These are a few things that make up your moving costs:
Since Brexit there have been changes to the Customs Clearance process for moves into EU countries. Your move manager will guide you through the process to help you prepare.
It is more important than ever to use a qualified and professional European Removals Company when moving from the UK to Europe.
The documentation, processes and customs requirements are no longer straightforward, so your removal company needs to have implemented the correct procedures to ensure everything runs smoothly and you are not faced with additional charges if these have not been followed.
This depends on your individual requirements.
Economy European Removals Services
If you are completely flexible on move dates and want to keep costs down then our economy service offers all our same high standard of packing and removals services whilst you share the transport with other customers, allowing us to split the costs of transport to offer you our most competitive prices.
Dedicated European Removals Services
If your dates are fixed or you have a large volume of belongings to move then our dedicated dates or dedicated vehicles are perfect for you. If there is space left on your vehicle and you’re willing to share it then we will combine this with other customers heading to the same location to share the costs of transport.
Shared load / part load Removals Services
If you only need a small amount of space then our economy service can help. We have regular trips to some of the most popular cities in Europe so if your dates can be flexible this is the most cost effective way of moving smaller moves.
This depends on the method of transport. Dedicated vehicle services will pack up at your origin property and then travel directly to your destination home as soon as they receive the green light from customs to travel. Depending on where you are headed this can be as little as a couple of days.
For shared services this can take a little longer as we need to collect and load all the shipments at our warehouse, but we will let you know what to expect up front.
Anyone can make a fancy website and pay to get it ranking highly in your search engine, but how do you know you’ve found a reputable company? Quality accreditations and membership of professional associations are a great way to assess the standard of service you can expect from professional moving companies. Typically an expert external assessor will pre-vet the company for you with strict, regular external audits. Bournes are proud to be members of the top professional industry bodies to demonstrate our commitment to quality.
