Domestic and Business Moves to Europe
Safepac offers weekly removals, shipping and haulage services throughout Europe, both for those setting up home abroad and for people moving back to the UK, for instance at the end of a contract or an educational course. There are many reasons for embarking on European removals, including for work reasons or to set up a new business. Freedom of movement within the EU has led to greater interest in foreign job opportunities, while relaxed borders mean that moves to countries outside the EU are also increasingly popular.
Many people move to Europe after retirement, especially to countries which have more sunshine and offer a more relaxed lifestyle, such as Spain and France. Some retired people maintain homes both in continental Europe and in the UK, spending part of the year in each place and moving to and fro between them.
Additionally, in recent years there has been a growth in the numbers of UK students attending foreign universities, with an explosion in the number of courses being taught in English. Many people travel abroad for postgraduate study and, again, Safepac can organise both their removals to Europe and their return to their home country.Range of Destinations
Countries which are popular with British expats include Spain, France, Portugal, Germany and Italy, as well as nearby Ireland. Corporate moves to Scandinavia are also increasingly common, meaning that British workers often need to arrange European removals to Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland.
Safepac believes that the Baltic countries, including Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, could be the next popular destinations, as these former Eastern bloc countries are increasingly embracing their role as part of the EU community and building strong links with their neighbours. However, even if you are moving to a destination where there are few people from the UK, Safepac can still arrange it all for you. We organise moves everywhere in Europe, unless in rare cases there is Foreign Office advice not to go to a particular destination.Reliable Service
When you set out to organise a move to Europe, you can get an idea of what it will cost via a free online quote, and we will then arrange a pre-move survey. This involves looking at your possessions and discussing the arrangements with you, including the type of transport and packing and the place where your goods need to be taken. We will then give you a quotation and agree the details. Our aim is to tailor our service to your specific needs.
We transport goods across Europe by road, with our staff travelling with the vehicle to provide continuity of service. We can also provide storage before the move if needed, either at our warehouses or through self-storage facilities via our sister company, HomeStore. It is also possible for smaller items to be transported by FedEx.
The amount of time taken to arrange overseas house moves varies, but we are always flexible and will work to fit in with you. We also deal with all customs issues on your behalf, so there is no need for you to be present in the country to deal with officials when your goods arrive.About Safepac
