If you will be moving to France, have a date and know when you will be arriving in the country, doing everything in advance can make the move much easier.
Here are just a few things you can do ahead of time to ensure that that does happen.
Book your moving company — The faster you book a moving company to move all your belongings for you, the cheaper and easier it will be.
Consider things like how many belongings you will be taking, when they need to be moved, if you can share a van with someone else and how flexible you can be on moving dates. All of these will impact how much you will ultimately pay for removals to France.
Organize a place to stay — If you do not have a home to move into, be sure to organize a place to stay well in advance of your moving date.
Whether that is a hotel or a flat, the sooner you know where you will be moving to the more stress-free the move will be.
Do you need to arrange storage? — Some removals to France require storage before a new home can be moved into.
If this is your case, check with the removal companies you talk to as many of them do offer storage facilities for a small fee. Do it well in advance, and they may even charge you less.
Open a bank account — Finally, be sure to open a French bank account ahead of time so that, once you get there and have bills to pay, you can do it all easily.
There is nothing worse than having to pay for a moving expense and not having an easy way to do it in the time needed.
