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.

They had a positive and cheerful approach
They had a positive and cheerful approach, which makes a stressful experience as good as it can be.
Everything worked well for us, no change needed. We had seen the B/G vans locally.
We were very satisfied particularly at the booking stage, especially when others in the chain changed the date more than once. The waiver arrangement served us well.
My queries were answered very fully and I felt confident to proceed with a booking.Susan WatsonStafford
