France still stands as one of the most beautiful and inviting countries on the Old Continent. However, although it would be nice to simply wake up in Paris and start your life there right away, the process of moving to France from USA is not quite so simple. You won’t only have to deal with the tasks related to transferring your belongings but also all the legalities and paperwork that come with moving overseas. Luckily, Transparent International can assist you with both aspects. For premier moving assistance and help with every step in the process, reach out to us today and begin your adventure!

Finding simple solutions to all your relocation needs

At Transparent International, we believe that everyone deserves to enjoy the experience of moving to and living in another country. As this change comes with many opportunities, we will ensure that you are able to explore them all. Our expert international movers and packers will give you the head start you need to feel right at home, even when in a foreign country.

A common misconception when hiring an overseas moving company is that high-quality relocation services also come with high costs. We are aware that this move can put a strain on your budget, which is why we have strived to make all of our services as affordable as possible. Another great solution is asking for our international moving quotes, through which you can find out the estimated cost of your relocation and plan your moving budget accordingly. We are in the business of serving our clients, so we make sure to provide you with a precise estimate.

Successfully moving to France from the USA involves many tasks

An international relocation such as moving to France from USA does not involve the same steps as moving to another city within the US. The process of overseas relocation can be complicated and challenging. Due to the distance of your move, your items require special attention and care. They also need to be delivered on time.

Furthermore, you may require additional time to prepare and plan out your move. With the help of our international household movers, you don’t need to worry about damage to your valuables or late shipments. Our movers will take good care of all of your inventory. We will send experienced workers not only to pack your household items efficiently but also to transport them safely to your new location in France.

Quality packing materials ensure the safety of your items

Since your items will be transported to another continent, either by sea or air, proper materials and packing techniques need to be employed. If this task is done haphazardly, it can cause a lot of trouble on the other side, with your items being damaged or destroyed. To ensure that this misstep is avoided, you need professional overseas packing and crating solutions in order to get the job done. Our specially-made boxes and crates are designed to fit every item, from your TV to your bulky furniture.

Another concern that many people have regarding international relocations is the laws regarding import and export. While some items you will have no trouble bringing into France, others will require dealing with customs agents and the accompanying paperwork. If you are not familiar with the laws and regulations of this matter, it may cause you a lot of stress and anxiety.

Fortunately, we have a wide network of specialists that work on finding the best import & export solutions for your relocation to France. With our partners across the globe, you won’t have to worry about your items passing through the border safely.

You will be able to use your car right after you move to France from the USA

Having a car in a foreign country can help you explore it better, as well as save you time until you learn all about its public transportation options. However, international car transportation is not something that you can handle yourself. Since you won’t exactly be able to drive to France, professional help is not only beneficial but also imperative. Your vehicle has certain maintenance requirements when it comes to transporting it. Our experts will make sure to follow all the safety regulations and deliver it to your doorstep in pristine condition.

Door-to-door delivery to every corner of the world

Speaking of delivering items, Transparent International is proud to be able to provide our customers with door-to-door delivery that is efficient and affordable. This method reduces the need for organizing a pick-up, saving you both time and money. Our staff will receive your items from point A and deliver them to point B without issues and on time. Moreover, door-to-door delivery doesn’t have to entail only your relocation. You can use it to send packages to your loved ones back home when you feel nostalgic.

Arrange for a safe transfer of your finances when moving to France from USA

There are many American ex-pats living in France, with over 100,000 of them around the country. While finding a job as an ex-pat won’t be too difficult, you will need to have a French bank account. This will call for exchanging your US dollars for European euros. Although you can actually lose money if you choose a subpar exchange rate, this doesn’t have to be the case.

Their staff will also guide you through the process of opening a new bank account. Try to have this done as fast as possible so that you can access your finances right after you arrive.

Enlist the help of licensed and insured international movers

You will likely have a lot of fears when it comes to the safety of your items when moving from USA to France. There are many moving companies out there, and sadly a lot of them can be potential scammers. With us, there is no need to worry about any additional or hidden charges and fees. We will provide you with an accurate moving estimate, and you will know exactly which services you can expect from your movers. Furthermore, we are licensed and insured, so there is no need to worry about your items while they are in transit.

Furthermore, good communication is the key to a successful relocation. You can count on our moving professionals to communicate and let you know about each step of your relocation.

The major changes after moving from USA to France

Moving from the USA to France brings several significant changes. Firstly, the French prioritize sitting down for meals, including breakfast, and view lunch as a socializing opportunity. Also, businesses take longer to respond to inquiries.

Overall, the corporate world operates differently. If you plan on moving to Paris, belongings will be delivered in smaller vans due to limited parking space and overall smaller streets. An important detail is that certain US states have reciprocal exchange agreements with France, so it’s necessary if that applies to you with your local DMV.

Additionally, homes in France are almost half the size of US homes. Even the bed sizes will be different. Built-in closets are uncommon in France, and French employees enjoy more generous paid vacation compared to their US counterparts. With an unbelievable 30-day paid leave, you will be in for a pleasant surprise after moving from USA to France. Lastly, tipping is expected in the US but not a significant part of French culture. If you think you got good service, you can tip, however, you’re not obligated.

Explore the beauty France has to offer

France offers a wealth of beauty and attractions to explore. From the romantic streets of Paris to the stunning beaches of the French Riviera, there is something for everyone:

  • Take in iconic sights like the Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, and Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris.
  • Immerse yourself in the breathtaking landscapes of Provence, known for its lavender fields and charming villages.
  • Visit the historical marvel of Mont Saint-Michel.
  • Explore the magnificent châteaux of the Loire Valley.
  • Indulge in the world-renowned cuisine and wines of Burgundy or Champagne.
  • Don’t forget the allure of the French Riviera, with its glamorous cities like Nice and Cannes.

After moving from the USA to France, there’s much more to see than just Paris. France truly offers an array of premium destinations to create unforgettable experiences!
