Default Moving to France

Hi everyone.
Myself and my French partner are moving to France soon. I was wondering if anyone could recommend (or has) a removals company?
Its not a full house move, around 6 to 10 m3 mostly boxes moving from Newcastle upon Tyne to Igny. I have a full inventory but the issue we are having is no-one will commit to dates which is no help as we'll be working between countries until the start of October. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated!
Adam.

Just a thought - have you considered hiring a van and driving yourselves? You can hire from the bigger rental firms in the uk and leave the vehicule in France. You can drive up to 3,500 kg vans on an ordinary license.

We did this many many years ago and it worked out well, with the family helping to pack and unpack the van. It might be worth comparing costs unless money is not a worry and you prefer to have it done painlessly by a removal company.

Hi and thanks for the reply.
Unfortunately I don't drive and my partner has never driven a car here never mind a van. Times like this I regret not having a licence!
Cheers.
