Removal service to Spain

Simpsons International Removals is a leading removal company, offering you a comprehensive range of services if you are looking to move your belongings to Spain, each tailored to meet different needs and budgets.

Road Freight Service – Dedicated or Part Loads

Road freight service is an excellent choice for European removals, especially for those seeking a balance between cost and speed. This service ensures that your goods are transported efficiently over land, providing a swift and budget-friendly option. You can decide to use either a dedicated or part load service with road freight.

Sea Freight Service – Container Shipping

For those who might be moving larger quantities of goods or seeking an even more cost-effective solution, sea freight services are also available. Whether that’s a full-load 20ft or 40ft container for larger moves or a part-load container for smaller quantities, sea freight is known for its economic value, especially for substantial moves, and while it may take longer than road transport, it offers a reliable and cost-effective solution for transporting your goods over longer distances.

Air Freight Service – For Small Moves

For the quickest transportation of your belongings to Spain, air freight is the recommended option. This express courier service is ideal for smaller moves, such as sending boxes or luggage. Air freight stands out for its speed, making it the perfect choice for those who need their items to arrive in Spain as quickly as possible. However, it is important to note that while air freight is the fastest method, it is generally more expensive than road or sea freight and is best suited for larger volumes of goods.

Removals to Spain Costs from UK

The cost of your International removal to Spain depends on a number of factors including where in the UK you are moving from and where in Spain you plan to move to.

The cost of moving to Spain also depends 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 Spain every year, we provide a cost-effective service when you consider the distances involved from say London to the Costa Del Sol.

We offer a range of removal options depending on your budget. This includes economy part load road freight or shared shipping container, dedicated road freight or full container load by sea or express air freight for small and urgent moves.

You can use our online cost calculator to get an initial price or for a more accurate estimate, we highly recommend booking a home or video survey to get a more formal quote for the cost of your move to Spain.

Yes, a UK citizen can move to Spain after Brexit, but the process has changed. Before Brexit, UK citizens enjoyed freedom of movement within the EU, allowing them to live and work in Spain without special visas.

Since Brexit, UK citizens are treated as non-EU nationals. UK citizens can still buy property and stay 90 days in any 180 days, so can spend 6 months of the year in Spain, but they must apply for and obtain a visa for longer stays or residency.

The exact type of visa required depends on the purpose of the stay, such as work, retirement, or joining family members. Additionally, UK citizens must meet Spanish immigration requirements, which could include providing proof of income, healthcare coverage, and a clean criminal record. The process is more complex and requires more documentation than prior to Brexit, but it remains feasible for UK citizens to move to Spain.

Another change is that you need to undergo customs clearance for your household removal to Spain. However, the experienced team at Simpsons International Removals will be able to handle that for you.

We provide a range of storage services for your belongings if you moving to Spain. We have storage facilities across the UK and can also store your goods in Spain until you are ready to receive them.

We have highly secure warehouses and can offer a range of flexible storage solutions depending on your needs including short term and longer term storage.

When relocating your belongings to Spain, Simpsons’ comprehensive packing services have you covered. Our expert packing teams excel in export wrapping your furniture and efficiently packing boxes to ensure their safe arrival in flawless condition. Our highly trained packing crews specialise in packing for overseas moves and have years of experience.

We offer a range of export quality double-walled boxes of different sizes including tea cartons, book cartons and bike cartons. Other packing materials include blanket wrap, flow pack, bubble wrap and secure packing tape.

We can also provide bespoke custom wood cases and crates for delicate and special items that need additional protection. Our service also includes specialised antique packing, ensuring these valuable items are meticulously protected.

With our extensive experience in managing delicate and fragile items, we assure that every piece, from everyday furniture to precious antiques, receives the highest level of care and professional handling throughout the moving process.

Insurance for your Move to Spain

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.

What type of removal service do you do for removals to Spain?

We have a variety of house removal services depending on your relocation needs. So no matter whether you are just moving a few boxes to Spain or moving your entire house contents, we have a cost-effective solution for you.

Dedicated removals service to Spain

If you are undertaking a large house removal to Spain then our dedicated removal service will suit you. You will be allocated your own dedicated removal van and packing team to take all your furniture and other goods from your home in the UK to your new home in Spain.

Small removals to Spain (part or shared load)

If you don’t have much stuff to take with you to Spain, then our shared load removal service is ideal.

We regularly transport people’s household belongings and furniture on a ‘European road train’. to all parts of Spain including Madrid, Barcelona and of course the popular Costas.

This furniture removals service is our most popular as the cost is shared amongst other customers moving to the same area of Spain. In fact, it’s usually cheaper than ‘man and van’ type removals service and your belongings are certainly a lot safer!

Box removal service for cheap removals to Spain

All our removals options are cost effective but if you only have a few boxes to send to Spain then our Excess Baggage or box service will likely be your cheapest option.

Moving to Spain checklist

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.
