The Essential Guide for Moving to France (11 Things You Need To Know)

Moving to France can be a huge hassle for anyone and this is only increased if you’re not well prepared. Here are 11 things you need to know before your big move to live in France. These 11 things to know will make the move easier for you. They will take some of the stress out the way being prepared can.

Key Takeaways:

  • Decide if you’re going to hire a professional removal company or if you’re going to handle the entire move on your own.
  • Remember to cancel unwanted deliveries such as magazines, subscriptions, newspapers and redirect the rest of your mail to your new address. Beware that once you’re in France, you’ll need to have your name, not just your address, on your door or mailbox.
  • Also wash a final load of laundry before you move! You don’t want to take dirty clothing or towels with you on moving day.

“Relocating to a brand new country is exciting. Exploring a new culture, tasting new cuisines, meeting new people.”
