HOW EUROPEAN REMOVAL COSTS ARE CALCULATED

The cost of a move from the UK to anywhere in Europe is dependent upon the amount of household goods, furniture and personal effects you want to move abroad. We assess the items and work out their volume in either cubic feet or cubic meters. The cost of the removal is then based on the amount of space your goods will take up in the removal vehicle.

VOLUME CALCULATION:
For example an average 3-seater sofa is estimated at 60cubic feet or 1.7 cubic meters, an armchair at 25cubic feet or .7cubic meters, a double divan bed at 60cubic feet or 1.7cubic meters, a washing machine is 12 cubic feet or .34 cubic meters. We add up the volume of all the items to be moved to arrive at a total volume of the goods.

Other factors that affect the cost of Moving from the UK to Europe or vice versa is the distance the removal vehicle has to travel; fuel, ferry and toll costs will be considered. Costs will also depend upon the service required. You may want a full packing service, storage and Insurance. You may require a special crating service for delicate or valuable items, parking suspensions, ladder lifts or tran-shipment vehicles, all applicable costs will be factored into your quote for moving to Europe.

VOLUME EXAMPLES:
An average 3 bed room house contents are normally around 1000cuft/28cubic meters. This is the space of an average single garage stacked top to bottom, front to back or the volume a 7.5t vehicle will hold.
A standard Luton van will hold about 550 cubic feet/15.5cubic meters.
A medium wheelbase (MWB) transit or sprinter van will hold about 350cuft/10 cubic meters.

Excellent service so far hope their high standard continues with shipping
I’d just like to say how happy I was with the service that you provided. Dealing with Paul and Ian from start to finish it has been a smooth process. Also please pass on my thanks to the driver Mirek, who was very helpful, polite and efficient. I would certainly use your services again and have passed on your details to a friend who needs removals to France in the near future.
I moved from London to Malta. I am very happy that i chose this company. Everything from the beginning to the end was great. My things were collected on time, i had good communication with coordinators Paul Stimson and Nikki Searle. They did a great job and always updated me about the process. I want to say big thank you. I would recommend anyone to use them for international removals.
