Moving from the UK to Europe / Europe to the UK
Moving to or from most of Europe is quite simple, although it may appear daunting. Currently, there are no restrictions or customs formalities when moving household goods to/from Europe. However, it is advisable to consult a removal company who is familiar with the different laws and driving restrictions of European countries, to ensure a smooth and trouble-free move. .
Your possessions are precious to you, so you will want a removal company you can trust to transport them safely and efficiently over many miles.
Weston & Edwards Group have the knowledge & expertise which, when combined with the care, consideration and reliability afforded by a well established family firm, gives you complete peace of mind.
Most moves to mainland Europe are by road and for full loads and most part-loads, we always use our own trucks and our own, fully trained removal staff. Some destination like islands and remote areas are best served by a shipping container service
This is still the most economical and efficient method for removals to France, Spain, Ireland & most European countries. The countries best served by road are:
Austria, Belgium, Channel Isles*, Czech Rep, Denmark, France, Germany, Holland, Hungary, Ireland, Isle of Man, Luxembourg, N Ireland, Northern Italy (Rome and above), Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland*, UK mainland
*Our staff can clear customs on entry to Switzerland and the Channel Islands.
Moves to Scandinavia & the East Mediterranean are more economical and efficient by container shipment.
Our door to door container service is efficient, safe and economical and ideal for destinations that are harder to reach by conventional road removal trucks – the islands of Cyprus, Malta and countries that take a long time to travel to via road and ferries, like Norway, Sweden, Finland, Greece Bulgaria and Turkey
For urgent smaller loads we can supply a dedicated small van and removal staff. Handy if you’re unable to wait for a part load.
Favourable rates can be given for small loads or individual items as part loads, by shipping container or removal lorry. You only pay for the space you need
In some cases, like when moving to or from Switzerland or the Channel Islands more complex documentation is required when moving overseas and this can be quite a daunting prospect. Weston and Edwards can handle all the paperwork and customs clearance for any country.
