Whether you decide to move to Paris, Nice, Bordeaux or a remote countryside village, Bishop’s Move will get you there.

Bishop's Move has a heritage of over 165 years of experience in the removals industry, and that includes Moving to France from the UK.

Moving abroad can be a daunting experience, but it doesn't have to be with Bishop’s Move. Our team undertakes weekly trips to France, and with years of combined experience, we can move you to the country with ease. 

Our first move to France was undertaken by a horse drawn pantechnicon and railway. Today, our highly recognisable yellow removal vans will transport your belongings directly to the door of your new home. We can also provide advice on how to move to France after Brexit in our guide.

Moving to or from France?

Why move to France?

Over the years, France has become an increasingly popular destination for thousands of expats that are in search of a sunnier, more relaxed lifestyle. The beautiful country has much to offer, including divine agricultural scenery and a broad range of culinary delights. France, especially Paris, has some of the most renowned museums in the world, including the Louvre and the Musee d’Orsay. France is also home to the tourist destination of the French Riviera in the southeast, which benefits from an immense 300 days of sunshine a year.

A big decision expats will need to consider is whether a countryside or city lifestyle is for them. For many, a slower paced life in the countryside is desirable, whereas for others a home in the City of Love is the dream. With many businesses considering a relocation to Paris, Bishop’s Move has a dedicated Business Relocation team on hand to handle all moves to the capital city.

Can I Move to France After Brexit?

You can still move to France after Brexit for periods of 1 to 4 years with visas and once there you can apply for permanent French Residency. If you are a UK national then you can stay in France for 90 days at a time without the need for a visa. It is still possible to move to France from the UK in 2022 but you should remember that you may need to return once your visa expires.

If you ever need to move back to the UK, we can also provide expert assistance for your relocation from France.

Guide to Moving to France


All the people who assisted in our move to France were great. From our first contact of the office, the professional team answered all our questions especially as it was all new with rules changing frequently since Brexit. The logistics were arranged and the team who packed our house in the UK, took care of all our belongings, which meant they arrived in France undamaged. Nothing was to much trouble for the couple of removal men who delivered our items in France. everyone was a credit to the companies involved . I would recommend you to anyone doing what we did. thank you all
