International Movers to France

Moving overseas can be a big decision and is often seen as a daunting task. At Hercules Moving Company, we understand this and are here to help those who are planning to move to France.

France is located in Western Europe and borders Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Monaco and Spain. Its capital city is Paris which is also one of the most popular cities for expats due to its iconic landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower and Louvre Museum. Other major cities include Marseille on the south coast of France which boast some beautiful beaches along with Lyon in central France known for its rich culture and amazing food scene.

The country has much more to offer than just these cities with other popular destinations such as Bordeaux known for its world-famous wines or Avignon for its impressive architecture from centuries ago. No matter where you decide to live in France it will be sure to provide an exciting lifestyle full of beauty, culture and cuisine that make it one of the most desirable places in Europe!

If you are looking for international movers who can help make your relocation to France a smooth process then look no further than Hercules Moving Company – we provide quality services tailored towards each customer so you can rest assured that your move will be expertly handled by our experienced team!

The International Move Process to France

We specialize in moves to France and have a wealth of experience when it comes to relocating there. Our team is well-versed in the process of international moving, so you can trust that your journey will be smooth and hassle-free.

With our knowledge of French culture, customs and regulations, we make sure that your move to France is as successful as possible.

Initial Consultation

When relocating to France, it is important to have a plan in place and execute it properly. Hercules Moving Company offers a free consultation with our experienced international movers to go over the details of your move and make sure everything goes according to plan.

During this initial consultation, we will discuss your moving needs and requirements; such as timeline, budget, quantity of items being shipped, etc. This information is essential in ensuring that your move runs smoothly and successfully.

Virtual Survey

After an initial consultation, at Hercules Moving Company, we provide our customers with an efficient and modern way to get a precise international moving estimate with our AI Estimating tool, Yembo.ai.

This state of the art tool reduces the time needed for the estimate by automatically detecting inventory and measuring the volume of items via a simple video call. Additionally, all inventory is prepared to meet the ISO 17451 standards.

Yembo.ai is a fast and easy way to get an accurate estimate without having to move furniture around or take pictures of items in order to document them. We stay up-to-date on the latest technologies in order to provide our customers with the best service possible.

As a result, our customers can be sure that their belongings will be packed safely and securely for their international move, guaranteeing peace of mind throughout their transition overseas.

Receive All In and Transparent Quote

After our virtual survey and with the help of Yembo.ai, we can provide you with an online all-in moving estimate. Our quote is completely transparent, so all costs and charges are clearly stated.

Our international moving coordinators will consider many factors when determining the best estimate for your move, including the size of your shipment, distance to your new home in France, and any unique services you may need.

Each client has a personalized approach, as we want to ensure complete customer satisfaction while still meeting their needs and budget. We will also price match any reputable moving company or Canadian Association of Movers (CAM) member.

Expert Packing for Moving to France

Today is the packing day for your international move to France. Most countries, including France, do not accept containers that are packed by the owner (PBO). If you attempt to ship items that have not been professionally packed, you may encounter long delays and extra charges at customs.

At Hercules Moving Company, we have years of experience in international moving and our team of expert packers will ensure your items arrive safely. We use the best packing materials and techniques for overseas shipping.

Instead of moving blankets, we use branded Alligator Wrap and extra sturdy international moving boxes. International packing must be performed much better than local packing. We will also prepare an inventory to meet all import/export requirements.

Your items will be packed in a way that ensures they are safe during transport across the ocean.

Customs Clearance When Moving to France

After the packing and preparation is done, the shipment is loaded and shipped to France using the preferred method by our customers. In France, the shipment will arrive in a port and then go through customs clearance for it to be able to enter the country.

Customs clearance includes all necessary procedures and documents needed for items to be accepted into France.

At Hercules Moving Company, we have experts who are knowledgeable in handling customs clearance properly. We understand how important it is that experienced professionals can navigate complex regulations and requirements in order to ensure a smooth transition into France.

Our team of professionals will provide personalized support throughout the entire process, offering assistance with paperwork and addressing any concerns or questions throughout. We strive to ensure that your items are delivered on time and without any issues by providing top-notch customs clearance services.

Thanks to our expertise in customs clearance procedures, individuals relocating to France can relax knowing that they have professional help navigating this complex procedure.

With Hercules Moving Company’s services, we guarantee a seamless transition for our customers with minimal delays when moving internationally.

Delivery to France

Once the items have cleared customs, they will be delivered to the client's new home overseas. The delivery process is handled by a trusted agent in the destination country, also known as a destination service.

This is an optional service that clients can choose if they have selected door-to-door service. Of course, one can opt to handle delivery themselves if they prefer.

Our delivery services include debris removal on the same moving day, which is a free service to help keep your new home clean and tidy after the move. In addition, Hercules Moving Company's experienced crews can help stage furniture however you like in your new place of residence.

Our delivery services ensure that individuals relocating to France can focus on settling into their new home without worrying about the logistics of moving. We take care of all the details so you don't have to!

What Clients say About Us

Hercules rescued my move when another Toronto movers cancelled on me days before the big day. They were professional and knew exactly how to protect all of my belongings during the move in terrible rain.

I was very satisfied with Hercules Moving Company. They made it easy and stress free for us. They arrived on time and packed and professionally covered our furniture to go into storage, since we are in between houses. I was amazed by how they were able to efficiently pack and store a 5 bedroom, 2 living room, office and a gym into a storage unit where they organized everything to fit perfectly. This wasn't an easy job and I was 100% satisfied with their service and would recommend them to anyone looking for good quality movers. Thanks Hercules Moving company for helping us move!

Excellent household moving service from HMC van lines. Hercules Movers were nice, clean and fresh! They had applied their traditional wrapping technique, and I was surprised with the level of their professionalism. Finally, after moving into a new house, Hercules Movers placed and unpacked all the furniture and belongings, and left the floor clean. Thank you, HMC family!

The movers showed up on time and ready to work, they were very efficient and professional. Would highly recommend to anyone.

They did an excellent job moving the piano as they took extreme care not to damage the piano or anything else in the house. I will most likely use them during my next big move as up to now I've been doing most of the moving myself. Thank you.

Kavaleo Bram

We had never used movers before and did a lot of research before deciding on Hercules Moving Company. The Calgary movers showed up early and were ready to go on time. They worked quickly and diligently and moved our entire house in 6 hours. I was very grateful for not having to do the heavy lifting ourselves and that everything was moved without damage and in good time. I would definitely use them again!

Hercules Piano Moving has picked up my piano which I had donated. They were very professional, covering and sealing the piano. Making note not to damage my flooring and returning all furnishings back into their original places. I would recommend this company, reliable, quick and efficient.

Good job. Guys were very pleasant and fast. Everything was clear, no hidden fees. They met all my request.


Hercules Movers were great to deal with and very professional. Ottawa movers were on time with very friendly movers who even called to update us on their departure and arrival. We had a great experience and recommend them.

I was very worried when I knew I had to move my piano and I did some research online to see how can I get it done and I found Hercules Moving Company and I decided to give them a try. I was astonished how quickly and easy they did that without leaving a single mark on it. I was pleased and surely will call again!!!

Vivid Reflection

With short notice, Hercules Moving Company was able to book my piano moving during a time that worked well for me. Other companies I had looked into were not as flexible and were more expensive. They were very professional. I would definitely use Hercules Oshawa Moving Company again, and would absolutely recommend them.

Private User

These Burlington movers did a great job moving my wife and I out of our downtown condo. Took care of everything they moved, and did things quickly and efficiently. The quote itself was reasonable and compared well to others. Will use them again for future moves.

I am a small business owner and when there is a problem to carry heavy items and move large stuff, I think Hercules! Owners have outstanding organizational skills and manage time and resources very well. I am sharing this wonderful experience as a matter of gratitude and respect.Thank you!

This company to put it simply was AMAZING! The initial call to Hercules went extremely well from that moment I knew this was the company I would use. Walter who made the booking was efficient and quick in meeting all my needs. The day of the move the team worked very well wrapping all of my furniture securely preventing any damage. The workers and entire staff were friendly very fast and clearly enjoy there job. I will definitely recommend Hercules moving company to all my friends and family for there moving needs. Special thank you to Vidas and his team of workers! Great job guys!

Have used Hercules Moving for 2 work related circumstances. Extremely professional, cautious and timely. I would have no hesitation to recommend this company to others. They are my go to company from now on.
