Air Freight Icon

Air Freight To France

Air Freight isn’t always the best option for removals from UK to France because it can be an expensive affair. 

The price is usually worked out on the weight of the items so transporting large items such as furniture can be very costly. 

Customs and Legalities...

French Health Insurance is compulsory when living in France and you are, therefore legally obliged to have it. You will be required to register with CPAM (Basic Health Insurance) before using French Healthcare.

European citizens that move to France can work without a permit but you must remember to register with French Authorities within 3 months of Moving to France.
