An international move requires plenty of preparation in advance even if it’s just a short hop across the Channel. At Britannia Goodwins International Removals & Storage, some of our staff have made this life changing decision so we know how it feels. We have also learned from customers what types of assistance proves really helpful. That’s why we want to share our experiences with you in order to ensure your international move is as easy and hassle free as possible.
We can help you avoid the pitfalls and pass on helpful tips to ensure your move runs smoothly.
Planning an international move takes care and attention. Emigrating successfully requires careful research into the country you’ll be living in and the town which you’ll call home.
Take some time to investigate the culture, customs and day-to-day life of your new surroundings and you will find settling down somewhere new can be an exciting and far happier experience.
Each nation has their own rules regarding who and when someone may enter the country. In Dubai partners may only live together if they are married and Switzerland forbids moving on evenings, Sundays or a public holiday. In Germany, if you are renting a flat, you'll be expected to provide your own kitchen. If you are resident in Spain for a period exceeding three months you must register with the local authorities there.
Our knowledge of local regulations enables us to schedule your move in compliance with these rules and regulations and take away all the stresses associated with them.
We have moved families to Australia, New Zealand, the USA, the United Arab Emirates and just about everywhere else in the world and throughout Europe, so you can be sure you’re in safe hands.
It is vital to ensure your visa is arranged before booking any travel. EU citizens have free movement throughout the European Union but many nations such as Australia have strict rules regarding registering with the authorities and obtaining the correct permit is vital before your possessions can be sent to your new address.
The correct documentation is also essential for any family pets that are moving to a new country with you. Ensure that any necessary vaccinations are completed in good time and that their pet passport is up to date if you are moving within lhe EU or the EEA. Countries outside these areas may have different or additional requirements due to local circumstances and customs.
A video guide full of useful facts and hints produced by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office provides fantastic information for any would-be international mover. You can view this below or on YouTube and it will give you a real insight into what it is actually like to move abroad including buying property. The British government website TravelAware has a wealth of information for different countries including local laws, customs, and health. Browsing this website will enable you to understand some of the situations you may encounter in your new home country.

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.

They were very good and courteous. Both the lads were very good , friendly and couldn’t do enough for us - well done to them both
They had the day available for when we wanted to move, and we used them again to move our items out of store to our new property and will use them again later on in the month to move out of our rental property.
