Brighton home removals to the French, Alps. Nice Man Grande Van!

Just before Christmas we had the pleasure of moving a lovely local couple moving house from Brighton to the mountains of France to start their new life due to work relocation. We were engaged to take care of their full corporate relocation package, including all their boxes and packing requirements based on a home visit quotation to assess their International removal needs.
Our packing service can be Full or Part packing, some people just want their kitchen items packing or certain precious valuables or antiques, others require a Full pack whereby we include the cost of providing all boxes and bubble wrap and professionally pack up the house or flat the day before the house move.
Having packed up the house, loaded up the removal van with their furniture, boxes and all important snowboards, we set off in the early hours to reach the Eurotunnel at 6am. Our drive through France via Reims and Lyon was a breeze thanks to the super-efficient French toll roads and by teatime the vista of the French Alps came into the distance. The couple travelled separately in their car and had arrived early to the new property and collected the keys ready for our arrival. We were amazed at their new 4 bed property (for the equivalent price of a 1 bed in Brighton!) set in a rural location outside of Grenoble, nestled in the foothills of the Alps, just perfect for weekend trips to the local ski slopes.
On arrival dusk had fallen as we were deep in the French countryside there were no streetlights so we set to work unloading the van by the light of the customer’s headlights to light our way and the internal removal van lights! House removals in the dark are never simple, added to this the icy steps and pitch black, much care was taken using rock salt etc to ensure everything was unloaded safely.
As with any move, the key is in the planning – if you are doing your own packing we suggest drawing up a room plan with colour coded labelling on the boxes to direct the removal guys to where everything needs to go. A little forethought and planning can save a lot of time and endless questions of ‘where do you want this to go?!’ Others may need a little more guidance – we are often asked to decide where furniture might go when people can’t make all the decisions on moving day – Nice Man Big Van interior design service is here for you!
As for our couple in France, they were thrilled the move went smoothly and have settled happily into their new life in the mountains for less than £3500.00 all inclusive. We stayed in a nice hotel in Grenoble centre managing to find some hot food before all the restaurants closed before beginning the early morning start for our 11 hour drive home again.
