Whether you are looking for a professional mover for an international relocation or simply want to move within the country, this guide will help you understand what the Italian market looks like and how you can choose the moving company that best suits your needs.
Italy’s moving landscape is characterised by three main types of companies:
- A very small number of large firms operating nationwide
- Hundreds of local moving companies serving their regional area
- Quote comparison platforms that partner up with tens of different companies
Who should I choose for an international relocation?
Given the average high cost of moving to/from abroad, it comes without saying that you should base your choice on two main factors: quote (make sure to compare at the very least 3 different ones) and reviews (read everything you can about the company before finalising your choice). The links below are helpful examples of well established, experienced international movers, but you should ultimately look at a wider amount of options.
Movers for domestic moves
