Types of removal service to Italy

Simpsons International Removals is a leading removal company, offering you a comprehensive range of services if you are looking to move your belongings to Italy, each tailored to meet different needs and budgets.

Road Freight Service – Dedicated or Part Loads

Road freight service is an excellent choice for European removals, especially for those seeking a balance between cost and speed. This service ensures that your goods are transported efficiently over land, providing a swift and budget-friendly option. You can decide to use either a dedicated or part load service with road freight.

Sea Freight service – Container Shipping

For those who might be moving larger quantities of goods or seeking an even more cost-effective solution, sea freight services are also available. Whether that’s a full-load 20ft or 40ft container for larger moves or a part-load container for smaller quantities, sea freight is known for its economic value, especially for substantial moves, and while it may take longer than road transport, it offers a reliable and cost-effective solution for transporting your goods over longer distances.

Air Freight Service – For Small Moves

For the quickest transportation of your belongings to Italy, air freight is the recommended option. This express courier service is ideal for smaller moves, such as sending boxes or luggage. Air freight stands out for its speed, making it the perfect choice for those who need their items to arrive in Italy as quickly as possible. However, it is important to note that while air freight is the fastest method, it is generally more expensive than road or sea freight and is best suited for larger volumes of goods.

Removals to Italy FAQ Guide & Moving Checklist

Removals to Italy Cost

Determining the cost of your removal to Italy involves considering various factors, such as the specific locations involved. Where you are moving from in the UK and where you plan to move to Italy are significant in calculating the overall cost.

Another crucial factor in determining the cost is the volume of items you are planning to transport. The price per cubic foot tends to decrease as the volume increases, meaning larger moves often offer more cost-effective rates.

It’s worth noting that due to the substantial number of people moving from the UK to Italy each year, removal services may be surprisingly affordable. This is because removal companies like ours have developed efficient processes and established networks to handle such moves efficiently, resulting in competitive pricing.

We highly recommend booking a home or video survey with our experienced team for an accurate quotation tailored to your specific needs. During the survey, our experts will assess the volume of goods you plan to send to Italy and provide you with a detailed and personalised quote. This allows us to account for all the necessary factors and provide you with an accurate estimate, ensuring transparency and avoiding any unexpected costs along the way.

By taking advantage of our survey service, you can understand the costs involved in your removal to Italy and make an informed decision regarding your relocation plans. Our team will be more than happy to assist you throughout the process and address any questions or concerns, helping you confidently plan your move.

You can use our online cost calculator to get an initial price or for a more accurate estimate, we highly recommend booking a home or video survey to get a more formal quote for the cost of your move to Italy.

Remember our removal quotes are for a comprehensive door-to- door service including packing and standard customs clearance. Our quote does not include customs fees and duties which may be payable to local authorities on arrival.

When opting for road freight transportation to mainland destinations in Italy, it is essential to consider the estimated time it takes for your belongings to reach their destination. Typically, the duration of the transportation process can vary depending on the type of service you choose.

For a dedicated service, where your items are transported in a sole container, the estimated timeframe for delivery to your new home in Italy is around 2 to 4 weeks. This option offers a faster transit time as it is dedicated solely to your shipment, ensuring prompt delivery.

On the other hand, if you opt for a shared or part load service, where your belongings are combined with other shipments, the estimated delivery timeframe is generally longer. In this case, you can expect the transportation process to take approximately 4 to 8 weeks. While taking longer, shared services provide a more cost-effective option as the costs are shared among multiple customers.

Yes, a UK citizen can move to Italy after Brexit, but the process has changed. Before Brexit, UK citizens enjoyed freedom of movement within the EU, allowing them to live and work in Italy without special visas.

Since Brexit, UK citizens are treated as non-EU nationals. UK citizens can still buy property and stay 90 days in any 180 days, so can spend 6 months of the year in Italy, but they must apply for and obtain a visa for longer stays or residency.

The exact type of visa required depends on the purpose of the stay, such as work, retirement, or joining family members. Additionally, UK citizens must meet immigration requirements, which could include providing proof of income, healthcare coverage, and a clean criminal record. The process is more complex and requires more documentation than prior to Brexit, but it remains feasible for UK citizens to move to Italy.

Another change is that you need to undergo customs clearance for your household removal to Italy. However, the experienced team at Simpsons International Removals will be able to handle that for you.

We provide a range of storage services for your belongings if you moving to Italy. We have storage facilities across the UK and can also store your goods in Spain until you are ready to receive them.

We have highly secure warehouses and can offer a range of flexible storage solutions depending on your needs including short term and longer term storage.

When relocating your belongings to Italy, Simpsons’ comprehensive packing services have you covered. Our expert packing teams excel in export wrapping your furniture and efficiently packing boxes to ensure their safe arrival in flawless condition. Our highly trained packing crews specialise in packing for overseas moves and have years of experience.

We offer a range of export quality double-walled boxes of different sizes including tea cartons, book cartons and bike cartons. Other packing materials include blanket wrap, flow pack, bubble wrap and secure packing tape.

We can also provide bespoke custom wood cases and crates for delicate and special items that need additional protection. Our service also includes specialised antique packing, ensuring these valuable items are meticulously protected.

With our extensive experience in managing delicate and fragile items, we assure that every piece, from everyday furniture to precious antiques, receives the highest level of care and professional handling throughout the moving process.

Some of the other popular destinations for expats and property buyers looking to move to Italy include:

We have achieved a delicate balance where we are big enough to provide a comprehensive and efficient service yet maintain a friendly and personalized approach to our customers. Our size allows us to offer a range of benefits that set us apart from other removal companies.

One of our key advantages is our team’s expertise and experience. We have assembled a highly skilled and knowledgeable group of professionals specialising in international removals. Their years of experience handling logistics, customs regulations, and the specific requirements of moving to Italy ensure that our customers receive top-notch service. Our team’s expertise allows us to navigate any challenges, providing you with peace of mind and a smooth relocation experience.

Unlike companies that handle various types of moves, we have honed our expertise in helping individuals and families relocate internationally. This specialization allows us to provide a deeper level of knowledge and understanding of the intricacies of moving to Italy, ensuring we can handle every aspect of your relocation with precision and care.

We have a variety of house removal services depending on your relocation needs. So no matter whether you are just looking to move a couple of boxes to Italy or move your entire house contents, we have a cost-effective solution for you.

Dedicated removals service

If you are undertaking a large house removal to Italy then our dedicated removal service will suit you. You will be allocated your own dedicated removal van and packing team to take all your furniture and other goods from your home in the UK to your new home in Italy.

Small removals to Italy (part or shared load)

If you don’t have much stuff to take with you to Italy, then our shared load removal service is ideal.

We regularly transport people’s household belongings and furniture on a ‘European road train’. to all parts of Italy including Rome, Milan, Naples and Sicily.

This furniture removals service is our most popular as the cost is shared amongst other customers moving to the same area of Italy. In fact, it’s usually cheaper than ‘man and van’ type removals service and your belongings are certainly a lot safer!

Box service for cheap removals to Italy

All our shipping options are cost-effective but if you only have a few boxes to send to Italy then our box removal service will likely be your cheapest option.

Moving from Ireland to Italy

We are now also able to undertake removals from all parts of Ireland to Italy including both Belfast and Dublin. Please contact us for more details and a quote.

We not only do removals from London, Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool to Italy, but from all parts of England.

We have teams serving Cardiff and Wales to Italy as well as from all over Scotland (not just Edinburgh and Glasgow) to Italy too.

Insurance for your Move to Italy

We would recommend taking out Shipment Protection Cover for peace of mind whilst your belongings are on their journey.

Whilst we have expert packers who specialise in international removals and use accredited shipping lines who take special care of your personal belongings, we cannot control every eventuality.

Just as you will likely have home contents insurance in the UK and travel insurance for your family, we recommend you discuss with your Move Manager the available options for protecting your belongings whist they are in transit.

Although Simpsons will take care of all the details they can for you, this convenient checklist will make preparing for the move as simple and worry free as possible.

Moving out: Before the removal men arrive, be clear in what they are contracted to do and what you are expected to do. If in doubt, ask the surveyor or a member of our staff. Ordinarily, both householder and the removal men have fairly defined responsibilities (though a measure of flexibility on both sides is of course desirable)

Children: Children, who are naturally curious and can easily get in the way, may potentially be injured. The younger ones are best left with a neighbour or friend until it is time to leave.

Swings/Climbing frames: Generally dismantling these is one job you will do yourself, but be careful not to lose the bolts. If wish us to arrange dismantling please discuss this with our surveyor

Garage/Shed: Tie together garden tools, and prepare items to be lifted straight onto the vehicle.

Self assembly furniture: If you have any furniture of the home assembly type particularly if made of chipboard, please note that we recommend dismantling units before the move, as the joints are seldom strong enough to survive even careful handling if the furniture is moved whilst still assembled.

Washing machines: Secure your washing machine drum, and disconnect from water supply and electric.

Books: Books are very heavy, use our book cartons as they are smaller and easier to manage.

China & glass: Wrap each item individually in packing paper or bubble wrap, packing the heavier items first with lighter pieces on top. Remember that plates and dishes are packed vertically and not laid flat.

Moving in: Make sure that you (or some other responsible person) is on hand to admit the removal men. If no-one is there and a reasonable waiting time expires, you could find yourself landed with storage and re-delivery charges. Enquire how long the vehicle will wait should you be inadvertently delayed on the way. It can also save time and confusion if you stand at the entrance and specify the location of each item as it is carried in.
Helping the move along: If you follow the guidelines suggested on this page you will find the removal men themselves responding to your good sense with extra efficiency and relaxed good humour. You can also help the move along by remembering to pack the kettle last. A cup of tea all round is a gesture always much appreciated.

Tipping: There is, of course, no obligation to tip the men, but, as with all personal services, people like to reward extra attention, willing good humour or a job well done. If you feel that a reward has been earned, the driver or packer in charge will distribute any gratuity given amongst the crew.

WhatClients Say

Please browse our selection of testimonials from recent house moves, relocations and other services used.

  • Very professional in the whole process. Office helpful, efficient and prompt. Removal itself amazing - so quick and so thorough. All the way to Malta where their agents were very impressive and helpful. Given that moving is always traumatic and anxiety-making, Simpson’s took the load and didn’t worry me with unnecessary detail but delivered a seamless service. Really could not fault them and best of all their quote was by far the cheapest!
