Lock, stock and bookcase
Many clients do not need the use of a full-sized furniture van, so many removal companies can offer prices for ‘part loads’. This means that you can send a small consignment of belongings over to France which goes on a shared vehicle with other customers.
The cost will involve the space pre-booked in the van rather than you having to pay for the cost of a sole-use vehicle. Delivery dates will need to be flexible as the removal van will have several deliveries to make. Normally, part-loads can be collected and delivered within two or three weeks, depending on traffic.
French specialist movers will offer services on a regular part-load basis to most parts of France. Some can also arrange collection and delivery of motor vehicles and motorbikes which can be transferred in road trains (a vehicle with a boxed trailer).
