The cost of shipping is all dependent upon how much you need to ship, and how far. Read up on all you need to know about international shipping to your chosen country.

Shipping Container Costs to France

France is a European country with a bit of everything. Hear the name and people don’t know what to think of first. There’s the wine and cheese, the cosmopolitan cities, the countryside villages, the snowy mountains, the Mediterranean beaches, the list goes on and on. It’s not surprising that France is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Of course, the icing on the French cake is Paris, Europe’s most fashionable city and home to some of the most iconic buildings in the world. If you’re thinking of moving to France, you’re bound to find somewhere that suits you.

Different shipping options

When moving internationally, there are two main shipping options available: sea and air. Sending your belongings by plane is faster but comparatively expensive, while using a container ship is slower and cheaper. At MoveHub, we recommend that you choose ocean shipping as it’s much better value for money and you can fit more in a shipping container. It just requires a bit of advanced planning. You also need to choose between a Full Container Load (FCL) and a Less than Full Container Load (LCL), which is based on how much stuff you’re bringing. Most of our suppliers will provide you with a full door-to-door shipping service, but it’s best to check with them before you agree on any terms.

Major shipping routes

France is well served by big, experienced shipping ports all along its coastlines. The largest French port is Marseille-Fos, which sits on the Mediterranean coast and deals with most of the containers heading into southern France. At the other end of the country is Le Havre, France’s second largest port and one of the main entry points for northern-bound cargo. Other big ports include Dunkirk, Brest and Nantes. Believe it or not, there are also some pretty major inbound ports, such as the Port of Paris and the Port of Lyon. So, you can rest assured that France has more than enough ports.

French customs

If you want to get your container through French customs without any major hiccups, it’s wise to meet all their requirements. Most importantly, you need to declare all the items that you’re bringing into France by creating an inventory. Make sure you are clear and specific so that the customs officials know what is supposed to be inside each box. It’s also very important that you get your hands on a Certificate of Change of Residence from the French Consulate. This is proof that you’ve lived outside France for the past 12 months and it will help you avoid paying any duty on your goods. Don’t worry, your shipping company will help you with the French customs process. See below to see which items are prohibited at the French border.
