    In order to determine the amount of effects being carried to France, a fully licenced and professional surveyor can arrange to visit your home or do a virtual survey online.

    The amount of space your belongings will occupy in our vehicles will determine the final shipping price.

    All home inspections and quotes are provided without charge or commitment.

    The surveyor would be delighted to address any queries you may have and, if necessary, provide guidance on your move.

    We always strive to calculate the cost of your move to France as quickly as possible and can expect to receive your quote within 48 hours of the survey being conducted.

    Direct Service and Part Loads

    At Curtiss Moving & Storage we always aim to provide our customers with the exact service they need.

    We typically offer two services for customers needing removals to France.

    This includes either Direct consignments that take your belongings straight from point A to B. Alternatively, part loads are delivered shortly after your arrival.

    Direct services provide the benefit of delivering your goods all in one go and are typically faster than part-loads. This service is the more expensive of the two options but is ideal for those who have an exact moving date and a slightly bigger move.

    However, for those who might be staggering your move to France or renting somewhere before you decide to move in somewhere permanently, part-loads could be ideal.

    By using this service you can lower moving costs by sharing a container with another mover’s belongings.

    Many of our customers combine this service with our storage services while they decide what they want to do with their personal effects.

    Transit Times

    Transit times when moving to France will vary depending on whether you have chosen a direct consignment or a part load.

    Other factors including the route involved, the location in the country and the time of year will also influence the overall time. 

    Typically, transit times are anywhere between 5-10 days, but we will keep you well informed throughout your whole move. 

    Your dedicated move manager will be able to answer all of you questions regarding transit times as well as any changes to this timeframe. 

    Export Packing

    To guarantee that your furniture, belongings, and personal effects arrive in France in the same condition as when they left the UK, we offer a professional packing service.

    The goods being transported will be export packaged and wrapped in special, breathable bubble wrap by our expert team before being securely loaded for the move.

    Special wooden crates can be made to order to fit bulky or delicate high-value items, minimising any potential harm to even your most priceless treasures during transit.

    Despite our best efforts, items can get damaged, move in transit, or go missing from time to time, which are outside of our control.

    Our staff always try to minimise such problems during the moving process. That’s why we offer limited liability insurance as set out in our terms and conditions for BAR members.

    If you provide us with an insurance declaration of the value of your goods, the amount of our liability to you in the event of loss or damage to those goods will be a maximum of £50,000. We can accept insurance liability for a higher amount, in which case we may make an additional charge.
