Many expats dream of living in France, learning the language of love and embracing a new experience. That said, it's an intimidating process and, though the move may be easier for citizens of the European Union, there are often relocation, immigration and cultural barriers to overcome. This is where relocation businesses come in.
Relocation companies take an individualised approach based on the moving needs of their clients. This full suite of services includes school selections, French culture and language training, home-finding services, lease negotiation and utility hook-ups. After arriving in France, relocation firms also offer neighbourhood orientation and various settling-in services.
Removals companies, on the other hand, offer a more limited range of services that tend to focus on transporting and shipping goods.
Here is a list of some relocation companies that can assist any move to or from France.
