This phase of the “moving to a new home” process can be time consuming because it involves dedicated research as well, with the same demands as when you are looking for a real estate company to consult regarding a property. Also, you need to canvass from different France removals companies through numerous phone calls so that you can compare quotes and rates.

The most logical thing to do is to start with those you know, meaning your family and friends, to see if they know of any firm who can address your needs. Meanwhile, continue to do you research and prioritize those who are members of BAR or the British Association of Removers because as per code of conduct, they have gained approval. Also, you can submit your request slips to agencies that provide help through quoting thousands of companies at your disposal.
However, you should also keep in mind that before attempting to contact potential companies for moving to France, you need to know what service you want to avail of, eg: you may need a part load removals to France service or Removals London Paris. This way, you can inform them firsthand and they’ll be able to elaborate on what will work best for you. For instance, if you have a good enough budget and would want the utmost convenience, go for the full France removals service. All tasks will be carried out, from packing of the goods, the organizing into designated boxes and containers, loading/unloading and the unpacking to where you’ll be living. Again, since you don’t have to shoulder the said tasks, the removals service will come off as expensive.
Meanwhile, the most common and popular choice which is in between the cheapest and priciest options is the semi service. With this, you will have to spend a reasonable price but with lesser perks. It will be like a 50-50 designation of the tasks because the client will have to do the packing and unpacking while the company will take care of the loading and unloading. If you would rather keep tabs on your goods and do the packing yourself to ensure proper organization, then this option will work for you.
As for the most affordable one which is self service, almost everything is still under your care. What the company will only provide is a driver for the lorry (whether their own or one that you rented) that will transport the goods to the new home in France. Before settling for this option, you have to make sure that you have sufficient manpower to do all the mentioned strenuous tasks.
As to the factors that will help you decide on which service to use for France removals, it highly depends on the location of your new home (especially when it is abroad) and the kinds and number of goods that you are bringing with you. Moving abroad could be very costly so be sure to budget your money because you still have tickets (for the persons) to secure. Also, say if you have lots of fragile and fine art/antique goods, it is best to entrust the task to experts because they have techniques and special packaging materials to secure utmost safety for the said goods while being shipped to France.
