There are so many reasons to relocate to France, but it isn’t easy to know where to begin. The country has an amazing climate, gorgeous cuisine, renowned history and fantastic culture. They also have very diverse regions, from the stunning wine country around Bordeaux to the majestic Alps, sunny Mediterranean or magical Paris. So, you may have decided to relocate, but now you must ensure that you can safely and securely transport your possessions. But where should you start with this process?
Start With the Basics
Now that you can hardly contain your excitement, you need to turn to the nitty-gritty and figure out your logistics. And you want to ensure that you are equally as excited about your move when you are firmly ensconced in your new place as you are right now.
Unfortunately, some people in your situation may have nothing but a horror story to recount. They may have chosen a moving company in haste because they were short of time and have lived to regret that decision. So, don’t follow in their footsteps — start your process as early as possible so you have enough time to vet your removalist and won’t need to make any rushed decisions.
Reach Out With Questions
Many of the better international removals companies allow you to get a quotation online or arrange for a representative to visit your home. For example, at Matthew James Global Relocations, we will send an experienced staff member to assess the job and give you a firm quotation. Our representative will be ready to answer as many questions as you have, and remember that there is no such thing as a silly question when it comes to an important job like this. Your Move Manager will explain what’s involved and you can rest assured that there won’t be any hidden extras to surprise you.
Research Your Moving Partner
You should always do your research and look for testimonials to give you that added peace of mind. Go to a trusted website like www.reviews.co.uk, and you’ll be able to see what kind of service that particular company provides. At Matthew James Relocations, we are proud of all our reviews and delighted that we have been able to please so many customers as they move to France and other countries.
You also need to check how long the company has been in business to ensure it is financially stable. Then, consider their achievements and accreditations to help give you additional confidence.
Look for Awards and Accreditations
Matthew James Relocations has been winning awards since 2013 when we were “packer of the year” at the Movers and Storers Show. In 2018, we received the “Mega Growth 50” award for being one of the fastest-growing businesses in Kent.
We are also very conscious of the environment and do everything we can to be good corporate citizens. This led us to gain the ISO 14001 accreditation in 2019 in recognition of our commitment to environmental standards. We are also the owner of the UK’s first hybrid large goods vehicle removal truck. Most recently, we were awarded ISO 45001 in recognition of our company’s commitment to international occupational health and safety management standards.
You’ll be pleased that you performed all your due diligence well ahead of your planned move to France, and when the big day arrives, you’ll be satisfied with the result.
Trust the Experience
When you choose a company like Matthew James Global Relocations, you’ll get an international moving squad with fully trained and experienced operatives. They know how to pack and move all your belongings to prevent any damage or loss. Then, they will move your shipment as quickly as possible to France (or any other location), ensuring that everything arrives at the destination safely and on time.
You may own some very precious items or pieces of furniture that are particularly vulnerable. As top-quality removalist, we will take particular care to secure these using bespoke packing, individual boxes or crates.
Save Your Energy
A good international removals company will also ensure that you can step back and do not need to wear yourself out on moving day. They’ll take care of the heavy lifting, so you won’t need to struggle with those sofas, wardrobes and other bulky items. Your moving team will also know if anything needs some additional attention to prepare for the trip ahead. After all, an international move like this is much more complex than a simple relocation across town. And remember, you’ll be able to discuss the finer details of your move with your company representatives ahead of time, so you will be aware of any particular worries and plan accordingly.
Reduce That Stress
Moving home can be one of the most stressful things you do in life, and you want to reduce tension as much as possible. So when you choose a company like Matthew James Global Relocations, you can breathe more easily and know that our specialist staff will take care of all your prized and sentimental possessions at every stage of the journey. In addition, you can be sure that we will pack all those fragile, smaller items carefully while securing any larger items so they do not move around in transit.
Get Help with Storage
For some people, a major relocation like this has to be tackled in stages. For example, you may need to move out of your current home (as you may have sold it to another party) but are not quite ready to travel to France. In this situation, Matthew James can offer you temporary storage facilities. We will look after your possessions just as carefully when they are in storage with us as we will during the actual journey. We keep everything neat and secure until you tell us that you’re ready to retrieve them or ask us to forward them to your new address. Rest assured, we have several storage units of different sizes, with something sure to satisfy your needs.
