From Abedeen to Arrundal or Bastia to Birmingham; let Matthew James take the stress out of your removal to Corsica or across Europe.
EUROPEAN SHARED LOAD
A part/shared load service is a cost effective way to move your goods to and from your destination. The reason this service is so cost effective is that you share the vehicle with other consignments and therefore the vehicle costs are also shared. All consignments are individually prepared, numbered, labelled and inventoried to ensure all items are correctly delivered to you. The main advantage of a part load service is that you will receive the Matthew James service of excellence at the most cost effective price.
EUROPEAN PREMIUM SERVICE
A direct service combines Matthew James’ service of excellence with the added advantage of a dedicated collection date and express delivery timescale. Handling of your effects is minimised as they remain on the same vehicle throughout. Although your delivery will be carried out in conjunction with other clients’ consignments, this means you will share the cost of the vehicle and your consignment will be prioritised for onward delivery typically within 7-10 days of collection.
EUROPEAN DEDICATED SERVICE
A dedicated service gives you the flexibility to choose your collection and delivery dates. This service means you will have exclusive use of one of our bespoke removal vehicles. This service guarantees the Matthew James service of excellence and peace of mind that your moving dates can be fixed, allowing you the convenience to make travel arrangements and plan your arrival. All delivery dates are subject to EU laws on driving time. We can confirm the timing prior to any booking.

One of the Mediterranean’s best-kept secrets is undoubtedly Corsica. Some 1,000kms from the mainland capital of Paris, in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, is the indisputably beautiful island of Corsica.

Birthplace of Napoleon, Corsica has a rich and varied history. Originally belonging to Italy and occupied by Britain at several points in its recent history – and even the USA in the Second World War – Corsica has developed its own distinctive culture and dialect. From the bustling capital of Bastia in the north of the island to the breath-taking coastlines of the west and south, Corsica has something for everyone. This picturesque island offers expats an incredible variety of golden beaches, towering mountain ranges, untouched forests and peaceful lakes, all waiting to be explored by you.
Although around 2 million tourists are attracted to Corsica each year, tourism has not spoiled the island. The main resorts do get busy in the holiday season but there are still plenty of mountain towns, sleepy villages and vacant beaches for you to enjoy.
Moving around Corsica is easy and enjoyable as there are no complicated roads and everywhere you drive is so scenic. Corsica is also easily accessible by air and has four airports in the towns of Calvi, Bastia, Figari and Ajaccio. The cheapest and easiest way to get to Corsica is by sea. This way you can admire the stunning Corscian coastline and enjoy the refreshing Mediterranean Sea breeze aboard one of its regular ferry services from Italy.
Once you have moved to Corsica, you will need to apply for residency at your local town hall (or Commune – Ufficio Anagrafe). This will enable you to apply for permanent residency in Corsica after 5 years if you are a EU or EEA citizen. It is also important to obtain your Italian tax code (or codice fiscale), which you can acquire from the Italian Consulate. This tax code is crucial to living in Corsica and is necessary for many day-to-day tasks, such as opening bank accounts, finding a job, setting up a phone line and buying a car.
