Since the UK left the EU after Brexit there have been changes to the Customs Clearance process for moves into France. 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 France.
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 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 before starting the trip to France, 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.

Since the UK left the EU we no longer have 'free movement of goods' between the UK and France. This means the import of your household goods (furniture and personal effects) are subject to import and export rules and procedures.
Your Bournes Move Consultant and Move Manager will guide you through this process, but here's a little of what to expect to help you start planning.

We will advise you on this during your move consultation or you can check out the FIDI Customs Guide for France.
There are some items you cannot move with you to France, and others that require additional paperwork or processes. These include:

Prior to your move you will need to complete some documentation to enable us to make arrangements. This will depend on your status i.e. if you are a UK or French National, but your move manager will guide you through and provide copies of the forms you need, these include (but aren't limited to):
