Postby Hirsty » Mon Aug 17, 2015 6:31 pm

Hi All, I need to move the last of my stuff from UK to Andalucia...not enough for a 'removals' company. Any recommendations for a part load/small van full?? Ta
UPDATE.......All sorted; Jimbo and Aurther will get coffee and choice bicycles.

We use and are very happy with JimbotheScot. We shortly will be receiving our third part load with him.

You can find his website from the info above. It shows his schedule on there.

We've used Tony Roam based at Cardiff and torrox. He's very helpful with good prices. His website is http://www.euroam.co.uk. This is now correct link

Jimbothescot vote from us too. Everything arrived in perfect condition, until I dropped a plate and our dog pulled some bubble wrap out of the box and broke a beautiful cup!

Like so many posters the OP seems not to realise how big an area Andalucia is....if you put your location in your profile Hirsty, you might get more relevant info. For example, there is a man with van who takes and brings small animals. He will fit in some parcels to or from and I understand charges are reasonable. He is based in Riogordo, which might be round the corner from you, or several hundred kilometres away!

Jimbo holds his hand up to having overlooked Sally`s mails. Sally`s mail asked a specific question which I was going to investigate when I had a moment or two and I forgot about ! Then her mail dropped down the list among other incoming mails and I lost track of it.

Contact has now been made with Sally, my apologies sally.

Hi jimbothescot,
Sounds like you need Windows 10 Cortana to remind you.................. :lol:

We too can recommend Jimbo, he has just collected our 3 part load, he is so busy that he can be difficult to reach but worth the effort, he and Arthur are great. They like coffee, 2 sugars and chocolate biscuits :thumbup:

Hi

We found C&A Euro Van Services excellent service and very good price and friendly, highly recommended. In fact they are taking our last 7 boxes to Nerja on Friday. Found them on 'anyvan.com'

I too can recommend Jim. We bought some furniture from John Lewis and he has a system where it can be delivered to a central point and then he picks it up om route. It is a cost effective way of getting larges purchase from the UK to Spain.

I think this must be the Jim appreciation society. I have also used him and can recommend him. First Class!
