Your journey with us:
As soon as you open the door to our driver, you’ll be greeted with a smile. He’ll be experienced and trained in heavy lifting, helping you carry all your possessions safely to the van and securing them neatly inside. As soon as that’s done, UK here we come!
We know we’re carrying your most valued possessions, so for your peace of mind we’ll keep you updated throughout the whole journey, and when we’re two hours away from the destination we’ll give you a courtesy call to confirm our arrival time.
Two hours later you’ll open your front door and be greeted by the same friendly driver, who’ll happily help you bring all your items into your new home. It really couldn’t be easier.
How to prepare:
The British Army has an old saying: proper planning prevents poor performance. This applies to international moving too. To keep your possessions as secure and as safe as possible during transit, we recommend you pack loose items in suitcases or boxes. Place padding on furniture, or cover it up.
If you need packing materials, feel free to check out our online store where you can order heavy-duty shrink wrap and protective blankets.
Documents you’ll need:
When it comes to paperwork, most people would rather avoid it. Therefore, the good news is if you’re moving back to the UK from anywhere in the EU, there are just two forms to complete. The first is an insurance form (we provide free goods in transit insurance), and the second is a cargo movement/CMR form, which your driver will give you on the day of your move.
If you’re moving to the UK from a non-EU country such as Norway or Switzerland, you’ll need to contact the nearest EU country’s consulate in order to notify them of your move. In the case of Norway, it will be the Swedish or Danish consulate, for Switzerland, it will be the French or German. The consulate will advise you of what paperwork is required for the journey. It is your duty, once you have prepared all the paperwork, to hand copies to our driver as he will need them for the EU customs inspection.
How long does the journey back to the UK take?
Not long at all. Once our drivers have packed up the van with your belongings, they head straight for your new home. Trip times vary between 12 hours to 72 hours depending on where in Europe you’re moving from. Rest assured though, nobody does it quicker than us, so you’ll be sitting on your favourite sofa with a cup of tea in hand in no time. (For a better idea of times, go to the menu bar and click on the country you’re moving from).
- Please note that moves back to Scotland or Wales can take longer.
- Orders smaller than the full loading capacity of the removal vehicle (<15 cubic meters) can take up to 5 days to deliver. For details please click here.
