Completed my drivers license exchange with Annabelle. Absolutely perfect customer service and execution of getting the right requirements and time line was much earlier than expected.

We have used and are still using HCB services for our relocation from Canada to France. We have been very impressed with the professionalism and dedication that HCB staff particularly, Juliette and Richard, have applied to our relocation project. All our needs were met at the highest level with every process explained and executed in the proper sequence and timing to effect a smooth transition into French life. We feel very safe and confident with the HCB services provided and would recommend without hesitation their services to those who plan relocation to France.

I enlisted the services of HCB to help help with the importation and registration of our car from the UK to France as part of our relocation. From start to finish Annabelle and the team handled everything with speed and care. Thorough responses to all of my questions and assistance all the way through the (lengthy — thanks Brexit & bureaucracy!) process. They saved me many headaches as trying to find the required information is rather difficult, even as a French speaker! Would definitely recommend without hesitation.

I have had the opportunity to partner with French Connections on drivers licenses, Cartes Vitale, and a Carte Grise. In each case, my expectations were greatly exceeded. It’s no secret that a service company lives and dies by its people, and in this regard, French Connections is unmatched. Silvia, Annabelle, and Jenya are incredibly responsive, knowledgeable, proactive, innovative, thorough, and relentless in their advocacy. Seldom has a company’s performance so matched its marketing: French Connections allows you to enjoy what’s best about this wonderful country.
