If you are thinking of moving to Europe, whether to Spain, France, Eastern Europe, Switzerland or Scandinavia, Britannia Cestrian can offer a reliable European removal service.

European Removals

In addition to being members of the British Association of Removers (B.A.R.) Britannia are members of the European Moving Group (E.M.G.). These organisations represent European movers collectively operating throughout Europe with a vehicle fleet of over 1500 vehicles, employing over 8,000 staff.


Range of European Destinations

Here at Britannia Cestrian, we specialise in removals to and from BelgiumFranceGermanyHollandSpainPortugal. Due to the heavy volumes in traffic we transport, we currently offer a weekly service to most destinations.

Our bases in Alicante and Malaga are ideally situated for trunking consignments to the Spanish coastal regions, Portugal and Gibraltar.

Having depositories in these areas enable us to generate return loads to France and the UK offering more economical rates to our customers.

Due to the large volume we transport across Europe, we offer an economical “part-load” service to tie up delivery dates in conjunction with other Britannia customers, these will be agreed in advance of your departure to your destination. When trunking to our Spanish bases, they will agree delivery dates for you in advance.

Due to the ever increasing global relocation requirement. Britannia Cestrian has developed a range of dedicated services to Benelux countries, Germany and Switzerland. Offering a weekly scheduled service to all destinations.


Tailor-Made European Removals

For over twenty five years Britannia has moved household and personal effects for thousands of customers to every destination in Europe. Each and every situation and problem Britannia have experienced has built an invaluable local knowledge throughout Europe.  

As a result, Britannia Cestrian emphasise the necessity to assess the delivery/collection access. However, Britannia do not feel that you should worry too much regarding this. Whether the access road is narrow, the stairway is inaccessible, your property is secluded in a rural setting, with prior knowledge Britannia will endeavour to solve the problem. This information can be critical to ensure your move goes smoothly.


Skilled Removals Staff

In order to maintain our high standards Britannia make sure that all their staff receive the highest level of removals training from our two dedicated training centres.


Packing and Preparation

Packing for a European move is a specialist skill and Britannia have experienced and professionally trained staff to provide this service for you. Using a modern range of environmentally friendly purpose made packing materials Britannia’s staff will arrive at your home to prepare your possessions for collection. Detailed inventories are prepared for the onward move to destination or storage.

I first used Britannia in 2011, very professional and competitive then and equally so now in 2020. Exceptional... inter-personal skills of "Movers" gained from many years insight into peoples lives, are much appreciated and I note being passed on to Apprentices. Britannia at its best during stressful times with Covid on more

We used Britannia Cestrian on 1st Sept for our house move from Chester. They were very professional and efficient from... start to finish. We were visited by them under strict covid rules in order to gain an understanding of our requirements and to provide a quote and were dealt with as human beings throughout the process. Delivery of packing materials was timely and when I ran out of packing paper (I packed myself due to covid restrictions) they were on the ball sending more out. We had a provisional date which kept moving but along the way they did their best to help us. Finally moving day arrived and the removers were just outstanding. I am so glad we got the professionals in. On arrival at our new property everything was left clean and tidy and not one item was damaged. Our clothes were even hung in the wardrobe. All in all a very positive experience during a very stressful time. Thank you all very much. Huge thumbs up from us. 👍read more

The 2 men who came on Tuesday 25th worked hard and efficiently all day but still left a fair mount of packing for the... following day. On the day of the move, Wednesday 26th, completion of the sale was finalised by 11am but we couldn't vacate the premises until 1pm due to the amount still to be packed. The addition of a 3rd man did little to help and in fact the quality of packing he did was hurried and not up to standard. Overall we would recommend more

We chose Britannia as they seemed the most professional of the three removal companies that we approached. They were... clearly experienced in moving long distances across the country. They did not disappoint. The removal men could not have been more helpful or considerate. Our new house does not have the easiest of access but they coped admirably. I would thoroughly recommend them - indeed we have done do to our nephew and his wife who are moving south more

I would highly recommend Britannia Cestrian. They have assisted me with various library moves over the last few years... within in Cheshire including Storyhouse and more recently in Flintshire. They are highly organised and handle the book stock and specialist items with real care. They are always helpful and professional and nothing is ever too much trouble. The company will help you plan your move to ensure that everything runs smoothly. A top class service and real value for money!read more

I have always received great service from this company. I have used them on several occasions, both for removals and... storage. They are always polite, friendly, helpful and professional. I have moved several times and the guys have always been punctual and very careful with my belongings. The storage side of the business is also great. The price for my container was very reasonable and it was stored in a clean, dry and secure environment. Whenever I have had cause to email the office, my mails have been answered quickly and politely at all times. I wouldn't use anyone else and highly recommend them. more

My wife and I were very happy with the service provided right from the first contact with the request for a quote to... the offer to collect the boxes and packing materials after we have finally moved into our new home. Special mention needs to be made for the driver who was loading and unloading during the hottest days of the year. He was courteous, considerate and friendly at all times. He and the team coped very well with the move into our fourth floor flat - they were careful not cause any marks to the recently refurbished entrance foyer for the block of more

Used Britannia for the first time a couple of weeks ago. Very happy all round, good contact with head office when... needed, lads were very cheerful and helpful. They really struggled with a wardrobe refusing to fit around staircase. eventually they stripped it down to smaller sections to complete the move. Would definitely recommend to any more
