimed at providing a removal service that will navigate the additional complications and pitfalls you may encounter by moving abroad.

When moving to Germany from any location in the British Isles, you can benefit from either dedicated vehicles and an experienced team offering a full removal service to partial loads put into a cost effective shared container, we are able to fulfil these needs.

With vast experience and an in depth knowledge of both customs procedures and the local laws and regulations that may affect your move, we are able to ensure that your belongings move easily between Europe and the UK. In addition to moving to Germany and other European countries, we also cater for removals from Europe back to the UK.

Collections can be arranged from anywhere in the UK and our service offers door to door delivery of either a handful of items which could be either valuable or large and difficult to move or a full house move. Any of these deliveries are handled on a regular basis. What this means is that the safety of your possessions and the swift transportation of them to your new home are regarded as a matter of course.

European Removal Experts Expand Their European Fleet

European Removal Experts, efficient suppliers of removals around the EU for clients moving to France, Germany and many other destinations, have now expanded their fleet and have even more vehicles running through various locations across Europe.

Due to further success as renowned professionals in their field, European Removal Experts are able to offer their clients further productivity due to the recent expansion of their assets, whether they are moving to Belgium on business or relocating domestically to Holland or elsewhere in Europe.

The option for clients to have their belongings transferred privately in a fully-insured vehicle is increasing in popularity, as European Removal Experts can now offer their services with the promise of even better service. To add further convenience, the expansion of Europe Removal’s fleet also makes it much more achievable for clients to employ the services of numerous vehicles for the transportation of their goods; making moving to Switzerland, France or Spain incredibly simple, no matter what size the job.

“We are excited to announce the expansion of our fleet, as it means that we can now serve a larger population of people around the EU,” comments Christian Popovici of European Removal Experts. “Employing a removals company you can trust to deliver your belongings with a quality-assurance and time efficiency is a priority when relocating, which is why we strive as a company to make the entire process effortless and affordable. Having more vehicles at our disposable not only makes this process easier for us as a company, but gives our clients peace of mind that whatever their personal requirements, we have them covered.”

Stress Reduction Techniques

Why is moving house considered to be so stressful? Assuming we do accept that it is stressful, the question then becomes, “What can we possibly do to reduce this stress?” If we have already accepted that moving house is stressful, supposing we add an additional layer of complication by, for example, moving to Germany, or moving to France, or another continental Europe country such as Belgium, Spain, The Netherlands or Switzerland?

Planning your move carefully is vital to reducing the amount of stress you may experience. Every single step of the moving process can benefit from a bit of planning, although it is fair to acknowledge that some less critical aspects can be done on the hoof, if intricate planning is not your thing. As most of us will have limited experience in the moving process, effective planning will benefit greatly from some expert input. Taking the example of moving to Germany and we believe that, at European Removal Experts, we are the first choice experts to help with both the planning and execution of your move.

We are a London-based company. This puts us in the ideal geographic location for arranging moving from the UK to Germany or the continent. For different individuals and families, a move can represent very different things. For some it is simply a matter of a few items being despatched to a second residence or for others, a complete house move abroad. As a result, there is no one-size-fits-all moving technique. Our services include dedicated removal vehicles for complete house moves but it is also possible to share space within containers for cost effective lower volume removals.

Ensuring that your goods pass freely through customs and that your belongings are not held up through a misunderstanding of local or regional practices is achieved through the expert knowledge that many typical removal firms may not necessarily be able to offer.

Local Knowledge Throughout Europe

Moving house is undoubtedly a significant challenge for anybody and yet some people appear to manage this challenge as though it is part of their daily routine and seemingly get from A to B with minimum of fuss.

It is well understood that some people are far more organised than others and will accordingly make things run more smoothly. However, one of the key differences between the successful mover and the troubled one is the moving company that they use.

Clearly, adding an extra dimension to your house move by moving to France or elsewhere in Europe does take the planning requirement to a higher level. With this added dimension, it becomes even more important to ensure that your removal company specialises in handling the nuances of a move abroad such as when moving to France or moving to Germany.

The subtleties of moving abroad surround elements such as crossing the channel and the customs clearance that this necessitates. Rather than employing a willing novice company to learn the ropes of moving to France at your expense, we at European Removal Experts are simply managing what we do best on a daily basis. Our service is not simply restricted to one way removals. In many cases our services are utilised by people and families returning from France or other European countries. A move does not always necessitate a full household removal. Services can be simply the carrying of one or a handful of valuable or bulky items right up to a full removal van.

Wherever your destination in France may be, you need to be sure that your removal company is able to plan the requirements on your behalf and will be familiar with the processes and quirks of moving to France, a little local knowledge and familiarity with customs may save a great deal of worry.

A Few Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Belgium

For anyone planning on emigrating from the UK, Belgium is perhaps not at the top of your list as a potential destination. However, there are a variety of reasons why moving to Belgium could actually be the best decision that you will ever make.

If you like beer, then its fair to say that Belgium is a bit of a paradise and despite its relatively modest size, it produces around 800 different beers – and you thought us Brits like beer! Relocating to Belgium has never been more excting.

Of course Belgium isn’t all about beer – the chocolate is also world-renowned. Belgium is also one of the most cultured countries on the planet, with a history even to rival our own. Did you know, for example, that in 1066 the city of Huy in Belgium received a charter of rights, making it the oldest free city on the continent.

Maybe these are some of the reasons behind the fact that Belgium grants more new citizenships per year second only to Canada, ensuring that by moving to Belgium you will not only be welcomed with open arms, but you’ll have something in common with 15% of the population.

Don’t worry even if you haven’t considered moving to Belgium before, because at European Removal Experts we certainly have. That is why we are able to offer door to door removals throughout Belgium, and can offer our services either on a part or full load basis, whether your moving to Belgium or you simply want to make a delivery.

Things to Remember when Emigrating from the UK

At European Removal Experts we recognise that moving home and relocating overseas to countries such as France is one of the most stressful events in anybody’s life, and moving to a whole new country even more so. That is why we always endeavour to offer you removal service that is not only affordable, but which answers your specific requirements – ensuring that the excitement of moving overseas is left undisturbed. However, we are aware that as a removal company, beyond making the removals transition as simple as possible, there is much more to consider that often gets forgotten along the way.

Whether you’re moving to Belgium or moving to Holland, moving to another country is a massive logistical undertaking. Therefore the following advice will only cover the tip of the iceberg, but some important things to remember before hiring a removals company to Holland or Belgium include the following:

  • Let all of the relevant authorities and organisations you are involved in know about you moving. This will include schools, workplaces and the less obvious organisations, such as the DVLA.
  • Make sure you have everything in place at your destination. Again, this may seem obvious but you should remember every last detail about your move; from air conditioning in your house to anything that you may need regularly imported.
  • Try and learn some the lingo. This is not only a simple courtesy, but it will save you a lot of hassle and will protect you if any issues arise.

Remember, it doesn’t matter where your moving to when it comes to the necessary precautions. Whether you’re moving to Holland or moving to Belgium, each country will have their own way of doing things, which is why you should always ensure that you have a good awareness of your destination before embarking.

Germany - Here We Come

Germany – Here We Come

Moving to Germany may be the sort of undertaking that fills an individual with trepidation. For any of us, moving house, or simply moving part of a houses contents involves dealing with companies and activities that few of us deal with on a regular basis. Moving overseas increases complications through the greater complexity involved in crossing a controlled border in addition to encountering different local customs and legislation. Lastly, let’s not forget, a different language. Whilst it is possible to navigate around much of Europe with English as an only language, a bit more versatility both smoothes the path and engenders a more positive relationship with those you meet.

At European Removal Experts, our service is primarily geared up to assisting people moving to Germany or even possibly the other direction (back from Germany). We are a London based company which, being close to the midpoint between the continent and the UK, makes us ideally located for planning moves between the UK and the continent. Our aim is to move goods efficiently whether it is a complete house move or simply a smaller quantity of special items such as valuables or large pieces of furniture.

Moving to Germany is offered as a door to door service but there are also discount services available. These are offered where container space is shared by many customers on a scheduled basis. This enables a very cost effective method for moving to Germany from anywhere in the UK.

Customs clearance and all of the complications surrounding any house move are handled as part of the moving to Germany service and this enables the customer to focus their energies on other aspects of the house move, such as soft furnishings and possibly brushing up on a bit of sprechen sie Deutsch? Why use anybody other than specialists in this area for your house move?

Is Great Food And Drink The Best Reason For Moving To Belgium?

Best Reason For Moving To Belgium?

Most people think of chocolate when they think of Belgium, and for good reason. Belgium hosts some of the greatest artisan chocolate makers on earth. Non-chocolate lovers would tell you to visit Belgium for the beer, while others might say to skip it entirely; Bruges was recently voted the most boring city in Europe.

Holland has a reputation – mostly down to Amsterdam – for being more exciting and racy than Belgium, but in truth they share many of the same characteristics that makes moving to Holland open to similar considerations as moving to Belgium.

Both countries have a friendly but reserved local population. Before moving to Belgium, do not expect that you will immediately fall into a group of great friends. It will take time to meet people and from there it will take time to become a friend and not just an acquaintance. Learning the very basics of the working languages of Belgium and Holland before moving to Belgium or moving to Holland, will help to ease your way into these friendships. Being able to speak a little of the local language will also make it easier and more enjoyable for you to do everyday basic things such as food shopping and going out for a drink.

Both Belgium and Holland benefit from great food and drink – everything from chocolate to beer to Dutch cheeses. In the cosmopolitan capital cities of both Belgium and Holland you will find a wide range of cuisine from many countries.

Art and culture are two other reasons for moving to Belgium and Holland. Visiting museums and galleries are a great way of getting to know the area, and also give you something to discuss with your potential friends.

Moving abroad is a challenging and exciting experience but planning in advance will help smooth the journey. Worried about getting your furniture and much-loved possessions to your new home?
