Looking for a professional and friendly Paris removal service?
Matthew James removals service to and from Paris range from dedicated removals to shared-loads or even single items.
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.
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.
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.

Paris is divided into 20 arrondissements (or districts), with the lower numbers located at the centre of the city. As with most major cities, different districts have different qualities and naturally come with different price ranges. For example, the Latin Quarter that spans the fifth and sixth arrondissement is an ideal location for expat families due to the high concentration of schools, while the sixteenth arrondissement is the traditional home of Paris high society and embassies so property prices are predictably higher. Expats living in Paris can also expect some of the best educational institutions in the world. Paris is home to some of the finest free state schools in France, such as the Lycée Louis-le-Grand and Lycée Henri-IV, and also boasts four of the world’s top universities, which include the École Polytechnique and the École Normale Supérieure.
Although there are many English speakers in France – especially in Paris –learning French will greatly help you get under the skin of this stunning and vibrant city. This is especially the case if you intend to work in Paris, as an inability to speak French will significantly hinder your job prospects, as well as make day-to-day life that much more difficult.
Citizens of EU or EEA countries do not need to apply for a visa to live and work in Paris but expats are required to register at their local Mairie (Town Hall) within three months of arriving. EU and EAA citizens can also apply for their European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) roughly six weeks before moving to Paris, enabling them to bill their home government healthcare provider for any medical treatment. However, once you become a French citizen you are entitled to the same health care rights as your neighbouring Parisians. Likewise, if you are working in France you qualify for Securité Sociale (French state health insurance). Move information on living in France can be found at the GOV.uk website.
