Removals to Europe
Free movement of people within the EU, EEA and Switzerland may mean less red tape when you're relocating to Europe as an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen, but there's more to moving within Europe than just packing your bags and arriving.
Given the changes that have occurred through Brexit and also the Covid-19 pandemic, Britannia Goodwins are still getting to understand the new rules and regulations surrounding European removals, but we have been safely moving household and personal effects for thousands of customers to every destination in Europe including Switzerland, France and Germany since 1935 - and we don't plan to stop now!
Removals within Europe
We also perform removals within Europe, so moves between Germany and The Netherlands or Switzerland and France, for example, are not a problem. Even if you're just moving from one end of Zurich to the other, we can help. This allows you to deal directly with a professional, English-speaking crew who have the knowledge and experience to perform your European removal at a competitive price.
Removals from Europe to the UK
We don't like to bring empty trucks back to the UK, and return loads to the UK can be a cost effective way of moving your good as you only pay one way mileage. Our European removals team is always on the move between the UK and Europe, making it easy for you to use a trusted mover to bring your household goods to the UK.
We can undertake a survey using any smartphone to try and make sure that there are no surprises come moving day.
Things to consider when moving to Europe
We offer information and advice for international moves, including country guides for some of our most popular European destinations.
Documentation and Brexit
Following Brexit, we are still building our working knowledge of the paperwork now needed to move within Europe. We are now able to travel although it is a 'moving feast'.
Please contact us where one of our friendly team will be able to share with you the latest advice.
Your social security rights and entitlements to benefits will vary very differently across the EU. You will need to contact an information centre regarding your entitlements before relocating.
These vary in each country and you are subjected to the laws of that country when it comes to family benefits. If you are working in a different country from the country you will reside in, you might be entitled to benefits there as well, but this will depend on where your child/children are living and whether the other parent of the child/children is working.

How are our appointments carried out
In the current times you might prefer that we don't visit your house in person to carry out a survey. This is fully understandable and we can just as easily undertake the survey by video call, using whatever method you're comfortable with, usually FaceTime or WhatsApp.

Had full confidence
Removals crew were very helpful, courteous people. Have used previously. I have used your company before and had full confidence in them.Michelle HydonStafford
On time as planned and unpacked us in record time
Paul and Alan packed up the house - very helpful and made it all very easy. Darren S, Darren G, Rob and Ian travelled to Sussex to unpack. They were here on time as planned and unpacked us in record time, despite not being able to park close to the house. Friendly and kind at all times. An excellent crew on both occasions. Thank you.
I have used the company before when moving my parents and was very impressed then.
Comments regarding your initial enquiry - I dealt with Matthew Myers who completed the survey via WhatsApp. Very efficient.Jane CapeyStafford
Appreciated everyone being so efficient at ensuring social distancing
We had John, Kim and Rob to pack our things and Lee and the team to do the removals. Everyone was so friendly and did such a great job, and we really appreciated everyone being so efficient at ensuring social distancing too as we have a very young baby who we are trying to shield. Everyone also treated our belongings with such respect which we really appreciated after a bad experience with a different removals company previously resulted in lots of our things being damaged.
Used the company because of good online reviews and great service from staff when we initially contacted with an enquiry.
Comments regarding your initial enquiry - Received a response to my initial enquiry really quickly and had all my questions answered.Ruth PicklesStafford
