Extra services: Excess baggage services

Excess Baggage

If you have only couple of items of personal effects to transport, a suitcase, a bag or even a single box we can arrange to have your items picked up, transported and delivered using one of our trusted and highly respected excess baggage partners in the business.

European Moving have access to a network of expert resources to move your items anywhere within Europe. This service is particularly suited to expats, foreign nationals, students, holiday makers and businesses and offers a wide range of options to suit your personal requirements.

Holiday Luggage

You may have booked your flight using a budget airline but when you go to add a bag or suitcase this often works out very expensive and what you thought was a cheap travel solution no longer seems to be as cost effective as you anticipated. European Moving can arrange to have your bags collected from your home and delivered to your destination ready for your arrival, meaning you can avoid those long queues at the airport and start enjoying your holiday sooner!

Oversized and Awkward Shaped Luggage

We often wonder if our luggage is too heavy or does not meet the long list of requirements set by the airlines which are also likely to be different from one to the next. The good news is that there is no item too big or too heavy that can’t be transported using European Moving’s excess baggage service. You will have the piece of mind knowing that you do not have to worry about turning up at the airport just to be told that you cannot take it or if it possible you will be charged a ridiculous amount of money to do so.

Student Services

We all know that one thing students don’t usually have much of is money. Sending your personal belonging’s using our Excess baggage service is not only easy and reliable but is cost effective and is sure to save you money and time.

Business Services

You need to get the contents of your office drawers and filing cabinets picked up and delivered safely and securely but it is just not possible to carry them on the train or in the car? European Moving’s Excess Baggage Service is the ideal solution to do just that. We have a range of options available to also include full comprehensive insurance cover and tracking.

Extra services: Furniture hoists, external lifts and elevator hire

Each and every move is different and offers its own set of challenges, some big, some small. European Moving are experienced in finding solutions for all types of obstacles to ensure the move goes with the minimal amount of stress and inconvenience for the customer.

A lot of buildings in several European towns and cities simply to not allow for furniture to be taken into the property the conventional way. European Moving have a network of highly trained professionals across the whole of Europe to assist, together with specialised equipment to suit your individual requirements.

Whether you need to get your sofa through a ground floor window or the entire contents of your home up to the 5th floor we will almost certainly have a solution for you.

A furniture hoist is a truck mounted lifting platform capable of raising heavy loads to high rise building’s, they are also referred to as elevator cranes, furniture cranes, removal lifts or lifting hoists.

Even if it is possible to take your furniture though the doors, up the elevator and into your 5th floor property, this is very time consuming, exhausting and can be expensive. Using a furniture lift will make this task a whole lot easier and offers the following benefits;

  • All equipment is supplied with a trained operator
  • No scaffolding is required
  • Saves time and money
  • Can lift up to 15m3 per hour
  • Both hourly and day rates available
  • Fast installation

Please let your move coordinator know if you would like to add this to your booking and they will ensure that you receive a top-quality service at the most competitive prices.

Extra services: Shuttle Service

One of the first things you should consider when planning your move is what type of vehicle you will require, and will it be able to access all addresses. This is something that is very often overlooked but is very important to ensure a smooth moving process.

At European Moving we use 3.5 tonne luton vans to transport your belongings, we have found this type of vehicle to be the easiest and most cost-effective way to carry out your removal across Europe, either by using 1 or multiple vans.

You are sure to have been offered all types services using different moving vehicles. Using anything bigger than a 3.5 tonne luton van could potentially cause you problems when it comes to access, we are sure it is not possible for most people to take collection or delivery from an Arctic lorry!

Whilst we are confident that we can access most places using a 3.5 tonne van there will always be times when even this is not possible. In these instances, European Moving can arrange for a local shuttle service to ferry your goods from the moving van to your home.

Please inform your move coordinator at the earliest opportunity if you think you will require a shuttle service or if you have any concerns at all regarding access. They will be happy to discuss your options in more detail.

The cost of this service will depend on the location; However, we can guarantee the most competitive prices without compromising on standards. Your individual requirements will be considered to ensure the best possible service.
