You should always insure your goods against damage, theft or loss and use a company who is experienced in transporting goods between the UK and Spain. Household removals both nationally and internationally can range from a half day removal to a full week’s service depending on the amount of goods you have to pack and move.

Most experienced removals companies on the Costa del Sol transport goods to and from the UK at least once a week, and whether you have a part load or a full load, they should be able to cater to your requirements, depending where and when you want your goods moved.
