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.
I would just like to give some feedback on the move carried out by your guys yesterday. The Team (John, Ian and Rob) were utterly professional and charming with an outstanding focus on customer care. The team were patient, efficient and made a stressful occasion so much easier from our point of view. These must be amongst your most valued personnel.
I thanked them personally but would like to register our satisfaction officially. In my role as a Management Consultant, travelling for many years and working for leading names in business across the globe, I have rarely experienced this quality of customer service in over 25 years of running a business.
Could I also record my personal gratitude to you in your management of our case and in your admirable administrative skills, patience and efficiency.
We will certainly use you again when we have internal changes as we replace furniture etc.
Thank you once again for all your help. We will be in touch when we need to access the furniture and other valuables you are storing for us.Colin DarbyStafford

Nothing was too much trouble. Made it stress free. Used the company for the very competitive quote. Everything from initial contact to moving day was dealt with efficiently. Crew arrived on time and worked constantly throughout the day. I don’t think they even stopped for a lunch break. Great team of very experienced removal men. Dealt with the initial inquiry efficiently.Helen HouseStafford
All 5 removal men were very professional and hard working, we really appreciated the extra mile that they constantly went to. Made our daughter feel very safe and she made a friend for life (Lee). Used the company because you were the cheapest quote.Dan OxleyStafford
