Moving to Italy
Italy is as diverse as it is beautiful, from romatic villages to buzzing cities, snow-covered mountains to sunny beaches. And with such rich culture, history and beauty it is no wonder so many people from the UK and the rest of Europe decide to move to Italy. Moving to Italy is an exciting step, yet many people find the process of moving their worldly possessions to their Italian home very stressful, due to the challenges associated with moving overseas, and to Italy in particular. Choosing the right removal company for the job can eliminate many of the headaches and make the process much easier.
Nomad International is an expert in removals to Italy, having moved hundreds of families’ goods to Italy over the last five years. Many happy customers will attest to Nomad’s excellent service in conducting removals to Italy. Nomad is the perfect choice for moving to and from Italy – for more reasons why, click here.
When planning your move, it is important to ask your removal company whether they will be taking your goods by road or by sea container, because there will be significant implications for the length of time it will take for your goods to arrive. Sea containers can take up to 16 weeks to arrive because they do not travel directly to their final destination, but stop at many ports along the way, including ports outside the EU. Delays at ports are very common, making it impossible to know when they will arrive. Overland transport is much faster, typically arriving within 3 days of leaving the UK. Nomad International uses overland transport exclusively, ensuring your goods will arrive at your door in record time.
It is critical that your goods are transported to your door, not just to the port. There are countless stories of British families having a container full of goods arrive at their nearest port, and being told that they have an hour to empty the container (themselves) before it will be taken away! Nomad International will always deliver your goods to your home (and into the appropriate rooms), using our own professional team. We can even unpack your furniture for you and remove the packaging materials if you would like.
Remember that if a vehicle or container transporting your goods will be leaving the EU en route, your goods will be required to clear customs on arrival, which involves a significant amount of paperwork which often has to be completed by you, in person at customs. Nomad’s vehicles travel direct between the UK and Italy, never leaving the EU. We complete all of the transport and customs documentation for you.
Most removal companies don’t actually travel to Italy themselves – instead they “sub” the work out to other transport firms, including general hauliers, who may not use specialised vehicles for furniture transport, and they rarely even tell the customer that they are doing this. Nomad transports your goods from door-to-door with our own team and our own vehicles throughout the entire journey, staying with them the whole time.
Many properties in Italy are difficult to access – steep ascents, narrow roads and tiny lanes are very common! Nomad International has years of experience in dealing with these challenges, and is well-equipped to access your property. For example, our specialised on-board porter vehicles can guarantee access into narrow streets where trucks cannot pass.
Nomad can transport goods of any volume, from a few boxes to entire country homes. We are also equipped to transport cars, boats and motorbikes. Importantly, you only pay for the space you use.
Nomad has very regular services to and from Italy, with our own vehicles in Italy every two weeks.

Removals from Italy to the UK

New: Another Option for Moving to Italy (at Reduced Cost)
While we prefer to conduct all of our removals door-to-door ourselves, we have come to understand that our clients also appreciate the opportunity to consider a more cost-effective option, while still ensuring quality. To this end, we have started working with a trusted partner in Italy for selected removals. Relocations from the UK to Italy are return loads for our partners, since they are based in Italy, so they are able to provide quality removal services (they are members of the British Association of Removers, BAR, like us), but at a lower cost than we can. Like us, they will of course deliver everything into your home, including placing everything into the correct rooms. And like us, they can provide packing (and even unpacking) services too.
We would never subcontract out any part of a removal without telling the customer of course – instead, this will be offered to you as an option for your removal to Italy. If you would like to go ahead with this option, we will still manage the entire job for you including the quotation process, insurance, answering any questions and remaining as your point of contact the whole time. This has been a successful and cost-effective solution for the clients we have helped in this way, and we expect that it will be popular in future too.
