If your consignment is of a small nature, the transit time scale is of little importance, or you are simply working to a budget, then our part load service / shared load consignments will be the obvious choice. Whilst still offering a fixed date collection of your goods and maintaining compatibility with a packing service, this cost-saving service still provides first class services to all popular destinations for removals in Europe.

In the transition period following the UK leaving the EU, (up until 31st December 2020), free movement of goods and personal effects between the UK and EU / EEA countries, continues.
Therefore, shipping of personal effects and household goods to your home in The Canary Islands can continue as before. Some changes to residency status may apply since Brexit, so you should seek advice on your personal situation.
Once the transition period ends and Brexit takes full effect, regulations for shipping and removals to European countries may change.
You will receive assistance with customs clearance when moving to the Canary Islands.
Your move manager will help with documentation as well and guide you through customs procedures and requirements.
We would recommend taking out Shipment Protection Cover for peace of mind whilst your belongings are on their journey.
Whilst we have expert packers who specialise in international removals and use accredited shipping lines who take special care of your personal belongings, we cannot control every eventuality.
Just as you will likely have home contents insurance in the UK and travel insurance for your family, we recommend you discuss with your Move Manager the available options for protecting your belongings whist they are in transit.
The cost of your International removals to The Canary Islands depends on a number of factors including where in the UK you are moving from and where in The Canary Islands you plan to move to.
The removal costs when moving to The Canary Islands depend on how much you are taking – the price per cubic foot drops significantly as your volume increases.
However, as a large number of people move from the UK to The Canary Islands every year, we provide a cost-effective service. Whether you are looking for a large shipping container removal, or a smaller move, we will be able to help you relocate from the UK.
We have a variety of house removal and shipping services depending on your relocation needs. So no matter whether you are just shipping a few boxes to The Canary Islands or moving your entire house contents, we have a cost effective solution for you.
If you are undertaking a large house removal to The Canary Islands then our dedicated removal services will suit you. You will be allocated your own team to take all your furniture and other goods from your home in the UK to your new home in The Canary Islands.
If you don’t have much stuff to take with you to The Canary Islands, then our shared load removal service is ideal.
This furniture removals service is our most popular as the cost is shared amongst other customers moving to the same area of The Canary Islands.
All our shipping options are cost effective but if you only have a few boxes to send to The Canary Islands then our Excess Baggage or box shipping will likely be your cheapest option.
Moving personal effects to the Canary Islands is easy. Transportation by The Canary Islands usually takes around 2-3 weeks for a dedicated load or 3-6 weeks for a part load.

Although Simpsons will take care of all the details they can for you, this convenient checklist will make preparing for the move as simple and worry free as possible.
Moving out: Before the removal men arrive, be clear in what they are contracted to do and what you are expected to do. If in doubt, ask the surveyor or a member of our staff. Ordinarily, both householder and the removal men have fairly defined responsibilities (though a measure of flexibility on both sides is of course desirable)
Children: Children, who are naturally curious and can easily get in the way, may potentially be injured. The younger ones are best left with a neighbour or friend until it is time to leave.
Swings/Climbing frames: Generally dismantling these is one job you will do yourself, but be careful not to lose the bolts. If wish us to arrange dismantling please discuss this with our surveyor
Garage/Shed: Tie together garden tools, and prepare items to be lifted straight onto the vehicle.
Self assembly furniture: If you have any furniture of the home assembly type particularly if made of chipboard, please note that we recommend dismantling units before the move, as the joints are seldom strong enough to survive even careful handling if the furniture is moved whilst still assembled.
Washing machines: Secure your washing machine drum, and disconnect from water supply and electric.
Books: Books are very heavy, use our book cartons as they are smaller and easier to manage.
China & glass: Wrap each item individually in packing paper or bubble wrap, packing the heavier items first with lighter pieces on top. Remember that plates and dishes are packed vertically and not laid flat.
Moving in: Make sure that you (or some other responsible person) is on hand to admit the removal men. If no-one is there and a reasonable waiting time expires, you could find yourself landed with storage and re-delivery charges. Enquire how long the vehicle will wait should you be inadvertently delayed on the way. It can also save time and confusion if you stand at the entrance and specify the location of each item as it is carried in.
Helping the move along: If you follow the guidelines suggested on this page you will find the removal men themselves responding to your good sense with extra efficiency and relaxed good humour. You can also help the move along by remembering to pack the kettle last. A cup of tea all round is a gesture always much appreciated.
Tipping: There is, of course, no obligation to tip the men, but, as with all personal services, people like to reward extra attention, willing good humour or a job well done. If you feel that a reward has been earned, the driver or packer in charge will distribute any gratuity given amongst the crew.
Utility Bills: Gas, Electricity, Water & Telephone
Banks/Building Society: Credit cards, standing orders
