What services are available?

Pickfords offers a range of removals services if you are moving to France, including:

Direct load

Your effects are packed at your home and loaded onto a European road vehicle and transported directly to your new home. You can select a delivery date to suit your requirements.

Part load

Your effects are packed at your home on an agreed date and transferred to our warehouse for onward transport to your new home. We will agree a delivery window with you and will advise you of the scheduled delivery date when it is known. This service is a more cost effective service than direct load and is recommended if you can be flexible with your delivery dates.

What should I be aware of when moving to France?

Narrow streets, parking restrictions, apartment blocks can all pose their own particular problems when moving to France. Sometimes special equipment or expertise can be required. Pickfords, through its European network, has access to any specialist equipment (hoists, shuttle vehicles) to ensure the safe delivery of your effects to your new home.
