Move to London: we are the experts – today and also in the future!
On a move to London, we don't just need to consider the distance and the best way to cross the Channel. Since the UK left the EU in 2020, all moving goods must be cleared through customs, even including your pet or private car in which you maybe travel separately from your belongings. We make the necessary preparations so that all of your belongings - household effects, children's toys, heirlooms and personal items - can be imported without worries.
There is another important point to consider on moves to London: the city is very large and has high levels of traffic. In a city of 14 million inhabitants with many narrow streets and heavy traffic, specific regulations apply. Moving trucks need a special permit to be able to drive into the centre of the city. They also need parking permits, and illegal parking of trucks brings high penalties. In addition, the British authorities are planning to introduce a safety permit, which each vehicle should have.
With Brexit coming into effect in 2020, border controls, import regulations and new customs rules have made moving to London more difficult. With us as your moving partner, you don't need to worry about all this - We inform, advise and support you and stay up to date.

We cover everything necessary for your move: we make a detailed packing list for customs clearance; we prepare all the necessary paperwork; we pack and load all items onto our truck, and transport everything, using either the ferry or the Channel Tunnel; we apply for the necessary permits; we place all items into the necessary rooms at destination.
We make sure that you arrive in London with everything that makes your home special, and that you have a successful start to this new phase in your life. We can also support you, thanks to our relocation services, with things like home search, an application for comprehensive health care and dealings with the authorities. We can also help with orientation. For example, Kensington, Primrose Hill and Hampstead are family-friendly and have good transport connections. Richmond is not so central, but is popular with German families due to the German schools located there.
