Removal company - any currently operating?

Postby Ethan_Anda » Mon Jun 29, 2020 4:16 pm

Hi guys

I’ll be coming to Spain in the next couple of week to finalise the sale of my apartment. I need to shift my stuff whilst there, and get it transported over to UK.

Does anyone know if that will be possible, circa mid of July, or even better recommend a removal company that can do this? Was given one but told “everything arrived minus one box” - not exactly what I’m looking for.

Thanks guys

There are lots of adverts in the Sur in English. I have used Union Jack and friend used Roy Trevor. Both good service.

Lots advertise on the F.B groups and are going back and forth at the min but most seem to be one man bands. Personally i would only use an "offical" business

We used david dale when coming out. Their spanish base is in alicante but they come down here all the time

Thanks everyone

I’ll contact the guys above and see which one will be going back to UK whilst I’ll be there. Having a bad experience before I’d rather go for someone UK registered for tax purposes, not cos I’m snobby but simply has more protection if anything happens. Then again Jimbo the Scot seems very popular
