Moving within Europe or between Europe and the UK?

Moving within, to or from Europe is not very different from moving within the UK, except for the fact that you may have to cross the Channel, our vehicles have been crossing the channel for over 30 years and comply with different countries’ legislation and languages. We have managed thousands of European removals, so you can trust our experience when moving within continental Europe or between the UK and Europe.

For your reassurance, we’re members of the British Association of Removers Overseas Group, and meet their exacting standards. Many of our team are multi-lingual to avoid communication issues and make your European move easy.

Here are some of the popular questions and answers about European removals:

What parts of Europe do you deal with?

We operate weekly services to and from mainland Europe covering all major cities. Some of the countries we deal with every week include Germany, Austria, Spain, France, Belgium, Luxembourg and Portugal. Wherever you’re moving to or from, just ask.

How long does a European removal take?

A move between the UK and Europe typically takes between a week and a week-and-a-half, but it depends on whether your move requires a full load (dedicated vehicle) or a part load service (shared vehicle).

Can you guarantee the delivery date?

If you have a lot of possessions, we’ll move them in your own dedicated vehicle and give you a definite delivery date. If your belongings are being transported in a shared vehicle (also known as ‘Part Load’) the collection date is guaranteed but we can only give you a guideline about the arrival date, because it depends on all the other pickups and drop-offs.

How much will it cost?

Our full service includes packing and unpacking as well as the removal. Let us know what you need and our estimator will survey your home to give you an all-inclusive quote with no hidden extras.

Are you insured for European removals?

Yes we are. Your possessions are comprehensively covered throughout the UK and Europe for up to £50,000. If your home has a higher value, we can arrangeadditional cover through our Broker.

What our
customers say...

We called Humphreys at short notice having been let down by another company.
I cannot thank the removal guys enough. What was a very stressful situation for us was quickly alleviated by the friendly professional crew and the very efficient staff in the office, namely Darrel. Kevin and Brad worked their socks off for us between the UK and France. I would not hesitate but to recommend this company. Thank you very, very much.

I wanted to let you know that I have just received delivery of my container from the UK. I can’t speak highly enough of the service that you have provided from the first contact I made with you to the organised,friendly Gozitan team that delivered my belongings today. If you ever need any recommendations etc please don’t hesitate to contact me as I will be only too pleased to oblige.

Thank you again for your professionalism and attention

I would like to say a big thank you for organizing the removal of
Robert’s effects to Munich last week. The removers this end were
exceptionally pleasant and efficient and the move in Munich went very
well indeed. We really appreciated the work that went into this
operation. A good job done.
