Whether you’re starting a new life for you and your family, transporting goods for business or taking a trip abroad, it’s important to know the cost of a removal to France.
It’s difficult to give an exact cost because there are many factors, including the volume of goods, distance from A to B and property access. For these reasons the average removal costs to France range from £3000 to £6000.
We’ve put a handy guide together to give you a better idea of what you can expect to pay for a removal from the UK to France.

The removal costs from UK to France will depend on the following factors:
A key factor in the cost of your removal to France is the type of removal.
A full removal is the removal of most or all goods from a property which are then transported to the destination. They are common for those who are moving to France, or are relocating their business and want to transport a large number of goods from the premises.
The cost is determined by the volume of your items, the distance to your destination and access to your property.
The cost of a full removal to France from the UK can range from £3000 to £6000. The average cost of a removal for a 4-bed household is £4500.
It is cheaper than a full removal as you will only be needing to transport some items. Like a full removal, a part removal is calculated by assessing the total volume of your items, the distance from A to B and how easy it is to access your property.
Unlike a full removal, the cost of a part removal is also calculated according to your removal date. This is because, as your items are transported with other part removals, it may be cheaper for us to collect your items when we are in your area. Likewise, if you need to move on a certain date, it may increase the cost due to our team being in a different area of the country.
The cost of a part removal to France from the UK can range from £65 to £85 per m3. The minimum price we undertake part removals for is £250.
Another important factor in working out average removal costs to France is the total volume of your goods. This is because the volume impacts how much we need to transport, along with how many vehicles will be required to transport your goods safely and securely to your destination in France.
As you might expect, the distance between your pickup location and your destination is key to working out the cost of your removal. Further distances are likely to cost more than shorter distances. For example, a removal from Newcastle to Nice is likely to cost more than a removal from Canterbury to Calais.
We cover the whole of the UK and France, and have been helping people move for over 30 years, so no matter where you are or where you need to be we can handle your removal.
Whether your property has easy access can also affect the cost of your removal. This is because a property with difficult access can make it harder for our team to move your goods from the property to our vehicles.
Having lots of stairs and limited vehicle access can increase the time it takes to load your goods onto the vehicle, as well as the number of movers that are needed, which will also determine whether we need a shuttle van to transport your goods.
As a result, poor access can increase the removal cost, whilst suitable access can keep the costs down and speed up the removal.

Dear Mark and Stephanie,
I would like to let you know what an excellent job Rob and Jake did this afternoon. It was not an easy place to which to get their lorry and they had to carry things down to the front gate. But nothing phased them and they remained cheerful and professional. I will unhesitatingly recommend your firm to anyone needing transport to or from the UK.
With many thanks for your help.
Rosemary Barrow, Essex
We just wanted to say thank you for such a brilliant and seamless service. You will remember that your quotation came in at about 50% cheaper than the two bigger companies and obviously we were worried that would reflect in the service.
From your response time, to the lovely people we chatted to in Maidstone with our mutiple questions, letting us add to our load at no extra charge, to yesterday's experience when Nino and his mate arrived, everything has been quite brilliant.
They called us an hour before arrival and were both so cheery and obliging despite their obvious long drive and need to get to the next pick up. We had two different locations for our furniture plus we changed our minds a couple of times and literally nothing was too much trouble - Nino's manipulation of that giant blue monster around the tiny farm lanes was quite breathtaking!
Great job! Please thank your team.
Heather and David, Trèbes
I am writing to say thank you so much for the smooth moving process. From beginning to end you could not have done better. I'd like to put in a complimentary word for the three guys who you sent to load and unload. Service without servility is always the perfect combination. They were all extremely convivial whilst getting on at the same time, meticulously careful with the items being transported and cheery without being "goonish".
Your original quote was handled most efficiently by Jasmine from initlal enquiry through to date setting, payment etc and the quote itself was highly competitive. Your own communication skills were faultless and I felt like I knew exactly what was going on at any one time.
I, quite frankly, cannot fault the service provided, you could not have done better and I am very happy with the price too.
Well done to all the team!
Best wishes for all your future projects.
