Removals To Italy

Moving abroad can be a stressful time, so it's best to organise your transportation services for your belongings well in advance. If you're looking for assistance with removals to Italy with items such as your furniture and other bulky possessions, there are various types of shipping on offer which can help the move go smoothly.

Shipping can be organised to various cities, including Milan, Rome, Naples, Genoa, Florence, Palermo, Venice, Verona and many other locations. It can all be completed at the click of a mouse by booking online, which makes it much easier and quicker.

How to prepare for removals to Italy

When booking your shipping, make sure you know exactly which services you're paying for, to avoid any confusion later. The first step in your move to Italy will be obtaining a quotation. Shiply offers you free online quotes tool so you can obtain an approximate estimate for the costs of your move

Some people find it simpler and less of a hassle to obtain a quote online by inputting details such as their address, their destination and the items that are to be shipped. After the quotation has been finalised, the shipping company will begin making arrangements for the move.

The next steps

The moving process should begin with professional packing services at your home, or at the furniture's location, followed by loading of the items on to the transportation vehicle. A team of professional removals staff should arrive to transport the items on the pre-arranged day.

The move should be properly documented and co-ordinated by the removals company, many of which will employ a European move manager, who will personally oversee the process from start to finish. This takes all of the strain away from you, the customer, knowing that your belongings are in safe hands for the duration of the journey. Transportation should be by a purpose-built removals vehicle to ensure none of your items are damaged.

Arriving in Italy

Once the items arrive in Italy, they are transported by road to your pre-arranged destination. You normally have several choices of how you wish your items to be handled once in Italy. If you've arranged for a direct service, the professional removals crew will take the load direct to your new home. Then, they will unload and unpack your belongings at your new residence.

Alternatively, the items can be taken to the removals firm's own depot. If you have booked storage, they will be stored at a secure storage facility. It's possible to arrange short or long-term storage. Once you're ready for delivery, your items will be transported to your residence on a pre-arranged date.

Customs requirements for removals to Italy

It's useful to be aware of customs legislation when moving to Italy. The transportation company should be able to assist you with advice. Alternatively, useful information can be found on the International Association of Movers' website

Who Will Carry Out My Delivery?

When Will I Receive A Quote?

You will typically start to receive quotes within 30 minutes. If you are worried about the lack of quotes, try adding some more detail to your listing as transport providers may be unsure of dimensions or weight and feel unable to provide an accurate quote. If your delivery is urgent, you can try our 'featured delivery' feature which moves your listing to the top of the search page for couriers.

How Many Quotes Will I Receive?

Whilst there is no guarantee of quotes, 98% of our listings receive at least 3 quotes, so you are likely to find someone who can undertake the delivery of your items.

Does Shiply Provide Packing Materials?

If your item requires packing materials or extra care then you should make sure this is highlighted in your listing and discussed with any transport provider whose quote you are considering. Couriers on Shiply are able to provide all levels of service and can help pack your items, just ensure you inform them of your needs.

Will My Goods Be Tied Up Securely?

Transport providers will almost always tie up an item in the transport vehicle, as the risk of damage from moving around during transit is high. You should always confirm safety precautions and packing needs with transport providers before accepting a quote.

Can Items Be Taken Upstairs?

Yes, items can be taken upstairs if needed, and can also be assembled. Transport providers on Shiply are happy to provide these services, but you should ensure that you are mentioning these requirements in your listings as it may mean a second person is required for the move.

Can I Travel With My Goods?

The majority of transport providers on Shiply are only insured for the transportation of goods, however, some are also able to take people. If you need to travel with your goods, make sure to mention this in your listing and highlight this to any courier who quotes on your listing.

What If I Need To Cancel My Booking?

If you have accepted a quote and paid the deposit but wish to cancel the delivery, then you should first inform your chosen transport provider that you no longer require the delivery. You should then contact us at to have your deposit refunded.

Can I Change The Address Of The Delivery?

If you have not yet accepted a quote then you are able to change the address of your listing. Note that editing details of your listing after publishing will result in active quotes being voided, so you will have to wait for new quotes to come in. If you have already accepted a quote and need to change the address, please let your transport provider know and contact us at .
