From Amsterdam to Athens, Rouen to Rotterdam or Eindhoven to Edinburgh; let Matthew James take the stress out of your move.
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.

Moving to The Netherlands has been an easy and rewarding experience for many expats who now call Holland their home. Its excellent links to France, Germany and Belgium, as well as the rest of mainland Europe, make it one of the best-connected and culturally rich countries in the world. The Dutch strive towards an egalitarian society and are known for their incredibly welcoming approaches to other cultures, religions and communities. With a population of over 17 million, it is one of the most densely populated countries in Europe. While this may put pressure on property prices it is also the reason that Holland is seen as one of the most culturally diverse and exciting countries to relocate to.

Expats moving to Holland will generally find it very easy to adjust to the Dutch way of life. In fact, expats are so welcome in Holland that they are allowed to vote in local elections if they have residency status. Certain foreign workers are also permitted a 30 percent tax free allowance on their incomes, which coupled with Holland having one of the lowest unemployment rates in Europe, makes for a very attractive employment destination. Almost everyone is Holland is tolerant of non-Dutch speakers and will speak English to a high level. However, learning at least the basics of Dutch will definitely endear you to the locals and make your life easier, especially when it comes to employment opportunities where the ability to speak Dutch will be a significant advantage.
If you are a EU national or British citizen you do not require a visa to enter Holland but you must hold a valid EU/British passport. You will also need to register at your local Municipality Administration (GBA) if you are planning on remaining in Holland for more than 3 months. Please note that – above the age of 14 – you are legally obliged to carry photographic ID at all times as proof of residency status while living in Holland. There is an on-the-spot fine if you fail to produce ID when asked so be warned! It is also mandatory to purchase health care coverage within 4 months of relocating to Holland. The basic health insurance in Holland covers general medical care, including hospital and GP visits as well as basic dental care.
