Moving to, from or within Italy? We have regular vehicles servicing all of your Italian removals relocation needs.
From full relocations to shared loads, baggage and even single items; let Matthew James take the stress out of your removal.
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.

Italy is situated in the very heart of the Mediterranean Sea and is bordered by Switzerland, France, Austria, Slovenia and San Marino. It has a population of nearly 61 million people, which makes it the fourth most populous country in the EU. Italy’s Mediterranean climate is one the main reasons why so many people choose to move to Italy – the summers are hot and dry while the winters are generally mild. The north of Italy often sees a lot of snow in the winter, which is great news for ski enthusiasts who can benefit from Italy’s many world-class ski resorts. Although English is widely spoken – especially in the larger cities such as Rome and Venice – you would be well advised to learn some basic Italian. This will prove a great advantage, not only in day-to-day life, but also when seeking employment opportunities, as business culture in Italy is very much a social affair.
After moving to Italy, you will need to apply for residency at your local town hall (or Commune – Ufficio Anagrafe) if you intend to remain in Italy for over 3 months. Here you will be given a certificate that is valid for 5 years from the date it is issued. You will then be able to apply for permanent residency after 5 years residency if you are an EU national. It is also important to obtain your Italian tax code (or codice fiscale) – you can actually do this before leaving the UK by applying to the Italian Consulate. This obligatory tax code is vital to living in Italy and is essential for many day-to-day dealings, such as opening bank accounts and finding a job.
