What to expect before & after your International move

  • Removals to Spain

    If you're choosing the Spanish style of living over the one in the UK, we offer the right solution for your international relocation. Depending on the area you are moving to, your belongings can be delivered in approximately 24 to 36 hours to most coastal towns in Spain.

    Bonus tip: Research visa requirements

    It's easy to move to a European country if you have citizenship in the UK. If you don't have one and have been born in a country out of the EU, see the visa requirements in the country you're heading to.

  • Removals to France

    As Paris could be as expensive as London, it isn’t usually a relocation choice but rather a work-related destination. With our international removals company, you will easily get your items to France within 12 to 24 hours. Better polish on your French skills as it will provide you with extended opportunities for communication and work.

    Bonus tip: Check the cost of living before moving to France

    Before making the final step of booking the international removals service, make sure you'll be able to deal with the cost of living abroad. The quality of life is related to the costs of living, which may turn out to be higher than you expected.

  • Removals to Germany

    Expect to follow the rules in Germany, whether you are extending your business to Berlin or want to start a family in Munich or Frankfurt. We will transport your property in 24 to 36 hours, depending on the city you are moving to.

    Bonus tip: Learn the pet transportation regulations

    You won't be leaving your pet behind unless the customs agent finds an issue with the animal. Learn about the regulations that are related to passports and vaccines before getting to the border. Read our blog post on Moving to Germany from the UK.

  • Removals to Italy

    It will take us about 46-48 hours to complete your relocation to Italy. Whether the rolling hills of Sardinia took your fancy, you picked Umbria or Sicily to be your home from now on, or moving to Rome has been a lifelong dream of yours, get ready for an adventure!

    Bonus tip: Notify the school

    If you have kids who are currently going to school, make sure to notify the school that you're moving abroad. As parents, you will probably be asked to fill out some papers.

  • Removals to Ireland

    As Ireland and the UK are separated by a distance of just 13 miles across the Irish Sea, it is a popular destination for British people seeking to make the move to Ireland. With Fantastic Removals, moving to Ireland from the UK is quick, simple and, above all, affordable.

    You do not need to obtain a visa or any other immigration permission in order to live and work in Ireland if you are a UK citizen. Ireland and the UK have an agreement known as the Common Travel Area (CTA), which means that citizens of both countries can live and work freely in each other's countries.

  • Removals to Scotland

    Scotland is a beautiful country with stunning scenery. The Scottish Highlands, the Argyll Coast, and the countryside are an unsurpassed combination. For people who want a calmer pace of life, Scotland would be an excellent choice.

    Bonus tip: Check the cost of living before moving to Scotland

    As a UK citizen, you can move to Scotland without completing any special paperwork, meeting any predetermined requirements, or filling out any particular forms. If you’re looking to relocate from England to Scotland, we can help you with the moving process.

  • Did you know?

    In order to make your international move a lot easier, we can assist you with many other things, such as the delivery of packing materials, packing your belongings, and even furniture disassembly.

    Bonus tip: When you combine your international removals with one or more of our services you also save money!

    On the other hand, the property you are vacating might benefit from some additional services that we can arrange for you - such as end-of-tenancy cleaning, for example. This service will be particularly helpful if you are looking to win your property deposit back from a landlord or a leasing agency. If the place requires some pampering and quick fixes, we can send a fully equipped handyman to handle your to-do list.

Frequently asked questions about international removals

Q: How quickly can you relocate me to another country?
A: Unfortunately, we cannot give you an exact time frame since this depends on a lot of factors. After the initial survey and once we have all the necessary information, a company representative will contact you with an estimate of how long your international journey is going to take.
Q: Can you assist me with moving overseas on short notice?
A: Usually, most customers get in touch with us 3 months before their expected move date in order for us to have enough time to book a consultation and sort out all of the paperwork. However, we can also assist you with moving overseas even if you only have a few days to spare.
Q: How much does moving abroad cost?
A: The final price is shaped by many factors, such as the volume of goods you want to move, the types of properties you’re moving to and from, the country and the area you’re moving to, as well as if you own any special items (pianos, safes, etc.) and on how you want them moved. Book your video survey today to get an accurate cost for the move.
Q: Who is this service suitable for?
A: Just about anyone in need of long-distance removals! From tenants and students to businesses who wish to open a new office abroad. We can take care of everything and will be happy to help you with additional services such as delivering the moving supplies, packing or even business storage.
Q: Are there any extra costs involved?
A: All extra costs (if any) will be listed in your final quote. Such costs, for example, could be road, bridge, or ferry fees, late hour charges, or fees for moving specific items, like pianos. Please note that fees for items that are not considered duty-free will not be reflected in the quote.
Q: Can I pack the items myself?
A: This depends on where you’d like to go. However, we always encourage our customers to leave the packing to us to avoid potential problems with the customs (for instance, if you are trying to import something that local laws forbid), as well as to avoid the risk of damage. You can rest assured that the friendly team will carefully pack your personal effects and belongings.
Q: What if I’m not ready to receive my items yet?
A: If that’s the case, we can place them inside a storage facility and deliver them to your desired destination as soon as you’re ready to accept your belongings.
Q: What happens if some of my belongings arrive damaged?
A: If you suspect that some of your items were mishandled during the delivery, please inspect the goods and submit a damage claim within the next 72 hours so that we can assist you.
Q: Does my service involve an upfront payment?
A: Before the move, we will ask for an upfront deposit equal to 50% of the price of the service.
Q: Are there any requirements I should be aware of?
A: You need to arrange a parking space (6-8 metres) for the team as otherwise we will be unable to assist you with your international move. Please contact your local council for more information.
Q: Are there things you’re currently unable to perform?
A: Unfortunately, we are currently unable to provide you with pallet or container packing services. Although planned in the future, as of yet we are also unable to ship items overseas.
Q: What is your service coverage?
A: We can help you move from any point in the UK to any location within the European Union and vice versa. Some of the more popular destinations include Scotland, Ireland, Germany, Spain, France, and Italy.
Q: What are the benefits of video surveying?
A: Video surveys have many benefits. One is that it's available 24/7 and it can fit around your schedule. It's a real time-saver, considering we are all working from 9 to 5. You won't have to book time off work. Instead, pick up your phone and let a mover guide you through.
