Regular Removals Services to Most of Europe
Moving to Europe, whether for work, retirement or following a dream can be extremely stressful. The removal should not be one of those stresses.
Each European country is unique in their ways and of course, in their laws. At TFM however, we have been sending trucks to Europe for over 25 years, so it’s safe to say we know the pitfalls of each country, and how to avoid them.
"We’ve moved 6 times in the last 7 years both within England and internationally and the service was excellent. We had an excellent team of movers and they had a wonderful, respectful and friendly relationship with each other - this makes a big difference in my experience. It was one of the most relaxing moves I’ve ever done. I would rather use TFM again than any of the large international moving companies we have previously used."

Removals to Europe
TFM have made a special effort to ensure we can help people in Essex, London and Kent to move to new homes throughout Europe. If you have made the decision to move, we can work with you to find the perfect removals solutions to suit your needs. We can move loads of any size to most destinations throughout Europe, our wealth of knowledge and specialist vehicles even allows us to move challenging items like vehicles, pianos and machinery in the same vehicle. We offer two European services; a direct removal service or a part-load removal service.
Direct Removal Service
A direct removal means our crew will arrive at your home in the UK, load our vehicle and then travel to your new home in Europe. The same crew will unload your possessions then return to our depot in the UK. You tell us the date you want your removal loaded and we will give you the date and time for delivery. Alternatively, you can tell us the date you want your furniture delivered and we will work out a timetable for loading and travel.
Part-load Removal Service
Perfect for those smaller loads, we offer – using the network we have built up since 1992 – a regular service to most major European destinations. Your removal will travel with other consignments and be delivered as the lorry passes your new home. TFM will supply you with a complete numbered inventory for you to check when the goods are unloaded. When we give you a part load estimate we will tell you when we expect the lorry to leave the UK, and a predicted window for delivery.Frequently Asked Questions
Storage for Removals to Europe
When moving to Europe it is very common for the the house sale and purchase not to be simultaneous, or your European home may be a second home, not quite ready for your belongings to be delivered.
TFM are one of the most respected storage providers in Essex, East London and North Kent and our premium storage services are perfect for these cases. Our storage containers are loaded and sealed with a unique customs seal at your property in the UK and these same containers are then delivered to your new property on the continent when you are ready for them. The seals are then broken under your supervision and our team unload to your new property.

Meet Some of the Team
DirectorHaving built up the business from scratch, Ralph has always been 100% committed to ensuring TFM is amongst the best removal companies in the South East of England. In equal measure his pig-headed stubbornness, attention to detail, vision and absolute commitment to excellent customer service has driven TFM toward his goal. Ralph still strives to deal with every customer himself, at some point in their removal process, and on the rarest of occasions he can even be spotted out on the lorries (even if it is just folding blankets and drinking coffee!). Lucky enough to have his sons working alongside him, he enjoys sharing his experience and knowledge, knowing that the next generation are there to help him continue to drive TFM forward.
Removals PorterTony began work for TFM in 2015 after moving to Essex from East London, he quickly learnt the ropes and is now highly skilled in handling furniture. His next step is to become fully trained in packing and export wrapping and eventually taking a course at the BAR (British Association of Removers). Tony’s cheeky east end persona and willingness to help anybody always make him a hit on removals and he regularly leaves customers not only smiling but in fits of laughter.
Removals PorterJamie has been with TFM since the mid-nineties so we think he can now be justified in describing himself as an established member of the team! Already having removals experience before joining TFM, Jamie brought his own knowledge and has since taken courses to fine tune his ability to export wrap furniture, pack china and glass and dismantle and re-assemble furniture. Like many removal men, Jamie is a unique character and has a collection and knowledge of reptiles which is second to none.
